NorthPole Vista Villa

rated 2.0 of 5 stars

We're not hard-core campers, so we haven't run this thru' the mill.... but, we've used it 6+ times and haven't had any of it break. Pretty easy to put up - actually lost the instructions a while ago, and can still put it up without the instructions.

I recently called NorthPole corporate to get replacement instructions - they are working at putting them online, but they're not there yet. Customer Service picked up on the first ring - either have few phone calls, or a million customer service reps! - no phone tree to select to get through, just gave them a model number and the instructions were emailed straight out (can also get via fax or mail). Great service, good tent - and got a great deal at Costco!

Definitely worth what we paid.

Same experience as above. Fortunately it was at the end of a 5 day camping trip (first time I used the tent). When knocking the tent down, broke one of the large poles. Again, not worth the money!

Price Paid: $99.99

The tent worked well on our first trip, but unfortunately two of the poles broke while taking the tent down. Not worth the money.

Design: family dome
Sleeps: 6+
Ease of Setup: fairly simple

Nice size, but a pole broke when it got windy. Should have fiberglass poles instead of metal.

Price Paid: $99

Not very waterproof, strained seam, zippers aren't too durable, directions on assembly not too clear.
Will return to store.
