    I won’t offer a USB charger for a number of reasons, Plus the vehicle it’s mounted to likely has the ability to charge USB accessories better anyways.

    Not sure what overhang your talking about, you’ll have to share a picture.

    Anyone can request whatever they want, its not limited to certain companies :thumbsup:

    Did you guys spray your tents with water like the other manufacturers recommend?

    We did not. I didn't catch that recommendation. What is the train of thought for doing that?

    Yes cab and shell prinsus. I have not been able to come up with a good solution thus far. Let me know if and when you do get around to it.

    Honestly my plan is just to get some wood, or maybe aluminum and have it cut about the exact same size as the prinsu cross bars. Then buy longer bolts for the tent brackets. I'll also buy a couple more brackets so that I can put some support towards the middle instead of just having 2 mounting points

    What was recommended on my old cvt when I bought it. It said there's a bunch of tiny holes made when sewing, and by spraying with water it causes the threads to swell and become more water tight.

    Many tents come with poly-cotton blended materials and the water will cause the cotton to change shape and shrink those holes as well as tighten up panels. I’d consider a nikwax and permethrin treatment to the outside as well.

    Interesting, I’ll be honest I’m not sure it’s recommended but it seems worth a try. I know it never hurts to use a seam sealer (paste kind) on key areas that are sewn

    I finally got around to opening the tent up today. First impressions are the following:
    1. Construction adhesive used is quite caustic at first blush...apparently that goes away sonce others haven’t mentioned it.

    2. Pretty tight quarters, but my wife and I like to snuggle.

    3. I can hardly wait to get it on the truck and get my 7 year old out in the wilderness to teach him some survival skills.

    4. So far, I LOVE this RTT!

    Yeah ours was quite stinky at first as well. I'm fairly sure they used a polyester resin on the fiberglass which is what we're smelling. We left ours open in the garage for a week and it's gotten better. Not smell free yet but better. Using it this weekend, I'm expecting in the open air we won't be able to smell it.

    The smell didn’t stop me from sleeping...

    Have a great weekend!

    I did notice there are more locking tie downs on the new tent notice there are 4 QD and 4 traditional buckle/backback style attachments. For Securing the tent closed.

    Hey guys, just an update that I finally finished up today and heading home, still have about 6hrs ahead of me but that’s nothing in comparison to how many hours were put in since ive left so I have that going for me. It was a pleasure meeting everyone that I did and the hospitality along the way.

    For those interested in the next buy I will update sometime after I get home and settled


    For now, Happy camping!

    Wahoo!!! 3.5 hours to go now!

    Thank YOU Chandler for kicking some major ass and your coordination and driving skills to pull this all together. You’ve done us all a tremendous favor and saved us LOTS of lettuce in the process.

    Since Chandler is driving and shouldn't be texting or typing, what mounting hardware have you all found (if any) for these babies?

    I didn’t find any w/the packaging so figure i’ve got to figure it out. So....what have you good peeps w/the Prinsu crossbars come up with?

    Thanks!
