Willie-O BS: easily erected tents - recommendations? (65* d) RE: BS: easily erected tents - recommendations? 22 Jun 09

No use to Anne, but if you're in North America and looking for a fast-erecting, durable, dry, weatherproof tent, SCREW DOME TENTS! You want one that's shaped like a couple of sleeping people. This thread inspired me to look up the maker of my beloved Eureka Timberline and to my great pleasure, found they still make them. BARGAIN price $140 US, $50 more for one with a vestibule. I lived in mine for a couple of summers. Time elapsed to put it up: about three minutes once you get the hang. It's completely freestanding except for a couple of pegs to pull the sides of the fly out. So you can put it together and then worry about the exact location. Waterproof? Hell yeah. Bug proof? I used it timber cruising in Northern Ontario.

When you want to "sweep" the tent, you pick it up and empty the dirt out the end!

I'm tempted to buy a new one. If I had any serious camping plans this summer, I definitely would.   

Doesn't seem like they have dealers in Canada anymore--pity.
