User Review: Ozark Trail 20' x 14' 10-Person Family Dome Tent
Design: Actual floor space, 18' 4",
Ease of Setup: easy for a grown male couple
Price Paid: $220 CDN
This rated 20' x 14' family tent is not one that I would recommend to anyone; especially as a family tent. Firstly, even though I took every precaution possible to seal each and every seam in the tent, it still leaked during two medium rains.
The zippers are about as cheap as they could possibly be. The plastic zippers on this tent are a nightmare of cheapness. The first half dozen times we used the tent the front door zipper constantly jammed on the door's overlap. Eventually the front door zipper failed and would not join the two sides, then the end zipper failed, all on the same camping trip.
The light tarp style floor does not hold up at all. If the tent is spread on a lightly rough surface, holes appear in the flooring within a few hours: hence, leakage. This tent definitely requires an underlay of some sort.
We have used the tent six times and to this point, two zippers are damaged beyond repair; three patches glued to the floor and the corner joints are separating.
For a tent of this size to work, the wall material needs to be heavier and the flooring needs to be much heavier material. Also, this size of tent requires a metal or a similar zipper material.
This is not a recommended tent by any means.
