    Anyone happen to know the thread size for the threaded taps inside the GFC frame?

    I’m trying to get some stuff together to take out west with me when we go to take ownership of the camper in June. (Hopefully)
    We plan on taking a two week camping trip around the MT, WY, CO, UT area after we get the camper and before heading back home to Ohio with it.
    (Will post pics after trip) :)

    What are you guys using to mount a solar system to the top of the GFC? I dont want to have to purchase the cross bar rack mounts and the cross bars to fit it.. seems there should be a cheaper way.

    I think GFC said they will have low profile mounts specifically for solar panels. You could probably make something work with L brackets coming off the sides of the roof extrusion and bolting to the underside of the solar panels.

    Don't know for sure, but I'd assume those holes are tapped for 5/16-18 based on above.

    If you don't have a panel yet, I have to say I've been really happy with my 100W thin/flexible one. Stuck it directly to the roof with a bunch of 3M VHB. I've had it for 2 years now, seems to be holding up fine.

    They go down between the cab and bed then up to the 2nd battery under the hood.

    Any idea how hot the roof can get on a hot sunny day? I thought about getting the flexible solar panels, but my only concern would be heat transfer from the roof reducing the panel's efficiency. I don't have my gfc yet, so I don't know how much the white roof may or may not mitigate that.

    Ive never actually felt how hot it got, but the roof/ceiling is transparent, almost seems hollow. Ive never felt too much heat radiating off the roof.

    Had it on the top of my old aluminum camper shell previously which would get warm for sure and it worked great - don't think the GFC will be any worse. My power demands are only a small fridge and LED lighting though. Keeps my 90Ah battery pretty well topped off.

    Can anybody tell me if the add on side door option comes with a screen like the rear door, or is it just canvas?

    EDIT: SOLD!

    I currently have my deposit for sale if anyone is looking to get a little ahead.
    I purchased another earlier build deposit so before you put one in I have unit #489 available.
    Nothing too great but it’s better than last.
    As of today it will put you 13 spots ahead since they recently just broke 500 and are now on 502 on the leaderboard.
    PM me with any questions! Thanks!
