    rtt = roof top tent? if so then I imagine you winterize it like any other tent, make sure its clean and dry then put it away. if you leave it on the roof of your vehicle guess you should probally make sure it seals REALLY REALLY well, if its got seals to keep it sealed up then lubricate them with with something thats not bad for the seals and wont freeze that way you can open it if you do some winter camping

    I gotta work my English, when I used <<winterize>>, I meant getting ready for winter camping... not storing for winter season...

    I do a fair bit of winter camping in my RTT, I like to keep it simple, minus 10 degs rated sleeping bag and two hot water bottles (boil up the water on your camping stove before going to bed) and a couple of blankets ... you'll will be warm as toast !

    So after 40hrs of shop welding, things are getting together, next step is to install my heater inside the new alu box

    Re: RTT+heater?

    crazyguys response was hilarious. I knew exactly what you meant and have been looking for a similar solution to cold winter camping. A heater is the one and only way to do it like a king but what really are the options ? does the heat system your planning on using have some sort of ventilation for the gas smell ? i have an suv tent attachment

    This heater is kinda neat, to better understand it look at this PDF. PDF is the next newer model up.
    But it should give you a better understanding... Separate cumbustable intake and exhaust, separate hot and cold air duct.

    Small for it's output, the HS2000 has a small current draw, 1.4 a/h.
    Kinda expensive, but if some thought went into the install it would be transferrable to your next RTT/camper/ W.H.Y.
