I'm looking at the Camping Lab RTT for the price. The above link is your best source for info and you can see the price varies from $700 to $2300 plus depending on size and company.

Ive done quite a bit of research on these. Theyre VERY expensive. I'm going to add one to the top of my camping trailer. Depending on your budget, resources and inginuity, making a fold out platform that conforms to the base of a traditional tent would be waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay cheaper. Thats the route Ill be taking.

same here! got several plans for it, as its an ongoing "brainstorm" project right now. I figure, if you have to assemblr it anyway, build it to your liking.
