A quick review of my new Simpson III RTT I tested this weekend.
My intial impressions are very good. The quality is very good all around. The seams are very nice, Mattress is firm and supportive, and everything functions as it should. I do like the weight of the tent and it has a very substantial feel to it. I had to adjust the height of the ladder for use with my offroad trailer. This was acoomplished by drilling two holes so the locking pins would set to a shorter height.
One shortfall is the cover zipper. I spoke with Buddy at ARB prior to my install of the tent and he reccomended spraying the zipper with a wax based lubricant. I did this prior to my trip this weekend and still managed to find a few choice words while working the zipper around the corners of the tent platform when closing it up. I am sure I have a couple misformed teeth on the zipper applied to the cover. I will work with it a little more and see if it gets better the next trip out. I will give ARB a call on Monday and see what they can do?
I am posting a few pictures of this weekend's trip so everyone can see the RTT mounted to my newly completed trailer.
To sum it up I love it! I am very happy with the tent and how it looks on my Rig.
