Core Equipment Instant Cabin Tent 12 Person - PLEASE NOTE, This tent has the full outer tent not the smaller one that can be seen in some picture -- look at our picture to see it. This is far better and stops any issues with rain ingress or wind issues that are mention in some reviews........ Very good all round condition, no problems with it.Even though this is a "fast" erect tent it isn't 2 minutes, if you try and do it that quick you will damage the legs, take your time, open it out, raise each section and you'll have your tent in 5-10 minute. Ideally I want collection as this is a very large and heavy item to post.
TOP REVIEW FROM A M A Z O N. 5.0 out of 5 stars. Reviewed in the United States on June 20, 2017. UPDATE Dec 2017 After more uses than we can count and traveling across the country camping with this tent we thought we would update our review.WE STILL LOVE THIS TENT!! Not only did we have cold weather but we also had 10 mph winds with gusts up to 15 mph. Our tent did not even quiver. It has always had an easy set up and an easy tear down. We have arrived at our camp site with only a few minutes before nightfall and still were able to put our tent up with time to spare.
It was worth every penny we spent on it. Here are some tips that may be helpful 1. Make sure you have your guylines laid down correctly! There are youtube videos on how to do this.
This may be more important than you think it is. It has nothing to do with the tiny strings and everything to do with force. Make sure you are putting your stake in the correct loop and also that your string is laid down at the right angle.
SE 9NRC10-20 Galvanized Non-Rust Tent Peg Stakes with Green Stopper. No matter what tent or screen house you are planing on getting it is ALWAYS IMPORTANT to upgrade your stakes!! This helps your tent stand in the wind.
Also make sure that you look at what campsite you are planning on camping at, if they have sand rather than dirt or gravel make sure you have sand stakes. Orange Screw: The Ultimate Ground Anchor, SMALL - 4 Pack. With this tent in particular make sure that you are tightening down your fly.
After you snap your fly onto the poles you grab the front of the strap where it is looped (in between where it is clipped on the pole and the other clip) and pull downward. Go around and do this equally to every strap. Trust me your tent won't move in the wind. We still would give this tent 5 stars it has been a great tent and has withstood many different weather and ground conditions. Looking forward to another summer camping in this tent.Original Review We spent a lot of time researching what tent would be best for our family. We wanted to be able to fit 5 twin air mattresses inside with plenty of room to spare. The initial set up took us 10 minutes (including removing the protective cardboard taped around the joints) when it was up we both kind of looked at each other in shock at how easy and smoothly it went up. Take down was just as easy.
The next time we set it up it only took us two minutes and that was in the rain! We were able to place 3 basic twin air mattresses on one side of the tent. On the other side we placed two more. That left the middle for a large staging/changing area. Just zip up the room dividers and you have all of the privacy you need.The mesh pockets under the windows came in handy for our flashlights/keys/wallets/pocketknives and anything else we wanted to keep near us and find easily in the dark. The opening for the electrical cord has a strong Velcro so once your cord is through you can squeeze the rest together preventing leaks. On our last trip it rained buckets for two days. Not one drop came inside. That is without adding protective spray or seam sealer.
It was dry in the pouring rain right out of the box. I highly recommend this tent to anyone who is looking for something well made, easy set up, and stays dry. 175 people found this helpful.
