Have you seen the quality of them in person? I had a chance to, side by side with ARB and another CVT. The seems and stitching just concern me, but live in the North Wet, where that matters.I just ordered a smitty, did I just screw myself? Also know that I'm just using the Tent for weekend surf trips in socal so it rarely rains and the weather doesn't drop lower than 45during the winter. So for the price and conditions being used in will it be ok or should I just deny shipment?
You should be fine, but I wouldn't expect the lifespan to compare to more expensive ones. I do think they are all made in China, just on a different floor of the same factory, with the level of quality and materials dictated by the associated retail price.
