I think I have finally narrowed my new tent selection to the Timberlte 2 and am pretty close to calling Campmor.

Anyone have any really negative feed back about this model?

Campmor is selling it for $129.99 + $8.00 shipping.

Anyone know of a better price?

high recommendations

I have the 3XT, and it is by far the best tent I have ever used. Realized I forgot the poles on one trip last year after driving for 20 hours, and it was still roomy enough for 2 rigged up with rope and duct tape.

I love this tent... quality & durability is great.

Cheers!

Thanks for the reply! I ordered the Timberlite 2 yesterday......

found out the tent was discontinued last year. No more Timberlites are being made. Eureka replaced the Timberlite with the 4 season Alpenlite.

Thought I would get the tent while Campmor still had them in stock. Once their gone they are gone!

yeah... it's too bad they discontinued the Timberlite. A buddy of mine has the Alpenlite, and its pretty similar - just the extra poles and higher column rating. I question the validity of the 4 season rating on it though.

Enjoy your new tent!

One question for ya solaceseeker......

where the fly attaches to the tent body along the center of the sides....what do you use to put the stake thru,
the metal ring or the cloth strap?

Does the metal ring attach to the clip? Didn't see any mention of the proper hook up there in the instruction sheet.

I put the stake through the metal ring, but I have found that I have to tie the cloth strap to itself in a big knot or it will loosen in really windy conditions, as the strap doesn't provide enough friction to stay in the buckle effectively.

Yeah, the instruction sheet is pretty useless. I attach the clip to the thin flat cord loop, not the metal ring. This arrangement works better than using the ring-clip, and the loop/strap to stake it out.

Clear as mud?

Cheers!
