I had been looking at getting this tent for a couple of months. With a family of four, consisting of two small children, I needed a tent that would fit us all, plus the dog, and keep us warm during the colder months. I buy quality products that will last a lifetime, which is why I wanted a quality tent like this. This will be the last tent my family uses.
Now trying to take the plunge on buying this tent with so little photos of it on the website was a little daunting. There were no photos of the inside until recently with that model. I would of appreciated more photos and a video. There weren’t even any video reviews on YouTube. I chose this tent over the competitors for a few reasons, the main one being how easily I can convert it into a hot tent, or just zip that stove Jack section out and have the regular window. Good on you Springbar. Also the fact that I can put it up by myself was something I wanted. Which is easy to do. It’s time consuming putting in the stakes. And takes a bit of effort to really stretch the side poles to tighten up the structure but it’s not that hard. The tent has been up in my back yard for the past month and has withstood multiple Arizona storms with heavy rain and strong winds. We’ve had multiple fires in the stove and cooked some food on the stove top. We all love the tent. It’s spacious, looks good, feels good and has shown to be reliable.
The only problem I had with the tent was the T bracket piece that goes on each side to connect the top poles to the side poles had some pretty deep gashes in them. They do not affect the strength or integrity of the pieces, but it was upsetting to see on such an expensive purchase. I’m not sure how they both had such marks on them for being new pieces. Other than that, I was sent the wrong stove. I got the nomad instead of the woodlander. I’m not complaining though as the nomad is slight more expensive. The stove Jack was super easy to instal. It comes with a template to trace over the fire resistant window replacement. It shows where to trace your hole for which Winnerwell stove you got. Overall I am very glad that we made the purchase. I would buy it again. Thank you Springbar for making an awesome tent for my family and I to enjoy.
