I’ve heard good things about this company but don’t understand why the price tag is what it is? What makes this different from a topper with a wedge tent on top (aside from the obvious that you climb up from the bed instead of using a ladder outside)? What am I missing here?

That’s like saying why buy a rooftop tent when you can buy a $50 ground tent

Why condescend? It’s a genuine question. I haven’t stepped foot in one of these before. It looks like a topper with a tent on top. Maybe it’s not. How would I know if I’ve never seen one? What makes it worth $13000 dollars? Maybe it is, maybe it’s not. Again, how would I know? What’s the point of a forum if not to ask questions and engage on this very sort of thing? Or are you on here to just be a prick and not be helpful?

Also, RTTs are wildly expensive. I know plenty of people that sleep well in ground tents still. And it doesn’t cost them $2-5000 to rest comfortably.

I'll answer you. Not sure why you weren't just given a straight answer. The difference is that you can enter the upper tent area from inside. Also, you can fold the bedding forward and move the floor forward, making it basically a small camper you can stand up in, dwell inside of, etc. This is great for inclement weather or buggy environments. Also, these so-called "wedge campers" are built specifically for this design. If you add a RTT to a shell I'm not sure how well it would handle the weight under certain stresses, off-roading, etc. Also, a good shell with side doors is pretty expensive these days, as are good RTTs, so I'm not sure how much you'd save. Last but not least, these babies are in high demand, so the price also reflects market forces. So there you go.

Thank you. I see the advantage of the stripped down camper and having inner access to one’s bed. I suppose it is one quarter or half the price of other slide-in campers, though you get built-ins and you can leave those free standing and drive away from your campsite for the afternoon. Everything is spendy these days, guess I gotta start making more money!

The other aspect that cannot be understated is the ease of setup/breakdown. It takes a minute.. and when its dark outside or weather sucks its really nice.. I have done the RTT, tent camping and wedge camper and the wedge camper is my favorite setup. I doubt I'll jump on the trailer/full camper experience.

You have to consider the cost of labor as well.

People tend to gloss over the labor costs of manufacturing something like this and the amount of time spent developing CAD files and running machinery, assembly, etc. etc.
