    Iíve always wondered how wind and rain proof these RTTís are? Anyone ride out really nasty weather in one? (Like the kind of wind and horizontal rain that folds up or soaks 3-season dome tents)

    Good question. I'll bet this is where the JB and other clam shell types do much better.

    Honestly, thatís a big deal for me and itís why I keep going back to looking at teardrop style off-road trailers. Itís also why I use a top of the line, 4 season, mountain hardwear tent (even in the summer). As you well know, the high Sierras can be unforgiving. There are few things worse than waking up in the middle of the night to a collapsed tent.

    ROOF TOP TENT : What Should We Get?

    Just looked up Alu-Cab tents thinking they look pretty good and bomb proof. But Jesus Christ they are proud of them. They go for around 4 grand.

    My mom was a sales person and always said you have to believe in the products you sell. Up until she passed away she would still write letters (not e-mail) to companies she believed in.

    Or being soaked from rain run off coming up through the bottom of the tent. We carry "60 second" tents to use at work. They are fine when its dry but when it gets nasty you wake up cold and wet. For years now I've carried an REI half done 2 person tent. I've spent many nights in torrential down pours and woke up nice and dry inside. Also they are smaller so when its cold they hold heat better than the large tents.

    Small tent is warmer...that is truth.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
