My XJ adventures with the RTT

Figured I'd start a thread in this section since it'll probably stick around for a while for my infrequent updates

Just took delivery of my Cascadia RTT from Bobby at CVT. Very happy with the product so far. Instructions could use some work but figuring out the assembly is part of the fun

Re: My XJ adventures with the RTT

Prepare to get accosted by a lot of lookieloo's in every campground you go to. Everyone always wants to come and ask questions about it. I noticed this a lot more when my tent was on the jeep. Now that it's on a trailer people don't seem to notice as much.

Tough to find beaches to drive on in New England. I love the pictures.

No kidding. This is Duxbury beach (non-resident permit 295/yr). They just re-opened it thanks to everyone's favorite plover.
Some beaches down the cape (sandy neck) are cheaper but farther to get to...
I still haven't found a beach that allows both vehicles and tent camping. The ones that allow tent camping don't allow vehicles, and the ones that allow vehicles require self-contained units

Re: My XJ adventures with the RTT

I only know of the cape cod national seashore and block island during the summer. During the fall a few more open up like down on the RI shore and Plum Island. Haven't heard of one yet that allows tenting.

Re: My XJ adventures with the RTT

Building a 9 ft crane to pluck the tent from the roof... sucks I only have a 7 ft door Up to about about $500 so far including the harbor freight hoist, pair of ladders, and misc hardware + lumber... but when it's done it'll be sweeeeeeet lol. Majority of the "crane" parts are stuff I needed anyway that's multi-purpose... hoist, clamps, straps, etc

Re: My XJ adventures with the RTT

Just finished crane construction this weekend. Couple small details to iron out but the concept as a whole is operational

Had to ditch the strap idea and build a lifting frame out of 2x4s... the straps stretched too much and put stress on the tent when under load
With the 2x4 lifting frame and a little extra clearance, I now have plenty of space to get the jeep in and out

Amazing what a bit of back-to-black does

If I could afford 22K I'd probably have one...instead of wishing I did. LOL
