So Happy

I had my first time out with my tent this past weekend and loved it. so ease to set up and to take down. Great for the beach..only one thing went wrong.. the ladder gave way with me. I had to fix on the fly. But with the great people at smitty we are working on getting a new ladde. I built a trailer for mine to set on and it works so well. what ever way you want to use it camping on the run or 3 or 4 knight stays in the same place. you will love this tent...

This is a solid tent

I finally got my tent last week here in Utah. The strike that delayed the shipping significantly, however that wasn't too much of an issue for me at the time. The local guys here did a great job keeping me up to date on the shipping and what was going on. So I set the tent up this weekend and I was a little worried from the previous post on here about "the seams showing light" and not enough quality checking, I did not find that to be my experience, the tent is well built and is pretty self-explanatory with the instructions. I set it up in my yard and so far I haven't taken it out yet so for my single yard use it appears this tent is going to be perfect for my family of 3's adventuring needs. My only slight issue would be that as I was moving it around and getting it spec'd for my off road trailer it is easily to scratch the base plate on either side, so I would suggest putting the rails on first thing before moving it around too much. The tents interior is solid the frame is great, the LED lighting is yet to be tested at night, the material and zippers all seem to be of a solid build, I did however get 4WP 3-year warrantee just to be safe, but it appears that for my needs I won't be having any foreseeable issues.

First impressions of Overlander

Took Smittybuilt out for shakedown run and found the following(1) top corners were its gusseted for support bars you can see daylight were its stitched-needs to be sealed.(2)small tear in ripstop were fabric was sewn in corner on seam, probably were moisture got in. needs to be patched and sealed.(3) none of the seams are taped so they all need to be weatherproofed .(4)Appears no quality control prior to leaving factory so lots of little finish items to square away. Nothing insurmountable but you get what you pay for. pluses its bigger than most entry tents,did pretty good in 20 mph wind. And if you are handy you can save about 400 bucs over similar sized quality Chinese tent .

What is the minimum height of the telescoping ladder? Can it adjust to varyin heights depending on my design? My intent is to mount this on an off road trailer rather than the roof of my XJ. Dave
