I got an email from REI for some deals and the Yakima Skyrise rooftop caught my eye. I know a rooftop tent isn't for everyone, but hopefully this helps for anyone that's in the market for one.

Sale is good through July 4th. Shipping is free with REI Store Pickup.

Original Price: $1499.00
Sale Price: $1048.99

Features:

- Tool-free vehicle mounts (no bolts required) means it's easy to put on and quick to take off

- 210-denier nylon tent body is light and breathable with mesh panels for ventilation and star gazing

- Windows and skylights are solid panels over mesh; unzip to improve ventilation and provide a view, close for privacy or weather protection

- Weather-shedding rainfly has a waterproof polyurethane coating; rainfly can be left off for a faster setup and a wide-open view

- Thick, 2.5 in. wall-to-wall foam mattress provides cushy comfort; removable mattress cover for easy cleaning

- Aluminum poles are light, strong and preset to make pitching a breeze

- Locks to roof rack with SKS Lock Cores (included) for added security

- Ladder and all hardware are included

I've been looking at those but they are just too small for the family. Perfect for 2 people.

I thought the same thing before I started clicking through some of the pictures. This is ideal for rough terrain or very wet. Too much for my cheap self but I can see uses for this.

There is no use for this. If you are car camping you have the ability to bring stuff that fixes rough or wet terrain. For a tenth the cost.

I actually can't think of a time car camping that this is preferable. If the terrain were that bad, you wouldn't be taking a vehicle anyway. Plus you have to park on semi flat surface for this tent. Would be easier to just drop a tent on the ground.

I think you're all missing the obvious scenario when this product makes perfect sense: the inevitable zombie apocalypse.nod

Think how soundly you could sleep with your car surrounded by zombies. What a dream come true.

Go look at the product page. Almost every review with a picture has a camping spot directly next to the vehicle. Only ones that don't are people that set this up in parking lots.

If you cant figure out a good use for it no one can!!!

Have you ever been in the mountains off roading in a Jeep? Have you ever been on a trail that took multiple days to complete? Have you ever set up camp and 11pm and waken up at sunrise to pack up and keep moving?

No.
No.
No.

Move along pal.

Good deal OP.

Canyonlands, two day hike in. Setup camp right next to a Jeep that drove in. Hard flat rock, tie downs of my tent attached to boulders.

Mt. Whitney, Longs Peak. All on pure rock.

And if you do any kind of real backpacking, you sure as hell setup camp in the dark. Hell a Jeep can cheat with headlights. Try doing it by headlamp or nothing.

Doing the John Muir trail on July 30 solo. Wanna join me. PAL.

Again, there is no reason for this.

Agreed. It's good at one thing: separating people with too much money from said money.

I can spend less than $1k on gear that will do everything this thing will do, and more.

No actual outdoor enthusiast has a use for this. Just folks with more money than sense. TD for being a stupid product made for stupid people.

$1,000 will get you a lightweight tent, lightweight sleeping bag, lightweight backpack, lightweight sleeping bag.

Won't quite get you into ultralight territory but close.

Clearly you've never heard of overlanding. Stop being so closed minded.
