CVT Mt. Shasta Standard Stargazer.

It's an awesome tent, but we're probably going to sell it soon as we want to upgrade to something even more outlandish and unnecessary. Haha

Hey Captqc, between the two what do you see as the real selling points on the RTT upgrade? Trying to convince the wife but that price jump makes it hard for me to get her buy-in.

RTT sets up in one minute, plus you don’t have to empty the bed to go to bed. I also have an annex which adds a ton of room.

Awesome thread, I’ll be in the market spring time for a RTT was leaning towards the smittybilt overlander to really see how much Ill use it...but I was looking at a style with the overhang so if I add a annex the ladder will be inside. With that said I’m also looking at the HivisOverland Crag2 for not much more....decisions, decisions...

Geez, that smittybilt overlander sure has a nice price point. Having come from Jeeping I have reservations about the brand though. If something goes wrong you are on your own in my experience. Then again, sub $800... That HivisOverland Crag2 looks exactly the same but for $400 more (at least where I saw it)

I rock a Tepui Ayer 2..It's a 2 person tent which is nice keeping it fairly warm. Wasn't too expensive, BAMF had a deal which made it cheaper than directly from Tepui. Since i'm local to Tepui didn't have to pay expensive shipping and just picked it up from their warehouse.

I have heard of people getting them through REI and using their 20% off as well. I myself would probably rock it until it rips or I have a kid and need something bigger.

Many moons ago I started with an Eddie Bauer tent I bought at a yard sale and a Subaru Forestor. It collapsed on me during a blizzard but I was way too drunk to realize what happened. When I woke up I crawled out and threw it in the roof box. Good memories lol.
Now I'm married and have a trailer that's too big. Very comfortable.
