For a sub-$200 tent, this tent is very good. It's easy to set up and looks great. It is a simple design that is spacious and comfortable for 3-4 people. It did great in rainy weather. I definitely recommend this tent for for those looking for a car camping tent around this size and who want to spend less than $200.

Pros

  • The single pole design is simple and quick to set up
  • There is good airflow with the large screens on the doors and the two side windows; the rear vent is a nice touch
  • It has a great look and it well made
  • It actually fits in the bag it came in

Cons

  • The top peak vents don't really work
  • There was a slight leak by the tag (I'll use some seam-sealer to fix this for the future)
  • Since it isn't freestanding, there are a lot of guy lines that are easy to trip over in the dark

I've owned a bunch of tents throughout the years, but mostly they were small backpacking size tents. We have use a large 8-person Cabela's tent for the past nine years for car camping, but it is time-consuming to set up, so we thought the Wenzel Ivanhoe 6 would be a nice complement tent for us.

The Ivanhoe is part of Wenzel's "Tribute" collection, with a retro-inspired design. The Ivanhoe reminds me of my parents' old canvas tent. The Ivanhoe is a single-walled house-shaped tent made of weather-treated polyester and taped seams. It held up really well in the rainy weather we had camping and there was just one small area that the seam tape failed: a"troubleshooting" tag that hangs down inside the tent.

For a sub-$200 tent, this tent is awesome. It's easy to set up and looks great. It is a simple design that is spacious and comfortable for 3-4 people. It did great in rainy weather. I definitely recommend this tent for for those looking for a car camping tent around this size and want to spend less than $200.
