I have one and its great because i have the whole left side and the rear of the troopy covered . Its very quick to set up . It can rain all it likes when i am camping because i am not going to get wet . Yes you need to put 4 poles up and 4 ropes but its quick . It takes me literally 2 minutes to pack up . The pole bag is about 1250mm long and i keep it in the back of the troopy along with the bag for the pegs . I have had it up in quite strong wind and as long as it is pegged down properly . The main advantage i like is the large undercover area and the ease and speed which i can erect it on my own . 2 people recommended if its too windy .

I have wanted one of these for ages, at least I did until I saw one mounted on an 80 series the other day- it looked very silly (way too long & big for the car), shame as they appear to be a mighty effective bit of equipment! I've kept the $20 tarp off the back of the roof rack for now...

Hi

We have one on the Triton. Very easy to put up and take down, but like anything that's attached to the car, you need to pack it up if your staying somewhere and just want to go for a drive. Gives good coverage and it's great to have protection over the rear, providing shade for the fridge.

Depending on the height that it's mounted, there is a longer set of poles available instead of the standard height.

In really, really wet weather, the end seams/edge will pick up water as it seeps in to this if it pools. Had this happend to 3 vehicles at the same time.

We've got a side panel as well and this extends the coverage further, or can be pegged down to provide a wall. Excellent if you're using swags.

Michael
