Howling Moon Rooftent & Others
Am looking to buy a rooftent and came across Howling Moon? There is quite a bit of discussion on Eezi-Awn, Echo and Hannibal but I can't find anything on Howling Moon.
Good/Bad/In-different experiences? Are they a good and respected make in Southern Africa? Are they new or have they been on the market for sometime?
How do they compare with the competition in terms of durability, quality and ease of use? Value for money?
The Zip cover seems to be a pain but other than that they seem ok. The Eezi-Awn seems to have a better system (ratchet straps) but how easy is it in practise? Has anybody tried modifying the zip cover to straps on the Howling Moon?
I think a 1.4m wide tent (any make) is best for our needs (1.2m is rather a cosy fit), but this makes for a tight fit on a roof rack for a Landrover. How easy to get a cover on/off a rooftent on a roofrack with sides? Perhaps, better on a rack without sides? In which case, how strong is the cover against trees/bushes etc? How much protection would a rack with sides offer anyway?
All comments appreciated
