The Chevy Vega Hatchback Hutch dealer folder said:
"Every Vega Hatchack becomes a Two-Sleeper! It's the Vega Hatchback Hutch. Travel all day and then instead of turning into some place to sleep, you can just turn your Vega into some place to sleep. The March '72 issue of Friends magazine (for Chevy owners) prompted hundreds of inquires."
Easy to install
"...The entire process takes 5 minutes from unwrapping to completion'"
Durable quality contruction
..."they're made of extra-strength square-weave canvas. 10.38 ounce army duck and died to a bright, vivid yellow. The material is water and mildew resistant and extra heavy brass zipper is strong and reliable."
Convenient to pack
"...It folds up and tucks away in a corner of the Vega storage area."
"The Hutch can have Vega prospects camping on your doorsteps. Just set it up outside and watch the crowds gather."

Wheels Afield-the complete camping magazine - February 1973 in "Economy Camping" said: "Hatchback Tent for Chevrolet Vega sleeps two or three, opens in seconds and snaps into place, is lightweight and water resistant, has zippered flaps and can be quickly dismantled, folded and stored inside your Vega. Makes overnight camping easy. Price: about $75. available through Chevrolet dealers everywhere."
