Roof Top Tent - RTT - Autohome - Columbus

Post#1 » Sun Jul 02, 2017 7:47 am

Did this in 2003(?) right after we got the truck and just came across the pics. Might be helpful to some.
Rack was simple, homemade, and was designed to be as low to the roof as possible.

Nice looking rack. Any idea how much weight you can hold up there?
