The bottom front part of the tent has hooks that connect to the bottom of the canopy poles. Once the front of the tent is connected, you stretch out the tent and one pole is placed into the slots located in the back part of the tent. Stake the back corners, and bam you have a 4 person tent that is attached to your canopy.
Each tent is 10 feet by 10 feet so it is rated to sleep four people, but that would be a little tight if it was four adults. Each tent has two windows and a mesh ceiling that can be covered with the pre-attached rainfly.For the family that doesnt need three separate tents connected together, Ozark Trail also has an option to connect 2 tents. It is really similar in concept to ConnecTent previously listed, except you are only connecting one side tent to the main center tent.
Also, someone who is trying camping for the first time may not want to invest in high-end camping gear until they know this is the right type of holiday for them, so a budget-friendly option may be more suitable. Experienced campers may be looking to add to their existing tent or looking to renew or upgrade. The possibilities are many.For first-time campers, the choice of sizes, shapes and materials of tents can be quite confusing, so we recommend that you read up on the various options first to see what is important to you. You will find plenty of information on-line, or from reputable camping and caravanning sites. You might also want to come and have a look at one of our stores, and speak to our sales team who between them have lots of experience when it comes to camping, hiking and tents.
The tents themselves have a floor size of nine feet by seven feet, with a center height of 66 inches. Setup time is really quick, normally 5 minutes at most. The tents have two large windows and a mesh roof. There is an attached rain fly that can be quickly rolled up to open up the mesh roof, providing great ventilation during the day and an awesome view at night. There are even a couple of storage pockets built into the tent itself. We cant stress this enough these tents do not work without the canopy, and the canopy is sold separately.
In the rain while camping after this treatment, there was only a trivial amount of leakage concentrated beneath the door entries. Since there is not a tent fly (but only a single layer of fabric) it is best not to let items touch the fabric, which cab wick moisture to whatever it touches. For cooler weather camping, the tent completely closes except for the air vent at the peak. I give this tent a rating of 5, not because it is perfect for all users, but because for me it does such an exceptionally nice job with a highly original concept, and because I like it so much. Some may wish for a lighter tent (mine weighs 13 pounds). Others may prefer a slightly heavier weight more water-resistant fabric. As for myself, I feel that an annual application of the Camp Dry treatment will over the years bond me ever closer to this product. Frankly I am happy with it the way it is.
Ozark Trail also makes a connect tent that has a canopy built into it. Unlike the first option listed in this article, since the canopy is built in it doesnt have to be purchased separately. Setup is relatively easy. The first thing to setup is the canopy, which is basically locking the poles into the correct connectors. Since the canopy can be big and awkward to move on your own, we do recommend having two people during the setup process.
