I only recently learned the the acronym meant, and have never used one. Does anyone have any thoughts about them?
Their optimal use would be for someone who is traveling long days, spending quick nights somewhere and then who wants to quickly pack up and be on the road. They generally come with a decently comfortable mattress, you can usually leave your sleep gear in them ready to go, and they are forgiving of terrain if you are parked somewhere muddy, rocky, snowy, exc. Additionally in an area like Africa or Australia you could argue you are safer from animals and creepy crawlies.I only recently learned the the acronym meant, and have never used one.

Lol, I wouldn't go that far. I think ground tents with good mattresses are better suited for most people. Investing in an Exed Megamat and a decent ground tent will have similar size and comfort to most RTTs, and it will weigh less.Stupidest idea in a decade or two.
Good point, maybe I'll put a lightning rod on it . Honestly that's not something I ever had to worry about in California. I got snowed on and rained on, but thunder/lightning storms don't happen very often there.How comfy is it at 1am when a huge summer lightning storm pops up..I bet you crap your panties every time a clap of lightning strikes nearby.
@MNCarlYou can camp anywhere you want....dont have to look for soft level ground like with a regular ground tent.
You just flip the RTT open like a giant suit case , there is a foam mattress already in the RTT and you can keep your sleeping bag and pillow in the RTT as well.
Like I said you just flip it open and climb up the ladder and crawl in ...sleep like a baby.
