Origins of the Boss RT1
15 years ago, we built our first rooftop tent back in 2006 and various custom versions over the following years. We were continually asked by our customers when we were going to release a production model to the market. So in 2017 we made the decision to make it happen. This led to 36 months of R&D with hundreds of hours being spent in the design, prototyping, development and product testing (the part we love best).
The design process of our RT1 began in 3D CAD, with around 8 versions being made before the final design was settled on. We wanted something that was built super tough to handle our harsh Australian conditions, have clean lines to help cut through the air, and look good.
