User Review: Northwest Territory Vacation Home 10-Person Tent 14' x 14'
Design: three room tent (screen porch)
Ease of Setup: moderate
Price Paid: $159.99
Note of caution: apply seam sealer to the fly before using the tent for the first time! That said, except for small drips during three ferocious thunderstorms, the tent passed its inaugural camping trip with flying colors. Very roomy, nice center height of 92", and good ventilation even with all the windows zipped. The remote light was 'fun' but not very useful.
DO read ALL the instructions through carefully and follow them to the letter. The first time we set the tent up, it took about 45 minutes (with two adults) but most of that time seemed to be undoing what we shouldn't have done in the first place! I would not recommend this tent to those who don't follow directions (both set-up and take-down) but I would definitely recommend it to large families (says it sleeps 10; I think maybe eight would be more comfortable and six easily) or people who do car camping. Wouldn't want to lug this 50 pound beauty up a hill or through the woods! And joy of joys, after take-down, ALL the pieces fit nicely back into the wheeled carrier without having to sit on the bag to zip it.
All in all, very nice tent for the money and we've had no problems with it. We even had several other campers and the park ranger ask where we got it and they were all very surprised at the relatively low price.
