Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very solid tent, albeit not quite perfect Overall, a fantastic tent that truly transforms your camping experience. That being said, it's not perfect and there's some room for improvement. Positives: Very durable - The thicker material is great at keeping the tent both warmer and cooler than a thinner tent typically would. The wrapped internal bars are a nice feature, and the diamond plate base is plenty strong. I did decide to stake down the front half of the tent since it started lifting in very high winds to my surprise, but once I did that I have no doubt this tent will hold up great in future storms. Great internal size - For 1 or two people, this tent is perfect - it's roughly the same width of a queen mattress but a lot longer with enough room for gear at the end of your feet. I'm a tall guy and I fit very comfortably even with another person in it. I can easily sit up in the tent as well. Elevated camping - As an overlander camping in remote locations, being above the ground is great peace of mind. Not only does it keep you warmer, but you don't have to worry about any kind of animals. Also, you get some great views too. Negatives: Very large and heavy - My 4runner handles it better than anticipated, not a significant drop in mileage or power. It can create some road noise though depending on how it's mounted. The biggest downside is that it's a royal PIA to get it lifted and mounted - this thing is about 180 lbs and huge. I've made the decision to just keep it on all season, I can't imagine this is something you'd want to remove often. I really wish they could somehow make this lighter while still keeping some of the core ruggedized features in place. Included mattress is hard - Dont get me wrong, it's great to have a built in foam mattress but it's a lot more firm than you'd expect. I ended up buying a 2" queen memory foam topper which significantly helps. While that can be stored in the tent when you pack it up, it definitely makes it a tighter fit. Tepui really needs to upgrade the mattress here. In summary, this is a great tent and I really love it. For my needs overlanding, it's both practical and luxurious. I find myself camping more often because I sleep so well in this tent. As long as you're ok with the size and weight, this tent will serve you well. I decided to bite the bullet and get the ruggedized version because I anticipate this being an often and long used tent, and I'm glad I did. I plan to camp into the early winter with this out in Colorado since it's warmer than a standard tent. If you can stomach the investment, you'll love your roof top tent. It truly transforms the camping experience and I have no doubt this will last some time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tepui Ruggedized Sky tent Worth every penny. We love it. Sets up and breaks down in a matter of minutes. We also purchased the awning which is a must add on. We can not wait for spring to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from comfy and easy to set up We have wanted a roof top tent for a long time. This one is great. we plan to use on a small tear drop trailer but currently on top of our Subaru Outback. Love all the features of the ventilation flaps, able to see the sky, one person can set up in 10 minutes. Mattress upgrade might be a good idea if you are "older" like me Cant wait to do a long road trip. We might not come home!

1. Where is this product manufactured? 2. Is information available online regarding the support rack needed to erect this product above the bed of a pickup truck as shown in the photograph above?

Asked by: Tinman
Thanks for the question! The Ruggedized Kukenam 3 is manufactured in China and will require a rack system that has a dynamic weight of over 180 pounds. Tepui suggests getting into contact with a local rack installer. Unfortunately, we do not carry any brands that offer a rack sturdy enough for this Tent. I hope this information helps a little!

Will this fit a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee? Also is it waterproof or water resistant?

Asked by: Roger Ramjet
Hiya Roger, thanks for your question! Tepui Tents are designed to fit on most vehicles with roof racks. It depends on what tent you are buying and how much weight your roof rack can carry. Most conventional roof racks will support the tent if installed properly, however, you should check your manufacturer’s roof rack system to ensure it will support the weight of the tent. If you do not have a factory installed roof rack, the manufacturer recommends after market crossbars (such as Yakima or Thule). The tent is treated with a waterproof finish but that will break down after cleaning or general use. After washing, you can apply a silicone based water repellent such as 303 Fabric Guard or Atsko Silicone Water-Guard work great. Hope this helps!

Weight limits....will this fit on a Chrysler Town & County?

Asked by: Michael
Thanks for the question! Tepui Tents are designed to fit on most vehicles with roof racks. The general rule of thumb is to make sure that your rack has a Dynamic Weight Capacity of at least the weight of the tent. This is the weight that the rack can physically carry while the vehicle is in motion. With that being said, the Kukenam Ruggedized SKY Tent has a weight of 180 lbs (without the annex). As long as your roof rack can carry that weight, it will fit. Also, the stock mounting hardware will fit rack bars with a cross-section of 3.25" width x 2" height. Be sure to mount your racks 32"-48" apart on your vehicle. The occupant weight capacity is 600 lbs. Hope this helps!

Can this tent withstand highway speeds?  My last rooftop flew off when I got up to 30mph!  I guess it wasn't strong enough without the stakes.

Asked by: Stuntbutt
HIya Stuntbutt, thanks for your question! As long as it is properly mounted, this tent should withstand highway speeds. Check out this video: https://tepuitents.com/pages/adventures for a demonstration of the tent in action. Hope this helps!

How do you call the suspension to mount the tent platformon located in the truck bed? Our truck unfortunately doesnt have a roof rack. And how heavy is the tent? Thanks

Asked by: Misha
Hey there Misha, I'm back with some answers for you! So unfortunately; the racks to use this tent above the bed of a truck is not sold by Tepui, but can be installed at any rack installer in your area! As fort the weight, the tent is 180 pounds. Hope this helps!

Hiya Cory, thanks for your question! Tepui Tents are designed to fit on most vehicles with roof racks. It depends on how much weight your roof rack can carry. This is a heavy duty version, ideal for a 4 x 4, which weighs 180 pounds on its own. Most conventional roof racks will support the tent if installed properly, however, you should check your manufacturer’s roof rack system to ensure it will support the weight of the tent. If you do not have a factory installed roof rack, the manufacturer recommends after market crossbars (such as Yakima or Thule). Hope this helps!

Can you tell me the max weight capacity of your tents with people in it? For example will the tent and mounts on the pickup truck hold 4 people with a total weight when sleeping of 1000 pounds?

Asked by: Jeremy
Hey there, Jeremy! Excellent questions about this tent. Our friends at Tepui said that the dynamic weight of this tent is 220 lbs, so you should be sure that your vehicle has a weight capacity that exceeds this amount, in order to hold the tent with stability. And, for this particular 4-person tent, they calculate the weight capacity at 200 lbs per person, although they note that the ladder has a 600-lb. weight capacity. I hope this helps!
