New tent

I just purchased a new Bike-Packing Tent, Taron 2 from Eureka. My old Eureka lasted more than 14 years but has become a bit brittle from UV damage. I love the full rain-fly and large vestibule on this model. It allows me to keep panniers and bags outside the tent, but protected. It's not the smallest or lightest but at $135 it offers great comfort and features which is worth the extra pound after a long day on the road.
I can't wait for my next trip.

This looks like a great tent! What's the floor space like in there?

Hi Chrissy,
The floor space is 7'4" x 4'2" and the vestibule is 17sf. My last Eureka Back country 2 is more than 14 yrs old and has been on about 2 dozen bike tours. I like the large vestibule something my other tent didn't have.
