Springbar does it again! Worth the "investment"

Did I need another tent...No. Did I buy another one...YES! This past year I finally decided to get a GOOD tent instead of "experimenting" with different types/makes of tents. It came in about a week after ordering. This is my second of three (also have a Family Camper and Compact) Springbar tents I have purchased-I guess I'm addicted...LOL. I basically need different sizes depending on which park we stay at, and how many campers are going. The quality is outstanding and made in the USA is a plus! I got mine in Bison color to be different. Looks great, set up was easy even in almost dark conditions. Will be using it tonight to break it in and see how it is in colder temps (It's been getting down into the high 30's at night). If it's anything like I expect, there should be no problems. I'm looking forward to many, many more years usage from each of them!
Customer service was top-notch when I contacted them about a question!

You get what you pay for, this is worth it

I received my Bison one week after securing my order, packaging is great, tent arrived in good condition, I enjoyed pulling all the components out, the tent has a feeling of quality you don't get much anymore. the Saturday after the tent arrived we set it up in the yard, I don't think I have ever found a tent so easy to understand and assemble. the tent smells clean, the smell of the plastics used on most tents is the same, this is different and better. this feels like a long lasting item, we can't wait to get out and use it on our adventures in the coming years. On a parting note, my biggest reason for buying from Springbar was the fact that some of their tent models, including the Bison, are made in the USA, almost all other brands I considered are imported. I understand the need to compete on the global market, so I don't begrudge Springbar for sourcing some of their items overseas, however, considering some of the atrocities being committed by China against its people, I would rather spend my money helping improve the lives of craftsman in my own country rather than continuing to fuel a foreign country's war against it's citizens.
