    Wow, they really installed the ladder brackets like that?

    It had predrilled holes but I realized they were incorrect once I tried attaching the ladder.

Size is slightly off (SB is 4 inches wider) but parts match well (zippers, slider) and the only modification that may have to made is making another hole for metal rod that supports the window opening on one side.
    Couple crappy pictures from my driveway set up are attached ;-)

    Do you have any closer pics to show where it's short and the hole you had to make? Is it the regular annex or the ruggedized? Not sure if there is a zipper difference or not btween the two. Needing an annex for mine. Looking at the Tepui and the CVT 72" wide versions.

    Thanks,
    Shane

    I don't have any close up picture - all it is a small (maybe 5 inch) section of the zipper in a corner that does not fully close. Otherwise seems to fit perfectly, I didn't have to make any mods. It's a regular xl annex. Honestly I don't think I would like the ruggedized version as this one is plenty heavy to handle. I put a tarp under the floor for protection- yes, it has a floor which is great as SB regular size annex is only walls.
    Hope that helps

    Looks like the factory drilled the holes for a CVT/Tepui width ladder.
