Looking for a good family tent.
« on: October 10, 2014, 12:55:28 PM »
I am trying to find a good family tent that's not going to break the bank. I found this one today anybody ever used it? Open for suggestions it needs to be at least a 8 person tent.

The tent probably works just fine for a family outing where you can drive to the campsite.  Read the reviews.  Appears to be easy to set up and may or may not leak if it rains.  There are a lot of these tents on the market and its difficult to make a decision without seeing them pitched.  I am partial to real canvas tents as they last a long time and offer good protection from the elements but if you use it just a few times a year it will probably be okay.
