REI used to rent tents but don't know if they still do that. I bought my first one -- an older model REI Half Dome -- on eBay from a guy that was upgrading to a newer model of the same tent. Price was right, tent was well cared for & perfect, so I figured if I didn't like moto-camping I could still sell the tent for what I paid. I used that tent for years. In fact, I only bought another one to get more headroom. The older REI Half Dome is still a hard tent to beat. Several other mfrs make a similar model. Who knows--you may find you like camping enough to do it more. Especially if your equipment holds up & you have a good experience.
