User Review: Eureka! Tetragon 9
Design: 3 season
Ease of Setup: very easy, one person
Price Paid: $100
After my surprisingly, long lasting, non-leaking no brand tent finally gave up I went shopping for a car camping tent I can set up myself. I ended up with this one after reading some reviews of Eureka tents and talking to a friend who worked in a sports store, who recommended the brand.
The tent has been great. We have had some floor leaks, but I'm lazy and haven't sealed the seams. It's been through a high wind thunderstorm (damp floor, no wall or window leaks, stayed put) and several beach camping trips (including steady winds that pushed it almost flat to the ground, nothing broke or ripped). I can put it up myself (I'm 5'3"), which is really nice. We can fit 2 adults, a double sized air mattress and a long weekend's worth of gear inside. I picked up the proper size groundcloth and 12" metal stakes to replace the ones it came it.
On the downside, it can get hot inside if you have it zipped up, and when you're using the gear loft you lose a bit of height.
Also, I picked up a last-year's model, so the price was great for this kind of tent. If I was going to get another car camping tent I'd probably go for the 1210 for the extra room.
