The only bad moment we ever had was a bear "snuffling" around our campsite one night. I few tense moments there... that's when we decided to go to a hard sided trailer. If you camp a lot in bear country (Great Smokey Mountain National Park is where we had our encounter), it's worth thinking about.
That's one good point. In fact, it should be noted that some campgrounds in Yellowstone don't allow tents or tent trailers. This includes pop-ups and HTT with the beds out. However, I think you can use a HTT if you leave the beds up. This is known as "turttling" <sp?>
So if you want to camp in bear country often, consider a regular TT.
Otherwise consider a HTT you can successfully sleep your family in while turtled. Bears aren't the only reason to do so. You might want to do it while stopped overnight at a rest area or parking lot.
