Today we'll be taking a look at the Rightline Gear SUV tent with rainfly part number Rl110906. With our rainfly on and everything tight and secured, our tent is ready to go and now we're going to show you some of the neat features of this Rightline Gear SUV tent. One of the great features of this SUV tent is that it connects directly to our SUV, minivan, or crossover to add more camping and sleeping space. There's also an included rainfly to help cut down on the heavy rain, dew, and condensation on those cool mornings. Specially treated fabric and sealed seams add more protection from different elements. Weatherguard water proofing helps guard against rain and snow.Thecloth of this tent is fire resistant to help guard against campfire sparks. It also has UV protection built right into it to help prevent from fading. The bathtub style floor on the main tent repels water at the tent base.
This SUV tent has lots of windows for light and ventilation. It also has large doors with storm covers and no-see-in mesh. This tent is very quick and easy to set up. The instructions are sewn right into the stuff sack, so they're always handy. The adjustable alligator clamping sleeve connects to the SUV.
The sleeve edge seals around the rear hatch and easily detaches for travel when we're ready to depart for the day. Another neat feature are the glow in the dark zipper pulls that can help you find your way out when it's dark. We also have two gear pockets for stashing our stuff. Another neat feature of this tent is the hook on the inside, right in the middle. This is great for hanging a light or lantern. With the SUV connected to the tent, this allows for easy access to the vehicle's power receptacles without having to leave our tent.
This tent fits SUVs, minivans, wagons, crossovers, and trucks with cabs. The dimensions of our tent room is 8ft long by 8ft wide and 6 3/4ft tall. It sleeps up to 4 adults and comes with a 1-year limited warranty. All right, we're going to go ahead and open it up and unfold it and take a look and see what we've got. This bag is really nice, it has the instructions right here on the inside, which is very convenient, making sure that we don't lose them or misplace them as you'll probably be reusing this tent over and over. Just undo the tie here, take that off of there and we'll just unroll our tent.
Right here we have our rainfly trap. This bag right here contains our metal poles along with our fiberglass poles. In here we have our connectors. We'll just unroll our tent. This right here, the gray bungee cord and stuff, this is going to be the side that's going to connect to our vehicle. We'll need to flip our tent around to accommodate the way that we have our vehicle situatedat our campsite. Before we situate our tent, we want to check our surrounding area just to make sure that there's no sharp edges, sticks, or rocks that are going to protrude through our tent or do some damage. Look like it's going to be good, so we're at a good location. We'll go ahead and turn our tent around. All right, with our tent situated, the next thing we're going to do is we're going to go ahead and start putting together some of our poles and get it ran through the correct locations and the mounting points on our tent. We're going to open up these bags that we're included in the tent and just see where our products are located and what we're dealing with. That way when we're ready to set up, we kind of have an idea of where everything already is. In here it looks like we have some of our tie downs, our stakes, and the straps that we may use to mount it and secure it to our vehicle. Here in this bag, we have our fiberglass poles and we have our steel poles. We should also have our junctions in here. There they are right there. Two junctions that we're going to use at the awnings on our tent and then everything else is included and we've got all we need, so we're going to go ahead and start putting together our steel poles. The steel poles have the rubber band around it; they look like a lot of steel poles, but it's just going to be one long one that connects together. It's got the springs in there that pull them together. You can see right there, so as you unfold they're going to snap in place. This is going to lay like this on our tent. We'll go ahead and add our junctions here. It's got the snap system there, which is a really nice feature to have. Then while we're down on this side, we'll go ahead and connect our awning pole, which again is just a simple snap and lock system. Down here on this side we'll just repeat the same process that we did over on the other side. Take our junction, and we'll want to stick the two ends that have the two holes, they're going to be meant for our steel pole side. The other sides are going to be where our fiberglass polls run through. With our metal pole all put together, we can go ahead and put it into location. This gray piece here on this side is part of our awning, so we'll want to put the end of our metal pole into the awning sleeve there, and we'll do this for the other side as well. Now we can make our way over top of the tent. I'm going to remove my shoes here so I don't damage it, and we can put our clips on. We're going to take our fiberglass poles next and we're going to get them into the correct locations. One bundle is going to go for the opposite side, the other bundle is going to stay here with us on this side. Now we just need to connect them. Again, these have the strings in there. A little bit different from the steel poles. The steel poles have the springs, these have rope on the inside that allow them justto connect right there in place. You're going to have two sections here, one for each end. We'll run this end here through our mesh lining. Run it all the way throughand connect it to our junction there. Then along here, we can take these straps and just snap them on. Here on the other side, we'll repeat the same process. Take our pole, run it through the mesh lining, and we'll fit it into the other side of our junction. With this pole connected, you can see that we have something in all four spouts of our junction so that's nice to know so we don't have to worry about connecting anything else on this side. Then we can just go ahead and snap our clips into position. Snap the rest of them when we make the dome and get our tent up. Here on this side of the tent, we'll just go ahead and repeat the same process. Here's where we need to bend the fiberglass poles to fit in.On the corner here there's going to be a pin that's going to stick up and go into the bottom of our pole. You may want to remove the