Thought this style looked a bit different. Might interest some of y'all.

it doesn't appear as large and heavy as some of the others but it is nice that you can still use the top rack.
It will be interesting how they price out.

Looks similar in style to RTTs like the maggiolina: http://www.autohomeus.com/rooftop/maggiolina.php

The big difference is that these may be less thick, but they need a footprint twice as big as a RTT like mine or Roadie's due to the way they fold.

I was thinking they looked a lot like autohome, and yeah you have 2x's the floor space to footprint in your's cause it folds over. Both good designs, except I wouldn't care for the rack ontop this RTT cause you have to completely unload to use tent.

I like it, in a camping situation you will most likely be unloading everything on your roof to disperse around your camp site anyways so I see no problem in having to unload to use it. It's nice and simple, I would buy one.

i'm confused on the add-ons. Where are they supposed to be packed up?
Off topic, but I Like their jeep bumpers. Different configs is pretty cool Idea.

I came across a similar product at the BC Sportsmens show today, made locally. It can be used on side by side ATVs, SUV rooftop racks, and pickup beds. I don't see a price on their website, though. www.tentcommander.com
