Eureka! Copper Canyon 10
Design: three-season cabin style
Ease of Setup: easy for two
Weight: 23 lbs
Price Paid: $130--$156 shipped
Spent two nights in this 10x10 cabin style tent so far to test it for the annual August trip to Bristol, TN, for race week. Purchased it as a replacement for a Coleman 10x10 Sundome tent that my brother and I have used for the past 6 years. Plenty of ventilation with large windows. Roomy for three adults using 40 inch wide "twin" air mattresses. Could fit 4 persons but it would be tight and gear and stuff would need to stay in the SUV. Two adults and two children would also work ok if you made the kids sleep on a double or queen mattress or if you used two queen mattresses. If wanting to sleep 4 or more persons I'd get the larger 1312 Copper Canyon model.
Price Paid: $220
OK, I'm in love. I bought it in early July and we've only used it once, but that once was 5 days of intermittent super heavy rain and high wind. Elevation was only 6300 feet, but we remained snug and dry, not a single drop penetrated.
Setup? Well I'm not exactly Wonder Woman - matter of fact we're both a couple of old geezers, but it took us about 20 minutes to set up and even less to take down. I'm pretty sure if we needed to we could halve that time.
Its cabin design is luxuriously roomy (our last was a dome style tent - LOVE being able to walk upright again!) and it easily accommodated our queen-sized cot/air mattress setup with two night tables and room for gear, and even our camp chairs during downpours.
We're looking at popup campers for the day when we can no longer manage car camping due to physical limitations, but this tent may well postpone that awful event!
Design: 3 season, free standing cabin
Ease of Setup: definately at least a 2 person set up
Price Paid: $159
Nice and roomy being a cabin tent. Experienced some problems that I believe are design issues and a few that are not. I and two other guys experienced some rough, windy, rainy weather where the tent held up great but took a lot of rain inside from the blowing wind even after dropping the fly poles so that the fly would hug the top of the tent. The way the screened windows are designed do not allow for a total seal in the walls of the tent. The window screen flaps zipper up on left and right sides but only have a two hook fastener at the top which allowed for the wind to blow rain and wind through the top part of the window that doesn't have the zipper even though the flap is fastened.
The fly does not come down low enough even after being dropped on the tent to cover the tops of the windows enough to keep the wind and rain out. The directions tell you to stake the bottom of the tent after putting things together but this creates a problem trying to open and close the zipper door. I think the directions need to state that the tautness of the side of the tent where the door is, needs to be relaxed so to be able to open and close the zippered screen door. Otherwise the door zipper binds. The tent is definitely a two person set up.
We also experienced a lot of moisture inside on the air mattresses during the night even after the tent had been closed up after several sunny days where there wasn't rain or left over moisture from rain. Don't know why we had this problem.
So as a 3 season tent, I don't know about that one. Would I buy another or recommend it for purchase in the present configuration, NO. If Eureka was to correct the simple issues with making the fly a little lower in covering the top of the tent and completely contain the closing of the window flaps with zippers, Yes, I would buy and recommend this tent, otherwise, it's a "fair weather tent". Sleeps 3 big guys with single bed size air mattresses and one more if mattresses aren't used.

This cabin style tent provides much more useable interior volume than a typical dome style tent can, because its straight walls offer more head room and allow campers to push cots and gear closer to the walls and out of the way.
