At $6,000 for the automatic queen RTT it should be pretty good, one would hope.

Hi Steve

This is all I could find in a quick look.
Looks like a great bit of gear.

Can’t help with the tent itself, but the company is owned by James Cockburn who now is an owner ofKimberley Kampers, and before that he was an agent for Kimberley and owned SEQ Campers and Gear at Caboolture. Pretty sure James designed the RTT from memory, I have nothing but good things to say about how he looks after his customers from the dealings I had with him at SEQ Campers.

Backtrax was one of the options I looked at before buying. It looks like a really well made unit. Cons, for me, were side-by-side sleeping (having to climb over someone to get out), the front and rear windows suffer from the same issue as most lift-up fiberglass units- they need to be closed in hot, rainy conditions, leading to low ventilation levels (trust me, having used a Baroud unit up north one year, this is a significant negative). You can apparently purchase a second awning for the other side, increasing airflow. This would be a good option in my mind.


Other than that, expensive but a decent product.

Cheers,
Mark
