    Question for ya'all. We have a RTT that is inbound over the next couple of weeks, and we are trying to decide on some options. Basically it comes down to awning or annex. Both zip into the overhand so that getting in and out of the tent is weather covered. The awning will be quicker and easier to setup, but the annex will have the options of hunkering down in case of truly terrible weather and or a bug storm. Thoughts?

    Just back from 12 days in Glacier, Jasper and Banff National Parks. Towing the teardrop trailer I built over the last four months. Great trip!

    My CVT Shasta (Summit) came with an annex, and I have an awning as well. After 20+ times deploying the tent, I have yet to use the annex, but have used the awning 5 or so times (mostly for shade). We have, however, had an exceptional weather this summer so the annex has not been needed yet.
    This may or may not help you with your decision.

    Did you go out to CLC Boats for the build or go for the at home build?

    It's the CLC kit. Took about 4 months to build.

    Can anyone recommend a good ground tent? Interior space around 80"x80" if possible, quick set up, good quality, holds up to elements (wind, rain, etc), additional annex for standing up is preferred. I feel like RTTs are not a good choice for us (2 humans, 3 large dogs) especially with the ladder and total weight (550+ including the RTT itself) on top of our bed shell (will not be using bed bars - need to keep the truck bed enclosed). Oh, also what type of mattress/flooring so we don't have to lay directly on the ground? TIA!

    For your on ground sleeping duties, get some self inflating sleeping pads. GF and I both used these from Lightspeed outdoors and had our mummy sacks on top of them. It'll help if you can muster up that last bit of air from your lungs to give them that little extra bit of cushion by firming them up a bit more. They are self inflating, but adding the bit of firmness goes a long way. I'm 5'8" 180lbs and had no issues with feeling the ground while on these in the dirt.

    I bought one from costco and one on AMZ, but remember I paid ~$52 for each.
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00JSO9VH2/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    They roll up and come with a storage sack.

    The two fit perfect in our little 3P backpacking tent..
