Yes, but it needs two end pole sections that hold up the rainfly on the ends. I have contacted Eureka about it but have not heard from them. You can probably oder a set or substitute other short poles.

If interested email me at cpatflgaz@yahoo.com

I can do paypal, mail money order,money gram or western union?

Arrived today, won't be able to put it up and test it out till the weekend due to work schedule and storms in the area.  But I pulled it out of the box, looks to be in good shape.  Going to show it to my son tonight.

Will I need to seam seal or perform any other kind of maintenance?  I've already received the two end pole sections from Campmor.

I think the only seam you might reseal is the one across the bottom center of the floor?

Set it up, looks great.  I haven't rain tested it yet, but with the exception of a few stains from normal wear and tear, and one very small hole in the floor, it is in great shape.  This is a great deal, I appreciate the tent.

I believe this is the Timberline 4 - at 6'7 it may be a two man tent for you, but at 5'9, it could hold about 3 1/2 of me.  Here are my kids up next to it:

From the inside, my son (who stands over 4 and a half feet):

If he stands in the middle, his head doesn't touch.  He loves the tent, can't wait to go camping now that he has his own.  Thanks again Gary.

Great, I am glad you figured out how to set it up. Glad your son likes it. Tell him it has been to Alaska, actually I bought it in Anchorage AK in 1978. I used it for about 6 weeks in Denali Nat Park the summer of 1978. I replaced it with a North Face VE24 that I used in Yosemite the winter/spring of 1980 and put the Timberline into storage. Found it there last year along with my old 35mm camera I bought in 1977 in Anchorage, a Minolta XG7. Had not seen either the tent or camera in more than 30 years.

The tent looks even better against the green trees and grass there. Thats why I bought it as to not stand out. I once actually lost it once after setting it up and going off on a day hike. When I returned to where I had sat it up in a dense forest in Denali I could not see it against the tree's at first.
