Summary

Bought this tent/cabin a couple of years ago — 14 by 14 with utility room. Nice tent but getting parts for is impossible. I need a frame for it. The other one was damaged in a storm.

Pros

  • Lots of room

Cons

  • Can't get parts for it

It's a real nice cabin, plenty of room, didn't leak, simple to put up, 3 kids room for them and a room for me and the wife. Just wish I could get a frame for it, cost quite a bit.

I bought this tent at K-Mart to take on a family outing.

I bought this tent at K-Mart to take on a family outing. I was very impressed by the way it looked and the size plus it had that neat screened in area where you could easily sit during rains. I took it home and inventoried the parts in the backyard (always doing this before heading to the woods!)...well several pieces were broke and two were misssing...the inventory sheet had a big note saying...DO NOT RETURN THIS TO THE RETAIL STORE...CALL US...

So I did just that...explained my situation...they wanted me to crawl in the tent and and find a serial # on a tag...I tried but to no avail...mind you..I can't set the tent up because pieces are missing...after 5 minutes of doing this I asked myself WHY AM I DOING THIS?...the first call was friendly...the second call was firm...and the third call was extremely neutral...I felt I was getting nowhere and finally took the tent back to K_Mart for a refund...

I would NEVER buy this brand name again. Their customer service department was a waste of time...I eventually ended up at Dick's Sporting Goods and bought a nice Eureka...everything was there and it set up easily...hope this helps! This is the first review I have written for any product but I didn't want someone else getting ripped off like I felt I did.

I purchased this tent 2 years ago, only using it 3 times. The first time we set it up, the rain sheet didn't fit, it was too small by 1 1/2 inches so we had to tie it. Other than that we had a great weekend.

The second time however, it rained and the rain cover leaked and it pooled water over the door area, we had the tension cords on as well- that didn't stop the pooling of water. The windows leaked as well as the door, some of the seams leaked too. A friend suggested that I put that "camp dry" on it. She had to do it to one of her tents that she bought. So I treated it with camp dry.

Used the tent a third time and again it leaked, even worse this time. After camping the third time and got it home, re-set up the tent to make sure it dried out good. A nasty thunderstorm came up and ripped it out of the ground...twisted the frame and ripped up the tent..
will not be buying any tents by Northwest Territory again.
I don't like to waste 200+ dollars on something that isn't going to last.

I bought this tent and 2005 Memorial Day weekend I spent four days and three nights in it. I had no problems at all and I am trying to find another one to purchase. It is the only tent I have found with a shower already attached. Please contact me because I need another one. I'll be using it four more times this summer and I need an extra.

The only thing I would change is to make shower attachment zip to main tent on the floor level. So you can keep the tent side open without allowing any animals or reptiles in between the tent door and shower doors.

I love this tent! I camped at Ginne Springs and had many requests on where I got it.

I purchased this tent about two years ago and LOVE IT!!. There are five in my family and we have plenty of room. I put two queen size air mattress and one twin size air mattress in this tent and still have room to move in it. I love the screen room that it has.

I have had no problems with leaks at all never put any sealant on it. I did have one of the poles that run lenght ways break over the weekend, but it was left unattended at a camp for over four days. I need information about ordering the pole. Does anyone have the information for Northwest Territory?

I also thought this was an awesome tent. Like others after a bad rainstorm, even with a tarp strapped in the trees to help protect the tent, it proved to be a very unstable tent. A little rain and a light windstorm broke up poles and tent.

I was very unimpressed with the quality of this tent. Within three days the zippers broke, a hole formed in the bottom, the tent teated, etc. I will not buy any products from this company.

This tent was nice when I first got it, but it could not hold up to a little rain and it is falling apart after less than a year.
