Does the Tailgater come with a fly or is it not required because it won’t leak
Jennifer - Singleton, NSW(2 weeks ago)
The Tailgater doesn't come with a fly as the tent material has a water-repellant PU coating over its entire surface and the main seams of your tent have been factory taped to help prevent leakage. The fabric used to make this tent has a massive 6000 mm hydrostatic head, so it is extremely unlikely that it would leak.
Dometic have stated that in conditions where rainfall is expected to exceed 30 mm in 24 hour period, there may be a potential for leakage to occur.
This Tent will also need to be weathered/seasoned before use. The weathering process tightens the fabric, and allows the cotton in the sewing thread to swell and fill the holes made by the sewing needle during the manufacturing process. By following this process before your initial use, will ensure that your tent weatherproofing will improve with subsequent soaking.
Any concerns that with a breeze the material can rub the tailgate affecting the paintwork/.
BC - Sydney, NSW(1 month ago)
Once this is attached to your vehicle securely you shouldn't get too much movement in the material, the material is a soft polyester and shouldn't be a concern for damage to your paintwork. There is a YouTube video by Dometic on How To Operate Your Tailgater AIR which shows some more info on set-up and how it attaches to your vehicle.

Tailgater AIR Inflatable SUV Tent by Dometic 1 answer
Is theTailgater AIR Inflatable SUV Tent by Dometic suitable for a Tesla y using the camping mode for heating and cooling temperature control? Are the seams sealed?
Kerry - Brendale Bc, QLD (2 months ago)
I'm not sure what you're talking about with the Tesla and camping mode sorry. This SUV tent will just fit over the back of your vehicle, and be attached with a range of tensionable straps. All the major seals are seam sealed, and Dometic have provided a 6000mm water head rating.
