User Review: Eureka! Headquarters
Design: Modified freestanding dome
Ease of Setup: extremely simple setup
Weight: about 35 lbs
Price Paid: $200
I bought this tent on clearance... for about half of what it retails for. I knew I was getting an incredible bargain.I have had previous experience with Eureka! as well as many other brands of tents. At the time I was downsizing from a huge tent that was too much for just my son and I.
The Headquarters is a rectangular tent with 4 pre-bent aluminum poles that fit into a central hub on the tent apex. My son (11) and I can set it up from start to finish in under 10 min including the stakes and rain fly. It is a very stable and strong tent... and the materials are very high quality.
It has tremendous headroom... I am 6'5" and have no problem standing up in it. We have had 2 extra large cots plus a regular one and our 2 100 lb. dogs in the tent and still had room to change and store our belongings.
We have used it for 2 yrs, and it has weathered high winds, torrential rains and 20 degree weather. It has never leaked a drop of water. The zippers are very high quality and do not stick or catch at all like our previous tent did.
This tent lives up to the Eureka! name and I would buy it again without hesitation.
