Missing the Sock to attach to the SUV, .... what is it for?

Hello:
Recently, over eBay I sold Napier SPORTS SUV tent(slightly used) and the buyer e-mailed me the missing-part which is ,'Sock to attach to the SUV.' I accepted it for 'full refund,' although it's a long-distance transaction. I did a big discount for it to sell and the buyer paid instantly. All parts are there, except one broken clip(for top) and one bent anchor clip.

The tent belongs to my deceased loved one, then I do not have a good knowledge as to 'tent,' the least to say, 'sock to attach to the SUV.'

Just wondering how important to the missing part, ... 'sock to attach to the SUV?'

Once got it back, I plan to sell over Craiglist. In the meantime, I look for 'sock for SUV.'

My question is:
How to find 'sock to attach to the SUV?' Is there any sport-shop carrying it?

Thanks for your help in advance.

Don't know anything about your tent but here is a page of different sites that tell you about it. 1/2 way down is a u tube that has a ad with contact info.

Thanks for the response.
I went two different 'camping part' over Internet. Both said that they never heard nor any idea for that, missing part, 'sock.'
The buyer says that the 'sock' is like a large pillow-case with one end is zipper and velco for other end. It appears to me that something like 'lock' to tent, ... but not sure.

Likely what is being referred to is the part that connects from the tent opening to the rear hatch opening of the vehicle. Also referred to as a sleeve I believe. Zipper on one end and velcro on the other makes sense. The zipper attaches to the tent (which never changes) and the velcro allows adjustment for different vehicle openings.

You would have to contact the manufacturer (if you can figure out who it is) to get the price of a replacement, if it's even available anymore. Many of these tents at a lower price point, are identical with just different colors or brand labels sewn on and different packaging. The part might cost as much as the selling point of the tent as it is now.

If it were me I'd sell it cheap "as is" with a note of missing or damaged items and the manufacturers contact info.

The tent is not new type. It appears to me the tent was purchased about 5 - 7 years ago with slightly used. I checked to see all parts and accessories which was inside the bag, then I suspect that 'sleeve' might be not included at that time(?). However, I see one of parts goes to tires of truck to secure the tent when I watched 'video' over the Internet, ... 'How to set-up SUV Tent.
