Several installs have been done with no gasket. One that comes to mind has was done ~8 years ago and has been all over the world without issue.Our Campteq rests on a rubber gasket, so the aluminum is not in contact with any steel. No corrosion and no dust or water getting in. You'll probably have better luck with feedback on Campteq on the Mud forum.
Mine clamps directly to the rain gutters. Others have used an adhesive called Sikiflex. And yes, I think most Campteq owners cut their roofs and do integrated builds. Ours, uncut, has no inside access; access is via the rear door and hatch ladder.Yes - I have seen the Dirt Sunrise truck tour. Interesting - so the Campteq on yours is just glued to top on your vehicle - So no access from the inside. How much difference in functionality is your setup to a hard shell RTT?
For me, the main reason to get the Camptek is to have inside access and to be able to sit upright and stand up in it. I assume most pop-ups are installed with inside access - right.
More comfort and better off-road capability would be nice.
Truth be a Troopy is a landscaping truck everywhere else in the world but the USA. As for travel in no way does an 80 and Troopy compare in ride or comfort.C p w. All good points. Probably a big drawback with the Troopy is that you just can't easily buy them. I'm guessing parts for the 80s are easier to get as well, as there may have been more of them sold worldwide. Troopy's are also meant for more weight than I will ever expect to load in it when I make the rig trip ready. Good to know nonetheless.
