Summary: just used my new eureka tetragon 1610 tent and loved it. Size wise it was an upgrade from my old tent that broke from strong winds on my last camping trip. my girlfriend and I looked at many tents before deciding on this one. It went up easier than expected and looks fantastic set up. the color on amazon is deceiving and looks way better in person. the three room option is cool but we just kept the rooms open and had one big room and it was awesome!
Summary: I was a little apprehensive about buying this tent due to the number of reviews about it having water leak issues. I have to say that those reviewers must have done something wrong somewhere along the line. My family put this tent to the test the very 1st time we used it. On the second night it rained a solid downpour for eight hours straight. Not a fun camping night, but we did stay Very Dry. Not a single drop of water entered the tent.
Summary: This is my second tent from Eureka. I've been using their 2xt for backpacking for several years. This tent held up great through a weekend of thunderstorms. We were under tornado conditions and my tent held tight while other were blowing around the campground. Very roomy. Easy to setup alone. Make sure you seal the seams good, like all tents.
Summary: great size for family camping, fit queen air mattress and 3 singles for the boys with some room left for gear. fiberglass poles I rate at just ok, small ones for rain fly broke after first use but they are way small so not overly supprised, looking for upgraded poles now and I'm sure it will be fine. Seal those seams, then seal them again when you notice a leak, ones you find it and seal it seams to be fine...
Summary: We bought this tent after reading many reviews. I am an eagle scout and have experienced many tents! The 1610 has Positives and negatives: Positive: 1) Easy & quick to assemble, takes 10 mins, due to 4 Poles! 2) Good inner space, height Negative 1) The fly-sheet poles on the entrance break on first use. I have seen other complaints of this, and unless Eureka changes the design, the tent is completely flawed.
Summary: I sealed the seams as soon as I received my tent a couple years ago and have to say it's great in most every way. I was camping and up comes a huge thunder storm. 30mph winds and even the rainfly was left unharmed. The poles did bend a bit, as they are flexible to begin with, but the tent kept me dry and out of the storm for the first 4 days of my camping trip.
Summary: easy to pitch, great space, with the option of making it into three rooms. we had queen-size mattresses at each end and still had plenty of space in the middle for whatever. and the bathtub floor worked fine, but ... i wish i'd sealed the seams on the sides of the tent, as the minute it started raining hard, there were leaks that produced little puddles at the bottoms of the major seams not well-covered by the fly (mostly the ends).
Summary: We recently bought this tent for a long weekend camping trip. I couldn't wait to get home and write a positive review for it! This tent is HUGE. My husband and I have 4 kids (all boys), and we all fit VERY comfortably. We even had plenty of room for our king size inflatable mattress, which we set up in the middle. There was still more then enough room on either side of the tent for the kids and all of our gear.
Amazon Description&Photos for this tent are Incorrect

Summary: You will NOT receive two hanging storage pockets as shown in the photos describing the Tetragon 1610 - While other tents in this series include these terribly convenient storage pockets, they DO NOT ship with the 1610. Amazon and Eureka both know the item description and photos are incorrect. Think about how nice it is to have your glasses and flashlight right at hand if ya gotta get up in the middle of the night - You will not have that convenience with this tent.
