There is a V1 for a shortbed tacoma (gen 3) for sale where I live. It’s priced at $6000. I’m wondering if this is a fair price and also wondering how much I’m missing without going with a V2? I honestly can’t afford a new V2 so just curious.
I have had a v1 for a while and there are definately pros and cons:
I agree with @jedgar that the frame change was likely, all things considered a downgrade that GFC made for cost savings.
The tent portion though is out and out better on the v2. I would love to have the tracks around the tent, the fabric is significantly upgraded on the v2, the snap system on the v1 is kinda a bummer, and the struts being inside is a much better design. That being said, I have removed the tent several times and that would have been much more of a hastle with the v2.
I love my v1, and none of those things were worth the extra coin to me, just pointing out what the differences are.
