Colman Tent - Do I love it?

Image
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. 

Screened 4-person Evanston Tent I love the colorI love the sizeI love the screened second spaceI love the heightI love the open mesh to see the starsI love this tentI 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.

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

Amazon $73 Ebay $86 Colman Without Screen $130

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
