Default Southern CO. trails & RTT camping
Been thinking of getting into overland / roof top tent camping for a while. Finally pulled the trigger on getting a rack made & picked up a ARB Simpson 3 w/annex.

Last week we went camping/running trails up to southern Colorado to the Trinidad, Pagosa Springs, Durango, Silverton & Ouray.

Here are some pics:

Cool pics. How does the rack attach to the bed? I've toyed around with doing something like this before just to get the additional space but I enjoy being able to lock the bed items down.

I went with the mount that TracRac uses to mount their racks. I just printed out their sheets showing where the stake pockets are & cut them out. Then bought the replacement rubber mounting blocks & base nut plates. I used camper shell rubber seal along the tops & figure if I take it off I can put some sort of clean tie downs on the 4 corners.
