Tired of all the "same", big honking RTT's. So I made a new one. (3 Viewers)

Mount I drew up to get laser cut. These will interface the Terrapod load bars to bolt on top of my Eezi-Awn K9 rack for the time being. Had them made from 1/4" 6061 T6 Aluminum

I gave Chad a call yesterday afternoon and he mentioned that I was in the first batch.

He also asked if I got a small packet with some "swag" but at the time of the phone call I had not received anything. When I came home after work yesterday, it was sitting in my mail box. It was post marked 12/22/20 and arrived at my house on 1/6/21. Long time for a small packet to get delivered by USPS.

So glad you got it! Crazy it took that long!
I'll post an update this evening.

Howdy all...been a crazy few weeks. Glad to see everyone is finally getting our swag. How about a Happy New Year update?

As of today here's where we are:

- Terrapod was hit by a number of uncontrollable delays relating to Covid, the holidays, and the holiday shipping fiasco of 2020.
- 99.9% of all parts and materials are in place and ready to go for the First Edition units and production is well underway.
- Based on the present pace, the first 5 units will be ready for shipping in 2-3 weeks.
- We are waiting on one last component that we had to make a design change to - the nose panels. We wanted them even tougher.
- We have begun reaching out to the first 5 customers to make final order confirmations and to make sure we did not miss any added accessories or needs.
- Following notification, our COO will contact each customer to get our Rhino-Rack orders compiled and sent out.
- Lastly, we took over the space behind us and doubled our facility. This will allow us to ramp up that much faster.

In the meantime...

The units are looking incredible. The fit and finishes have been carefully tailored to be on point. And...they are just that. Here is a sampling of what is coming your way. (all photos are from the current batch being completed.

Thanks for the update Chad. Since you mentioned the nose panel, I'm curious if there is any provision for lightbar mounting?

Yes! (Technically it has been from the start.) I just wanted to make it a more solid piece so it could take more abuse from low tree limbs, etc.
FWIW - the entire tent can be modified and tweaked to our customers liking. And...we hope everyone will share their personal mods here for others.
