Why We Like the Thule X Tepui Ruggedized Kukenam 3

Pulling up to the campsite in the dark after a long drive leaves us groggy and uninspired to set up camp. With the Thule x Tepui Ruggedized Kukenam 3, we can ditch the grounded option and take to the rooftop. This tent is easy to set up and extremely comfortable with a high-density foam mattress that adds a homey feel. A telescoping ladder increases support and offers ease of entry, and an insulated fiberglass base reduces weight and increases warmth. Take car camping to new heights with the Thule x Tepui Ruggedized Kukenam 3.

Quality Construction - Takes Forever to Set up

The Good: - excellent insulation qualities (especially when the extra rain fly is on) - comfortable/quality design - plenty of windows/openings (fully functional bug netting) - space is good -- comfortable fit 2 people + gear or squeeze three adults - bedding is comfortable and the tent/floor is easy to clean out The Bad: - takes absolutely forever to set up (I've set up my tent maybe 15 times and have the set-up/take-down to ~20 minutes from start to finish) - difficult to set up the window awning unless you physically get out on the roof of the car (at least in my experience with the FJ roof) - pretty heavy/large RTT (roof top tent), even when packed up -- creates a significant amount of drag but no wind-whistle to my knowledge Closing thoughts: Overall this is a well-built RTT that I think is perfect for Spring-Fall camping. I've used it in the desert, alpine, forests, and beach -- have been comfortable through rain storms, light hail, and strong winds (30mph+). There are plenty of features that allow for the regulation of temperature (e.g. windows + awning zippers). If you want to be able to quickly arrive at campsite, set up your shelter and perhaps plan to leave in the morning -- this may not be the RTT for you... there are more mobile/simple setup options available. Other than that, no complaints.

Easy to Steal

Bought this product a month ago & was jacked off the back of my truck which is disappointing to say the least. It's surprising that Thule doesn't provide hardware and complete set-ups that are tamper proof and less likely to be stolen. Do not recommend if you do not have a secure storage area to keep the tent - but even then it could be stolen when you're out using it anyway.

Get The Ruggedized

I’ve had mine now for 7 years and love it! There are some fancier RTTs on the market but you can’t beat the reliability of a Tepui Ruggedized.

Decent but there are better options for price

Purchased a month ago. It is easy to install and Made with quality materials. Easy to setup and seems solid with good fitting cover. After using on a long trip, the mat is not comfortable at all. Very hard on the back and side. The tent does not do well in winds. It was a consistent 10 mph wind and it was terrible. I had a competitors tent that was much better and a lot more comfortable. If I could get my money back I would.

I like it a lot.

I’ve spent 10 nights in it so far and am pretty happy. Wind and rain aren’t much of a problem. It gets quicker every time I set it up - 8 minutes start to finish is the quickest so far. 12 minutes to pack it back up. I leave my bag and pillows in it which is nice. Downsides - the mattress is awful. I’m going to try a mattress topper for it because there isn’t much give to this thing. It’s rock hard. Maybe it will break in? Fingers crossed. The only other downside is waiting for it to dry. I’ve been closing it wet because in the woods where I camped there isn’t much sun. So I drove to the beach and popped it open to dry. Not a huge deal - everything gets wet where I camp in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula (along Lake Michigan). Oh, get a brush to get the sand off the ladder before you fold it up.
