The strut bars came from another company, but they painted them black to match the clamps.
Testing out the placement of the ladder.
Tepui Tent sells the slide ladder for 80$ but i picked up this werner attic ladder for around the same price. Originally came with 3 sliding sections to make a really tall ladder but i only needed the 2 sections which, when closed, it ends up being just under 4 feet which is the size of my RTT when closed.
Here it is attached to the roof top tent’s frame.
Can’t sleep on just plywood, right? This is a Tepui Tents mattress cover with 3 inches of foam. One luxury car camper coming right up.
Bought Tepui Tents mattress cover and 3 inch foam padding from joann’s to make a really comfortable mattress. The mattress has turned this project into a luxury car camper! The cover also has the loop side of velcro sewn in so i was able to stick the hook side on the wood base so the mattress stays in place when opening and closing the tent.
