    What Tent Is This?

    I've searched without success and I know I've seen it somewhere. Can someone tell me the brand? It seems I recall they sell them at rallys, but can they be purchased elsewhere? Thanks for any help.

    Is one side supposed to hold a bike? or it just a sunshade/vestibule?

    Hilleberg makes high end tunnel tents. Could be one of his.

    Whatever you want... it IS big enough to fit a bike in... buddy in Key West had one setup, but I cannot remember the name of the manufacturer... does look a lot like the Hilleberg.

    IMHO it isn't Hilleberg as this tent seems a lot taller than Hilleberg makes. It does look sweet though! and should provide plenty of space. The closest two tents I can think of, would be the Mountain Sun company tent http://www.mt-sun.com/catalog.php?type=product&id=76352 and the MSR Velo tent. Just my 0.02 cts

    Kurt,

    I asked on "BMW Sport Touring" forum and Mike O gave me this response. He knows the owner.


    "Bud,

    Just got off the phone with Siggi...He imported that from Germany (not available in the U.S.) Got it from Heine Gericke and 5 years ago it was $550 Euros. He says for a 4-5 day campsite its great, otherwise for overnite camping its a pain in the ass to set up and tear down."

    Hope this helps.

    Black and orange, of course.

    Another version of a tent with a big vestibule. For people who LOVE their bikes.
