Default SUV and van tent - hooks onto the back of the vehicle

I have a tent that has never been used (was only out of the box once to make sure it fit my pathfinder). the thing works with SUV's and vans that have a back door that opens up (not ones that swing out to the side). it doesnt add any surface area to your vehicle. it just turns the back into a area that can be ventilated and still keep bugs out. the way it works is you open your back cargo area door. this thing attaches to that and then attaches down at your bumper, closing off the whole back side. its waterproof but has a zipper to allow you to open a "window" like any other tent to vent the area. this was 150 new. im selling for 75...still new... firm on price

Would it work with a Pick Up that has a topper?

this sounds a little different that what i was looking for, do you have a pic or a link to someone that sells it so i can see what it looks like. do you have the actual model name/number so i can look it up?

It looks like it could work on a pick up with a Topper...where are you located?

When the "tent" is unfolded and secured to the ground, is there an extra room created. I'll have to wait until the weather clears to get up that way...I'm not into fighting traffic. I'm in Centennial...do you get to any half way locations?

it doesnt secure to the ground, it secures to your bumper. and no unfortunately no extra room is created. it basically allows you sleep in the fresh air with the mesh netting instead of rolling your windows down, and not have to worry about bugs or rain

Thanks...I think I'll pass...I don't know if anyone makes what I want...the extra room would be important to me.
