    Looking at picking up a Redverz Solo Expedition.
    I have owned two models of the Redverz in the past and found them both very functional and met my needs. ( tent / vestibule to stand in)
    As I reduced my moto camping over the past couple years, I decided to sell them.... well, seems I am taking another trip this coming year.
    Before I run out and drop a bundle, any comments, better still any lightly used ones out there for sale?

    Just bought one and put it under the Xmas Tree for my self. Haven't set it up yet so can't comment. It does seem to be a big roll packed down so I am going to have to seriously re-think how I load the bike. Hoping I enjoy being able to stand up to put my pants on plus have a place to sit out of the weather and that it will off-set the larger bundle I have to pack. Not for sale yet:D

    The Redverz tents are heavier than most. The functionality is what I have enjoyed in the past.

    I have one (original model- full size) that I used about 4 times- perfect condition that I would sell for a reasonable price. Make me an offer

    I bought the Solo tent. I love it but if I was going to do it again, I would probably buy the full size. It isn't that much bigger to transport and the extra space in the living area would be worth it I think. Not saying that you can't make it work but, I would probably do the larger.

    On the Northern most point of the Hampster trail. My friends tent to the left, mine to the right.

    Thanks for the input.
    I have heard the size and weight reduction from the Atacama (which I previously owned) to the Solo is not that big of a difference.

    Now your making me wonder if I made the right choice with the solo. I haven't been able to set it up yet as we still have a foot of snow here and more on it's way. I did compare sleeping area size compared to my current tent and they are roughly the same. As I only Solo tent camp now (pun) I don't need huge space, just enough for the Cot and my Personal stuff in the sleeping area. Chair and other gear can go in the garage.

    Yeah but with the cot, there is very little room to stand and turn around. Again, it works for me and love the huge working area. I often keep everything inside except the motorcycle and sit and relax in the vestibule away from the bugs and weather if necessary. My thought is that for the extra $50 and the little additions of size and weight, it is worth considering buying the full size instead of the Solo. Not knocking the Solo though, at all.

    They are awesome tents great quality. Just remember that it is huge and packed weight with the ground sheet is almost 15lbs! It will take up a lot of space on your bike packed. I had one and loved it, it was just too much to pack around. I like the Hawk and If I was in that market it would be my choice.

    I have picked up a tent that I hope will take care of my needs. Tall enough to stand in, vestibule suitable for sitting in when the weather is not cooperating and weighs 10 lbs.
