    Yeah, the internet makes it tough nowadays to determine BS from fact (and fanboys), but if you know about fabrication and manufacturing these things are pretty far up there in the detail/thoughtfulness department.

    Not that I know of such things, but I like to pretend I do...

    Um...
    While I wait for lineX things, I added an adjustable stop. Seems GFC designed the camper with this in mind...

    The large floor panel is LineXed. It’s much lighter than I would have guessed, and feels really solid. I can post pictures, but they’ll probably have to wait until Saturday or Sunday.

    I believe that’s the same piece, but mine’s black LineX. He said they just started doing it with this batch. It’s the large removable floor panel

    Man. By camper #200, will we even recognize these things? :confused:

    Maybe not. The line-ex panel sounds nice, I almost busted my ass jumping up on the panel when the cushion moved.

    Always a balance, right? Use an awesome product ASAP, or get a more finely tuned version down the road.
    I'm still stoked I got in on the preorder. The minor things I complain about are basically solely to give GFC a gentle nudge to tweak things to make their product better. I'm a little jealous of the whole startup thing...I'd love to do some new design/engineering for stuff that hasn't been done before. Anyone can keep the standard process going...innovation takes some guts and determination.

    Agreed. The only regret I have is that I haven’t been able to use mine as much as I wanted. There’s been a few tweaks since mine was built but they seem pretty minor and fairly easy to duplicate on my own.

    I believe they have launched a RTT a few weeks, possibly a month ago now, but it's in the 3K plus range. No real way to build that for $1500, that's what a "decent" fabric made in Asia tent costs, no way with the aluminum and powder coating they could do it for $1500. Really it's about half price from a full GFC (seems fair since you're getting about half the product).

    Am I missing something? Mine was in the same delivery (though built a month or so earlier) so it does NOT have a Line-X'ed panel. What is the perceived advantage of that? I wonder was there complaints beforehand? Mine seems very stout but I can't picture why it should be coated? of course having it done wouldn't be a big deal, I'm just curious why they made the switch?

    BTW I'm glad Graeme got down the East Coast to FL and is headed AWAY from Hurricane FLO. @Jestersrobe I saw your install (kinda) on IG. Looking good! How was Graeme's new Raptor????

    Graeme’s Raptor was looking pretty sweet. I love my Tacoma, but looking around in his Raptor did stir up some unexpected jealousy!

    Here’s a pic of the LineX panel:

    Can you link up one of those threads, please? I didn't know that folks were using tape.

    Thanks!

    Only thing I can think of is the non slip aspect, but I'd be concerned it would tear up the cushion covers after a while.
    Is the bottom linex as well, or just top @Jestersrobe ?

    Maybe line x is cheaper than powder coating the frame of the panel?

    Yeah, I was thinking of the foam tape provided with the cap. Nevermind...

    Hey GFC, on the homepage, below the contact me header, the IG logo goes to a different IG page... Not to GFC_USA
