It’s been a while

I know I have been pretty slack in keeping this blog up to date and I cannot promise that I will be much better from now on but at least I will give it a go.

Roof Top Tents (RTT) are often kept on top of vehicles and there is a good reason for doing this. These tents weight usually in access of 40 kg, and you don’t want to lift this on and off the car too often. Our RTT is a beauty, but she is heavy (61 kg) and there is no way we can lift this on top of the canopy of our ute, even if we wanted to.
