To a Rooftop Tent in the Sky, hi, hi...
So I have a GoFast Campers Superlite RTT on-order, but they are delayed into 2022 and I wanted one for this season of offroad, overland, and camping. These things are like 80lbs and only 4-inches tall when closed!
I went for a SmittyBilt Overlander XL Gent 2 (75x120 when open! 147lbs) and mounted to Yagi yesterday... It has been in my garage for two months waiting on my to get around to dealing with it!
I decided to go with the clamshell design of the Superlite to make setup and breakdown easier than a ground tent... This fold-out RTT is not filling me with joy! First time setup and breakdown was a serious pain for me and my first instinct is to get the dang thing off my rig! But it was my first time dealing with it so I think I need to give it a few tries before I condemn it.
I think I will hold onto this Overlander tent after this season and mount it to a custom trailer. Having it lower to the ground will make setup and breakdown far easier to manage.
