I am wondering if there is anyone on here who has had a Quasar previously and has subsequently bought a Trisar 2D tent? I really liked my Quasar. The Trisar 2D at first glance looks very similar. Just wondering if I am likely to be disappointed if I spend half the cost of a Quasar to buy the Trisar 2D? How do they compare? Do you think the Trisar will fall apart more quickly, and does everything feel inferior?
I'm in exactly this position - I had an exceedingly ancient Quasar, then a MH Trango 3.1 and now have the Trisar 2D. The Trisar is perfectly solid and actually more livable-in than the Quasar or Trango as its a bit higher in the middle.
In terms of materials, I have no worries about it standing up to hefty storms - the poles are fine and flysheet is still feeling solid after three or four years.
My only gripe with the tent is the multiple tie-back options on the flysheet doors as they're pointless and just get caught in the zip, and the window with a cover flap in the doors also feels a bit unnecessary. The design may have been updated on latest models.
Considering the price is about a third of a new Quasar, it felt like a good punt which has paid off without any worries.
