    Shiftpod tent

    Perspective...$1,300 is a lot for a tent. For us, it was a value considering that better shelter/tent options were either towable or a more permanent truck mounted solution...which would not allow us as much freedom in choosing remote or 4x4 accessible campsites, or the ability to disconnect...

    Shiftpod tent

    Even though the thread title has the word "tent" in it...I wouldn't describe the Shiftpod as a "tent." It is definitely an outdoor "shelter." The price is justifiable when you consider how the Shiftpod provides a quickly deployed soft sided shelter from the elements...IMHO.

    Shiftpod tent

    Shiftpod tent

    Agreed. Especially where Dave Bennet compares it to his previous builds, and FWC, Flippac, etc. and prefers the ShiftPod to all of them. Serious testimony. I just got the tracking notice that we are scheduled for delivery tomorrow, so sunlight permitting there will definitely be a backyard...

    Custom RTT Mattress?

    Well...they measure just fine to fit in my RTT, and since they are an aftermarket upgrade, could qualify as "custom" IMHO. I suppose the mattress is in the eye of the beholder...good luck with your search.
