Re: Any recommendations...four seasons tent

Well the only decision I have made is to get a three season tent this year. I'm going to look at Cabela's next month during the grand opening here in Wichita.

Re: Any recommendations...four seasons tent

I recently bought a Marmot Limestone 4P tent for our family excursions in the FJ Cruiser. I've used in in Colorado (summertime) and Missouri. I really like it- easy to set up, easy to clean, durable and spacious. I bought it at REI.

Re: Any recommendations...four seasons tent

I have a Mountain Hardware Hammerhead 3 tent Mountain Hardwear | Hammerhead 3

I really like it because it is flexable (3-4 season), large and light (for it's size). I've been through some pretty cold nights in it and always been comfortable and dry. I like winter camping so comfortable to me may be pretty cold to others.

Re: Any recommendations...four seasons tent

Look at Eureka tents, i bought one last year and it worked awesome for drive in camping. I am looking at a small light one for multi-day hikes.. Good quality tent IMO.

Re: Any recommendations...four seasons tent

I'll second the eureka tents they are decent and cheap enough for a 3 season tent. I gave up on tents years ago and only use hammocks now. Much more comfy for me.

I like my Springbar. It too is heavy, but built to last. I also like that you can stand up in it. Be warned, if the weather gets bad everyone will end up in your tent.

Thanks for the link, I ordered one of these (vagabond 4) last week and it arrived today. This is the best tent for the money I have ever seen ($467 delivered). Anyone who is serious about a good quality American made tent should definitely check these out. Thanks again.

Re: Any recommendations...four seasons tent

Update: well I pulled the trigger on this tent.

Cabela's Cabela's Cabela's Alaskan GuideŽ Geodesic Tent: questions, answers, how to, FAQs, tips, advice, answers, buying guide

This tent Alaskan guide 8 man (approx 13'x13') has pretty good reviews. I also upgraded and got the aluminum poles. The first trip out with this will be the FJ summit. Can't wait! Should have bought this last year instead of staying at Box Canyon, it would have already paid for its self. Well thanks everyone for you input.

I just bought a Springbar Vagabond 4 today here at the factory/store here in SLC


Got a deal on zip-on awning(not pictured), door mat (not pictured) steel stakes,and ground cloth made out of the same thick cotton xanvas material. This tent is extremely well made cotton canvas with a lifetime warranty. No rain fly necessary with this type of tent and a huge window on the other side of tent.

USA made 10ftX12ft. This will literally last a lifetime and is more than triple the size of an RTT for 1/6 of the price. You can stand up if you're 6'4 or less.

Definitely a car camping tent. This thing is heavy duty, probably 60 plus pounds with all of the components.
