Does anyone have any experience with the Aussie Traveller Rooftop Tent? I am considering buying one and would like to hear about the pros and cons from anyone that has one or had one in the past.

For example, is it difficult to get up and down the ladder to the roof? Does it get much dust inside?

All comments appreciated.

Gidday,The big problem with rooftop tents is that if you want to go anywhere you have to fold everything up and when you get back put it all up again.That would be a pain in the a#&e.Get a good dome tent would be the best way.
Hope this helps,

Hi Kevin
We have an Aussie Traveller and at this stage, while travelling 4WD tracks, wouldn't do it any other way. It is not the right set up if you plan on staying in one spot for days, making day trips here and there for reasons already given. Our first big trip was five and half months - Plenty Highway, Tanami Track, Bungle Bungles, Cape Leveque, Gibb River Road, Kalumbaru, Kakadu, Gulf Track and back to Sydney. Moved on most days and found it easy. Last year we spent five months travelling - Simpson Desert, East and West Macdonald Ranges, Arnhem Land (Gove Peninsular), Gulf Track etc and back to Sydney.
You are not towing anything, your bed is always made and the beauty of this brand is that you have a completely sealed room for protections from the bighties and for cold nights for example in Alice Springs area around June/July. We are retired and find the ladder, putting up and packing up no problem - just work as a team.
PS This year 'The Cape' and where ever else the four wheels take us
PPS We have the en suite model
