Anyone know this type of camper?

Interested to know more about the camper on the top of this D90 for sale in Boulder. First I have seen of this type. Would this work on a ST with some sort of rack system?

Looks like a maggiolina, "thread hijack" I'd love to hear reviews If anyone hear has one? I'm looking at the 4 family 4 person model for my 110.

Thanks! I would love to see this on a ST if anyone has a pic of it. I am guessing I am going to have to break down and get a rack on top.

Maggiolina - very comfortable and quick to set up and take down. Hard to fit to a soft top unless you have one of the racks that sit above the top. You can keep all of your bedding in the roof tent freeing up room inside the vehicle. Great choice for stealth camping where you pull off and find a spot to grab a quick nap. It takes about a minute to set up - about three minutes to collapse.

it looks really cool. How does it hold up in wind? Say 20mph?

The sides are very taught when the roof is extended so it doesn't flap (or leak) - much more stable than some of the other roof tents I've seen. It's less spacious feeling than a Howling Moon but much, much easier to put up or down.

Recently I had my Eezi Awn up with 40 Mph winds through out the night...well gusting to 40, sustained 20+ and it was all good. I was surprised how quiet it was inside, especially being elevated 5' off the ground on the trailer.

guys, talk to Brian (mybluett) with questions...pretty sure he deals these now, or will shortly.

Maggiolina's are awesome. i don't own one, but know several people who do. depending on your needs, they are a hell of a way to go.

they are raved about on expo, like Toyota's. And much the same, owners that like them don't understand why anybody else would have any other.

one nice accessory they have is the winter hood. But Expedition West went to the Canadian Arctic with Eezi-Awns and reported they worked great, so if you spend the money, you can't go wrong with most of the brands.
