While in the middle of finishing up 002, I adapted some solar onto the top of the proto (001).
Side note - I'll grab a photo of a person in the tent as soon as I get 002 done and 001 mounted on the 4Runner. (Have a deadline to meet.)

Howdy folks. A quick update:

Finally found a seamstress with canvas experience. She is presently working on 002's fabric portion. Anxious to see how different it will be to my feeble attempt. Once I receive the fabric back from her, final assembly begins. All parts are in place and awaiting installation.

001 Mounting update: awaiting some parts to arrive. Should have the tent mounted up on the 4Runner very soon.

Stay tuned. More exciting stuff to come...

Another little tid bit... The main tent fabric I chose is unbelievable. It is Polyester marine canvas, very similar to Sunbrella. It is waterproof, breathable, abrasion resistant and did I mention... ridiculously durable.

Came here expecting to see build pictures! Little bummed that they are only on FB, don't have an account... The few pictures I see are awesome though! From an engineering perspective, the design is a lot more streamlined, even compared to some industry leading RTT's I've seen.
Keep on keeping on, and, mind uploading a few pics of your progress along the way?

Sure, I don't see why not. That fitment would be custom, but would work a-ok.

That's a piece of cake. As I have mentioned - these will be custom bespoke tents. I can easily build virtually any configuration.

As an industrial designer, there are times when the smallest details come out looking so ridiculously amazing. This be one of those moments. For some reason, this just looks really cool to me. 😁

I give you the RTTx's mounting plate.

Funny thing is - the last time I did that, somebody took the idea, made their own and now sell them. No bueno.

Can't feed my family that doing things that way. Lesson learned.
