User Review: Eureka! Timberline
Design: 3 season, A-frame
Ease of Setup: Easy. Five shock-corded rods.
Weight: 7 lbs
Price Paid: $100
I have had my Timberline for about 10 years. I think it is a good "first tent" for someone on a budget, but there is little need to upgrade. My friends also have owned these tents for several years. We think the quality is good. They hold up over time.
It is a two person tent. A little cozy for two adult men. I use mine as a one person tent. When my son was a lad, there was room for two of us; but, as he grew, I bought him his own tent.
I am 6 feet tall, and have room to sit up in this tent. There is room at the ends. It does not feel cramped.
It does well in the rain. The fly covers most of the sides of the tent. The ends are open, although the fly does extend out over the end about a foot. I have been out in a down pour with no leakage. You do need to make certain you have sealed the seams well.
Used by one person, it is pretty heavy at 7 pounds. I believe that the weight makes it best for a trip of two or three days. If you were going out on a trip where you need to carry five or six days food, the extra weight of this tent is definitely a nuisance. But, it would be okay if the weight were shared by two people.
