Anyone else thinking that somewhere in the middle of the night on the Rubithon that we're going to hear Romer scream: "DAMN...All my blood has pooled into my ass!"

All kidding aside Ken, that really looks likes it will fit the bill. For 1 or 2 people thats seems perfect .

Looks like a candidate for someone's signature to me.

So far all that Ken has said is right on. It is light and easy to maneuver by yourself.

Pros;

Light, less expensive, on/off the vehicle, smaller than usual rtt, comfy, easy set up, low cog, can be set up in middle of roof so it won't snagged on ?????

Negative;

Small, bar down the middle (no snuggling ;-) seems to me material is not as heavy duty as a standard RTT (more tent like)

I would love to have one for the Rubicon but I have one coming from Chad, in two weeks ya baby!!!. If I had extra money to blow I would get one of these for hardcore wheeling and a full size rtt for normal wheeling and camping.

I think Ken got a great deal and I told him if he does not want to keep it in the family I would take it of his hands in a minute.

This and the other one on Mud have been interesting threads. I did fine with the tent on Fins and Things, but there wasn't much there to worry about COG wise IMO.

RTTs weren't made for hard core wheeling. They're meant for overland setups. Between the pop-up and the Oasis I think Romer has all his bases covered as far as his needs go.
