This 20-Person Tent Has Sleeping Rooms, So Everyone in Your Family Will Be Comfortable

Thread the stakes through the tent pole sleeves that are sewn into the seams of the tent body. Center the poles so that the tent resembles a spider’s web. When you’re looking at what you want in a tent, consider how many ozark trail canopy people are going to be using it. Is it for a large family or just used short camping trips? If you’re going to use air mattresses, be sure it fits your size of mattress (most tents can fit a queen size air mattress).

What are they plastic or made out of pewter.And before you guys cop an attitude, I have been camping since I was at least 4 years old and I am now in my mid-50s. Ozark Trail is basically Walmart’s house brand, or private brand, and I think the reason Walmart and Coleman are able to keep their prices low is because all these tents are made in either China or Bangladesh. All these windows are pretty small, which limits ventilation on a hot day.

In windy conditions high stress is applied to each side and the frame begins to break down at the unreinforced joint connectors. The most popular product in their line is the 10×10 Instant Slant Leg Tent with a blue canopy top. It is made with a steel construction frame and polyester material for the ozark tent canopy, which is in line with just about every shade tent on the market today. The frame is that of a pyramid structure, which are generally found in all value brand canopy tents as they require less material to manufacture vs. that of a full truss system and as a result can keep the price lower.

My other tents with similar designs did not have this serious of a snagging problem. Overall, because a lot of water leaked through the un-taped seams and even the tent fabric after just 15 minutes of mostly light rain, I would say that this Ozark Trail 10-Person Tent is not waterproof at all. Drape ozark tent the rain fly over the tent so that the side with the pole sleeve is pointed down against the tent. Flex the ridge pole and secure each end by slipping it into a grommet that is built into the rain fly. Assemble your tent poles by snapping the nylon sections into the metal tube-shaped connectors.

These 4 mattresses take up the entire tent, and there’s hardly any space leftover for camping gear. Ozark Trail is a line of tents manufactured for retail sale in Walmart stores. The tents are contracted for manufacture through a variety of companies, the largest of which is North Pole USA. They are made for family and casual camping, and as such as are designed to be easy to set up, even if you have never set up a tent before. The Hazel Creek 20-Person Star Tent With Screen Room was designed to sleep, yes, 20 people.

However, one of the rear hooks (that also seats the fly pole) started pulling out of the seam, so we managed to swap it for a replacement @ a Walmart in North Carolina. The replacement worked fine for the remainder of our tour, including surviving a pretty heavy thunderstorm in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
