Same guys that built the little camper that I pull with my Tacoma are making this.


Signatour Campers. Nice guys to deal with and I'm happy with mine.

Here is our set up now, we downsized once the kids stopped coming with us. We can fit 2 bikes & 2 quads or 4 bikes, it is tow-able with a 1500 & has all the amenities we need.

Big time, our last set up was a 40' Alfa Toyhouse with an F-450 crew cab, so we had to get rid of a lot of stuff. This set up works great, my wife has the camper ready to go in 30 mins. No slides, just real simple & easy to maintain. If it was up to me I would ride to most places, but my wife doesn't enjoy riding over 200 miles a day. The difference is she loves to combine camping & riding so I'll take it, it is a good compromise.

RTT is scheduled for delivery tomorrow, had some roof brackets made up to mount the tent on trailer in background,



Painted them with a couple coats of Rustoleum,



They fit right in the aluminum channel, just have to set it in and drill the holes,

I wanted to mount some sort of leveling jacks to the back of the trailer so it didn't rock while on top of it, but I'm cheap and this gave me a idea,



Like I said, I'm cheap and made this out of scrap...



They seem to work, we'll see? I just put them on the ground and backed up 6" and it supported the trailer, than I would just put the front jack down and it should be fairly stable????

I assume your super cool rotary jacks are on the frame rails? Great idea- simple, no moving parts. Bravo!

Yes, there is a frame rail in the back. If your on a slope you just put the low side in first then back up a little and put in the high side and back up a little more. these are version 1.0 and of course will get chrome and diamond plate farkels after field testing

Great idea making some simple roller cam jacks! Looks like you have a nicely organized shop too, nice touch with the diamond plate covers.

It would also take up a lot less room in the trailer.

I have a 13' Boler that is a great little unit. It has the winter package so the walls are insulated and it has a propane furnace. It's nice and light and has all the comforts except a shitter.



I have also done the "tent in the back of a truck" thing with good success. I only use two of the poles so it conforms to the shape of the truck box instead of being an actual dome. Inflate an airbed inside and it is really comfortable.



Cheers.

I had a idea....
I wanted to try it.....
It didn't cost me anything$$$$$
There is no real steel at the back of the trailer to bolt to.....
I could weld something up but wanted to try my Flinstone jack idea...
I have not applied for a patent or mortgaged my house to begin production...

Roof Top Tent should be here today!!!!!! woooohoooo!
