Hard case roof tents
So... I know the roof tent bit was beaten with a stick ... but I wanted to get some input on anyone who has direct/indirect experience with the hard shell roof tents (magnolia ext... and impi).
Here is what I think... I have been debating this for a while for my 110.
Pros= hardshell has a hardshell... no bag thingy to worry about keeps out dirt
Stability... I don't know about wind... but it does not hang off the roof.
Surf boards/kayaks... you can put big things on top of them and still raise the shell (big + for some)
Cons= Takes up the rack space.... but I don't like having more weight up there anyway
Rattle... I have heard that they may not be up to days and days of washboard (any input??)
Space..... some that lift on both sides seem to lack head room.... but the ones like the Impi seem tall
Cost... they are generally more expensive then soft tents
So what do you guys think?
