    How much were these new? Always thought someone else would start making these in the USA after campteq quit production. Maybe too small of a market.

    How many 80 owners WOULD actually plunk 5-7k on the table. I’m guessing to produce these for profit it would be in that range.

    I have no clue. I wonder how many are out there. Most cut the roof off so it would be hard for someone that has the roof cut would want to sell.

    @LandCruiserPhil could probably get you info. I bet most who have one would never part with it.

    If I did have the money to drop on one...I’d probably keep the roof intact and use it as a low profile RTT.

    I’ve never seen one in person but I’d like to see the inside floor of one.

    1 Prototype - Telluride
    2 1st production - Az (originally BC), Northern Ca
    4 2nd production - Mr CampTeq, Texas? (Originally Wa sold in 1/2 hr on MUD) , Tenn., LCP

    All have cut their roof but 1;)

    On the 2nd production very little interest received
    Featured at Overland Expo with a cut roof and non cut roof - no orders

    With STRONG interest production run may be available ~$6500 pick up in AZ.

    No need to cut your roof :D

    Hey @LandCruiserPhil - are you discussing with Maltec a box truck mod for your 80 series, similar to the last picture in your above post? That's something I might be interested in for my 80 series too.

    I like the Campteq idea a lot. It seems to make sense to eliminate all that unused space under and around the roof rack. Kind of shooting myself in the foot because I SELL roof racks, but it still makes sense for many. What would really be awesome is a RTT that flips out the side but is made to fit the 80 roof tight like a campteq with an integrated bit of roof rack in the front of it for gear. Upsides would be - Lower CG by a bit compared to a conventional set up, better looks, ability to remove the whole deal if you wanted, more storage space with the rack.

    Hmmm.......

    Your racks will always sell!! A good product will always sell. Not everyone wants an rtt tent. Your rack is amazingly built and the customer service is great.

    It should be easy enough to reproduce yourself if you're willing to work with fiberglass. I'm guessing someone could draw up a "kit" for all the parts that you'd make and assembly instructions if there was enough interest. Something like cad files for CNC router cutting all the panels and typical fiberglass/plywood building. I would think two or three weekends would be plenty to build the box. And maybe a day to sew the fabric part and install it if you had all the pre-cut fabric parts. My guess is that most 80 owners would probably be more willing to pay a few hundred dollars for plans/files and $1000 on materials than $5k+ for a complete kit when most 80's around here are selling for less than $5k.

    Just a thought from someone who's built a fiberglass kit boat. This looks really easy in comparison. And should be well within the skill level of most weekend warriors. The biggest issue for most people is that they don't know much about fiberglass work. It's pretty easy. Especially if you had a relatively simple project with tabbed pre-cut panels.

    I'm selling my Maggiolina Extreme over in the classifieds - not quite what you're describing, but it's a bargain and is in excellent condition. Getting up off the ground, and being able to setup/pack up in minutes has been a game changer for me For Sale - Maggiolina Extreme RTT w/Removable Winter Hood

    Edit: Those box trucks are hot as frig though.
