    It does. And everyone who's tested it so far says it's as comfortable as the 3" one in the campers. It's a dual density laminate.

    With that being said, would GFC be willing to sell the 2" mattress for the topper GFC? For those who want more storage space, this could be a viable solution.

    Fabric Town is making up a 2" camper set for testing in Baja at the end of the year. Our plan is to eventually switch the campers to a 2" mattress if it tests well. I can't say at all when that switch would occur but if it does, then a 2" cushion set would be available as a retrofit.

    On a side note, I actually have one of those Enlightened Equipment Itasca down quilts on the way. It's the perfect size and will compress down as much as anything can. I'll report back once I've used it.

    Prinsu does a half rack that costs more than the full rack did last year. There’s a very similar design made by another guy on the forums for much cheaper that can also make a half length rack.

    @slowboater is this a personal delivery of the GFC? Or do they have quite a few rolling in? I sorta wish they did more of the day to day delivery stuff on IG. That was probably the most I've ever logged into the account to watch my GFC on its journey. I also like the (retweets?, idk it's called) that they do when someone with a GFC does some cool stuff.
    Also, what's @gmacmt been up to recently? Hasn't been on here much. Must be hanging out in the Raptor forums now.

    On a totally non-related GFC topic, this is pretty cheap right now ($68). Seems like people like them.

    I had a different brand that my neighbor borrowed and didn't wait the prescribed times before tries (I told him to wait between tries, but you know...). Got fried. He bought me a Noco to replace it. Build quality seems great, but haven't had to personally use it yet. Just saw it was cheaper than it normally is, and thought I'd pass it on in case someone was looking.

    Regardless of the brand, they seem like cheap insurance if you're out. I have my inReach on me, but a jumper would hopefully help you out of a bind so you don't have to call in any favors.

    Random question - Since there is the new dual delivery rack, will that mean that the cost of shipping of a camper will be cut down now as more can be delivered at one time?

    Intend on picking mine up but was curious

    White Glove Delivery pricing won't change. Our pricing model was based on being able to deliver between 6-8 campers in a run.

    I can't tell the mAh rating on that one. Using 13.2v in the conversion for 7kJ, I am coming up with 95,000mAh which doesn't seem right? The 1,000A jump start rating is pretty stellar though.

    I snagged this one early this year and have enjoyed using it:

    I had been looking for a year or so. The USB-C port kicked me over the edge. It boosted a stranded couple on the first outing. Thankfully, I've only had to use it for charging phones since.

    Just bought one, thanks for the tip.

    At that price, it's a great piece of insurance to just leave in the truck.

    I think he's either about to be, or is a brand new dad. Probably busy installing a Recaro child seat in the Raptor.

    Edit- I mean Brrraptor

    Here's a picture I found when I picked up the camper. For those who want to see black on gray.