clips just to keep away from any tension that may build up. That way we're sure that our pole is providing tension in the right areas and thenwe're not straining it to break or anything like that. Want to get that pin right in the base there; it will hold it up while we secure the other side as well. Here on the other side, we'll take our pole. Make sure that everything is still connected right. Again, we can remove our straps for now just to make sure that our tension's notbuilding up. Want to locate the base pin, which is right here. Want tobring our other end, keeping an eye on everything, makingsure it's not snagging anywhere it doesn't need to. With our ultimate goal getting this in the base of our fiberglass poles right here. Once we have that set at the base, we're going to make our way around to our fiberglass poles and attach our clips in the right locations. Which, there's no markers on here to indicate the right locations. We're just wanting to make sure that it's securedand that we're having good pull, good resistance, so that our tent's not going to goanywhere. There we go. Now we'll go to the other side and repeat the same process. We'll go ahead and repeat that process on the other side of our SUV Rightline Gear tent. Now we're going to back our vehicle up, and we want to make sure that the rear bumper barely touches the tent. This is good to have a second set of eyes that can kind of tell you when you're there. We've got these two buckles right here in the center. You may be overwhelmed; there's a lot of buckles on this back end of our tent. What we did is we found the center seam right here and then we located the buckles of equal distance on either side. That way we know that these are the two center buckles that are going to go around our roof rack. Keep in mind that if you don't have a roof rack, there's extension straps that will help you run it all the way to your windshield wipers. For today we're going to be strapping it to our side rails of our vehicle. We'll want to take our buckles and take our upper sleeve, take it up over our rear hatch as much as we can here. Then we're going to take our buckles and fix it right there around our side rail. I'll come over to the passenger side and repeat that same process. Loosen our straps, or tighten if we need to. We just need a little bit more slack on this side. The next step that we need to do, is we need to adjust the baffle here on the inside top edge of our sleeve. It's just the flimsy part that goes around where our vehicle meets the tent. This is going to help keep bugs, wind, rain, all different types of material out of our vehicle. We're just trying to get the inside of it set a little bit as well as we can, and then we'll also go around the outside edge and adjust it as needed. One thing you want to make sure of, is that everything is sitting on this side of the bumper from your exhaust pipe. Our exhaust is right here, and we want to make sure that the exhaust has no access to the open part of the tent. Now we'll move up and buckle our liner. In the instructions, it says to buckle your lower sleeve. This part can be very confusing, because your lower sleeve can be here at the top. We'll go ahead and buckle it over our rear hatch door. When we open our rear hatch door, it's going to lift the sleeve and buckle up, securing these parts when we open our door. We'll also tighten the buckle as we open our hatch. We open the hatch to also gain access for these orange straps here. We also want to clear anything that may be in the way, which can include cargo liners. Onthis particular vehicle, we don't necessarily have easy attachment points for the orange straps. With the seats folded down though, we can use these brackets as well as the latch for the door. These black straps on the inside with the hooks will be run to the outside of the tent and hook into the wheel wells of the vehicle. We'll go ahead and do that now. Now we can go ahead and tighten them down. We'll take our last strap here underneath our tent, wrap it around our wheel well, and buckle it in here and tighten it down. We'll now move to the other side and repeat this process. Now I'll move around our tent and stake down our corners, making sure we pull our corners out to get rid of any slack. You can always tell where the anchor points are around the tent, thanks to the extra stitching, which is a real nice feature to have. Sometimes in the tall grass, you won't see the anchor and possibly step on it or forget to put an anchor in. Now we'll take a stake and one of our guidelines here, and loop them through the straps on our tent. With that done, we'll now just stake them into place and tie them off. Make sure to stake them at an angle. We'll repeat this process for our other guidelines, making sure not to forget the straps on our tent near the roof of the vehicle. Now we're going to show you how to attach the rainfly. If you're doing this by yourself, it's going to be easier to go ahead and make some attachment points. That way if you have a little bit of wind it's not going everywhere on you. In this case, the wind may help us a little bit. Here on the other side with it thrown over our tent, we'll go ahead and make another attachment. Now we're going to have to come around and redo these, butthis is just to help us somewhat get it in the right location for now. Here on this side, we'll take our straps and we'll bring them around our fiberglass poles. Just like that; there should be two on each side. Up here at the middle, bring our strap around the underside here at the center, secure it into position. Now we'll need to take our elastic strap underneath our buckle here and just find a way to secure it in place. Now we'll repeat the same process on this side of our tent. One of the first steps we need to do to be able to pull our vehicle away for the day or whatever, if we need to make a trip, is we need to go ahead and undo the straps around our wheel well. Up here at the top, we'll also disconnect it from our crossbar and siderails. One of the last steps in getting ready to leave is we need to make sure that the cargo straps on the inside of our vehicle are disconnected. Close the hatch here, and we're ready to go. With our vehicle detached, we can easily roll up this part of the tent that usually covered it or went over the top of the vehicle. There are attachment points at the top to secure it. That way we can fully seal it off and use it without our vehicle attached to the tent. With our vehicle detached and our tent all sealed up, that completes our review for the Rightline Gear SUV tent, part number RL110906.
