Motorcycle tents offer the convenience of being extremely small, lightweight, and easy to pack. They’re often small enough to fit on the top of your bike, and they don’t take up much space once you get them set up. You’ll find that motorcycle tents have a smaller footprint than most other types of tents, which means that they’re perfect for those looking for a compact option.
Some motorcycle tents even come with a built-in rain fly, which can be extremely helpful if you expect to camp in an area that is prone to bad weather. Motorcycle tents are usually made from high-quality materials that can withstand the elements and are typically easy to set up.
Motorbike tents, on the other hand, offer a very different experience, enhancing users’ flexibility by allowing them to easily camp anywhere they want, whether by the roadside or deep in the backcountry.
Today there are many portable tents designed from the ground up precisely for motorcyclists and their riders. Below, we’ll introduce you to the best motorbike tent models currently on the market, along with the factors to explore when buying.
Here are 5 options so you can choose which one suits you best.
WOLF WALKER MOTORCYCLE TENT
Though not boasting as premium of construction
as some of the other more high-end models on this list, WOLF WALKER’s Motorcycle Tent is a solid mobile shelter that offers unbeatable value and bang-for-your buck. Crafted around a set of aerospace-grade aluminum poles, the tent features a main living area with 6.25” of headroom that’s supplemented by a fully-enclosed motorcycle port. Equipped with four separate entrances and a removable waterproof rainfly, this multifunctional moto tent breaks down to a 25” x 11” x 6” form that weighs only 12lbs.
VUZ MOTO VUZ-MT
Costing only $50 more than the previous item on this list while boasting markedly higher quality, the Vuz Moto VUZ-MT has long been one of the most popular moto-specific tents on the market. Made from a combination of waterproof canvas, 190T polyester, and B3 mesh draped over four aluminum poles, this tent has been outfitted with four separate entrances, a mesh screen, and a removable rain fly. Protected by a one-year warranty
, the VUZ-MT tent also features a generously-sized 9’ x 8’ garage port that affords more than enough real estate for loading, unloading, or wrenching on a bike.
SNOW PEAK AMENITY DOME M TENT
A high-end three-season tent with room for four, Snow Peak’s Amenity Dome M model was technically designed as a car camping tent, though its rugged construction, ample real estate, and oversized covered entry-port — the latter of which makes for a perfect mobile moto garage — make it a stellar choice for motorcycle camping or road trips. Measuring 30” x 10” x 9” when packed, this tent is comprised of a set of Ultralight Duralumin poles that support a polyester taffeta canopy that’s paired with a 210-denier polyester taffeta floor and a 75D poly-taff rainfly. Because this tent was designed for car camping
, it is fairly heavy, weighing in at just shy of 20lbs.
WINGMAN OF THE ROAD GOOSE TENT
An ultra-minimalistic, all-in-one mobile moto dwelling, Wingman of the Road’s Goose Tent features a hardwearing 14.8oz ripstop canvas canopy that wraps around a set of aluminum poles before extending out to cover the user’s motorcycle — which also creates a covered space between the tent and bike for storing riding gear
. Alongside the tent itself, the Goose also boasts an integrated high-density foam mattress and a built-in sleeping bag. Benefitting from ample customer feedback, the latest iteration of this minimalistic moto tent features a new exterior flap and redesigned compression straps with high-grade aluminum alloy, and quick-release buckles.
THE NORTH FACE WAWONA TENT
The North FaceWawona model is another top-shelf tent that, while not specifically designed for it, lends itself remarkably well to motorcycle touring
and camping. This is primarily owed to its hardwearing 7 and 150-denier polyester canopy construction and a massive covered vestibule that packs more than enough space to fit a full-sized, fully-loaded adventure bike — though, with a six-person capacity, the tent’s main living area can easily accommodate a second or even third scoot. Built around an ultra-rugged yet lightweight DAC MX pole set, the tent also features ample pockets and ceiling storage, as well as a secondary rear vestibule for stashing riding gear. And, like the Snow Peak Amenity Dome, this tent does, however, tip the scales at just shy of 20lbs, placing it on the heavier end of the spectrum.
