    Default Tents

    Hi guys

    I am looking for a tent that I would be able to attach to the bike for longer stays away from home. Any suggestions?

    I would suggest a 3-4 person dome tent with 2-3 collapsable fibreglass poles.

    Pros
    They tend to pack quite small
    light to carry ( 5kg and less packed weight in most cases)
    easy to pitch (15 min pitch time in most cases)

    Cons
    They dont like strong winds
    Flame resistant material does still melt if it does come into contact with hot exhausts

    I bought a tent from game a few years ago - 2 man. The thing has tent + 2 chairs + 2 sleeping bags. All rolled into the size of a small duffel-bag.

    Also look at the http://www.campmaster.co.za/product.htm?productID=92 I have one like these and they are great. Slightly larger size on the inside, but more than enough space for a helmet, jacket, boots, gloves, backpack, sleeping bag, pillow, 3 bottles of rum, 2 bottles of coke and charcoal for a weekend....and if you are so inclined you can also fit a carton of cigarettes in it.

    If you want a tent specially made then try Christies Sports,

    35 Kendal Road
    Diepriver
    Cape Town
    021 712 5020

    Otherwise Game and Makro etc, have plenty options to choose from.

    I've got a unique problem that most small tents are not long enough for me to lie down in.

    Got a nice 2 man tent from camp master that fits...

    Will check name when i get home and let you know.
