Key features


What is this about

This Camp Creek Two-Room tent is the largest in the Camp Creek series that additionally contains single room 4-perboy and also 6-person tents, so this is the only 2-room tent in the series.

The tentis a cabin type in the true sense, through directly and tall steep wall surfaces, and also with a height height of 84 inches (213 cm). This is also a completely freestanding tent and this holds evenas soon as you put the fly on; also then you have the right to revolve it and also relocate roughly to get the ideal place in the camp. This is because the fly is attached to the tent base and you execute not have to stake it to the ground. But you have multipleguy-out points on each side, 6 in complete, so you have the right to resolve it effectively and put the mind at remainder.

This tentis for auto camping, you see this from its weight which is 31.5 lb (14.3 kg).

Who is it for

Size-wise, the tent is with the declared capacity of 6 civilization. Now, the floor location is 120 ft² (11.16 m²) and also this gives 20 ft² (1.86 m²) per perboy which is not so negative really. If you compare it through their single-room 6-person variation you will certainly realize that here you have actually 20 square feet (1.9 m²) more.

But I still think it is finest suited for 2 couples or for paleas through a maximum of 2 kids, or just for a couple who need some even more space in the tent. See the floor arrangement and exactly how they imply using it:

The argued use of the floor location.

Obviously, each of the two rooms is big sufficient to accommoday a queen-size bedand you would certainly still have plenty of area underneath the beds to store your equipment. Though such a tall tent via vertical wall surfaces is best suited for bunk-cots for adults and for kids.

Seasons-wise, they describe it as a 3-seakid tent and the waterproof rating is such that this deserve to be taken as a fact. But there is lots of mesh below and also the fly is not full coverage (hence so many kind of excellent windows), so I think it is much better suited for summer camping and also maximum for 2 seasons, which implies late spring, summer, and also at an early stage fall. As mentioned over, this is a really tall structure and not specifically aerodynamic so I would not use it in a really windy setting.

Climate-wise, via so a lot mesh the tent will not maintain the warmth and it is best suited for a warmer setting. Also, select somepoint more enclosed if you arrangement to camp in a dusty location. Check these Vango Avington 600XL and Vango 600 Odyssey Air tents for such a function.

The fabric
