    That may be true but BJs are good in any weather condition

    Having come from the PNW, our CVT tent was all taped seams and we have camped in it in snow conditions, full nasty rain storms, etc etc. have never been anything but warm and dry. Was a great investment and beat all hell to air mattresses, ground tents, and mud. Having used ground tents for years I do not miss them in the slightest.

    Cool

    We just got done with a Jeep Jamboree and one of our Jeeps has this.
    The Tepui, my boss really likes it.
    Another in our group stayed in a hard shell. After a solid night of rain ( I was on ground in a tent I have had for 20+ years LOL) when we went to shut it, the water on top of the hard shell DRENCHED the owner. Just a heads up on that.
    But as others have said, the hard shell set up fast.

    Curious to see what you end up with, I need something since I cant stand the ground tent anymore. We have a cot with an air mattress on top but its so annoying to deal with.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
