Are you ready for Roof Top Tent season!

For those of you that brave the cold and snow in your roof top tents, you are all fabulous in my book 🙂 I prefer the winter camping in a tipi with a wood stove, we have yet to figure out a wood stove heating solution for roof top tents 🙂

Our new shipment is here do drop on by to see the new outpost and sandpiper.

Our outpost and Sandpiper models have a few changes, like fabulous sky lights, shoe pockets and more.

The Papillion and Hideout are new models based on the same size as the outpost and sandpiper. However the fabric on the tent is poly oxford and not poly cotton. Much lighter fabric.

The rain fly has a different shape as do the windows which can roll right back to allow more air flow into the tent. The annex rooms are different too as the have the ladder on the outside of the annex room as opposed to the Outpost and Sandpiper which have the extension and therefore the ladder inside the Annex room.

Project M101 has begun…

Well dust has started to fly and drill and sanders are working overtime…

Before photos..


This is how it arrived to us, a wooden lid and lots of work ahead of us, but so cool never the less!



  •   We removed the wooden lid and wooden compartments inside turned it over and started to strip off parts
  •   We then started sanding and stripping of flaky paint and rust, we were surprised at how little rust there was, the base had been undercoated so that was just dirty but rust free.

Still a lot more cleaning up to do of rust and old paint but i think this is going to look pretty spectacular when done… then we have another two, in the pot below, to do… 🙂 looks like we are suckers for punishment!


Today we did some painting of the parts below, we also painted the rims on the tires still have to post photos of those.
Tomorrow the fun job of undercoating begins 🙁

Today June 19 – we started to paint a first coat on the axle and the springs


Put the tires back on and have decided to do the undercoating once all the wiring is redone.

This is shaping up nicely and is super solid!



Undercoating is done and now it is off to get painted and re-wired!


Painted and re-wired looking absolutely awesome! Next step is to get the cover on and a roof top tent..
