I was beyond stoked when I found out that I was getting a V2. Once my pick up date had come, I loaded up the truck and made my way out to the GFC shop.
- They started installing the camper on my truck it was an awesome experience to watch. They really know what they are doing when it comes to installing them, and are genuinely fun people to hang out with.
- It was great how they show you how everything works and what all the features of the tent are.
- Its cool to see how the company has progressed from their original design all the way to their most recent V2 camper.
- Its a bad ass camper.
- I had to wait just about 1 year to get this tent, which is a problem when all of their competitors (also made in America) take 3-4 months to complete your build.
- After waiting 1 year to get my GFC and driving 1,000+ miles to get it installed (because to have them deliver would be an additional 8 weeks) they didn’t have part of my order. I had ordered my GFC with the additional beef bars they offer. When I got there and asked where they were, “sorry we don’t have that piece of hardware at this time, we will ship it and the bars out to you”. That is absolutely ridiculous when you have to wait a year to get it and are spending a near or even upwards of $7,000. Covid is no excuse. Don’t tell someone their camper is ready if it really isn’t.
- After making the trek back home with mainly traveling paved roads, and a few dirt trails the main supporting members of the GFC (the new bars that are bolted instead of welded) were already loose and rattling. What kind of quality control is that? They market these campers as being “the most off-road capable tents”, Burghley, design to be hucked” when it can’t even stay in one piece driving home from their factory.
- The most recent issue is that 1 of the new “quick release fasteners” had rattled completely loose and fell out when I was driving…no idea how im going to fix that. Also, 1 of the fasteners on the passenger side doors is stripped and will not come out.
I honestly do love this tent, but because of all the issues I have had in the short time I’ve had it, it makes me frustrated. I feel as if I have to go around and check every single fastener that is on the V2 because I don’t know what is going to fall out next… Im writing this review so that people have an idea of what their GFC may be like, so they aren’t as disappointed as I was after making it home.
