Looks pretty good so far

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

We just picked up one of these screen tents for a music festival.
After setting it up in our yard, we got pretty excited. The medium sized tent is quite large, and bit enough for 4-5 people to sleep/relax comfortably.
The screens are all able to be covered up with flaps from the inside and you'll still get the privacy of a tent, so getting dressed no longer requires any exhibitionism.

We equipped our base camp with Goal Zero solar panels and are now able to charge phones, crank out some tunes, and power some sweet christmas lights!

Come find us at Counterpoint Festival in Georgia next week!

Good quality but a bit low

We failed to set it up the first time. It's not very intuitive and we struggled for about 15 min under rain (and we set up many tents before). We tried again at home a few days ago, and worked it out. It seems it needs 2 people to hold at both end of the side poles to squeeze it up into position.

The quality is very good, solid materials and strong poles, seams are tight woven (not sure if all water tight) and should last for years. The downside is the height. I'm 5'7 and my head could touch the center area when standing inside. Of course if you are sitting inside and cooking stuff, it's not an issue at all.

Give it 4 star because of the setup instruction wasn't clear enough, and it could be higher inside.

Great for bugs

The screenhouse does a great job of keeping out the bugs. I just got back from a mosquito-heavy trip in the Uintas, and we were always able to take shelter in the Screenhouse to keep from getting bitten. Very effective at keeping out the bugs. And quick to set up - it took about 10 minutes to set up the first time, would probably be under 5 minutes in the future.

I've deducted 1 star b/c the tent can get hot (i.e., hotter than outside) when there's no breeze or just a light breeze. This is because the mesh is a very dense, which probably helps keep all the bugs out, but it also blocks light breezes.

Also, this is definitely best for car camping as it's quite large and heavy.

Great Shelter

I looked high and low to find a good screen shelter as an accessory for our Teardrop Camper. Most that I saw were too cheaply made, too small, too big, too difficult to assemble or didn’t provide privacy.

Being that our teardrop camper is small and mainly for sleeping; I was looking for a shelter that could double as a dining area and also provide us privacy while changing. The interior flaps allow us to easily convert this screen tent into a privacy shelter.

The quality is first rate – equal to equipment of much higher price. The shelter can easily be assembled and dismantled in minutes even by one person…and have done so many times. Assembling the shelter is even easier with two of us at the task.

I’ve used the shelter a couple of times and am very pleased. Based on past experience with tents of lesser quality, I anticipate many years of use with this shelter.

Good sunshade, May not hold up to weather

I took this on a camping trip recently where we experienced relative high winds (20-30 mph). I used all the down guides, which worked pretty well. It didn't blow over. I knocked off one star because the roof is "droopy". If it rains, the water will pool up. I have a multi-purpose aluminum extension pole that I will use (with a towel balled up on the top to prevent tearing) which should solve the issue.

What are the "roll down shades"? Are these nylon covers that fit over the windows and do they provide privacy? Are they installed from the inside or the outside of the shelter?

Best Answer Responded on

Laurier,
These are nylon flaps mounted on the bottom inside of hte screen that can cover the entire screen portion on each wall. They can provide prviacy and some protection from the wind and low-angle sun. If you look at the image above you can see them rolled up at the bottom of ecah screen portion.

Love this shelter!

My initial impression of the Screenhouse was impressive! Previously, my family had been using a WalMart bought, pop-up shade canopy. The transition to the Screenhouse significantly reduced the cargo capacity needs of our vehicle and significantly increased functionality. Now, when rain, wind, sun, bugs, cold become issues, we simply close up the Screenhouse and the whole family is protected. Additionally, we can now move all car camping gear into the Screenhouse when we depart for the days events with much less worry of damage or disappearance.
Vertical walls on the two door sides and near vertical on the ends. Usefulness of all interior space was incredible!
Overall stability of the Screenhouse was amazing. Between the exoskeleton and the abundant stake-out points, stability was never a concern.
Setup was a breeze. The exoskeleton was easy and very self-explanatory.
Happy wife happy life. Need I say more????
