For us, the ability to set up and tear down quickly really was a key selling point of a RTT. We have had the ARB Simpson III for a number of years and it has done extremely well... With that said the trailer we just got has a Freespirit Highcountry on it and I am very impressed with the quality of construction and the strength of the frame and hinges. Pretty sweet. With camping with our kids the RTT is cheating, and I love it. ;-)
I've really been leaning to two different setups. One ground one when the family is with me using a Gazelle T4 or T4+. I've heard nothing but good things on these tents. This would still require using the roof for storage.
Then when it's just me or me and my oldest boy, hard shell RTT. Easy to deploy and redeploy and theoretically I'd have less cargo taking up room inside.
Then maybe a third setup when I have the whole family and I'm not going to be hopping sites every night or every other night is just to rent a travel trailer. We don't go frequently enough to own and the rentals aren't too bad.
