Yes. To ensure the best fit possible, we recommend our larger SUV Tents (82000, 84000, 13100, and 19100).
Yes. As long as the height from the ground to the highest point of the cap window/door does not exceed 80”, SUV Tents are compatible.
Our tents already have a water-resistant coating on them. However, the coating may wear down over time and you may want to spray a water repellent coating onto the exterior after a few years of use.

I’ve only used mine once (I have the small version) but it was fairly easy to put up (after a bit of fluffing around). Overall I’m glad that I have purchased it as it makes my Skoda Octavia wagon combi less of a coffin to sleep in. The roof in this car is low which makes me claustrophobic. When the Napier is attached the back part of the car is high enough for me to sit up which is a lot better.
The Sportz Cove was a bit expensive compared to other options (as it is from the US). There are other options that are made in China which are a lot cheaper but they dont look as well made and dont seem to fit as tightly, which would be irritating in windy conditions.
A limitation will be making sure that the back of the car is clean dust free before attaching the Napier Sportz Cove, so I will have to carry a brush at least and clean down the car before attaching the car tent. So far Im happy with it.

We love the additional space and the access to the back of the car. Great product. The directions for attaching around the tire were not exactly as described because it could not be accomplished as described. Nonetheless, we love this.September 13, 2023
I liked it but Second summer and a part of the pole broked.August 17, 2023
Excellent product. Easy to setup. Was in a major wind and rainstorm in Big Bend National Park and held up beautifully. 2021 4Runner. Love this product!August 2, 2023
Will this work with a jeep with a soft top? Ie something that does NOT have a hatch door? Or is the hatch necessary to maintain the structure?
ThanksJuly 30, 2023

Two years ownership and loving it! (Small size Sportzcove)
It’s been two years now and truly enjoy the features of this little hatch tent attachment. It fits and works great on my 2015 Audi Allroad (wagon). I’ve received many compliments and inquiries where to get them from my posts on my micro car camping adventures! Stylish I must say especially with the awning extended. Although after many use, I’ve experienced a mishap with the included awning pole (snapped and tore part of the section where the pole is inserted) gladly the warranty covered the damage and Napier was kind to send me a new set! I highly recommend this for solo car campers (small hatch, wagon or CUV). And yes, this also fits our 2018 Hyundai Tucson! IF there was anything I’d change with this product perhaps a better awning pole? (Although it can be replaced with a third party product I suppose). How about adding an extension awning that can offer more shade?
(Yes we also have the BackRoadz SUV tent but it’s a bit too big for my car ).
Thank You Napier!May 17, 2023
?? Question ??
I have a Honda HRV 2023
Do not have bars on top roof
Can I still use your Napier s/medium with cords attached somewhere else ?
Will it still be tight save ?
Hope so seams great for my road trip 2 months West USMarch 4, 2023
We purchased the Cove for our Pacifica. Tested it out on an island during a strong wind. Not only was it still easy to install, it held tight while other tents around us were blowing down. We didn’t use the awning pole that night, instead we bungeed the flaps so there was more support. But the next night we did use the awning and the wind picked up again. Everything was fine. We are fans of the Cove!September 9, 2022
