    in the unlikely (!) event the top gets wet/ flooded, is there any provision for it to drain or are you going to be relegated to "sponge-duty"?

    a couple of scuppers and/ or some pvc tubing might make your life easier.

    I thought about that. It's sponge duty right now but I may add drains for rain / clumsy houseguests.

    Another update... wiring up the solar and ceiling lights, a flood for the driver's side, lockdown clamps, and the roof fully installed. Oh and the truck, ready for loading!

    A few more shots - mounting the car last night and today. Still need to get the tent, kitchen, and a few other things done.

    Had to pull the carpet in the surfboard compartment again... one of the attachment nuts pushed off the wall when I added the eyebolt. Oh and this setup is definitely a bit tight. Had to trim the truck umbilical cover, remove the camper-side umbilical door, and in general had a tough time getting the chains and hooks to attach at the base. Next camper will have to be a but narrower where it sits in the bed.

    Also, this was really difficult to load. Def going to need to get some jacks.
