The MoTrail is a two-person version of the ProTrail. It offers 44% more floor space and noticeably more headroom than the ProTrail and easily fits two wide, long pads. At just over 1 lb / person, the MoTrail's fast set-up, bug and weather protection, and packability make it a great ultralight companion for weekenders and thruhikers alike. Going solo? Have a look at the ProTrail.
This shelter was designed to be used with trekking poles. For non-trekking pole users, we offer an optional 4 1/4 oz / 120 g pole for the front and 1.25-ounce pole for the rear.
Yes, it's very easy to remove the 16in aluminum top strut if you want to the stuff the rest of it. The ProTrail has no over internal structure and therefore can be "stuffed" into any compartment or pack. Alternately, it's even easier to just fold the fabric in half along the long axis and then on itself in thirds before rolling everything up around the strut.

You have several options for seam-sealing your Tarptent which are available for purchase in our webstore:

Use of a groundsheet depends on the conditions you expect to encounter and your style of camping. The sewn-in flooring is remarkably tough and does not usually require a separate groundsheet. We sell optional Tyvek groundsheets which are very tough and great for sleeping out or taking a break, but generally heavier than you need for floor protection on longer hikes, in most conditions. For use on very rocky ground and desert conditions where puncture wounds are possible, a groundsheet is recommended.
