Overland Journal did a pretty thorough roof top tent comparison in their Spring 2007 issue. Here's the link to their site where you can get the back issue.

I enjoy the magazine very much, in addition to a lot of detailed gear reviews, the overland trip reports are very entertaining.

FWIW Mark Garrenton has one of these $700 camping lab RTT's and in the driving rain this weekend it stayed nice and dry. By all accounts it was quite comfortable. He also had the lower room and that was nice as well.
I think camping lab is the old Mombasa Roof top tent company.

Yep the camping lab is the old Mombasa, we used one for a while and it wasn't a bad tent but I wouldn't expect it to live year round on the top of the truck. We've got a Hannibal on the truck and an Eezi Awn on the trailer but they live for weekends any time of the year so they are always mounted and ready for a trip when there is a spare second.
The Mombasa had issues after 6 months living outside, mostly UV problems with the straps which failed pretty quickly, still it was quite comfortable and stayed dry in the rain.

My personal pick after having four is the Easi Awn, worth every dollar.
