Just ordered this as our RTT choice. We researched many tents and price points and decided on our limited usage, this will fit the bill. The annex is not available on their website yet, but I inquired and they have one available and on backorder for us. I'll try to keep this post updated once I receive the tent (early February) and the annex (March/ April).

I have their Nomadic 3 and it's a solid tent. Came with a bunch of aluminum shavings inside of it but nothing that couldnt be vacuumed out. You'll enjoy it!

We are really looking forward to using it, without breaking the bank.

Well the annex arrived today, well ahead of schedule. Tent is set to be delivered this coming week. And I fabricated a couple of battery bank light strips.

Un-packed and installed on the KB Voodoo Hi-Rise rails. While not ideal it is very possible to mount this by yourself, as I did. Mainly the technique was to lift it onto my back and then press it up to the height above the rack. I had the tent opened up and I'm impressed with the materials used, assembly and finishes in the tent. I have nothing to compare it to, however for $900 shipped to my door, I'm a "happy camper" (sorry had to be done).

On one of the warmer days I'll open it up again and see what other storage options I'll be fabricating, as I have some ideas already. Additionally I plan on the KB Voodoo crossbars remaining attached to the RTT, as I do not need it on the truck year round. I have a solution or two for the exposed rack ends which I'll share in this thread when I have something finalized. I'm looking forward to it.

Looks very similar to the small Smittybilt tent I have. It's a great tent. I just switched to to a rear open configuration. Not sure what the ropes are supposed to be for.

If you are speaking of the red straps from within the tent, they are to assist in entering the tent. If there are additional ropes on the Nomadic tent then I am unsure.

No, not those ones, in the link it showed a "what's in the box" image they show some stakes and ropes...maybe for the annex?

Annex or awning/rainfly? I know that while ordering their customer service was outstanding. Maybe give them a call.

Well my tent looks 99% the same but it's Smittybilt and they don't actually have customer service. I was just curious as I don't have those parts and I can't imagine what they are for.

So as I spoke of before I was looking for a solution for the exposed rack ends. I came up with this option. My very first leather project. I think it'll do for now.
