    I finally pulled the trigger on ordering an RTT. Hundreds of hours of YouTube research, yada yada. I went back and forth countless times, added multiple tents to carts online without checking out.

    I decided on Roam Adventure Co. out of Austin, TX. I know they're all basically the same (minus the $3000+ gucci tents), so I was very close on the Smittybilt since it was so cheap. But, I liked that Roam (like the other main RTT companies) is solely based on tents/overlanding. I'll post a review once it arrives!

    Ive been considering both of those also, does this one differ from the Smittybilt in any way? Cant wait for more pics when you get it.

    I don’t own a Roam tent, but I’ve gone on a trip with the owner and a bunch of other industry people all running their tents.

    They are a 15/10 on quality and design. The owner is a serious engineer mixed with a true outdoorsman. Every thing is though out, especially weight concerns.

    If I buy a RTT, it would be a Roam, hands down. I’ve seen most of the models, and they’re 100x nicer than even the pictures.

    Support then because they’re a great company, owned by great people, or simply because they are immaculate.

    I’ll know more once I use it this coming Friday night, but for the price I got similar features to the higher cost Tepuis I think. Clear vinyl in the rain fly so we can still see out of the skylights during rain!! C’mon, man, that’s cool.

    Like I said earlier re: Smittybilt, I preferred going w/ a company that is solely RTTs and outdoors. I imagined what would happen if I had an issue and had to call Smittybilt: “Umm I have an issue w/ ONE of the THOUSANDS of different products you make...” vs calling Roam: “Hey guys, I have a question re: your RTT...oh which one? The Vagabond.”... THE END!
