Yeah, they are open Monday to Friday (gotta have the weekend to wheel). Good people to talk to and will answer all your questions. Best part is they are open late (till 7:30pm)

I know Bobby has started selling a moisture barrier as a few people have ordered it. However I don't see it listed on their website. I'm sure if you called them up they would be able to take your order over the phone and I believe it comes cut to fit in your specific tent.
Or you can order a similar product here - same basic idea

If Craig wasn't so rude, maybe he would've taken a picture showing the other 3 in that camp site...

Great thread for those of us in the market. My wife and I are really looking forward to camping "in luxury", and the more I read about CVT the more inclined we are to get one!

It was...absolute silence other than the creek running, clear skies at night and there were SO MANY stars! It just took a hell of a lot of effort to get there! Worst trail I've ever been on!

Yup! I figured after the group buy we'd have a lot of happy RTT owners to share their thoughts. If you have any questions ask away!

Any questions? Concerns? Ask us TW'ers and RTT owners...and if we can't help Bobby from CVT is lurking here too.
Honestly, I don't regret the purchase at all. Having the tent has been great - so much more comfortable than a ground tent. If you're a camper "on the move" everyday or just can't stand to be in a campground this is the way to go!

We have an almost 2 year old son, and I'm working on an expedition build so we can hit the woods as a family. We'll be in Acadia for the first week of October. But if we can push farther off the beaten path... Awesome!

Kids love the RTT. I have some friends that have two little kids and whenever I'm at their house they want me to set up the tent so they can hang out up there Its like a treehouse without a tree I guess. The rules are: no rough housing, no jumping and when they want out they have to ask for help to get down the ladder (we leave a cell phone in there for them just in case).

As long as you have a semi-level spot to park you're good to go. I would suggest that if you get an RTT you get some RV leveling blocks (they look like big, flat legos) to park on just in case.
First week of October? Better make up your mind quickly! Its nice to have some time to get used to setting up and taking down the tent before your first real trip with it. The extra, ground level, space that the annexes have is great for storing gear (especially in bad weather) and probably more important with kids around.

LOL! No way we'll have one by then, it's been a long slow build. But learning as much as I can so we can enjoy it as much as possible. I plan on building the rear rack to accommodate the tent as well as other useful features.
