    Sanjuanworms is pretty bitchin with the back deck and room for open storage without adding extra weight. That's the route I'd advise.

    That's unique for sure. I think they charge $2-3k just to redo the pop-up fabric so that justifies a lot of the cost. That is a sweet rig. I'd say 8k is fair if it's all in good working order.
