Roam is so bad

This is only 2 stars instead of 1 because Overland Junction is amazing and managed to help me make the best of a terrible situation. I'm here to warn against Roam. They're awful. I don't know how they have such a great reputation in this space. They are ALWAYS out of stock. And it's not because their tents are so popular. Bigger brands aren't having these problems. But anyway, I hate to wait like 6 months for this thing. Overland junction gave me tons of alternatives, but I was stupidly stubborn on Roam. And then it arrived damaged! Roam shipped it to me directly to save time (Overland Junction was great about that). Not positive it was Roam's fault even still, might have been shipping company. But what was Roam's fault was that I reached out to them since they shipped it and I did't hear back for two weeks! While waiting, I emailed Overland Junction and they responded in a few hours. They acknowledged that Rome is notirously slow to respond to anyone, even them, and they helped me figure it out but it took so freaking long because Roam is awful. Stay away. There are so many better brands out there

Compact and Lightweight

My car doesn't have a high roof weight capacity. Hence most roof top tents doesn't work for me. However, As Vagabond Lite is pretty lightweight and compact, It works really well with my vehicle. I think its slightly expensive for a 2 person roof top tent but its worth the price.
