User Review: Ozark Trail 16' x 10.5' Family Dome Tent
Price Paid: $70
I had a Hillary tent that I had brought from Sears. The thing wore like iron and was amazingly waterproof. I use the thing on the beach at many many campsites it was a 6 foot dome style, just enough to stand up when you are putting your clothes on.
When the thing finally wore out I thought I would spring for something with a little bit more room. I got a 16' x 10.5' family Dome tent by Ozark Trail. The thing was fairly complex and that it was kind of mediocre, my main complaint is, unlike my Hillary it was absolutely not waterproof at all. It seemed like the rain came right through the top and formed a large puddles on the tent floor.
There was a procedure for pre-dampening it to somehow activate its waterproof properties, total BS. It is a big and roomy tent but overall you might want to shop around unless you are really strapped for bucks.
