I am looking for older Moss Tents Catalogs that you might have 80's or 90's before they were bought out by MSR. I am researching designs and models. 

Let me know I can buy or trade gear.

Thanks

Colo_Hiker, good luck with that. The last Moss catalogs on eBay  12-21-2009, sold for $50.99(1986), and $46.99(1990).

Tried Craigslist, or bookfinder.com?

Guess I have been out of the loop in regards to the value of Moss catalogues--I have one from 1981 that was in the 1980 Moss Trillium tent that I picked up a while back--the tent came with the original Moss cardboard box, don't tell me that has value as well!

Karmantra, sad but true. The original box increases the sales price of toys, camps stoves, and tents as well. Oops, I got a little redundant, stoves and tents could be considered toys for adults. I'm happy to hear that you found a Trillium. The only tent I've been able to check off my wish list is a Moss Silicone Expedition Deltoid.

The original catalogs had the floor dimensions and more spec details if I remember right. Surely there are some still around. Not sure the catalogs are worth $50 though.
