Rated 3 out of 5 by TT18 Tent Great! Not as Described...
Had my last tent for about 12 years. It was great until my son joined cub scouts. The fly ripped the first campout after my son tripped over the guy line on the rainfly and tore it. So, I decided that it was time for a new tent. I had some features that I really wanted in a tent so I looked for just the perfect tent for quite a while. I had been eyeing the evanston-6 for some time but comparing constantly against other tents. I like the Coleman brand. Their products have never let me down and it was time I tried a tent by them. What I liked about the Evanston was the Awning over the front of the tent. I also like the tubbed floor feature on all the coleman tents. Many other brands do not have this feature. I like the dome configuration for the ease of set up. My son is young and I need to be able to set this tent up by myself. With a dome I can do just that. I first got the tent 11/2 weeks ago and noticed right off the bat that there was some error. The description on the walmart.com page says there is a hinged door on this tent and the one I recieved DID NOT have this feature. I'm not sure why my tent didn't have it but this was a very big deciding factor in buying this tent over some other cheaper models. This is not a flaw in the product, this was a mess up at the shipping facility or something but this irritated me due to the fact that my campout was a week away and I had a tent that already was not quite what I paid for. I also realized afterwords that some other sites had the same tent for $20-$30 cheaper and this was after shipping. I had no time to return the tent so I used it anyway. The hinged door thing is really nice for going in and out of the tent and I really wish mine had this feature. Overall this tent is Great! and I have no issues with the craftmanship or design of the tent. I just wish it had the hinged door.
Rated 4 out of 5 by rockmom918 Great through the Wind & Rain...BUT....
...BUT as far as the diagram showing 2queen sized mattresses, that's a JOKE! There was not walking or camping bags space for my husband, 2kids and I. We had to put our bags outside the tent. * WARNING: If there will be more than 2-3 of you in this 6-person tent WITH 2 AIRBEDS, I DO NOT recommend you buy this one, BUY A 8-PERSON TENT we were very cramped up. It's okay if there is one airbed and 1 sleeping bag(In other words 3people#.
Also mine did not come with a swing door, just plain zip door :-#
Easy set up, kept us dry during rain, no rips or tears, nice quality
We used this tent May-August 2011, Every weekend for camping at the lake.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Eaglemtntrail The tent as expected except the rainfly wasn't the one for tent. Close, but did not fit. The Walmart internet information stated that the tent had a hinged door. It did not.
