    This has been happening more in CA too. Especially in areas like Lake Tahoe where the bears are increasingly coming into populated areas. Even the mountain lions in the SF Bay Area are coming into populations-and not just the periphery but the traveling miles into city centers.

    So I need help in deciding wether to buy an awning for my TepuiRTT or go with a quick pop canopy ?
    I see the quick pop as being bigger 10'x10' compared to 4'x6' and the quick pop can be moved around easier
    I'm sure some here have had both .... What are the Pro's and Cons ?
    I'm not sure what road to go down ?

    The pop up 10x10 canopies are big! I don't bring mine with on wheeling weekends because there is not enough room in the truck for all the gear, dogs, coolers, etc. So based on that I want to get an awning next summer. When I am camping with my bumper pull camper, that is a different story. Then I love to have it set up for the occasional rain and for sun shade.

    I bet either Tepui or CVT will be able to help you with a new cover.

    this. at least if the dimensions of your tent match or are really close to one of the CVT or Tepui models.

    survived another Yelly/Teton trip...no glamping comments this time so I guess I'll keep the tent. I forgot that this is European/Aussie travel season...I was camped across from some Aussies and they actually knew what the tent was before I set it up! That's a first....they were quite impressed that RTT's have come stateside too. And some folks down the way had a tentrax with a nifty shower setup. Kinda like this...

    Mike, IIRC your camping lab tent is just about the same as the Tepui Kukenam. If you can measure the dimensions of the Camping Lab tent when it's closed we can verify and I can help you with a travel cover if you are interested.

    I see only three weak points with the RTT - two would be user error and one product defect - either I'll lose my metal rods for the awnings, I'll tear the cover or a zipper will break. Other than that they seem pretty durable
