    This is the closest you’ll come to hearing a company admit they screwed up.

    Nice video, but the AT setup is the only thing close to a cap. and that's $9 grand in Habitat or Summit format. I'm really expecting to see a proper fiberglass cap, probably mimicking the JL hard top.

    Interesting . . . can't make out the manufacturer . Looks too "hardcore" for my taste - want something I can Leave on that looks more like a "traditional" CAP but with the tent too - that for me is still the LEENTU UTE . . . but until I'm ready to pull the trigger, I keep on researching . Never know what lies around the corner . . . ?

    I'm ready to get my jt next year. Thinking about fabricating my own front and rear bumper bed rack and side steps, I'll build them how I want them. Should be fun

    I'd like to see a shot of the camper opened up. It looks like the hardtop might be an A frame rather than a V.

    If this is another one of those Heavy, $$$$ "Swiss Army Knife" Rigs . . . meh ! It screams this is my "SAFE" come break in if you can," to ME . . . just me, just an opinion . I prefer to KISS it as much as possible while still having some basic creature comforts - such as a roof top sleeping area I don't have to Crunch my 6ft frame into ! So for me, so far, I'm (again) leaning heavily in the LEENTU UTE direction (JT) or IF Ursa Minor EVER gets off it's ASS and actually Presents us with the new JLU popup . . . . . . well . . . ? . . . we're STILL waiting nearly 2 years since YOUR 1st announcement of . Pretty much given up on that and hoping "others" take up the JLU Cause !

    Yea I should of recognized their "signature" - exterior arm extensions, and $$$$ Base Price . . . they're good at the Add-On "game" of pricing - just like auto manufacturers .

    A fiberglass cap will probably not allow you to install a RTT on it, particularly if you take it off-road.
    If all you want to do is to keep your groceries dry then that's fine but that's not what you'll find at SEMA.

    I am ordering an Alu-Cab canopy today. It has just been approved for production and should be here in the first quarter of 2020. I have used these on extensive off-road expeditions and to my mind nothing else on the market comes close considering it's weight, strength and durability...but everyone has different needs.
    BTW it starts out at about 3K.

    I tow a trailer/camper for sleeping quarters so no need for a RTT, just give us a basic hard shell and I'm good to go.
