It's the medium sized 3 person 63" x 43" on their web site

It's in great shape and I don't think it has been used more than a few times. The plastic is still on the mattress.

New it's $1700 plus shipping

$1000

Is that the tent you just got with your new trailer ? I take it you have a better one you've already bought/owned ? If you don't sell it I'd be interested In About a month

If you go to the link you posted and click on accessories they make a 4x4 changing room for the Overland..Not sure if that is big enough for you Ken but maybe big enough for potential buyers??

I have a changing room with my Campinglab RTT, it is small maybe 4x4, great for changing and parking the PET....

It's a sweet RTT.

Why don't you just get the changing room for it from them?

I wanted a changing room that the ladder is inside to make the enclosed tent area bigger and more functional.

I like the ARB Simpson III, but that is designed for a roof top so the platform will be at shoulder level.

Just thinking out loud here but it would appear that unless you plan to raise the RTT platform that a "changing room" won't be all that useful other than for storing stuff to keep it dry or maybe allowing one person to sleep under it. Looks like you could maybe get one person between the trailer and the ladder?

Using it for a changing room looks like you'd have to plan on changing while sitting down or at least stooping real low. :dunno:

Except thats the Overzone, I have the overland. The changing room for the overland goes under the platform and the tent door and ladder are still outside

The reason a standard RTT like the ARB Simpson won't work well is the platform unfolds about shoulder high and the majority of the changing room you would not be able to stand in except right were the ladder is. Plus there would be extra material and the door would require stooping into. This is because the tent is designed to on top of a tall vehicle.

Ezi-awn makes a tent called the Globetrotter which the entire two person sleeping platform is the main platform and does not fold out, The part that folds out is a changing room of equal dimensions to the sleeping platform. This way you dont have to stoop under the platform because it does not fold out.

This tent is made for a trailer

The Eezi Awn Globetrotter Trailer tent is brand new for 2009. It has all the features and quality you have come to expect from Eezi Awn, but with a unique design that sets it in a league of it's own. The Globetrotter is designed for use on a trailer or vehicle roof with a height of no more than 1.5 meters, or 59". It measures 83"x63"x8" when closed, and weighs in at approximately 110 pounds. What makes the Globetrotter so unique is that the tent opens over the edge of your trailer or vehicle to create a roof line you can add walls to and create a dual level enclosed structure. The bed is the entire platform, roughly the size of a queen size bed. The mattress is a new, thicker 3" single density foam. A marked improvement in comfort. A short ladder is provided to enter the bed area, and can be attached at several locations along the interior side. The bed area is enclosed by a vertical panel that stretches from the tent base to the top of the roofline, and offers a mesh window for viewing the ret of the tent area. The room off the side of the vehicle measures 83"x63". the roofline of the room is angled at a 30 degree slope from the tent base to provide a door entry height of more that 6 feet. Encased in the roof line, in it's own duck cloth case, is a Series 1000 awning the stretches the width of the tent and spans out 67" from the far roof line edge. This, in effect, creates a shaded area of 83"x130", or 75 square feet, between the two rooflines. The awning rolls up and easily stores in the Globetrotter roof.
