    That sucks. I'd bring up some kind of refund of sorts. Partial or something.
    No want for the hard shell Mt Hood style?

    Well I have a short bed tacoma and my rack is mid-height. So I'd either have to deal with an overhang or raise the tent. Additionally I'm not looking to put more money out in order to accommodate what I was looking for and I dont think they'll want to drop $1k off the price. It is what it is, I'm awaiting a call back this morning to discuss after all that went down on Saturday I don't have any shoe bags, original mounting hardware kit (they re-used my custom hardware and took the original hardware I had in a box of parts) and well I guess the pioneer doesn't come with an LED strip unlike the hybrid.

    Spoke with CVT and learned that indeed the shoe bags and led strip that were included in the hybrid are not standard with the pioneer. Even though the site doesn't list them as included I wasn't sure since the descriptions don't include all the details. CVT did say they would send the items out to me.

    We chatted about all that has gone on, where I am at with all of it and what my endgame is. I explained that I am not trying to get more that what is normally standard although also have to look at what I am missing.

    I still have to open the tent up and do a full inspection for any concerns. At the end of the day while I was still at "the car lot" on Saturday faced with all the issues and decisions I probably should have just cut my losses asked for a refund.

    Maybe a weird question, but has anyone ever used some sort of brace/support in the bed by the tailgate for their RTT? Without a cab-high bed rack I've got this overhang. It's probably fine but I'd like to put something there for peace of mind and longevity. Doubt I can put anything on the tailgate. I just can't get creative enough haha. Was thinking some kind of jack. Not really sure but there are surely several options that would work. I'm open to ideas! Thanks in advance!

    The only logical solution is to bring two of these underhoist stands camping and set them under the trailing edge of the tent when you park.

    The ladder acts as a support as well. As long as its positioned enough under the tent youd be fine. CVT explained that to me one day when i was at their shop.

    Yeah I think my only complaint about this tent is the ladder adds no support. The hooks grab from the top. I like the underjoist stand idea though

    I was being a smart ass but there is some validity to the idea, just maybe not as extreme. Something else like a cut-to-size 4x4 that you wedge between the tailgate and the bottom of the tent once parked could give some peace of mind.

    Last trip with the RTT on the camper shell. 3 off road trips is enough. Camper shell does not like the weight. Bed rack is on order.

    Is that the 5 foot ROAM awning? I've been going back and forth with the 5 foot or the 6.5.

    Yeah.
    I went with the 6.5 and I'm glad I did. I thought it might bug me with it sticking out over the windshield a little bit, but I can't even see it. Even at 6.5 it provides what I consider "just enough" cover, so I don't think I'd be happy with the 5 foot even though it probably looks cleaner.

    The one who dies with the most stuff wins.
    What did the shell not like? Are your seeing any cracks? I've wheeled mine pretty hard with the RTT up there for a few years and have not seen any adverse effects.

    what do you guys use for leveling the truck when camping? So far I've just been using a couple 4x4 blocks of wood to drive up on but they've started cracking.
