Selling my TNF VE 25 dome tent. 4 season, spacious for 2, sleeps 3. Used car camping 3 or 4 times. It's about 4 years old and I am the original owner. The condition of the tent is as if just returning from the store with it. What I mean is it would be difficult to distinguish it from a brand new tent. Except for the white panels, its essentially the same tent. Same description, same spec's and has the NF life time guarantee. Love the tent but I'm offering it for sale because it's just not being used. If very interested, I'll set it up and send photo's. Current price is $619.00. Asking $350.00 inclusive of shipping.
A former, potential buyer asked this question: "How do you find the tent breathes in warm weather? I'd like the capability of 3 season use as well-although definitely not a deciding factor".
My Reply: The interior canopy is an uncoated, breathable ripstop nylon that allows body moisture to pass into the space between canopy and fly where it can be dissipated by air flow. Besides the breathability of the canopy, there are 2 zippered vents at the center top with mesh that can be opened or closed depending upon conditions. They are aligned with companion vents built into the outer rain fly which also can be battened down. The front entrance has a full mesh bug screen for warmer weather coupled with a full nylon zippered door. Each has 3 zipper pulls for setting the right size opening for ventilation. The rear entrance also has a screened panel but it is a bit smaller. So, with the front and rear door adjustable opening's and the top ceiling vents, there is good cross ventilation and air flow to the rounded peak. The original VE-25 didn't have the ceiling vents. Hope this helps.
