Setting up the XTM Rooftop Tent

There is still some guesswork involved with how you mount your XTM rooftop tent. The good news is that it can be mounted on the flatbed or cross rails using a couple of tools and a friend in tow.

Next, get inside the tent to fold up the rods and struts that keep the canopy up. The pack-up process is pretty much the same, but you must be careful when folding up the canopy, or the zippers will snag on it.

Mounting can be tricky. Fortunately, you can do the installation and pack-up on your own.

Final Thoughts

This brand has survived the market even after the recall by maintaining its need to build quality tents and improve over time. Coupled with the fact that they have put their costs for the tent manageable and a healthy review record, it is a great addition to your 4 by 4.

This larger model isn’t as hands-free as their automatic XTM roof tent. But larger means that it is roomy and comfortable. Other than some minor problems that can be fixed over usage, this tent is commendable for any camper.
