I just ordered one of these for our BL. They are shipping beginning of June so at this rate I should get tent and vehicle at the same time😂

Those look pretty great. I’m curious how it holds up in weather without a rain fly?

order now, get it 6 months later. Damn.

It’s basically a single wall tent so rain should be fine, just have to keep an eye on condensation.

Why did you order this? It's 90" long. That's way too big for the bronco sport.

If you move it up enough so that the antenna is not squished, it will be over hanging the windshield a good bit.

Not that I am worried about the antenna,
but I have seen 2 different antennas on the BS. A fin style and the stick style.
any thoughts on differences. ( if you zoom in this has a fin antenna)

It’s not necessary to avoid loading the roof above the antenna. It is designed with bendable material.

I’ve heard the fin style is the Canadian version. Not sure about that though. The stick style is a bendable stick... that is made to bend

How easy is it to swap the antenna for a fin? I assume if it comes as such in the Canadian model, then it should fit in place fairly seamlessly.

Of course you can load over it, but it will impact the performance of the antenna and associated equipment. As you can see in the picture, that tent folds up and stops blocking antenna when you are on the move. Roof rack in OP would provide no such relief while moving from A to B.
