I am very tempted by this...
Is anybody in to roof top tenting? I'm thinking about it for my Caravelle as a substitute for an awning. If I bought an awning I'd be spending a bit less but the quality of roof top tents seems to be far better than an awning, plus it frees up interior space when travelling.
We bought our T6 LWB Highline back in December (Starlight Blue) with nothing done to it. We’re now, having spent the last 3 months discussing what layout/needs we want from the van, have decided that a roof tent is the way to go for us. We spent a couple of weeks last summer trialling...
