I have an out of state dealer that will give us 20% off, no tax, and pass through the shipping charges they pay to Tepui.

 

Update - I put the order in on 5/28/15 and am waiting to hear back for a ETA.  Tepui has a shipment coming in soon so hopefully we will get allocation there.  If anyone else wants in on this deal let me know ASAP.

Here is the list of orders so far:

1 )Nick D. - Autana Ruggedized - Orange
2) Nills T. - Autana Ruggedized - Silver
3) Michael P.  Ayer
4)

I've already put a reserve on a Tepui or I'd jump all over this. Jeeze Nick, way to take your time making this post...

 

They did give me a "Club Discount" though, so make sure you mention NCLR

Nick,

 

Like Justin mentioned, tell them (Evan is the owner) that you are an NCLR member and you'll get a discount. you can pick it up in Santa Cruz to save on shipping

 

I'm very happy with my "Autana" except for the zipper but i think they're using a better one with the current model.

So you guys that have the autana (a 56x96 sleeping area tent) or similar from cvt or tuffstuff- what do you think of the interior room? Good enough for 2 but not 3 people? I see cvt calls it a 2 man mt shasta tent and tepui calls it a 3 person autana but i think its the same tent. Seems the tuffstuff guys are selling it for sub-1k where the others list much higher.

Does anyone know are they actually the same quality/construction minus color?

I've never seen the CVT in person but it does look very much like the Tepui. As far as sleeping space goes, the Autana is perfect for two adults and a small child (under ten), which is perfect for my self and two kids.

One trick for going up the ladder without shoes (painful), buy one or two (depending on ladder length) swimming noodles, cut a slit all the way down the length of it then cut sections about 12 inches long and just simply wrap it around each step...ahhh, no pain!!

I'm partial to Tepui because they have been very supportive of our club by donating an RTT for the annual raffle for the last two years.

Group Buy?

 

YES!!  I'd LOVE for a group of members to buy me a RTT!  Consider me in for that part of it ;-)

 

As mentioned above, Evan and the folks at Tepui are great partners of NCLR's.  Standing discount, local Santa Cruz company, they've been to our events and we to theirs...

 

If what they have works for you - go with Tepui, Further, may be worth a road trip to Santa Cruz, meet the folks, see the operation get questions answered, head over to the Beach Boardwalk, ride some rides, catch a show... not all bad.

 

Cheers,  TO

i'm sure most of the players are at overland but i'll try them next week.

 

CVT gave me a good deal on my baja rack.  i read a ton about the tepui and the way their product has evolved.  there have been issues but they have been good about improving their product and their customer service seems very good.  ideally i would like something before the sierra expedition week.  i could see myself using it a lot then.

So i talked to Evan.  real nice guy.  i don't know if should post the couple discounts he mentioned or not so i won't. perhaps this should be moved to the members section?

 

anyways he can give us a discount. given that they are not that far away i would probably just make a trip down there to pick them up.

 

only bummer is since they are in CA we have to pay tax.  it may be cost-effective to find a dealer of theirs out of state to buy from and pay shipping.  not sure yet.  

 

i'm down for an Autana Ruggedized.  i'll update the list in the first post.

If they have it, seems as far for you as Santa Cruz...if the tax is that bad.

When i was buying a RTT, i did some research and found out that the Tepui tents were manufactured by the same company that makes the ARB RTT just with a different company logo.  When you buy an ARB tent, you are paying for the brand not the quality as they are exactly the same.  I post that question to Ivan and he confirmed. 

 

I have downside my camping gear since then,  I went from a pop up trailer, to a RTT down to a tent and now i just sleep in a hammock. :-)  I like to travel light.

Hey Nick,

 

My apologies for coming into this late in the game, but what tent are you getting? The first link you posted says sold out? I like the idea of the RTT that extends to the the back of the cargo area.

 

What is the price of the tent you are getting?

 

Regards, David

However, your alcohol consumption has gone way up, which has the side benefit that the hammock "feels comfortable". :-)

Hi David, I will most likely be going with the autana ruggedized from tepui. The website does say sold out but when I talked to them they indicated availability in a week or two.

So the standard discount for the club is 12%. I may be able to get up to 15% depending on how many people we get to do it.

I also plan on seeing if I can get a better deal through one of their dealers out of state depending zales tax vs shipping. I have updated the first post to indicate who is onboard for the buy.

I was talking to Tepui two weeks ago about purchasing the Autana ruggedized in silver. They were out of stock at the time, but said that they would have more in after the Overland Expo. They offered me a 15% discount because I talked to them at the Overland Expo booth last year. You can add me to the group buy if it helps.

Thank you,

Nils

update - I've got an out of state dealer that will give us 20% off, no tax, and pass through the shipping charges they pay to Tepui as long as we ship it somewhere with a loading dock (no problem).
