Thank you to John for taking my call and helping answer all the questions we had before our purchase. We camped up in northern Maine this last weekend. It was 11degrees out and all the boys in there were comfy. Definitely will need to get auger style stakes for the frozen ground for next time. But it’s a learning experience. Great product and easy setup.
I bought this tent to take my boys (15 & 17) on a deer hunting trip. It was by far one of the greatest investments I've made in the father/son fun department. We did the 8x8 awning tent for a kitchen and set up the main tent with a cylinder stove and the Disco XL bunk beds. There was plenty of room for folding chairs and tables. It was basically like staying in a cabin.
I was impressed how warm and spacious it was -just like the reviews on YouTube said. The Disco XL beds were amazingly comfortable and I highly recommend them as well. This tent really helped my boys get excited about deer season and camping in general. We just created a new family tradition!
On the company side, I have been very impressed with Jon in customer service. He helped my select the right package and assisted with the order. When I tore the roof (via my own sheer stupidity), he walked me through the repair and is sending me a free piece of roof material for the patch. This is obviously a small company very focused on their customer's satisfaction.
And by the way, I put the tent with kitchen attachment up by myself in under an hour and a half. It came down even quicker. It literally goes up quicker than some of our LL Bean summer tents. The zippers are totally solid and the venting is great- no condensation issues at all.
I was looking for a heavy, durable, warm blanket, and this did the trick. I gave them to my siblings families for Christmas, and they loved them.
