All seams are sealed, and it includes a rainfly that keeps you protected when inside. The large windows provide you with lots of light and air during the day while the front awning provides shade. Tents can be ozark trail shower tent quite the investment, but one of the great things about camping is that (within reason) you can spend as much or as little as you like. And if you’re on a budget, that’s where Ozark Trail tents come into play.

This 10-Person tent requires no assembly because the poles are pre-attached to the tent. The two-room, cabin style tent has panoramic views with windows on all sides and room to stand up with a huge 78-inch center height. It comfortably fits two queen airbeds or up to 10 campers in sleeping bags on the floor.

Ozark Trail Instant Cabin Tent with Built in Cabin Lights is a 10-person 2-room freestanding easy to use pleasant summer camping tent with a great price tag. I would say this tent makes a great choice for a small family, or a group of friends that want to go on a camping trip. On this tent you will find 3 large windows, while there’s enough room to house 2 queen-sized air mattresses. It isn’t exactly the cheapest cabin tent on the market, however that doesn’t mean all expensive products are high quality and up to everyone’s expectations.

The main selling point of this tent is the screen room that is attached to the exterior wall of the main tent. Screened rooms are great for providing a large space that you can enjoy the surrounding natural landscape in a mesh-enclosed environment. A nice touch on the rainfly is that it extends over the screen room so you can remain “indoors” while it pours, offering some respite during rained off days. Which is the main reason people opt for the screen rooms, for that little area to chill in. Caters to those who are looking for a large shelter for family or group camping. A mesh room is the main draw here, with its large size allowing it to be configured any way you choose.

If you’re looking for a budget-friendly, easy-to-setup tent, the Dark Rest line has a lot to offer. The easy setup, as well as its compact size, makes these tents excellent options for hiking camping trips or even music festivals. If you’re looking for a convenient family tent to bring on your next camping trip, this has lots to offer. The three rooms with separate doors provide you and your family with easy access and plenty of space. This is a 10-person cabin tent, featuring three rooms and measures a total of 20 by 10 by 6.5 feet. It can fit three queen-sized airbeds and has a center height of 78 inches.

This is a freestanding construction, self-supporting and stable as you can realize from the picture below which shows the tent without the fly. But you should certainly not miss staking it properly, the stakes and guylines are included in the package. It isn’t the greatest tent for its price range, but it works as everyone expects it to. If you want a tent that’s fast to pitch, this one is definitely worth considering.

Unfortunately, the steel pole in the back of the tent did not lock into position, so this tent is defective. I did not continue to set up the screen porch (which has no floor) or put the rainfly on. I did go inside the tent to stand up and not hunched over and noticed the mesh ceiling with lots of ventilation. I’m sure this tent is good during a wind storm and rain/condensation issues. She points out that, when shopping for tents, you will absolutely get what you pay for. Higher-quality tents will have seams already sealed to protect from rain.

The mesh ceiling creates a comfortable cross-ventilation while keeping rain and creepy crawlers on the outside. With two compartments and access to an electrical cord, you can stay organized and connected. For families looking for an easy-to-assemble tent, this has a lot to offer with three rooms and a high ceiling. You can easily fit two queen-sized airbeds or 11 individual sleeping bags. It has a carry weight of 27.1 pounds, and it’s suitable for three seasons, excluding winter.

We tried sleeping with it open for a few nights, but it wasn’t nearly as comfy. My only issue is that one little hook for the hanging storage on the side was not sewed in, so we had to utilize one of the windows, but it still works. The doors are also a touch slack, making it difficult for tiny children to zip and unzip without catching the fabric. When all panels are closed, you retain a significant amount of warmth, which is advantageous over traditional summer camping tents simply netting on the roof.
