    Khyam Nimbus for me, plenty of room for one with space to spare for "stuff". Also has a porch which is handy for storing wet gear, cooking kit etc. Easy and quick erect/pack up with minimal kneeling required, a problem for those of us with more than a few miles on the clock. Will be in action at next weekends Dragon Rally.

    Biker plus for me. Can sit in the porch in my chair can almost standard up in it too which helps when putting Gear on.
    Great tent and easy to put up

    Oww much.


    Ps, Forgive me I've not looked at tents for a while, I'm sure it must be a good one at that price.

    LoneRider makes two top quality tents. Both have plenty of room for two, and both are top of the line quality. They are made by and for people who are actually riding the globe, and made to take the abuse of heavy use. I have both, and can highly recommend them both.

    The new AdvTent is a free standing tent that fits in your pannier. Surprisingly roomy for a really small packed size. This is the one I now take for trips where I want to limit volume and weight. It is also the one I would take on my next long trip.

    The MotoTent is a large tent you can stand up in, and actually park inside. (I actually have, a few times.) It is similar to the RedVerz (I guess that is the original) in quality and shape, but the size is between Redverz' 1 and 3 person versions. This is the the tent if you live on camp grounds for weeks, maybe two persons. I used it for three months in USA, worked brilliantly. And is still as new.

    Use my discount code ADVTHOR for a 10% discount.

    I bought a Lone Rider tent on Black Friday in preparation for a camping trip this week.

    It still hasn't been out of the packaging.

    Always a good idea, also saves you from entertaining the whole camp ground. A really nice thing about this tent is that the inner tent is already in place when you put it up, so it remains bone dry inside even in the rain.

    I put it up today for the 1st time. It took 40 minutes and let me tell you, had it been drying only slightly me and the whole tent, inner and outer, would have been fecking soaked.

    I put it up today for the 1st time. It took 40 minutes and let me tell you, had it been drizzling only slightly me and the whole tent, inner and outer, would have been fecking soaked.

    Edit: All down to me, not a criticism of the tent.

    Bill will never be a happy camper. There will always be something to worry about not being quite right.

    Everything will be fine. He just won't be happy, but he may be within happiness tolerances.
