    Anybody with Redverz Tent?

    Been looking again lately to simplify my gear, camp setup! This tent seems to eliminate the extra parawing I carry for shade and protection from general weather,sun and so on. Its all one package and apparently big enough to provide all the above. I have not been a BIG tent advocate thru most of my camping life, keeping'em small. This by Redverz is a big tent, against my grain, so to speak. I like the idea, however and wathcing the videos at their website is very appealing, but that sales/marketing at its finest. ANY real users out here in BMW land like the tent, have opinions? Around 550$ I think for these, so its an upgrade for most to go here in $$$. Boy, they sure look easy and fast to put up, I LIKE that. I spend too much time now with parawing and all else. THX, Randy

    Thumbs up Love Ours!

    Bought one last summer. I can set it up by myself in the same time it takes to set up our 4 person Eureka. Packs almost the same size as the Eureka. We travel 2-up most of the time. Nice having a dry place to dress standing up. Buy the optional ground cloth that goes under the sleeping area. Once installed it stays connected and makes for an easy setup tear down. We would buy this tent again as we're very satisfied.

    THX Chuck:)

    I've been in contact with them in Colorado already and got quick turnaround replies via email today. A lot said for a (Redverz owner)guy watching his email, he cares to answer promptly! I will order one before my first outing(soon) this rally season. Wife likes green one. Any advantage to that bright yellow one? I heard flying BUGS like yellow? Unknown? Maybe a myth! See yall in Salem. Randy"Polarbear"

    Randy, we bought the yellow thinking it might be a bit cooler in daytime temps. Guessing it will show the dirt more than the green. A number of rally friends have this tent...4 yellows, 2 green. Three bought their tent when yellow was the only choice. See you in Salem. We'll be the GSA by the yellow tent!

    As one who is allergic to bee and wasp stings, I can assure you that a bright yellow will attract those critters, just like a colorful flower. I don't know if it has the same effect on mosquitos and other pests.

    I have one from when they were called Nomad tents (version 1) and like it. It came with a pole that didn't have enough segments and the owner of the company sent me a whole new set of poles of a more robust design very quickly. What I've found is that I really like it for the times I'm at a campsite for more than one night. It doesn't take too long to set up and tear down, but it does take longer than my backbacking tent. So it if it is a quick one night trip or many long riding days and late night setup then I opt for the small tent. Otherwise I go with the big one. Just really nice to be able to stand up and get dressed in the morning and I love having the covered space to stash the panniers and set up a chair.

    When I was ATVing ,my buddy had a yellow Kawasaki atv and we made him park it far away from camp cause the yellow would attract lots of bugs! no kidding!

    This is very good information--thanks for posting.

    For me, my nose/sinuses are pretty sensitive to fumes and smells and I for sure don't want my bike parked that close to where I'm trying to sleep. No desire to breathe in gasoline fumes, motor oil fumes, gear oil fumes, tire rubber fumes, squashed bugs odor, etc. This tent's concept is more show than go IMHO.
