    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!

    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!

    Used it on Mistubishi Outlander for a great trip around the Gaspe Peninsula in Québec.
    Easy to mount, resisted to severe windstorms from the gulf.
    I recommend the Sport Cove to everyone who wants to travel in his car, simple, abordable & fun.

    I bought this for a national park solo camping trip in lieu of a floor tent and i will never go back. I traveled across 6 states, only staying one night in each national park. Initially, i was anticipating being annoyed at taking this down and putting it back up every night and morning, but after the first night i was able to put the tent up in under a minute.

    HUGE TIP: dont remove the tent poles. unclip from each holder on the left and right sides, but leave it connected in the middle at the slip. I simply folded up the tent poles, but left it connected to the canopy itself and it saved SOOOO much time.

    Always wanted a hatch tent for my Honda Element but didn’t want to pay the dealer price. Finally found a great alternative through Napier Outdoors. Went down to see the people in St. Catharines and was able to test-fit one of their tents prior to purchase. Just love this tent. It is the Sportz Cove 61500 model and fits well on the Element; a little tight around the lower door but haven’t had any issues with the seams or zippers tearing. A much better price than Honda dealer. It makes a great difference getting that extra two feet of space in the back of the Element versus trying to sleep with the rear doors closed. Held up to a storm on the first occasion of use. Have loads of people stopping and asking about it.

    Bought the Napier Sportz Cove for a 2-week road trip through Colorado and New Mexico. This little tent was perfect! I own a 2010 Honda Crosstour & traveled alone with a dog. We enjoyed every bit of our trip! I was able to pull in to my campsites & set-up this little hatchback tent within minutes! It broke down with as much ease as it was to set-up! Thank you Napier!

    We have a RAV4 sport edition. Fits perfect! Set up is super easy 1 person can do it real quick. Good quality and great design! My wife, child and I fit in the RAV4 to sleep with the back lift gate being left open! Would highly recommend! Now we just need to find the perfect mattress!!
