So since the beer to camp thread got me thinking of my camping trip next week, I thought I would continue on that thought.

What size tent do you camp with?

Here's mine for this year. Standard $30 walmart 3 person.
Should do fine for 4 nights.

In my back yard. I almost want just to camp here and stay home :rofl:

When I camp with the Concours, I take the 5 man tent. I like to be comfortable but the DR has less carrying capability. :blush:
Image

Of course ,that year I had my '83 xl600, which I had to trailer to camp. That bike seemed to be on the trailer more than the road. :OMG:
And the picket fence is foldable and kind of a tradition on this trip after 11 years :drinks:

2-man backpacker tent.

Image

It has side exits, on both sides of the tent, and both sides have gear vestibules, so it is pretty nice. My wife and I each have separate places for our gear, and we don't have to climb over each other to get in and out of the tent...

I have a one man tent, very very compact. Big Agnes seed house 1. Kinda pricey but I got it for about half price, industry discounts. I also have a mountain hardware 3 man tent that i got like 10 years ago for backpacking, very light weight but like 3 times the bulk. Still use it when me and my lady roll together.

There's something special about the minimal feel of a one man tent, but it makes changing in privacy more challenging. I enjoy the romance of it though, and I usually go for a hammock if conditions allow

Edit, only picture of the 1 man I have

Eureka Apex 2XT...similar to the model Acme Zoom posted

The rain fly creates two covered areas for your gear...great for moto boots and other gear you want to keep dry but don't want inside your sleeping area. It has proven itself to be waterproof on several occasions.

I use my Kelty Teton 2 backpacking tent. It's is super compact, light and very well made. Plus the poles are shorter than your typical tent so it's easier to store on the bike without the poles sticking out so far.

I use my old Sierra Designs Lightning, it was my canoe tripping tent BC(before children) and is from the early to mid 90s and still going strong. Its billed as a 2 person, around 4-5 lbs with lotsa room for me and my gear.

This is the only pic I could find from my old DRZ travelling days, the tarp is a MEC Scout which I don't carry much on the bike these days.

2-man Columbia with an entrance and vestibule on each side. It has sufficient space, but I've been considering something a bit larger for some longer trips. What's a couple of extra pounds on a motorcycle anyway.
