@SmartCap You've got a vendor in San Antonio, TX charging just short of $1k over MSRP for out the door. looking at other pricing, tax, and shipping thats like $500 for installation! is that normal for dealers?
Thanks for your comments. Our dealer network is made up of independent businesses, and therefore they have the option to sell our products at whatever price they choose. As there are many dealers in your area, and across North America, you many want to do some price comparison shopping.
Thanks again, and we look forward to seeing a SmartCap atop your rig very soon!

Thanks for the info. Are y'all looking to do pickups in Ft Worth at any point in the future? Or are y'all only going to operate through dealers?

Our new facility in Ft Worth will be strictly for manufacturing. We'll continue to have our products available through our dealer network, as well as directly through our website.

I’m in the process of using the roof Rivnuts to put threaded rod about 5-6” (to not obstruct window) and run either a piece of plywood or get a custom sized molle panel to mount there. Use it as a high shelf for long items such as camping table, chairs, recovery boards. And then be able to mount items under it as well.

havent posted with the cap installed yet….

Nice rig! Is that a 270 awning? What load bars did you use to mount your RTT and awning? My uncle has a roofnest RTT Condor (looks exactly like the ikamper) and a 270 awning as well, currently mounted on Leitner Design rack. He is seriously looking into swapping it for a RSI smartcap and we're looking at mounting options for the 270 awning, as the mounting brackets for those are quite big. We are looking to see if we can use the Leitner load bars on the smartcap, cause those are 60" and can mount the tent, awning, and his road shower.

made my own load bars using metal extrusions. Everything I did to mount everything always ended up putting the tent higher than I wanted when using other mounting systems.

270 awning. IKamper 2.0. Shower awning. All is mounted to the load bars. The shower is actually mounted to the rails from the iKamper and swings out 90 degrees. Video below shows the awning and shower opened up. I’ll take some pics of how everything is mounted later for you.

Can you share some pics of how you mounted your awning?

So I have 1.5 x 1.5 metal extustions running across the rsi cap support rails Tent lays on that and strapped to it. The awning bracket fits on top of the extrusion and I set it when the tent was open to make sure the shell clears the awning

Wondering if you found any dealers in the Fort Worth area that has these in stock 👀
