Thanks! Your rig is ridiculous btw.

Another main goal of mine is to be as incognito as possible. Trucks with boards stacked on the roof, rooftop tents, recovery gear bolted to roof racks, and trailers full of fun gear are all targets that would make me nervous leaving my truck parked on the beach for hours on end. A dusty, stock-looking truck flies under the radar, especially through nasty military checkpoints!

Speaking of camp kitchens - I have (and love) the Camp Chef camp kitchen - the front unzips to expose four pouches, one that can be used to store cold things in ice, and the legs extend. I looked at several and settled on this one. I got it at Cabela's and it has worked well!! And also LOVE the ARB awning -- just got it out of the shop and can't wait to get back out -- next three weekends will be out...

Haha yeah usually I only go places where I take my truck on trails so I don't leave it behind, and everything has to come with. I was worried my first time going through an on base checkpoint, but I got my truck reg'd and I usually don't get much drama about it. ( I get asked more questions about my gear & where I go than anything lol )

Thanks! That trailer setup is nice! A buddy of mine brought his up, although it was much more simple, had a RTT mounted on top and used the middle for storage. Was nice not to have to carry everything on the truck itself.

I have the REI xl table.

Packed: 55x7 bag
Unfold: 55x32
Weight: 15 pounds

It holds a good size stove and has plenty of room on the side for prepping/serving.

Probably wondering about the weight on snow on top. Which I'm actually curious about, while we're talking about it. I don't have an interest in a RTT, but I'm curious none the less.

Just wondering if people liked using them in the cold or went with a different solution during the winter.

Speaking of RTT's I'm going to get some A-series rigid lights (since I'm a dealer now ) and put them on the center post of mine, still working out wiring and a switch but it should be pretty straight forward.

Ships from Hong Kong though so takes a while to get here. Sure you could find something similar elsewhere.

Almost grabbed these but i think the ones above are easier to attach. I used two super small zip ties and the double sided tape that came with them. Works awesome.

But how did you get the wiring through? Just drill a hole through the floor and use some kind of grommet?

The fold has an opening you can run wires through. There's a flap at the base of the center pole. Pretty straight forward. Set up a feeler thread for the lights guys, hop in there as lemme know what you'd like to see. I can get it all.
