    On mine, one side had some corrosion, not bad. One side had zero corrosion. I had to take mine out to replace broken hinges.

    They put up an update on their board for repair work.

    Troll here serving up unhelpful info....

    someone had reached out to me several weeks ago asking about fan installation and mentioned they will have GFC install it for them. I looked on the website and I don't see this yet as an option, but maybe it is once you get into the "in production" phase or something and that's why he made mention of it, I don't know.

    If they are in fact offering the install (and I am stating again that I do not know if they are or are not), I would recommend confirming how they are installing it. One was installed for me and it was GLUED on. I mentioned my concerns about it being glued and was told not to worry. They also SCREWED into the honey comb which i was initially told by them the same day that screwing into it was not a good idea. Of course there is nothing for the screw to grab to, so they started coming coming out. Well, the fan started separating from the camper of course because it was glued, and it rained on me while in the middle of nowhere on the Dempster and I would have to wait for dry weather to cake on caulk, and constantly reapply until I was in a big town. A friend helped me properly install it with bolts once near a Home Depot, and we resealed the thing. No issues since.

    This is actual helpful info from someone who owns a GFC. Sounds like we should be installing fans ourselves. Is there a particular fan that everyone is using? I live in WA where it doesn't get too hot so I'm not sure if it's worth it or not.

    go to the GFC mods, tips and tricks forum. a few guys a while back installed their own. i have a dometic. I think it is a bit loud (but i have nothing to compare it to) and it does not have a second latch. the one the guys on there installed does have a second latch. Lots of good info there for the fan and other mods.

    @rkam65 Please post this on the GFC forum. If you post it here it will serve the purpose of venting your frustration but won't generate any response from GFC.

    The fan will pull moist air out when it's cold and help deal with condensation

    And here I thought I was the only one disappointed enough to feel done. That's both comforting and a bummer.

    I'm glad I didn't go the fan route though.

    Really crossed my mind when I camped in sub-freezing, hit the tent side and it started snowing inside o_O lol

    If anyone is looking to sell their reservation, PM me. Ideally something in the 500-600s that has not yet had options set yet.

    TRUE! Lol

    I do remember thinking everytime I camped in warm weather, I can see why there where so many Baja photos and stuff... this really works well.

    And then thinking everytime the weather was cold, I don't think there where any pictures in the cold. Did they test this thing. Why is everything cold andwet? Lol.

    First time I experienced indoor rain was camping in the cold in this thing and kicking the roof panel while waking up :rofl:o_O:crapstorm:

    Good luck with that, color samples have shipped up to #719, very few unoptioned ones left in that range. Your best best is to cast a wide net, ask on the GFC forum and expedition portal to try to catch the non tacoma types that might be backing out.

    Yeah, you'd think being produced in Montana where it gets a bit chilly they would have done a bit of testing below 40. Both nights I spent were cold and I woke up to dewy walls.

    Good point.

    This was what was left after the fluffy bits snowed on me one cold morning at King of Hammers earlier this year.

    Never had this much in my Autohome Columbus roof tent.

    So now we reply ban and then completely ban people because we don't agree with their opinions?
