Nope sorry. but if I was to invest in a RTT I would first go and look at Tentco. they make excellent ground tents at excellent prices. so their RTT tents should be just as great. their roll up high density ground mattresses are also great so their RTT mattresses should also be great value :mytwocents:

Can't comment on the rest but if Howling Moon's RTTs are the same quality as their ground tents you can't go wrong.

Tentco have recently changed the design of their RTT but I preferred the old one (I think it will cope better in high winds). Managed to pick up a 1,4 m display tent from one of their dealers for R 6 500 excl mattresses and including cover.

So if you are not fussy and look around you may pick one up for a bargain with immediate availability.

For those that may be looking for a 1,4m wide RTT - I have a buddy selling a used Hannibal RTT for R6500. INcludes mattress and cover - condition good.
