    @Tacoma~Gal This is the only picture I have of it. I bought 4 caster wheels from harbor freight and covered the the top with some plywood. I’m going to put the tent in and ratchet strap it down. Might workout or may need some vertical support which could be easily added. It’s roughly 18x48”

    I've thought about this too. The tent is on Billie Bars so if I could rig up a system that just hoists the Billie bars (and tent) off my truck and stores them as well that'd make it super easy. Only downfall to that is the Billie bars cross bars add quite a bit of additional weight.

    The winch is rated to 2500 lbs and I used lags, carabiners and pulleys rated to 400 lbs each. I lift each corner so there a lot of safety factor

    I had planned on building a pulley/hoist system for mine, but ended up with one of these: https://www.harken.com/en/shop/garage-storage/. Found it on ebay for a decent price. It works great. Can have the tent off or on in less than 10 minutes with very little effort.

    My Freespirit Aspen Lite showed up last week. Just waiting on my bed rack to mount. Overall quality seems great. IMG_8601.jpg IMG_8603.jpg IMG_8604.jpg

    Do you use a ratchet strap or something to secure the tent or does it stay on there fairly well?

    :thumbsup: good to see you Aaron, you will love the tent. I slept great with the mat that was provided which is a surprise since most are poorly made. FSR did their homework here :thumbsup:

    Good to see you too. Was meaning to ask how the quality was sleep in it and how it held up with the cold nights

    Thanks. This is the first year of using a RTT and trying to adapt a good way to store the thing.

    Have to put it against the wall. A little wobbly.

    I slept great on both nights. The cold barely broke into the tent. I had my space heater nearby but didn't even need it on either nights. The testament to FSR quality they put into their tents :thumbsup: it was pitch black inside too :thumbsup:

    @AY_ARONTRD I forgot to mention the weight is only 110 lbs. As I was driving through the canyon roads, I didn't even feel it up top. Not bad considering my GFC Superlite is only 80 lbs, a additional 30 lbs didn't hinder the handling character of the 4runner :thumbsup:

    IMG_0912.jpg I hoist the tent still attached to the Billie bars to my garage ceiling with an eye hook.

    Compared to the tent I’m not worried about bar weight.

    This is exactly the set up I'm thinking of! Do you have more pics?

    And if you remember, what size tnuts did you purchase for the bars?

    Thanks!

    I think it was these.

    I'd probably do it different again, after adding the cost of all the pulleys, clamps, carabiners, cables, I could have bought something pre-built vs. my Rube Goldberg. Functions pretty well though. It's lopsided to the left on the bars since I put my bike on the tray attached on the right side.
