NorthPole Ozark Trail
Design: 14' x 10' three room cottage cabin
Ease of Setup: color coded for ease, but lots of poles to put together
Price Paid: $140
We purchased this tent and loved it when we first set it up; however, we only used it 2 times last summer and the first time we used it this spring, it was as if the tent had shrunk and the door was very, very tight to zip up. We even tried taking the stakes out to release the tension, but it didn't work and the zipper ended up breaking. We purchased it at Wal-Mart and because it was over 90-days old, they refused to even give us a store credit (and we had our receipt).
NorthPole's warranty on their tents is only for 6 months, so if you buy a tent at the end of tent season, you're SOL if something goes wrong with it next season!
PURCHASE A CABELA'S BRAND TENT - THEY WILL WARRANTY THEIR NAME BRAND PRODUCTS FOR A FEW YEARS, AND SO LONG AS YOU KEEP YOUR RECEIPT, YOU CAN EVEN GET YOUR MONEY BACK - NO QUESTIONS ASKED!!!
Ease of Setup: fair
Weight: when wet is heavy
Price Paid: $80
We have had no trouble with our dome tent even after giving it to our daughter...but alas a pole has broken and I do not like the sound of the last review. I will try to get replacement poles Monday and see what happens. ty
Design: Room Dome Tent
One of the elastic cords broke while I was taking down this tent for the first time out. It doesn't seem that I can get the replacement pole even though I have sent in a form and a letter. The internet site doesn't seem to be much help either. 800 numbers useless, don't work.
Price Paid: this was a gift
Wind storm ripped cover apart. I want to replace tent.
