Roof top tents

Just curious if anybody has experience and input on the roof top tents available (CVT,etc). I would love to get a pop-top but the cost and down-time is something I can't afford right now. I own a 2009 E350 RWB passenger van. I'm looking to purchase the CVT Mt. Rainier Standard Series w/ annex room roof top tent, I couldn't find any pictures or info about this set-up on our full size vans. Any info, pictures or suggestions would be appreciated if you or anyone you know has experience with these.

I have a 97 E350 with a Smittybilt roof tent. I haven't used the tent since we got it, but I had a EziAwn tent on my old jeep. I slept in some cold wet weather in it and had no problem. Even slept 3 adults. Here's a pic of the smittybilt mounted on the van. I need to get a ladder extension.

I have a couple friends who use CVT tents, and my brother has one on his JK. They've all been happy as far as I've heard.

I think that Rainer or Denali extended is a great choice if you're looking for something big. You might want to contact them to see what the max mounting height is for the annex.
