User Review: Northwest Territory Olympic Cottage Deluxe Cabin Tent
Design: Olympic Cottage
Ease of Setup: Slightly Difficult
Price Paid: 229.00
My boyfriend and I like to go camping with his family in the summer and so we've been in the market for a tent lately. My boyfriend is 6'2" so we've always hated having so little room: when he lays down he's too long, when he stands up, he's too tall. So when we walked in to the local KMart and saw this, we got it. We had some extra money, plus his birthday was this weekend. It took us about an hour to put it up because, as previous reviews noted, the instructions were not that helpful. But that was okay, but while we were setting up, there were no stakes. The manufacturer only provided the structure poles. So this morning (6/15/10) we were sleeping and a windstorm kicked up. It lifted the right side up and moved it, and when we were getting out to take it down, I walked away to use the restroom and when I came back, my boyfriend said that there was a snapping sound, and the front left side was not being supported. When we got the rain-fly off, I noticed that one of the corner plastic pieces had completely snapped, leaving no room for it to be repaired manually.
This tent was great for our friends that we had over, and it was great to stay in, but they didn't consider that the tent would need to support it's own weight. It makes me sad that we have to take it back, and also, that I may just get a smaller one. This tent is beautiful, and it's gigantic. I don't want to get another one, but I don't want to have to keep taking it back.
