Note: the Docking Station tent can be connected to most SUVs CUVs and Minivans where the height from the roof to the ground is no more than 80 inches. For Internal combustion vehicles the engine MUST be turned off when the sleeve is connected to the car, and, exhaust pipes must be located outside the sleeve so toxic emissions do not enter the tent.
