User Review: Eureka! Timberline
Design: 3 season
Ease of Setup: Easy for two, with a little experience one can set up with no problem
Weight: 7 lbs
Price Paid: $100
Have had the tent since 1979 and think it's great. Have camped and hiked through Alaska with it twice, plus hiked and camped with the Scouts all over California. Been in the rain and snow and it holds up as any tent should. For a 3 season tent it is an excellent first tent for two. Little heavy hiking for 1 person but easy to split up the weight between two.
My son and I used it through his scouting years but it is a bit tight for two adults. I blew a pole out after a windstorm in Alaska, repaired with duct tape and tent pole. When I returned Eureka replaced all poles, no questions asked. Excellent folks to deal with.
My only complaint with the tent is that it smells. The seam sealent used 20 years ago has an aged smell of barf and I must set it up in the sun for a day before I can take it out. After 20+ years though I don't think Eureka has a responsibility there.
Liked it so much I bought the 4 person version for car camping. Like Eureka so much I bought the 1 person Zypher for single use.
