Hello All,

(Video Below)
For those of you with a iKamper BDV Rooftop Tent and are thinking of buying the Annex system, I have a warning that may save you some cash. Since I own the Solo version of the BDV, I needed something for when my son comes along camping. Normally, we use a simple ground tent. The Annex looked appealing, but learned after the first night I waisted $800. Here's the issues:
  1. It's very expensive
  2. The directions are poor (no "how to" video from iKamper)
  3. Only mounts to one side of the tent
  4. It does not have a floor
It's not up to par for the cost and needs improvement. I did contact iKamper for a return. I was told by the representative that since it's now used, the return was not possible. Only option was to sell it on craigslist. Ugh

I do love iKamper products and own many of them, just this one item needs some improvement.

Hopefully this review will help someone save some cash.

That thing is absurd. Good video. I was looking at an Ikamper rooftop tent but this is enough to make me avoid all their products.

It's tough because the BDV tent is the best tent I've ever owned and the Trash Caddy (trasharoo) is awesome. This one product could use some improvement and their customer service. Hmm... I'm so confused!

Yeah I'm the type that if I get bad customer service I just move along and take my business elsewhere. Plus a bottomless tent is absolutely bonkers!

I can't imagine the mess you would have if it rained. Everything sitting in mud.😕

Wow that's crazy, thanks for sharing.

Hard to believe there are no usable instructions, no floor and the price of it is nuts all things considered. Massive bummer they would not let you return it as IMO, it's not really fit for purpose.

Guess I should have read the fine print before ordering it. All that aside, I was shocked when they told me I'm stuck with it. 😡
