I toyed with this idea for me and the misses for My Pajero...

I went to a camping show and got to look inside one and decided I'd never ever get one of these.. I'm only 6'5 and about 140kgs and I don't think the Paj would take the weight of me on the roof, not to mention how much the car would move when I rolled over...

Not only that you can't just nick down to the shops once your set up for the night..

We ended up getting the Oztent RV4 with all the bits'n'bobs.. worth every penny..

Precisely why I put mine on a trailer.

I did the same to my roof top tent - mounted it on a trailer. This setup does have some advantages when crossing creeks.
