When the shop that installed it called ARB they said they didnt have the parts in stock, but were going to call him back when they figured something out. They ended up tearing a shelf unit apart and overnighting the parts at no cost to anyone but themselves. Its stories like that that make me a pretty devoted customer to a brand like that.
I assume your talking to me? I have had great experiences with various brands over the years. I too agree ARB is a great company. BUT right now I cannot afford to pay for a product that is rebranded then marked up. Not right now that is. Ultimately, I would like to get ahold of a National LUNA to do some testing on a fridge that MSRP is $3k.

I am coppying both our posts to the LINK I posted above. Lets chat there in the Fridge BS thread.

Question for the RTT owners, im thinking about upgrading from my truck tent to a RTT, is the tent made from the same material as a regular tent or is it canvas? Do you get any moisture inside in colder weather?

Tent is just tent material I suppose..little thicker.

I get some condensation yes in the winter. A small pad under the mattress to circulate air is supposed to help. Hasn't tested that tho yet.

Either way. It's an amazing upgrade and ill never ground tent again. Well..unless back packing...but either way. Totally worth it. Love it.

How much to apply it? Are they getting in the area between the cab and the bed? Are you staying close to your original color or changing it drastically?

Stand the back hoops up, then go to the front and pull the front hoops up.........brace it all, then climb in and go to sleep!"

definitely a process, but if you have a need to fit a family above your truck, it's not bad

It comes with being..an engineer.
That and I hate redoing work. Takes me at least twice as long to do it flying by the seat of my pants than to just spend a couple hours drawing it out.

My dad designs all his ranch gates on those pads. Im trying to hook him up with a CAD program for his tablet for "on the go" quick designs.

i was referring to hand drawing vs CAD, but you're definitely wright about the rework. I draft up everything i build beforehand, but i find that i'm much more creative and come up with better designs when i hand draft the first version of the design as opposed to doing so on a computer.

Ahh...well that's cause I'm old....and like you, hand drawing just helps me think through the design better.
