    Anyone have experience with and know where someone can buy a non-name brand RTT in SoCal? I saw that someone sold a non-name brand RTT recently on IG. I reached out to him on where he got his but the only thing he remembers is that it was in San Dimas. He only paid $500 for it. Thanks in advanced.

    I've had my eye on the Ranger model which is categorized as a 3 person tent. I know they have a store in Santa Ana which is 10 minutes from my house. Around $1050 if I remember correctly.

    Do you have the annex? If so, how's the fitment with your bedrack not being a tall size?

    The sale was one day only. $730 is still a good deal. Should be tax free

    No annex it needs to be higher in order for it to not be too long. Basically on the roof or on a full height bed rack.

    Sometimes (Depending on the seller) you can ask for a "Sample". Its not going to be much cheaper but you can get around the volume issue. Typically orders of 1-2. The larger sellers will do dealers in smaller quantities.

    They give you a cash discount if you pick up in person. I got the Delta tent for 800 cash when at the time it was closer to 950 online.
