    I don't know if anyone else has done this but one of the first things I did when I got my tent set up was buy some grip tape and put it on the ladder. I ordered this and cut it in half length wise and it fits the rungs on the ladder perfectly. If anyone else is interested here is what I got.

    Do you keep the foam in also? What foam have you been using on the top?

    I’ll preface this with I have yet to spend a night camping with the foam, it’s a new addition.

    This is what I have.

    Best Price Mattress 1.5 Inch... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07995K6RB?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share


    And the foam stays in the tent. It seems like the real space saver is ditching the stock mattress. The tent still folds up with ease even with the memory foam in there.

    Anyone ever toss their RTT on a Crosstrek before? Just curious to know what type of MPG those things get with one, now that we just ordered my wife one.

    My girlfriend has a Crosstrek and she put a square transit bag on the roof for a 900 mile trip. The bag was square and about the size of a standard RTT and she lost something ridiculous like 8-10 mpg! She usually sits around 28-30 hwy and told me that trip was slightly under 20 MPG.

    Maybe if you get something more streamlined like a GFC superlight it will have slightly better aerodynamics than a brick. :bananadead:

    I averaged 19 on our last trip with the RTT on the Tacoma with about 1500 miles of driving. I guess we won’t even both with the Crosstrek.

    Those cars are already underpowered. Throw a sail on the roof and they have to work even harder to get down the road :turtleride:

    What a weekend...

    20210529_100557.jpg

    The RTT was pretty stout in some high winds.

    Holy crap.. just checked the wind speeds. First night ... was intense indeed. No wonder it popped the spring rod out.

    And last night was pretty high as well.

    We were on Apple island and it went directly south of us. It rained a little on Sunday night into Monday morning.....sprinkling mainly, but overall the weekend was clear and sunny.

    Question for yall... I have the SB Gen1 XL tent, with Annex.

    The ladder. The extension, I don't know what you would call them, 'pop adjustment dial thingys'? That adjust the length and height...

    The first available holes to set the length are pretty far down the ladder, and in most of my experiences, make the ladder have to extend to the farthest point of the annex. Just makes it feel awkward getting in and out.

    Does anyone see an issue drilling adjustment holes higher up the ladder so that it doesn't have to extend that far?

    Nope, I did the same thing when I had that style ladder and my tent was lower. No cause for concern.

    are you talking about the 2nd of the two legs that slides down forming the whole ladder or are you talking about the extra add on ladder extension like this: https://www.amazon.com/Smittybilt-2785-Tent-Ladder-Extension/dp/B00KCFKQCA


    if its just the 2 pieces that make up the ladder I dont see why an extra set of holes would cause any issues especially higher up since the ladder has more to grab onto in the slides. This is always my gripe with the ladder on the tents. the lock in settings are always just too long or just too short for any place you camp.

    Agreed. It's either way out there, or swinging under the tent.
