    These little lights are absolutely perfect for RTTs and also for hanging under ez-ups. They run on 3 AAA batteries for weeks. I'm still on the same set of the first AAA's and I'm going on season 3 with these things. $17.99 shipped (if you have a Prime account). I now have a set for my RTT and another for under the awning. They put out enough light that we use them under our ez-up for a full poker game.

    I have that exact same bag for the RTT for me and the wife. We love it. We used to sleep in it in a ground tent and a queen size air mattress but the RTT floor is much more suited for keeping it from sliding around.

    So far, nothing to complain about yet. On hot summer nights in AZ, I sleep more on top of the bag than inside because it is warm. When I used it in my Tent Cot just by myself, I folded it in half and either slept under 1 layer or 3 layers depending on temps and it was luxury. In cool weather it has been great, especially when you have that extra body to keep you warm. I'm 6'1" and 240lbs and it fits me and her just fine. She's 5'5" and 140 and we fit just fine both length and width.

    I like the lining of it alot, too. Holds in warmth like a flannel lining without being as heavy as flannel.

    You won't regret it. Our whole camping crew now has them and we hang them all around on the trees around camp and light up the place. I store them in a clear dry box when not in use, and I store them with the batteries taken out so they don't leak.

    I got a string of the ENO LED lights for hte outside of my tent and they are really bright. I hang them on the rainfly and can get in/out without a flashlight and they light up the campsite really well too.
    For inside I just use my Black Diamond Orbit - actually just bought a 2nd one - its super bright, doesn't use up a lot of batteries, I can leave it in the tent and when its packed the on/off switch is covered so I don't worry about it turning on accidentally and running the batteries down

    Ill see if I can find the videos I used when I learned how to install my sound system. It's surprisingly simple. Good to know too.

    Rack is almost ready for the Mt Bachelor to get thrown up on it. Hopefully by the end of the weekend I'll be camping in style.

    Im prepping similar, looks good. The 2 bars do you find is solid enough? How thick is the tube? Also do you have any worry about flexing the side walls or anything?

    I'm not really worried, but if the bed pushes out or becomes damaged I have plans to pull the whole bed and go custom flatbed UTE route.

    I think all i need for meh RTT is the condensation mat and i think I'm done.. I've covered all the general bases(sleeping bag, lights,) maybe get something to charge my phone in and i think it'll be good.
