    I’m currently waiting delivery for my Leer 100XR camper shell. Does anyone have any recommendations and/or experience with tents that attach to them? I’ll have to have my tailgate down since I have the 5 foot bed. All of my searches seem to bring me back the same result for the same tent (pic below). Anything helps. Thanks!

    Thanks for the reply! It’s great to hear from someone with first hand experience with the only one I can seem to find!

    How does it hold up in the wind and/or rain? Have you noticed any water leaks or the tent disconnecting due to wind?

    Yea I agree, it doesn’t rank very high for style points! I guess as long as it’s functional is what’s important.

    Looks decent but other than leaks I'm wondering if the truck sides will get scratches from wind moving the tent material causing just that...opinions from user would be interested.

    I concur, wind can raise havoc with the tie downs and rub on the paint surfaces.
