Here is a few more shots for eye candy. This is a pretty sweet "toy," long term plans are to set it up on an expedition style trailer, and explore our great state, and our neighbors to the west... Utah.

Here is a shot from my second floor window, and of the lock mentioned above. It is a cool little setup, all my neighbors are stoked by it...

One lesson learded a long time ago is to try all new gear... close to home and before you "NEED" them to work for sure, so for the first night out my side yard will work fine

Drew,

That looks awesome man! Doesn't look near as big on the 40 as I thought it would.

Thanks Jeff-

I thought the same thing, it looks a bit bigger from the side as it is nearly the entire length of the roof however, side to side it isn't that wide. I got the extra wide Yakima Bars (78" IIRC) so I can add a "space case" box for soft stuff, just in case the trailer takes longer than I want it to.

I have thought about how to mount it to a full cage, shouldn't be hard for summer exploration.

Thanks for the compliments!

Drew

Very cool. Thanks for posting pics.

Does the ladder act as a "leg" and support the weight of the portion that overhangs the side of the vehicle when it's folded out??

Yeah, it sure does... the ladder is sketchy! But once on a trailer there will be much less drama when I redesign it

Jim!

Your right man, as you know I am no skinny minny either, it is quite the climb to the top. I would like to add a couple of braces that triangulate to the center of the tent, that would allow me to angle the tent at a climbable angle.
