Well, I'm in and paid. It is looking less and less likely that my big tour is happening (I'm short on money, and, to a lesser extent, time). But I should definitely make it down for RDV.

It didn't take any time for me at all. I was in love the moment I saw it. Not that I'll be able to own one any time in the near future, but I am utterly smitten.

Hammock/tarp. If you set it up high, you can stand. If not, just stand outside your tent to get changed. No one is that worried about privacy when you are in the woods.
