Paul - I am interested in the way you cartop the TI!
It looks like you have it rightway up supported by 2 roofrack bars and a T piece support coming off your towbar, without using any form of cushioning (pirate pillows) to prevent hull distortion. Am I correct in this??
perhaps the hull shape og the TI is not as prone to hull distortion but I think I would be concerned about it
certainly if I was travelling anything more than a short local distance.
Looking at your setup, I truly cannot imagine transporting yourself, wife, daughter and all the necessary equipment required for the TI + camping in you sedan. Is it possible to hook up a trailer while you have the T piece attached?? (Where did you get the T piece - what brand is it??) I suspect not
It must be a hell of a job loading the TI on your roof - although it would not be as difficult as loading it onto a high 4WD vehicle. I would appreciate your comments on the above.
When I did my first overnight trip with Stringy, Chris and Slaughter a year ago, I was truly amazed just how much equipment can be stored in the hull and rear loading area of the AI. However I did not have the added challenge of 2 female companions to factor in.
