Interesting in the way the Eurekas look similar to a Hilleberg Kaitum and Nallo.

I didnt know that Eureka made Euro style tents. Coleman does too. Much heavier rainflys and floors

You will also see some different models on Eureka's Canadian website which you can mail order into the US relatively easily.

Interesting. The Big Horn 2 SUL is almost identical to the Hille Nallo 2GT. Only heavier, and a little bit less expensive.

What you will find is that the Eureka tents will look the same, that is they copy the designs, but the materials and construction quality is not as good.  By not as good I do not mean bad or cheap, just not as good.  I've nothing against Eureka tents, my favorite canoe camping tent remains a Eureka Alpine Meadows and all my car camping tents are made by Eureka.  However, if you set up my Eureka and set up my Moss the quality difference is obvious and I suspect the same would be true of most high end tents.  For most usage the Eureka will suit the user just fine.

Eurekas aren't that bad. I still say the Mountain Pass XTE should be a 3.5 season tent. Heavy, but solid. 

I sold the 2 I had(2 & 3xte) because I didn't use them enough to justify owning them. I do have an admiration for that model though.
