Might work if you had a trailer, but if you had to purchase one, you would be defeating the cost savings. Quick to set up, over a 60 day trip you might save some time. I like the following: Footprint, Plenty of room for two. 52 inches is good sit up height. Three windows and the door for ventilation and the ability to close or screen the windows. The price is right for the budget minded. I would check the material out. Contact Camp Mor in NJ. & ask their repair department what they think. Concerns: The opening mechanism for reliability, the tent for overall durability for a cross country trip, and portability. If I understand the packed dimensions correctly, having a 42" tent hanging off the back of a bike rack may not be practical.
