Octopus Twin Canvas Tent

 

 

Octopus is produced since 2016 and since 2019 we also offer the Octopus Twin. The Twin enables a full inside width of 209 cm, so 2 motorcycles can be parked next together, even including saddle-bags and handle-bar protectors like on a BMW GS. There is no need to offset the 2 bikes in length direction, no need to interlock them, no risk to scratch them. Each bike can be taken in and out independently.

The Octopus Twin is right now only available in combination with the lowering bed trailers WOM XT from Stema. Most preferred and most popular model is the braked WOM XT 1300 kg.

Octopus is a patented airfoil shaped tent. The round front does not only look attractive, it also saves your gasoline. Within 30 seconds you can open the rear wall and around 2/3rd of the roof. Therefore the rubber bands are disconnected and the foil is rolled up with a crank integrated into the rear wall. The rear part of the roof is then free of cross beams which allows you to sit on the motor cycle while driving in, and the tent is just as high as needed for the highest part of the bike, the visor. You can also open the tent at the front corners to tie down the bike at the front. The tent can be mounted directly on a loading bed as well as on top of the rim of side-walls. The ideal application is however the usage with lowering bed trailers (with kneeling device). With Octopus and a permanently lowered trailer this can be your parking or garage all year round.

We also offer an optional motorcycle lashing set. This consists out of 2 front wheel chocks with a quick-release lock. Those can be mounted right and left with 100 cm center-to-center distance (suitable for 2 BMW R1200GS, see pictures). Or you position one front wheel chock in the middle. It also comes with multiple extra lashing points suitable for all 3 possible motorcycle positions. 

You can bring your Stema WOM XT to us for mounting the Octopus tent. Or you purchase the Stema trailer at a Stema trailer near us (company Eiler in Maulbronn). We then pick up the trailer there. Or check with us. We often have a new Stema WOM here as well.  Mounting the canvas tent takes around 5 to 6 hours.

It is important that you have the right Stema trailer. It needs to be the Stema WOM XT with 251x153 cm surface . This is typically in either 1300kg or 1500 kg. We recommend that you get it right away with 100 kmh allowance and plate for the 100kmh sticker. 

The tent is currently usually available in dark anthracite. Other colors and digital print on request. 

Due to the width of the tent a standard narrow car (not SUV or camper) should have a rear view mirror extension like for a camping trailer.
