Now I think you are creating a cantilever over the rear cross bar. And the back portion of the tent is where you sit. I'd slide it back to the original position.So after some feedback from some experienced people with RTT's I was advised to move the tent rearward to negate any lift from wind on the front end of the RTT. So I slid it back 12" and bolted it back down. Still no word on wheels/tires. ugh
I have that tire carrier used it on my Land Cruiser and owned a Outback for 10yrs. I tried it on the Outback for kicks. Too heavy lost too much rear suspension height.Quick update:
Due to Corona Virus my kids had to move out of their dorm room so I acquired one of their mattress toppers for the RTT. I cut a queen sized topper off 6" from the side and the fit was great! I think it's definitely going to add to the level of comfort inside. Most campgrounds are still closed so I have yet to sleep in it. I also bought a telescoping ladder to use with it. The factory ladder was too bulky for me so I opted to get an inexpensive telescoping ladder off of amazon.
Also found out my job is in question due to the virus as well so I cancelled the tire carrier until we get back to normal. For now that's all of the mods I'm willing to do on the build until things stabilize.
