my tent has pockets too but i'm paranoid about crushing my glasses in the middle of the night so i like to have them up and out of the way

I also bought a big agnes gear loft on clearance that i'm hoping to modify to store my shoes in at night. i hope to be able to have it underneath the tent, out of the weather, so i don't have to bring my icky shoes inside. adding some longer straps should do the trick
this is the loft

I have a trash bag or a small box I set by the door. I sit with my feet outside the tent, take my shoes off, bang the dirt off, and then stuff them in the bag.

When I had the overhang I just tied the laces together and hung them off of it. I haven't had a real problem with getting the tent dirty other then having some dirt on my pants.

I usually wear crocs in camp - they're easy to get on/off and have almost no tread so not a lot sticks to them. but i still end up with some crud in my tent. i'm sure some of it is from the ladder too - whatever is stuck to the ladder when you close things up will eventually shake off into the open end of the tent as you travel.

I keep my shoes on something - a box, newspaper, etc - but i still have some dirt or pine needles in the tent. hanging them outside would be nice - that's what Jason does IIRC - but without the overhang I'd be afraid they'd be filled up with rainwater in the morning

That's the same basic idea I've got, just closer to the bottom of the tent

So I got a little bit of work done on the RTT today

Added these vacuum line covers to the bottom of the RTT mounting bolts


And one of them switched out and used eye bolts and a Bolt pad lock (keyed to the truck key). I had to rotate one of the eye bolts because the Bolt pad locks only come in 2" shackle lengths.


Added some protection to the RTT cover when the ladder is extended
before:


after:


another shot

Had mine for 6 months already destroyed a set of mounting rails, replaced.



Have some major damage where the ladder sits on the base and bad puncture the bottom otherside somehow Going to add a sheet of diamond plate to the bottom for protection.





I also have a OZ trail light

Before I get my hopes up on getting a RTT I want to make sure it's something I can use. I checked a few of the tent sites, and they state to check the mount / rack / trailer to determine how much weight it can hold. What about the extended area over the ladder? How is weight on that area supported? Could a large man like myself (280 lbs) cause the floor / extension to collapse?

If I go camping with two friends (about 800 lbs of people in the tent), going to be too much for anything but a custom rack? How would I go about rating racks to determine this capacity? I'm thinking something that uses the bedrails is not going to work, am I wrong?
