No modifications to mount it, however, the SkyKamp 2.0 has a wire latch that’s a bit tricky to latch when mounted to the pioneer platform. I have a tool that helps reach in and slip the cable over the hook. Not a big deal but it sometimes takes me longer to latch it than it does to break the shop thing down.

This is probably a bit anticlimactic but it actually works pretty well. It's a small, approximately 7" nail puller. It provides just enough reach to loop the cable around the catch.

I was looking for a version with a wooden handle but I couldn't find one at Lowes. If I find one I'll let you know. If I continue to use this one I'll probably find a rubber cap (or 3D print a plastic one for the end I don't use.

No. I did not have to modify anything to install my Ikamper Mini. I believe same applies for Skycamp 2.0.
Gotcha! Thank you. Whenever you get a chance, do you mind measuring the distance between the two mounting rails?

Can get you this for around $2500 CAD from the manufacture (from China 'unfortunately') if you are willing to wait for shipping. Apparently the thinnest aluminum shell camper on the market, at only 8 inches. And can have roof racks mounted on top too due to aluminum's stiffness.

FYI bringing up / down blankets and pillows is a true pain in the ass. If you like a single sleeping bag it’s less annoying but I don’t like sleeping bags.

These tents can’t store anything in them really. For me it was not an option.
