Cool and convenient.
Camping on the coast of southern Mexico or the humid climes of the Everglades can leave you waking up in a pool of your own sweat when you're stuck in a normal tent. To combat this, Tepui developed the Baja Series of ultra-breathable and lightweight tents so you don't feel stifled when camping in warm, humid environments. The Tepui Baja Series Ayer Mesh 2-Person Tent keeps you comfy in hotter weather, and it's light enough to mount to your all-drive hatchback, so you don't need a dedicated off-road rig to enjoy its comfort and convenience.
The Baja Series Mesh version of the Ayer is mostly mesh for seriously breathable comfort in hot climates, without inviting in the many creepy crawlies that tend to come with warmer environments. Go with just the mostly mesh setup for the calmest weather, or throw on the rainfly when daily downpours or high winds are on the horizon. The A-frame design lets you sit up comfortably when you're waiting out daily afternoon storms, and the included mattress offers home-like comfort that beats a skinny inflatable pad any day.

- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Great RTT for smaller vehicles. The instructions might not have been as clear as I would have liked, but if you are going to be traveling and using this tent for its intended purpose your should have no problem putting it together. Although we haven't been put into a terrible rain storm, the rain fly looks like it provides tons of coverage, while still letting fresh air into the tent.
do you need crossbars on the vehicle?
You are not able to reorient the tracks on the base of this model when installing on your vehicle. This model requires you to mount the tent to 2 crossbars with a crossbar spread of 24"-32" apart and have it open off the side of your vehicle.
Can this be used without the fly? Do any other Tepui tents have a mesh ceiling and a full coverage fly? It looks like this fly won't help much if it is windy.
The Baja Ayer Mesh can be set up without the rain fly, but would lose a lot of its coverage. It is intended to be light and breathable for camping in warmer climates. There are many other Tepui tents that have a mesh ceiling and walls that you are able to cover with zippered paneling. I will reach out to you to talk about other options!
