I'm 6'4" I like the big bulky RTTs. My problem is the number of trips to justify the purchase then the hassle of storage when not in use.

UPDATE: Covid-19 caused the supply chain to take a giant dump. Nearly all vendors and partners were shut down as they were marked as "non-essential". We were notified last week, by a number of them, they were opening back up for business. Many mentioned if they shipped their products during the shutdown, they would have been fined by their respective locations'.

So..where are we today? We have started the engines back up and are working to get the parts needed for a run of the first 50 units. We have to line up a facility (again)...and determine the best place to not only build these, but accept shipments and grow. Once we have a better idea on the timeline...I will post up another update.

Thanks all. We appreciate the enthusiasm and the increase in following over the course of the shutdown. The tent is coming.

Adventure Simple.

Check out @vilmontmarket on Instagram. Buy a tent there, and sell it once the Terrapod is ready.

The Terrapod guys are obviously doing their best to get this into production, so buy a temporary tent until then.

I love the enthusiasm! Thanks MAN!

Now reality. Not until 2 weeks ago were we able to even contact our suppliers. Some of which were just reopened as they were not labelled "essential."

We are finalizing all material orders this and next week. After that - we are 6-8 weeks out from fulfilling orders.

What to expect from this point forward:

1. We are targeting 50 units for the initial run.
2. They will be on a first come, first serve basis.
3. The turn time once all raw materials is relatively quick...however...we have no idea what to expect given what Covid has done. As a result we are estimating about a 6-8 week turn.
4. We will maintain open dialog with all orders.
5. We will start the ordering through Kickstarter to keep things organized and allow others to buy some swag to help us get things rolling.

Things I can say now for certain:

1. The final production design has been completed.
2. There are a couple minor details we are working through.
2. We have obtained a manufacturing location.
3. The website & kickstarter pages are currently being completed.
4. We should have a release date very soon.

That's all I can offer now. Getting everything lined up was heavily extended due to the Covid-19 BS. But I am hopeful we can get things back on track.

Thanks all.

Adventure Simple.

RTTx Tent Improvements:

As we head into production, each prototype lended itself to test different ideas and methods in which to create these tents. From the materials to even the mattress, we were careful to truly test out the components that truly worked best.

Here are some of the details and features that have proven to be the best and are slated for the final production version.*
(*Terrapod reserves the right to change the product. Prototypes shown.)

Updated rainfly hard mounts:



Uprated latches & billet aluminum spring rod mounts:



Interior all-weather corner supports:



Added weather protection & fabric reinforcements:



Improvements to overall construction:



Last but not least - we are still working with Expedョ to provide the optional & amazing DeepSleep mattress:




More to come very, very soon. Thank you for being a part of our journey. We're glad you're here.
