Gator,

It self deploys in as much as you lower it, latch it, and it's ready to sleep in. There is no motor, just unlatching and gravity. So...it can self retract when you lift up the platform, the arches fold up, and you latch it, and are ready to motor. You might need to tuck in the edges of the material, so they don't catch.

Zeppi,

Yes to Cleveland, yes to sip down windows.

I believe the final production tents will connect via a screw down track, but I need verify that. Our product specialist did the final install procedure in Indiana, and I haven't seen that in person yet. I will look into it.

The only HTTs we are working with for 06/07 are from Aerolite, as we developed this product in partnership with them. We see a huge potential for this long term, but we aren't willing to over-extend ourselves at the risk of compromising quality. There are certainly other market segments we are interested in, but we are focused on the Aerolite product for the near future.

I'm curious.

I have a 2005 Kodiak 160 and the bunk end screens are ripping on both ends. I need to get it in to see what they can do under warranty.

Nice, sounds like an option worth buying for sure. Do you have the schedule for what shows it will be at? Is that publishable?

If not, can you tell me when it will make an appearance in Atlanta or closeby anytime soon?

Ricklug, As a current hybred owner (Skamper Kodiak K235) I would like to know how the canvas (or whatever the material is) is connected to the RV. The current Plastic J-Lock system is unreliable. There was obviusly no testing done to show how many times the plastic can be flexed before it fails (maybe the testing was done and that is why there is only a 2 year warranty on that part). I am picking my camper up after work today after spending close to $700 to replace the J-lock and canvas. Figured if I went with the option of having a new j-lock sewn into the old canvas and the j-lock tore again the blame would be put on the local seamstress. Also can your product be installed on the old bar supported bed ends?

Thanks for the info Rick. I'm looking forward to seeing this at the Cleveland show. Maybe I can take some pictures and give the readers a product report. Thanks Zeppi

Will this be on display at the Richmond VA or Washington DC RV shows?
