Hard-Walled Rooftop Campers

The AntiShanty RTD Stows Gear When Traveling Between Locations

— October 2, 2022 — Autos
The AntiShanty RTD is a multifunctional rooftop dwelling (RTD) for avid overlanding adventurers to choose as a way to enjoy comfortable living in any environment. The unit works by being installed onto the roof of a vehicle where it will provide 28-cubic-feet of capacity inside when traveling between locations. This will drastically free up space inside the vehicle, while the aluminum construction promises to easily brave even the harshest environments.

The AntiShanty RTD weighs in at around 300-pounds and can be elevated with the touch of a button. The unit will provide just the right amount of space for sleeping with additional areas to keep cargo stowed. The unit is priced at $9,500 and is expected to start being delivered in Q2 of 2023 with reservations available for $1,000.
