Hello this looks like an older thread but we purchased our Ursa Minor in 2018 and absolutely love it. Just stays on the Jeep no need to to take it off plus we keep our pillows and sleeping bags up there so it saves some room in the jeep. Great for camping in any weather since the hatches pass right down to the interior of the Jeep, easy to fire up the heat on a cold morning before coffee. I set it up to be able to operate inside the jeep when the weather is not cooperating, my drawers and my fridge can be accessed from the back or from the inside. Built a table as well so I can work on my computer or eat etc. Bigger investment but feel the value is definitely there.

We have been all over the place in the East and the West, most recently an 11 day trip from Colorado to Havasu Falls then back up through Moab, east to Ouray and back up to Golden. Only stayed in one hotel the whole trip (she was ready for a shower!) DSC07911.jpegIMG_3288.jpegIMG_3251.jpegIMG_3284.jpeg
