Great solution for storage

This is a great solution to not having to erect a tent for storage, and works as an extended living area when you camp in the truck bed. Setup gets easier each time you use it. The one criticism I have is apparently the two doors are not the same size and when we put it up the first time, and zipped the doors on they didn't match up - one was too big and one was too small. The directions do not indicate this, and the doors aren't marked. We used the black stretchy piece that goes around the outside of the rear of the truck, and it worked/fit fine for our small Frontier pickup, just have to be carefull raising the shell glass

Awesome tent, awesome service.

I went camping on Skaha Lake with my minimalist parents. The weather was crazy with wind gusting north and south all day and night. There were periods of intense sun and even rain. The Archaus shelter took it all like a champion, even earning rare equipment praise from my father. I used over sized steel spikes to secure the four corners to the ground thus I can't speak to the efficacy of the provided aluminum spikes. While setting it up, someone managed to position the tent not quite right and broke both plastic ends of a horizontal support pole. The tent is designed such that functionality would not be impaired, even if several more horizontal supports were missing. Regardless, I wanted it repaired, so I called support and Amanda let me know she would be shipping me a full set of redesigned clips free of charge. Awesome tent, awesome service. Definitely recommend.
