RTT V2 low speed wind noise + 4runner

Looking to see if anyone else is experiencing a whirl or whistle sound with their v2 RTT on 5th gen 4runner. It happens around 35-45 mph. Once I get above that speed the sound goes away.

I believe it is coming from the front of the tent. There was another forum post which pointed out the drain plugs?

Any ideas on what could be causing this and a possible solution?


There’s a good chance this can be solved by a 3D printed part we have in-house called the “whistle reducer”. This piece clips into the drain hole at the front of your RTT and takes only a few seconds to install. Essentially it acts as a mini fairing.

Send a service request form over to our CX team and they can send one your way to see if that helps.

Awesome! Thank you for the quick reply. I will send a service request now.

That has been driving me nuts since I got my tent too! There is a pretty large pill-shaped cut out on the lower section of the front beam, right in the middle. I slapped a piece of tape over it and it went away instantly. I went back and cut a smaller hole to allow water to drain, but honestly my test always drains from the corners or, just drains directly into the tent area. Will definitely be interested in a whistle-reducer.

Sorry to hear you’ve had some whistling as well. That pill shaped drain hole is a functional part of the design, and we do not recommend covering it, but it sounds like our whistle reducer will be the right fix for you as well. Rad.
