Rated 5 out of 5 by hwy231 Excellent tent
This is a traditional tent that is fairly lightweight and has good poles. Use seam sealer on all seems and a foot print tarp below floor. Just a good tent with a good design and has been around for decades. Use common sense and good practice and the unit will last for years/

Rated 5 out of 5 by Olesoldier Best 2-person tent
My first civilian tent used for motorcycle camping. Used this in Canada, most of the US, Europe, Scandinavia, etc. Bikes restrict what you can haul, but this tent was great! Ties down well on a motorcycle and even helps out as a back support for rear seat rider. Dry, wind proof, stood up to some pretty tough conditions, and the material & seams held up great! Never had a collapse or wet night despite some VERY wet conditions and strong winds. Bought one in 1975 in Germany (replaced it in 1981 with a North Face dome). Worked great camping alone or as a couple. Only stopped using it for more room needed for my wife's gear and a baby. I would still use it today, but bikes and tents are gone forever. Assuming quality is the same, I recommend this tent to anyone needing a small, light tent one person can erect easily. Costs about twice what it did in 1975, but that's not bad!

Rated 4 out of 5 by J2d2 Great for youngsters
My 5th grade son is a new Boy Scout. I read him the instructions to set it up the first time and then took it down. He put it up the second time without the intructions, by himself with only a couple of corrections or hints.. Haven't tried it outside yet but my son loves it! "I can set it up by myself!"

Rated 4 out of 5 by EstesParkHunter great all around tent
my boy scout troop has a collection of about 15 of these tents, they've been to the boundary waters of northern Minnesota, rocky mountain national park and the black hills and have never let us down. they do however like all tents will leak small amounts of water during torrential downpours but im not afraid to take this tent anywhere.

exactly where is the doorway on this tent. It mentions twin tract side? I plan to set this tent up and then place it in the bed of my F150 truck. So I need a doorway on the long dimension,where the screen mesh is located.
thier is only one door and it is on one of the a framed ends so if you but this tent up to a vehicle with the door facing the vehicle thats your ONLY way in and out i wouldn't recomend this setup as it just doesn't work but they do make tents that are designed to attach to a vehicle that's probaly your best bet.
eureka only makes a vestibule that attaches to the rain fly but your gonna need a ground cloth with this tent anyways as it will wick moisture right out of the ground if weight is a problem use a piece of tyvec house wrap its water proof but still breathes
