TT for sale on 02/03/2010 21:01:36 MST Print View

I have a Rainshadow 2 that is looking for a good home. Ive used it overall 5 days, split into three trips. Has one 'scuff'in the base easily 'fixed' with a dab of silicon. I never bothered as I used a Tyvek floor as well underneath.

$200 delivered seems reasonable to me :)

If you or anyone is interested, I've got a barely used TT Contrail I might be looking to sell or trade for a MLD Duomid. Includes the substitute front pole and tyvek groundcloth. Would sell for $180 shipped.

I have a tarptent contrail that is not brand new, its actually fairly well used, but still in awesome shape. I'd let it go for 110 shipped.

Contrail/Rainbow. on 02/05/2010 09:21:15 MST Print View

I've been eyeing the Contrail... But I can't decide between that and the Rainbow. I've heard that the Contrail is more difficult to set up by your lonesome -- has anyone had a problem with that? And if anyone has one of these in good shape that they want to part with, let me know :)

Tarptent Contrail on 02/05/2010 10:51:15 MST Print View

I have a 2009 TT Contrail...with Tyvek Groundcloth...and with a custom carbon fiber "rear" pole (17" long, breaks down into two parts for packing). The rear pole is NOT needed for setup but offers a bit better pitching option for ventilation in good weather. It attaches via guy line to the center rear pullout.

It's been used about 6 nights. No rips, tears or stains. I've since "converted" to hammock usage so this is looking for a good home.

I'll sell the whole "kit" for $175...with shipping included.

FWIW, I find the Contrail quite easy to setup.

Tarptent Contrail $100 on 02/06/2010 00:36:26 MST Print View

I still have the tent for sale, very sorry for my account not being set up correctly yet, im a little lazy :D. I will ship the tent for 110 like I said, its in pretty good shape, I could get a couple photos to anyone who wants them. The tent isnt terribly difficult to set up... You stake down the two rear carbon poles, then throw your trekking pole in, then stake the front and re-adjust.

Robert, do you still have the contrail? I tried to send you an email but for some reason it didn't go through.
