    Been working on a new project that's quite a bit bigger, literally, than knobs or phone mounts.

We'll be testing the production model in December with production commencing in February.

    • Complete camper assembly
    • Hinged aluminum side panels (open upwards)
    • Mattress cushions and covers.
    • truck-specific mounting kit.
    • Brake light and wiring harness
    • Shipping to lower 48 (preorders only, ends March 1st)
    Options not included in the base price:
    • Front and rear windows for aluminum sided models - $200/window.
    • Color-matched aluminum panels - Price TBD

    I take it, this is much more that a RTT and rack for that price?

    It's like having a hard shell RTT and a topper. But with a pass-through floor, and a combined weight of less than 200 lbs.

    Holy hell, this is excellent. If I was more certain of what the next year has in store for me you'd have my deposit right now.

    The build quality on these is going to be amazing. We teamed up with our neighbors, Aerocontinental. They make these big expedition vehicles:

    And my company makes nice machined stuff. Here's a closeup of one of the prototype hinges (the new design is more compact but still billet aluminum.) A lot of the parts on these campers will be machined. We're building it more like a race car than a camper :)

    I like the design- It bridges the gap between the expedition set up and the canopy + RTT. Cant wait to see the finished product. keep up the good work

    For those with prinsu cabracs, would this be compatible or would it interfere with the back of the cabrac?

    5000g is way too much for me, but I really like this concept!! Especially, if you could remove the tent and use the rack for every day stuff like lumber, ladders, etc..
