Price/cost-I am the type that likes a good deal, however, I also want the best quality which ultimately means the deals I end up with cost a bit more overall. I also am incredibly “researchy” which is a truly magnificent trait when you don’t have to deal with it all the time. This personality of mine brings forth a toss up when searching for a bargain as I refuse to sacrifice quality and will spend countless hours finding the best of the best.
Enter the Springbar Factory 2nds option.
I toyed around with the idea of purchasing full price for a couple weeks, because honestly now that I have the tent I completely stand behind the cost. I also waited for a couple releases to see if anything made me jump on the “checkout button”. I even called the company, asked about the factory seconds options, emailed them, asked for photos etc. The companies customer service is top notch and they happily obliged.
Additionally- I’m sensitive to odors and while there is a slight chemical smell when you initially set the tent up it’s gone in a matter of hours. No flame retardants, safe for my family and size wise the tents huge and looks great. Second night using the tent in Florida we were hit with a torrential downpour and a lightning storm, not sure how the tent would do if hit by lightning but I can attest that it didn’t leak at all. A+
Setting the tent up/ease of use- I’m a single mom and I set up the 10x14 family camper in a matter of 15-20 minutes at midnight with a five inch flashlight held by an 11 year old who wanted to be in the car while I did it. It’s simple and sturdy. No expletives, no confusion, just a quick look at the directions and repeatedly encouraging the light bearer to “please stop shining the flashlight in my eyes”.
I hope I’ve saved you a lot of time because all you have to do is read my review to know it’s worth it-buy the tent! Don’t wait, don’t second guess it, it’s perfect. Thanks Springbar for already helping my family make memories.
