I'm looking at buying a roof top tent to fit on a Rackmaster roof rack on a defender. Does anyone know who makes the ARB version? Is it the same as Howling Moon?
If anyone who has tried the ARB or Eezi-awn can let me know what they think of them it'd be appreciated.
Cheers, Scoota

Slightly off topic but how easy are the RTT's to lift on and off your car. Would love to get one but there is zero room under my garage door to leave the tent on top of my vehicle all the time and there's no way I'll leave the car outside.

Make sure you give back more than you take

I'm using an Eezi-Awn....Love it..Simple Operation...Robust Quality..comes from a pedigree background being made for the South African Army.
Just be careful of the cheap Chinese (eBay) imports. They are fine with little use, but are prone to early failure.
Cheers.

Roof Top Tents on average are around 50kgs...
Taking them on and off is about a 20minute job when you get it down pat....
Most of the fold out type like howling moon, ARB, etc etc,,, are a bit of a pain to pack away in the mornings....
Dingo Doza is a REAL pain...Almost a two man job...
Maggiolina is the pick of the crop but really expensive..(the wind up style)
