Question roof tents

Hi,
I'm going to buy a roof tent for my LR 90 and I wonder which one is good. There are a lot of different producer... Does anyone have any suggestions ? Please advise me as soon as possible.

roof tent research!

Hi Piotr

After much looking, thinking and ebay watching I've just ordered a MyWay 1.4 canvas roof tent. However, the choice is completely personal and dependent on where you're going and what you're driving......

What I did learn is that tents hold their value so well it was easier and cheaper to buy a new MyWay than to wait for the right Eezi Awn/Howling Moon on Ebay!

Good luck looking

Lucie

I've decided

Hi,
I've ordered Howling Moon Delux 1.4, it seems to be good enough for me. Regarding to travel plans I will use this tent in Libya (this November) and Moroco or Syria (April 2009). Probably in Europe too in coming months.
