    Go out and explore find out what's best for you.. I started out with a 6 yr old pop tent and a 20$ hibachi grill... as I went out more I modified my gear and truck to suit my needs and goals

    How about a military style cot and lite-fighter tent?

    For the past year I've been gung-ho about getting a RTT, but lately I've been having doubts because of this. I often do show up at the campsite, unload, setup, and then take the truck somewhere else to hike or explore. So I've been starting to wonder if a RTT is really the way to go. But I think with some additional foresight - and not opening it up until you're ready to sleep, like you say - I still think it could work.

    I still very much want the benefits of a RTT. I've been sleeping on rocks and roots for 20 years. I'm ready for a penthouse.

    I think the main difference between overlanding and camping is 1) Camping: You go and setup a camp (one or more nights) and leave when you are done. 2) Overlanding: more than a weekend trip, multiple camp sites over a larger distance (Across the state, country, or even multiple countries). Overlanding is adventure travel, not go pick a spot by the lake for two weeks. Although that does also have its charms.
