Summary: I wish I had bought this years ago. No more flying insects in our food when camping, it's awesome. Tent is large enough to fit a picnic table over. It's well constructed, easy to put together and away. Outlets with a battery pack is a nice feature. Doors on both sides for easy entry and exit.
Summary: This tent, like most, uses fiberglass poles connected with "shock cord" (also known as elastic cord). Unfortunately, upon arrival, we opened the package and found that one of the shock cords was severed, rendering one pole set unusable. While Electronica Direct would provide a replacement after shipping this one back to them, that would not work for our time frame and upcoming vacation.
Summary: I really like this tent. The rain fly does not touch the tent so you can move around freely when it is rainig outside. I seamed sealed my tent and have had no issues of any water getting in. I wish that it had a 110 plug in but the 12v fan and air pump work great. It's nice and tall so standing up in it is no problem. Me and my 2 white boxers fit great in this tent.
Summary: Eureka tents are well built, and this one is no exception. The fiberglass poles are alot thicker than from a less expensive tent. This makes the tent sturdy even in heavy wind or gusts. You'll need a battery pack, a cord and a light that works in the tent and is sold by Eureka. The whole set up works well. We have the light with a fan. I love the little blue lights at every plug in point. This is great for when you are camping in very dark locations.
Summary: We have not yet utilized the screen house for camping purposes (the main reason for purchasing it), but we did a dry run yesterday and I note the following observations. A follow-up review, along with detailed photos, will be posted upon our return from an early June camping trip. SET-UP: As with all Eureka products I've owned, assembly is easy and fast. From start to finish, my partner and I had the screen house erected in less than 10 minutes.
Summary: By far one of the best investments I have ever made. Tent sets up easily and drops quickly. I have used it on four seperate camping occasions during spring, summer and fall and will be trying it out this coming winter. The wiring is not an issue and I suggest that you spring for the e-power pak. Great invention for us "old timers".
Summary: This is a nice tent. The power pack is a great option. I have 3 young daughters, and I can turn on an overhead lamp from a switch next to my sleeping bag. The blue glowing outlets are nice nite lights. This is labeled as a eight person tent, but five is more like it.
Summary: As far as I can tell the tent works great, and has been absolutely dry through two rainfalls (we did seam seal it). It's not quite an 8-person, but 8 people could fit with only sleeping bags, no mattresses or gear. So, if you're next to your car (or house) and don't mind sleeping on the ground, you'd be fine with 8! My only beef here is with the marketing. I researched quite a bit to find out if the power pak was optional.
