The Limited Edition ATACAMA™ Expedition Tent in Ivory
Beat the heat and take motorcycle camping to the next level with the Atacama Expedition Tent in Ivory. The clean, new color is minimal and calm for a truly elevated experience, and the light hue reflects the sun's rays to minimize heat in scorching weather. The new Ivory model is a limited edition release of the proven Redverz Atacama design.
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. Two opposing garage doors taper up from the bottom creating an entry you can ride any full-size touring adventure bike into, with panniers no less. Park up and there’s still loads of room to store gear and move about. The two main reasons to bring the bike inside are security and weather. It’s just practical to work on your bike or pack up gear out of the elements and rain. If security and theft are an issue, keeping the bike out of sight is a huge advantage. In reality, most customers use the extra space to simply hang out and lounge. Park up a few HELINOX camp chairs and a table and you’ve got a civilized place to sip coffee, host a happy hour and share a meal. Ask any Redverz customer and they will tell you that it's well worth the investment, especially as you wait out the first, torrential downpour all sheltered, comfy and dry.
Let’s get geeky about waterproofing for a moment. The Atacama outer fly sheet is fully waterproof at 4000mm hydrostatic head. When a storm comes through rest easy, at 4000mm hydrostatic head we far exceed the industry standard and are rated expedition grade.The tent floor and ground sheets are a whopping 10,000mm and set the gold standard for waterproofing and reliability. Read customer testimonials here to understand for yourself the value of a dry tent.
Poles are the most critical tent component. We source ours from the world’s top tent pole manufacturer and build them out of the finest aircraft grade aluminum available. We designed an intentional pre-bend into each pole, a fine contour that helps to reduce stress and ensure top performance. Over time the poles will settle into an even more pronounced arc, this is beneficial and intentional. The gear is expedition grade and built to last, so whatever your trip throws at you these poles are designed to bring you home.
The Atacama is the third generation of our original, patented motorcycle tent. We're proud to say our unique garage design was the first of its kind and birthed an entirely new tent genre back in 2008. As riders we design with the specific needs of motorcyclists in mind, and as innovators we set design trends that others simply follow.

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.
Just a great piece of kit. Sets up quick, it’s way bigger than you think. And could accommodate 2 dirt bikes or one full size. And you will still have room in the “garage” to spare. You don’t need the ground sheets, but I won’t lie they’re darn nice when the weathers nice and the bike is outside. Makes for a nice patio.
I purchased this tent in 2013 and logged 14000 kilometres traveling 9 weeks throughout Canada. Awesome tent. Never failed me and kept my Boulevard out of sight when going on hikes. I am still using it and it is a great now as it was when first purchased. My son likes it very much as well as it he’s served him on many “ ride for sight” events. Thanks REDVERS.
Took the tent recently for a quick weekend trip. The tent performed flawlessly! Heavy wind - not a problem. Easy setup and take down. Though only three poles and stakes, do yourself a favor and practice setting up in the backyard first. Should have bought this year's ago!
So far, I've been camping out of this tent for little over a month straight in Texas and I can't help but be impressed by it (despite already having an idea of how good it was from a friend's experience with his own Redverz tent). Setup is easy and can be accomplished solo without much effort in fair weather. It took me no more than a half hour for my initial try and more of that time was spent on familiarizing myself with how each step was supposed to work before I did it rather than on the build itself. With four anchor points, three color coordinated flex poles, and a prearranged guy line setup, the build really is suprisingly manageable for a tent of its size. Capacity is excellent; I'm able to cram my XR650L with panniers, mountain bike, and 65gal cooler in the vestibule area and still have just enough space to set out my camp chair and relax comfortably if weather outside is uncooperative. The sleep area is also roomy; I've got an oversized cot/sleeping gear, couple pieces of luggage (including gorilla box), and tools/camp gear in there with enough left over space to still move about/change clothes without much restriction (other than that I'm 6'5" and do still have to crouch a bit at the tent's tallest points; not really any fault in the tent's design so much as my own physical peculiarity...). Even more impressive than how much stuff I can stow away in this tent is its defiant ability to ride out whatever foul weather Texas throws at it. With only modest vegetation/cover to partially shield the tent from the west and north, my belongings and I have remained completely dry through two storm systems now (hail included), even as the tent's structural integrity is tested almost daily by batterings from a frequently windy environment (commonly sustained between 20-30 knots with gusts up in the 40+ range on rougher days). Granted, there may be a few additional provisions in place to aid its survival in such conditions (two 4x6 tarp covers up top for hail resistance and additional guy lines/larger anchoring stakes for stability) but, all the same, when a tent this size/shape can repeatedly shrug off such abuse (at broadside angles, even!) and remain standing just as intended, the durability more than speaks for itself as far as I'm concerned (still can't quite figure out how I haven't bent a pole yet...). One side note; since this tent's entire outer structure is rain fly material, the interior is a literal green house. If the sun is out and the the tent isn't opened up and getting some breeze, it gets toasty (nice on cold days; less than tolerable on days 70-80*F or warmer). In exchange for the supurb wet weather defence this tent provides though, I'd say its more than a fair tradeoff. Final conclusion: this tent is worth every penny I paid for it and I recommend it hands down to anybody in the market for a spaceous, manaeable, and thoroughly dependable tent; hardcore motorcycle adventurer or not.
