    Yessir! I’m hoping to do a sequel run over to those places again. Maybe, this year. Also, it’s fun to explore around the campsite on two wheels. More people should try it. :)

    I would definitely be interested in exploring that area both on two and 4 wheels the next time you head out there...

    I forgot to post an update. I'm not dead! Truck got the wife and I through Hot Springs, AR, Taladega, AL, Orlando, FL, New Orleans, LA, and back to TX. Weather was a bit iffy on the legs from Arkansas to Florida and from New Orleans back to TX, but otherwise it was smooth sailing. Usually kept the truck between 60 and 70 and it did alright. Drafting behind semis helped a ton for gas milage and maintaining speed.

    I gotta learn how to take good night photos. Nice photos. Did you try any light painting in Trona? Trona is a really cool spot to explore near SoCal.

    Took the trip out on its maiden 'campered' voyage this past week. A friend and I wanted to test it out, to see what it is like, even though it isn't complete at all.

    I have to say, after spending a lot of time and trips using an open bed with a more common rtt on a bed rack, this setup is worth every single penny. The enclosed nature of the bed is much, much nicer and more comfortable. The wedge tent is so convenient it's not even funny. The side access through the hatches is just awesome. The entire setup just feels way more natural to use in my opinion. I am excited to keep improving it and making it better.

    Oh, and the Shadow Awning is just insane. Massive coverage and is completely deployed in all of 22 seconds. Packing it back up takes just a hair over 60 seconds. The fully cantilevered design is just unmatched IMO. This thing takes making shade to a level I did not know existed!

    I like the way your bikes are mounted either side of the rear door to allow access. Have you had any issues with the bike tires contacting the ground? Something to be careful of for sure.

    I used a moto carrier this summer which had a jack mount that hung down about 6" below the receiver and was constantly getting smacked on rocks and driveway entrances and other grade changes. So much in fact it bent the metal arms holding the jack. I've gone back to a tray mounted Versahaul moto rack now that has its own rear facing receiver so I can plug my MTB rack into that.

    I have a superpacific. Worth every penny for sure, love having this style of camper. Lots of tradeoffs with any setup. I can't open the rear hatch or the tailgate without unloading the moto now, which is fine since I can get in the camper by climbing up on the top of the tailgate. My setup is constantly evolving. Don't try and get it "finished" before using it a lot, because it will never be finished : )

    Pic of the truck with previous setup. You can just make out the carrier arm sticking down below the bumper. I could lower the tailgate fully once I lowered the moto carrier. MTB lived inside.

    Black Hills, SD from mid October.
