You're lucky to have a wife who goes camping-- and who is committed enough to it that the hoped-for event is factored into it.

Single-wall tents aren't popular - the condensation is apparently a problem. Any sales clerk mentioned this (for other tents too), when saw that the customer was kind of picky. Similar reports from users as well. Eurekas aren't expensive - Campmor has Timberline 4Xt for $150, I think. Good thing it is a free-standing.

The tent arrived Friday, and I had a chance to set it up yesterday, took it down and put it away this afternoon. Some photos are .

Assembly was straightforward using the provided instruction sheet. It's really green in there. Disassembly and repacking was equally simple.

I'm not sure how functional the vestibule will be as the actual "floor space" under it is pretty small. Still probably a good place to keep stuff you don't want in the tent with you , but want out of the weather. And the tent does have a door on either end. I may buy a tarplike awning designed for this tent to attach at the rear door.

Chris

just bought my new tent. It is a museum piece, 45 years old, still as new, made from extremely heavy weight cotton in times of Deutsche Wertarbeit, has a thick rubber floor Tent was used just one time in nearly 50 years. You can still find some talcum from the factory on some rubber rings. The quality is amazing, can't compare with nowadays stuff. What a bargain grip, i am very happy to have it.
From now on this tent will get used!

Cheers, Knownknight

there was an error, thought is was from 1963, but 53 is the correct dating!

Looks lke one of those with 2 poles and ropes, or, as they call it, a Pup-tent. My last commercially purchased tent of this kind was made in East Germany of medium-weight canvas with rubber floor in the mid-70s. East Europe was probalby the last place where you could still buy them in regular sport equipment stores, rather than in army surplus warehouses. Heavy, bulky, little or no windows (don't remember), and difficult to pitch. Durability was good, but hikers were not happy with this weight. Was much relieved to switch to free-standing synthetic tents later.

I prefer my 35 year old vango force 8 made in cotton with a fly sheet which goes close to the ground right round the tent , zip at the entrance, I,ve been told these are still available to special order but I,ve never checked. But they do need pegs to hold them up, so for georgian bay where there is little to no soil a free standing tent is required, for this I purchased a eureka moutain pass 2 xtc which is for two but it,s great for one, I,m not saying it,s the best, I like it. It,s free standing but you have to secure it to rocks or whatever is available to ensure the wind dos,nt take it away.
