User Review: Northwest Territory Family Cabin 8-Person Tent 14' x 14'
Ease of Setup: very difficult
Price Paid: $179.99
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.
