We bought this tent because my wife could not go camping with me because she has a divisibility that will not allow her to sleep on the ground. She can sleep in the back of the mini van and be very comfortable. The tent is really a nice size and fits our needs very well. It's easy to put up and take down. We have been camping every weekend sense the tent first arrives. Thanks for a quality product at a good price.

When I received the tent, I immediately set it up in the driveway to try it out and apply seem sealer. The tent performed perfectly and I was very pleased with the quality of materials used in it's construction. About 30 minutes after setup, we had a heavy rain and even though I had not had a chance to apply the seam sealer as recomended, to my surprise the tent was perfectly dry inside. After the fabric dry.

I love the 8400 tent. It's huge and very sturdy. It's 7.25 ft tall (which is awesome), so it can be a bit difficult to erect it alone. With two people, it take less than 15 minutes to get it up. After an epic rainstorm the other night, where trees nearby fell over, only one of the fiberglass poles splintered. That was the total damage the tent sustained. AutoAnything and Napier were fabulous about replacing the pole, under warranty. I also really like that it can attach or stand alone.

I bought this tent for my XTerra and it functions beautifully! Conducted a set/parts check in my yard prior to,my first camping trip to Ginnie Springs. Tent went up easily with one person - 100% success! Impressed the neighbors as well. Roomy, comfy, and sharp looking. I highly endorse this product.

Besides getting lots of curious campers asking us about our tent, our family of 5 loves the spaciousness. We use the optional porch as our "kitchen."

Recently got a '13 Taco double cab with 6' bed and mid-rise camper shell. Had rear glass remove and installed accordion boot for access to camper. With the Sportz tent attached it makes for an excellent set up for me. Air mattress in truck bed works great. Only tested tent so far for fit and now just waiting for warmer weather to put it to use.

I used the tent for the first time this past weekend and thought it was great!! My wife even enjoyed camping and I wasn't sure that was possible. I heard from reviews that people said that it was hard to set up, but me and my friend set it up for the first time in the dark and only took us 10 minutes, very simple. They even have a video that shows you how to set it up, I would advise watching it first if you are unsure. Others said that it wouldn’t fit back in the bag that it comes with, but again, I had no problem with it at all. The only cons were the tent pegs that came with it. They had no point at the end and bent every time you hammered them in. I went to REI and bought some titanium tent pegs and problem was solved. The tent is big and very roomy. I'm 6.5' and could walk around the tent with no problem. I have a 2004 Toyota 4Runner and the fit was perfect. Great tent, can’t wait to use it again!

Like it a lot.Easy to set up. Quality is good. Only have ONE concern. Why do I have to seal the seams? A pain. I kayak in northern NY & it rains a lot here.So I just bought the rain fly. Nice. We like it enough to buy another for our son, recently back from Iraq. Strongly recommend, (please seal the seams).

We have used our Napier SUV tent on two weekend trips and are really glad we bought it. The few moments that it takes to attach or detach the tent to our Honda Element are outweighed by the advantage of having access to our gear in the back of the vehicle from inside the tent. No more unzipping and zipping tent doors and opening and closing vehicle doors to get something that you need from the vehicle. The 10'X 10'size was perfect, as it is tall enough that we can stand up inside without hitting our heads on the lantern hanging from the gear loft. We sealed the seams before our first trip and have had no rain problems. We ordered the long rain fly for even more rain protection and actually use both the short one and the long one at the same time for two awnings. No hesitations on recommending this tent to SUV owners! Thanks!

We purchased the 84000 model for our Element and immediately put it up for a trial run. That took 45 minutes for the complete setup using the guide book, but it is pretty self explanatory and next time will be less then 15 minutes without the guide. It goes up pretty easily, even on a breezy day. It is large (almost seems to dwarf the Honda Element) and if there were strong winds that might present a problem. The 2 tent poles seem sturdy and the attachment to the car secure. The access to the car from the tent is great. The tent is HUGE and having the attached screened room will be nice for protecting us and equipment. It is large enough one could bring a smaller picnic table inside it. The floor seems durable so no footprint required for the tent. We will take the advice of others and put seam sealant on the seams. That appears to be a weak spot. There is only one size rain cover which seems small but hopefully adequate. We won't know that until it rains. Prior to this we used a carport which had rain issues along with various size tents, but this looks like a great blend.
