Just wanted to do a small report on the new Autohome AirTop RTT. This new model is a cross between the Maggiolina (crank) model and the Columbus (gas strut) model. The new tent Is the Maggiolina with gas struts. Opening the tent took a mere 19 seconds! The new model also has a rear door. Other changes are firmer pillows and mattress, darker tent fabric - keeps tent dark for slerping in. Overhead storage mesh, oval front window instead of the traditional triangle shape. Since picking it up last weekend, I have already spent 3 nights in it. Will take it to Yellowstone tomorrow. This model is a winner- overall lenght is longer because there is no crank lift mechanisms at both ends of the tent. The new roofline also gives it an upgraded look- dont know if it hrlps with aerodynamics. Tomorrow it is me, Max my 5 year old and a couple -40 Western Mountaineering bags and my hundy against the cold Yellowstone winter... Hope to spot the Druid pack.
