Pops with Roof
The popup mechanism works great with roof on. The roof weighs maybe 200+ lbs — my DeWalt drill drives the winch just fine. With solar panels, the canvas and interior lights on it should still be no problem.
The 2×4 cross braces are there because I don’t fully trust the lift mechanism to stay up. I don’t have a way to keep it locked up yet and am just relying on the worm gear of the winch not liking to be driven from the load.
