    Yep I agree! I suspect the market segment here in the states is different than other places where RTT's are more common. Lots of kayaks/bikes/skis/etc around here and hard to take those on the roof...

    Thanks! For the tent I used a fabric called Weathermax 80. It is definitely thinner/less weight than the canvas used on the howling moon. So one main difference is you can get some light inside...

    Thanks!



    Yea I would have liked to make it somewhat more aerodynamic. pretty much ran out of time. I figure just by having only 2 feet instead of 4ft wide its twice as good as the old tent :D...

    So, overall fairly happy with the tent. A few thoughts:


    It was a ton of work to do, and came out overall pretty well.
    I'm not too happy with the pole system. I looked for a while to find...

    Sew up a cover for it. Attach cover with one side of welting and the rest of webbing and grommets. In retrospect the webbing grommets do not work well so will be going to some sort of zipper:

    Homebrew RTT Build Completed

    About a year back I purchased a howling moon 1.2 RTT. Good tent but really missed having a Cargo box on the roof. It was very useful for storing odd items like a shovel, chairs, fire pan, tarps,...

    I'd love a set of those in a 35". Like the lug spacing on the side which would be really nice for deeper and/or slushy snow. Don't think I can fit 38's though :)
