User Review: Eureka! Sunrise 11
Design: 3 season Dome
Ease of Setup: Easy, just follow the directions. As with "all" shock corded poles make sure they're completely inserted.
Weight: About 20 lbs
Price Paid: $239.95
I'm only giving it a 4.5 because I only had it out once for a three day trip. I'm familiar with domes as I have 2 LL Beans which are great but I wanted more space and HEAD ROOM which the 11 has an abundance of--121 sf with a 7 ft center.
We barely had time to glance at the directions (which "are" provided and in simple ENGLISH) as we were racing a fast approaching thunderstorm. With 2 of us we had it up in 15 minutes right as the skies opened up. More like a monsoon with hail, 40 mph winds---it was 2:00pm & looked like midnight. Even with the windows down about 18 inches (we love watching storms) the large overhanging rainfly, Storm King is right, we didn't get even a drop of water in there. What the fly didn't get the big bathtub rolled away. The storm lasted into the next day and still not a drop.
If this doesn't sell you there's some neat storage compartments, loops for lights and my favorite parts are the nice strong tight zippers and the taped seams.
Considering the size, quality and "tested" durability, at this price you cannot beat it!
**Poles separate rather easily--great for take down but make darn sure they're secure "BEFORE" bending.
