Colman Tent - Do I love it?


Last night in only ten minutes my soon to be six year old daughter and I put up the new tent in our living room. 

Set up in our living room, looking into front of tent

Screened 4-person Evanston Tent
  • I love the color
  • I love the size
  • I love the screened second space
  • I love the height
  • I love the open mesh to see the stars
  • I love this tent
  • I love the price
After looking online at all the tents in it's class it appears that the price of under $60 is a crazy good deal.



This tent will be perfect for light camping, short trips and two person + dog camping.

Looking overhead, saggy because no steaks, notice the TP already inside, side flaps zip up

I purchased this tent at this Cosco for $56. They do not show it online however. Here are few other places I found it.




Oh and theirs nothing wrong with it. It's absolutely fabulous!

Colman Tent FOUND THE ONE FOR ME

On my visit to the Bay Area (Northern Calif) I stopped into Costco. Their she was, hanging up in isle three..................... a four person tent with screened porch for $56. Fits a queen bed plus extra space and a small area screened in for cloths and "The Dog!"
I can't wait to put it up in the house to try it out. This picture was the best I could find for now. 
Costco online isn't showing the tent I bought. But in looking around the price is amazing or something is wrong with it, I'll let you know. It says 15min. to put together..........hummmm?

Shopping For A New Tent

We have two tents. One 5 person dome ..... EASY to put together, sleeps two on a queen airbed with squeezed in dog. Perfect for my daughter and I on a short trip.


A Colman Weather Master (shown above) that is awesome for longer trips and though it takes longer to install after a week of camping it's worth it. A must have for my 6'3" husband who doesn't want to be sleeping with the dog. Size 17'x9'

Our dog Bravo the Labradoodle
 
Now I am shopping for an easy up tent with space for three of us and the dog for short trips.
