Roof Top Tent Comparison Document?

Would people be interested in helping compile a RTT comparison document? Searching here and other forums brings up a massive amount of info. Would be cool to somehow get it all in one place.

There's a roof top tent company in Bend OR. I've stopped by and looked at them, and the construction/quality was impressive. The company was called cascadia tents.

I've done a little bit of research on roof top tents, and if I were to buy one, I would get a CVT. The quality and features are hard to beat for the price, and they are supposed to have awesome customer service.

My one gripe of that hard shell pop up is you lose all of your rack unlike the fold out which only takes up 50% of its surface area during storage.

Tepui was at the expo also. The home office/showroom is here in Santa Cruz. Looked like nice quality stuff. Designed here and manufactured in China.

shrug......they are all so expensive.

When I asked Jayne (Lizzybus) at the expo what she would do differently after 2 years travel in a 110, she replied move off the roof and sleep inside. Mostly after waking up in the night and being eye to eye with an elephant, but also for security.

Doug and I both have ARB tents,, and I have the added "room". Personal opinion is it pretty hard to beat it. Customer service is great.
