Nice design and execution. I’m not a RTT person, and these are sweet.
Well sir, I have no idea who you really are...so it's not really an "argument".JJ,
Don't mean to argue but I'm sure I can build the front and rear of the frame that will support more than enough to haul a canoe or most anything up to maybe 150 lbs. Roof of my cap will support 250 lbs on the Yakama tracks and spreading the load to the front of the cap and rear contour over the back window would increase that. I weigh 180 and have laid on top of the cap several times with no noticeable deflection.
I really like your idea of a one person RTT and I would just expand it to suit my perceived needs. Not trying to steal your plan and hope you are not offended.
I appreciate it. I know exactly what you speak of. There's a lot of cringe-worthy stuff out there.I'll be honest I read the title and thought "oh this should be interesting", fully expecting some half baked mashup of plywood and a ground tent. All I can say is wow these look incredible the attention to detail is amazing. It appears that both form and function have been maximized, I tip my hat to you. Will be following this for sure.
Chad's really really tall and likely doesn't need a ladder. Just hops in.How uh....how do you get in it? I'm used to seeing these with ladder integrated or hard mounted to the rig.
Doors with hinge at bottom make for a better weather seal.Cool to follow on FB and see this happen.
Why make the side windows/doors hinge at the bottom and not the top?
Campteq clarification - Cutting of the roof is not required and only a few owners have cut their top.
Would be interested in how you went about sewing the tent, and depending on where your manufacturing these (shipping, T/E, warranty repairs, etc....), quantities, materials, schedule and target manufacturing costs we maybe able to help. All textiles are US and sewn here in Colorado. @adventuretoolcompanyCustom designed hinge. Sewed all 3 myself. On the hunt for a vendor to assist with the others.
Tucking material - no problems.
