The Napier Outdoors Family-Tents sportz SUV Tent is a great option because it requires zero modifications to your vehicle since it comes with a universal sleeve.
This tent also comes with a roomy amount of space and a peak height of 7 feet making it a great option for taller people or if you just want to be able to stand up.
It also comes with a nice awning to cover yourself up from the sun on a hot day, and can also be used for extra shelter from the rain.
Although this tent is a little bit hard to fit in most camp grounds because the tents screen extends on the drivers side. Also the rear hatch port has been reported to leak in some customer reviews while others say it has never leaked. I would be extra safe and waterproof it with some good water repellent.
|Universal sleeve||May require water repellent on hatch door|
|Additional awning and very spacious||Hard to fit inside campgrounds|
Which tent is better? Napier sportz SUV tents or the Kingcamp Melfi Plus SUV Tents? Both tent are very spacious, the Napier offers 135 square feet of floor space while the Kingcamp Melfi Plus offers a main 10×10 area that can fit multiple queen sized mattresses.
Now to get to the cons. Napiers Suv tents have issues with size, for example the Napier is a very big tent and it has problems fitting inside most campgrounds. Although the Kingcamp is a very heavy tent that is hard to pack and it takes up a lot of space as well. Also the Napier needs water repellent on it’s door whereas the Kingcamp doesn’t have any waterproofing issues.
Although the Napier has some benefits that the Kingcamp lacks such as a universal sleeve allowing you to fit your tents sleeve into most Suvs without worrying about the sleeve size. Also the center height has a 7 foot peak height making it great for tall people
The best Suv tent would be the Kingcamp because it has better rain protection that doesn’t require any water repellent, although the Napier is also a great tent if you don’t want to worry about the sleeve size.
