    I ordered some new corner straps from them before thanksgiving. Got my order confirmation email but nothing since. Reached out two days ago, no reply. I’m hoping they are just busy, but kind of a disappointment so far.

    depends on the rack and tent?

    my tepui has mounting holes to add the rails in either direction. the bars on my rack and be moved left and right too. so i could mount them around the bars, or through them. just takes like 30 min to do either

    A buddy made the bars. The tent is a Smitty and only has them only in 1 direction and makes the tent ladder go in the same direction as my truck. Really didn't want to drill new holes but would be easier than having it re welded with another beam on each side.

    drilling holes in the floor of the tent would be cheaper and faster.

    or you get more bars and raise your tent a bit so you can rotate the tent

    That is my understanding. There are a few YouTube install videos floating around. As mentioned though by myself and at least one other member a few posts back, the company is non-responsive. I ordered before thanksgiving and still radio silent and no response to my emails. Proceed with caution

    Mine are screwed in and I’ve replaced the straps before, it was super easy. If you have rivets, then yeah they’d have to be drilled out and replaced with screws or new rivets.

    Damnit. I try to buy American and support small business as much as possible, but this kind of stuff…. At least Amazon can reliably get me my Chinese made garbage in 2 days

    Yep, I feel the same way. It’s really disappointing… I was hoping for a solidly made product that supports a small business, but I kind of need the product for that to happen :bananadead:

    Anyone have any tips on what you do to make your RTT more enjoyable for Winter camping? I currently have some flannel sheets and down blanket, which is good for a few nights in the Fall, but my wife and I were hoping to get out this Winter a bit too.

    The one who dies with the most stuff wins.
    Good sleeping bag. Heat water and put it in a Nalgene before bed and put into the bag down by your feet. People have been winter camping long before RTTs, and any of these heating contraptions, while innovative and cool, really verge more on the border of camper, than camping. I keep a roll of reflective material that looks like a sun shade for a windshield and put it under the mattress of my RTT to prevent some convective heat loss.
