    Hey guys i have been talking with a guy who is a rep for car-top-tents and they are selling their current tents at $325 plus shipping. They normally run close to $900 but they are coming out with a new tent and need to sell their current ones. He's got about 28 tents left at this price. You can go to www.car-top-tent.com and check it out. His name is Mel Flores and his email is mel@mombasausa.net. Give him a shout.

    Jason-

    Are you talking to this guy in person? Also do you know what model and accessories are included in the price. It sounds to good to be true. I'm skeptical, but interested to see what happens.

    I have one of the tents in the website's pictures, see mine below.
    I paid $400 for it from a guy out of his garage. Still in box but he needed it out of his way.
    It has a lot of space in it, is well made and a very cool item. If you can get it for that price, I would jump on it but is sounds fishy to me.
    Just my $.02.

    Well, I'm very interested, just a little wary. How much for shipping to Colorado (81623)?

    I'm tempted but sounds too good to be true.

    I think I'll wait until letus reports back.

    I emailed him a few days ago, and he has not responded. I also searched his email address, and he seems to be located in Texas(same place as the original website).

    Anyways who thinks that the distributor may be missing a few tents? I would like to hear more from the guy who started this post.
