The Reason for Sale:
I am doing an expedition that have crossed the USA and now will continue through Central and South Americas, the tent was awesome during the northwest US, Canada and Alaska part of the trip but to Mexico, Central and South America we prefer to carry a smaller one since we plan to sleep mostly in hotels and bed & breakfast and a lighter vehicle will just do better in the high altitudes of the Andes. It has been used less then 15 times in a four months period.
1) The tent is actually installed in the Jeep, it is parked in the San Francisco area, at Putnam Chrysler Dodge Jeep Dealer in Burlingame, as a favor. You are welcome to see it if you are interested but please do not ask any question about it to the dealership personnel, they do not know any details.
This is a private sale and all questions and details must be solved directly with me through Ebay's "Ask a question" to seller link on the bottom of the page or PM me here.
2) I will not ship the tent, if you want to buy it you must arrange to pick it up at the dealership. It is not difficult to uninstal by you will need at least 3 (better 4) persons to take it off the roof rack. It is in perfect condition.
OBS: The expedition is on hold now as we will fly to Brazil for Christmas and New Year. We will resume the trip around Jan 15th 2012. If we have not sold the trailer until that date we might consider deliver it if you are on our path going south to San Diego.
3) Due to the ongoing expedition I am always in motion and would prefer the payment via PayPal, it is safer for both parties. Personal check may be an option but it would take over a week for me to have it deposit and cleared. I do not accept any kind of Credit Card.
4) If you are interested in the tent but do not live in the San Francisco area the expedition will be going south and we may deliver if you are on our route (or close to it).
Bellow you will find some pictures. There are much more on the EBay page.
There are two ways to place the tent on a Wrangler, the illustration above is with the Front Runer roof rack. The GOBI rack gives more room for extra stuff and does not attach directly to the roof.
It is very low profile for its size.
The big GOBI rack gives plenty of space for the generator and jerry cans.
The tent is big enough to fit a wall air conditioner.
And still have plenty of room to enter and inside (the pictured orange label is located in the center of the entrance).
