The ATACAMA™ Expedition Tent
Why Atacama? The revolutionary design offers more usable space, a separate garage and packs small. It’s considerably more tent for just 21 inches x 10 inches packed and on a motorcycle that's a big deal. Even a minimalist traveller rides with a helmet, boots, armored jacket and pants. This alone is a huge pile of gear to store, and if you’re riding two-up that's double the load. If you sleep in anything less than a 2-person tent that gear has got to stay outside in the elements, or it comes in leaving you with little room to stretch out and get truly comfortable. Stop compromising. The Atacama is so thoughtfully designed you can even stand up inside, and if you didn't already know, standing up inside a tent is life-changing.
Stand Up Inside. Packs to 21" x 10" and Weighs 14 pounds.
Ignore the gargantuan garage for a moment. We know, it’s so spacious. Let’s start with capacity. The tent sleeps 3 but is designed for all configurations of 1, 2 or 3 campers.
Real world - how big is the bedroom?
1 Up - Think twin bed XL with a bed side camp chair and your riding gear generously spread about the room.
2 Up - A queen size mattress with ample space either side for your gear and your own unique entry/exit door.
3 Up - Pack it all in. Plenty of room for three standard pads but personal gear, like stinky socks and boots will store out in the garage. Need even more capacity? Use the garage area for additional campers. Throw a custom fit garage ground sheet down and invite a handful of friends to sleep over. That’s functional, versatile design at its best.
This is where it all happens in the Atacama Tent. The two opposing garage doors taper up from the bottom so you can ride any size full touring adventure bike with panniers straight through and park inside. If sleeping with your bike is not your thing stretch out and park chairs instead for coffee or meals. This vestibule is huge. One thing you'll have in common with other Atacama owners, you never knew how much you wanted to stand up inside a tent until you could. Consider yourself warned, your friends will all want to hang out here.
Let’s get all geeky for a moment. When a storm comes through and that deluge of rain hits rest easy, our tents are waterproof. To be more specific, at 4000mm hydrostatic head we set the gold standard. If your tent specs have less than 3000mm on the outer fly, it’s not expedition quality and barely useful for half hour of light drizzle. Read some of our testimonials to understand why we take this so seriously.
Good poles are the difference between a round-the-world trip and a failed weekend music festival. We source and build the finest aircraft grade aluminum poles available. We have pre-bends in ours, so finely designed they have already been contoured to reduce the stress on them. Whatever your trip brings these are designed to bring you home.
ATACAMA ACCESSORIES - Complete your Atacama set up with custom fit groundsheets for the sleep area and garage or a 50 liter dry bag to stow it all away.

I have been using this tent for motorcycle camping trips around North America from Bike Rallies to National Parks and everything else that comes along . It has been through violent wind and rain storms in the mountains and dust/sand storms out west that have trashed other tents around me and this thing hands down is built like a tank and the best tent I have ever owned or ever used in over 30yrs of motorcycle camping. The room it offers being able to cook or hang out or whatever in foul weather and be comfortable is one of it's best features over all. The sleeping area fits a queen size air mattress with plenty of room to still be able to move arount it or stash more gear. The height is another big plus i'm 6'4 and this really works for me. It may not be the smallest or lightest but after using it you will find a way to make room for it. You get what you pay for and this tent is worth it for what it has to offer and to anyone looking for a tent for motorcycle camping or any type of camping I can't recommend this tent enough. Be Safe and Happy Adventuring!!!!
I called Redverz on short notice, asking them to expedite delivery of their Atacama Expedition Motorcycle tent for my trip to Sturgis, South Dakota. They did, and I used it during my 11 day round-trip to Sturgis from Mariposa, California. The first night was near Ely, Nevada, at Ward Mountain State Park. The set-up was intuitive, and quick. I felt like I was sleeping in the Taj Mahal, and it was comforting to have my Harley (the biggest model for 2020) in the tent with me. Thank you to Redverz for a superb home away from home!
I took my tent out camping last weekend where we had some heavy rains all night long. It maintained interior dryness 100%! Super high quality materials and design. You can tell they really put a lot of attention to the details. I twas easy to pitch and happens all in one effort with the tarp coming up with the tent. That's a great feature if it's lightly raining out....everything that needs to stay dry, does. I love the various ways you can configure the openings to promote airflow or warmth, shady seating or fully fortified for extreme weather. If I had one thing to change it would be to make a waterproof window in the sleeping bay so you can see out of it in heavy weather and not get claustrophobic. Maybe that will be the next upgrade? Regardless, this is the tent I've always wanted but never knew it....so glad I took the plunge and invested in it! thank you Redverz!
I’ve been solo mostly, but wife retires this coming year :). I’m very much attached to my tent, don’t like changes in my life much but just maybe I shop with you again :). I never use the garage for my bikes, but it’s SO very useful otherwise . I’ve only experienced a couple camps where the tent is too big to fit. These are national parks . As a solo adventurer and a GSA sidecar enthusiast these days, I have near zero issues packing a few home comfy items most 2 wheelers find difficult. The tent has traveled a lot of years on my backseat before I converted to sidecar life. My recent Death Valley trip was on my vintage airhead I’ve owned 45 years. Redverz was packed on my seat , it’s still two wheels:). I gotta cut this saga but the tent has served me very well a long long time and I find it easy as any back pack tent Ive ever owned , to set up and take down. It’s big indeed but my time in this game, I can break camp in short order . Set up too.
I just wanted to let you know how well your tent performed this past weekend. I was on a winter campout with my son and we were expecting heavy rains Saturday. The forecast lived up to its hype but so did my Atacama tent. Sleeping compartment stayed dry except for some condensation, the garage space also was pretty dry, a little water coming under the sides but nothing that was bothersome. I have had this tent for several years now and it's definitely the best I have owned. Thanks again for a great product!
Bought for my hubby for christmas, everything we hoped it would be!
Since this is my second redverz tent I am a real fan of the quality of this tent and I like the upgrades from the series 2
I recently did a 3000 mile trip on a WR. which included 7 nights of camping. In the Atacama. Tent worked great. Best thing was pulling the bike in the tent and then zipping down the garage to unpack mosquito free.
This is one AWESOME tent. Loving it. Preforms perfectly.
