I’m off in a few minutes to check out some new tents, as if I needed a 7th tent. I actually take 2 tents with me on these road trips. Our main tent is a four person tent that provides some room for the three of us, allowing me to set up that new air mattress I got last year, which the dogs seem to enjoy at my expense. I also take an emergency tent that I can set up quickly in foul weather or backpack into a campsite remotely located from where we park the Defender. On all five of my prior road trips, the tent I used for this purposes was a Northface 2-person 4-season expedition tent. It was a bit cozy inside the few times I used it with Leben and Erde in the past, and I imagine it would be even more so with Leben’s situation, so I decided to get a 3-person tent. The two candidates are the NorthFace VE25 or the Eureka K2 XT.
