Tent Choice

Im looking for a good tent for this upcoming camping season and ive been looking around i found this one Coleman
Does anyone have any experience with this one? Last year my tent had a leaking problem and we all got soaked it sucked so this year thats not going to happen again. Any recommendations would be great im trying to stay under the 200-225 mark. Good quality and Leak protection and able to fit 6 people Thanks!

How are the Jeep brand tents?

Also does anyone go to Delaware Water Gap for camping i go to Dingmans Ferry just looking to see if maybe some people wanna meet up this summer. Thanks again!

I have a Coleman cabin tent. It's either 7' or 9' x 15'. After I sealed the seams it didn't leak a drop. My tent is three years old. I'm pretty sure it's made the same way.

Coleman makes very nice tents. I believe it's an 16x7 I own and it has held up very well.

Stays nice and Dry in a rainstorm.. used it once and woke up feeling like a waterbed.. accidentally put it in the wrong spot and under the tent was an inch of water but none came through.. I reccomend 100% got mine on sale at Dicks Sporting Goods in VA Beach last year or so....

If you rough it all conditions, full fly all the way. I've been camping in tents for along time and had every tent under the sun. The tent your looking at, i consider a fair weather tent. I have an Infinity with full rubberized fly that's been through mild hurricane conditions and held up nicely. High winds and driving rain has destroyed a couple tents of mine with partial flys that are attached to the tent poles rather than staked to the ground. Rarely do things get that bad for most people, but if it happens once, you'll rethink your tent situation in a hurry. I also have Columbia tents for fair weather, good air circulation and remote control lighting.

I bought "MY JEEP" for my wife
I bought "MY OTHER JEEP" for my daughter [she sold it]
I finally bought one for me

I've owned this tent for several years and I love it !
http://www.campmor.com/webapp/wcs/st...uctId=39281720

My husband and I share it and the kids have their own (L shaped Coleman). We have our queen size air mattress, our clothes tote (22 gallon rubermade), a folding chair, the shoes mat and the dog bed in there with plenty of room.
It's been through many storms and has never leaked (seam seal yearly, spray seal once every couple of years or so).
