    Our family used our Tentragon 9 tent every weekend last summer (2008). Well constructed, easy to put up (the clips are easy unlike sleeves), it is spacious and holds all our gear. We like it so much we bought a Tentragon 7 for backpack camping. We slept in many all night rains and never had a leak once the tent was seam sealed. Sealer available at Gander Mountain. Great tent!

    Used once, didn't rain but very damp out by lakeside, and I stayed dry, no fighting mosquitos or the ants. The tent was easy to set up even the first time at dusk, and easy to take down. My only gripe is that my tent did not come with a carry sack - I don't know if it was supposed to or not, but now I'm having to improvise.

      Comments about Eureka! Tetragon 9 Family Tent:

      About ten years ago I purchased this tent for car camping. The quality is simply excellent and I would recommend this tent to anyone that wants a sturdy, durable and comfortable tent. Some outdoor stores recommend the purchase of a ground pad but I have never found it necessary.
      The fabric has held up extremely well over the years and the zippers have functioned perfectly. A great tent for anyone making a long term investment.

        I would definitely recommend this tent for family campers. We had owned a smaller Eureka tent before my daughter was born. My husband and I used it frequently and it lasted forever!. We need more room now and purchased this tent for our family. It poured down rain on this tents first voyage. [...] We were 4 hours from home and setting it up at 9pm. It poured rain that nightand I had not seamed sealed the tent yet. We woke up nice and dry. Easily fit our family of three and our gear. Could probably comfortably house one or two more children.

          Awesome tent! Period.

          Story goes:
          Went camping
          Rained buckets first night; rained second night. Tent kept everything dry.
          Wind gusts first night; 5-10MPH wind second night. Tent withstood the wind no problem.

          Zippers work great.
          Ventilation is great, no condensation at all.
          Floor seams are taped, tub and rain fly waterproofed.

          Only minor issue (not sure if it's even an issue)is that the tub had a few damp spots, but it did not feel wet. This may have been caused by the puddles between the tub and the tarp. Nothing inside was wet though.

          Most of all I like the fact that I pulled this tent out of the box and it was ready to go. I didn't have to hassle with taping/sealing/waterproofing.

            • A:

              No tent is 100% waterproof. These nylon tents are fairly good at keeping out light rain, but to stay really dry, you need to tarp over and under the tent.

              A:

              I would recommend placing a tarp under the tent so that the edges of the tent stick out over the tarp 3 or 4 inches. That way the rain cannot run onto the tarp and funnel under the tent. The tarp also helps on rough terrain.

            • A:

              You will extend the life of the floor by using some type of ground cloth.
              Small objects under the floor when walked on will try to get pushed through the material.

              A ground cloth (nylon usually) will offer more resistance to water getting under the tent as well.

              It's always a good idea to place a tarp between your tent and the ground -- it helps reduce moisture and cold.
