Re: [RC] Wussification of endurance - Diane Trefethen

Hi Carla,

Most of us budget conscious tent purchasers get a 2-man in the $30-$150 range. If you plan on going anywhere with serious wind conditions, you can't do that. You'll need a mountaineering or alpine tent, circa $400-$500.

Another intermediate step between a mild weather camping tent and a slide-in camper or LQ is a high quality shell/cap/topper. Properly installed and insulated, they offer good protection from the elements. Floor carpet kits that are removable add insulation from the cold and sound buffering without compromising your truck's "work" ethic.

Exhausting.  I have to say, I REALLY wish I had a LQ trailer or at
least a camper, because trying to sleep in a tent with high winds
whipping it all night - well, it's impossible.
