    This is great news congratulations!!! Looking forward to hearing your review of it. Please let the owner know if he is driving back the I25 way through Santa Fe area I would love to meet up with him and check it out as a very interested potential customer. This one and Vagabond are at the two I'm deciding upon for my Tundra build. I'll PM my number incase he is interested. Have a fun weekend. Maybe you can put it to use Sat. night!

    @crolison Is it possible to mount an awning or do the latches get in the way?

    I have preliminary awning brackets made up, just need to get the time to install the awning and adjust the mounts. There is enough space to add an arb awning between the latch and the side door.

    The extruded aluminum attached the camper is the basis of the mounting system.

    @crolison Besides actual use, what are your initial impressions of the camper? Build quality, fit and finish? Did anything not meet your expectations? Where's the bottle opener?!

    Getting harder and harder to be patient for mine. My camper will be pretty much bare-bones (only adding clear windows and the solar roof port) so hopefully construction won't take as long.

    Fit and finish is pretty good, with timing of my delivery we had to do some stuff during the delivery and a couple of small things after the delivery. I am giving input into Jay on some small stuff he can change to make a better product. I am currently working on gas struts for the top, finishing up the awning mounts, and my mattress.

    Was going to add rear steps up to the roof, but unsure if i am going to (they would have been when where the bottle opener was).

    Finished up the prototype awning mounts. Going to redesign and have them cut out nicely for a final version
