Eureka Copper Canyon 6 Tent

PROS:

    Eureka Copper Canyon 6 Tent

  • Affordable price
  • Roomy with tall center height
  • Easy setup (a two-person job)
  • Very good wind and rain resistance
  • Excellent cross ventilation

CONS:

  • Stakes bend easily (Tip: buy extra stakes)
  • Bad door zipper design (instead of a single zipper, it has 2 – one runs vertically and the other horizontally along the bottom)

BOTTOM LINE:

The Eureka Copper Canyon 6 Tent is part of the free standing, cabin-style Eureka Copper Canyon Tent series, which comprises 4 models (Copper Canyon 4, 6, 8 & 12) for sleeping from four to twelve people. One large ‘D’ Style door simplifies exit or entry. 4 large zippered windows (two on each side) and a generous roof vent allow for excellent ventilation. The hybrid steel/fiberglass frame is sturdy and reliable. Set up is a breeze with shock-corded poles that attach with a combination of clips and sleeves and that makes set up faster and easier. The near vertical walls creates very good useable space inside the tent; a great choice for recreational and family camping.

Approximate cost of ownership: $220
