Default Standing Room Tents Family Cabin: It attaches to your 10' x 10' canopy



Hey guys and gals, I got a new tent for the new year! I needed something big, sturdy, and comfortable, because my significant other doesn't like roughing it too much. She tried backpacking me with and she didn't enjoy that very much. I was pretty comfy sleeping on Thermarest sleeping mats but she has back problems. I plan on taking this into the mountains for a snow camping trip. I have a Mr. Heater tent heater that I'll use, passing the gas line outside to a 5lbs propane tank. The roof has a hook that I'll hand a Deitz oil lantern on. I have a queen sized inflatable, plenty of room inside, but I prefer using 2 cots. I'll have a "entertainment" corner where I'll have 2 backpacking chairs and use the cooler as a table for playing cards.

So I choose this type of tent because of the easy set up. I had an Ozark Trails 10 by 10 canopy and all you have to do is "clip" it onto the frame. Now you have a really sturdy cabin style tent. I'm 6'1" and i can stand in all for corners. Tons of space inside, just a little under 10' x 10' and the roof at the highest point is 8.5'.

Here's a video of the setup:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=merOQs__taE



Specs:
Waterproof heavy duty 150d polyester
10' x 10' x 8.5'
tub styled floor, keep the mud and water out
2 sky lights
4 doors, convertible to screen doors
4 utility pouches
hook on the roof for a lantern
outlet for power cable or propane line

That looks like a good one too, but you'll have to make sure your canopy doesn't have any holes or cracks because the whole roof on that tent is mesh. The one I got is already waterproof on it's on

It appears you have done a lot of planning and prep work to make your wife comfortable, but I suggest rethinking your plan on using a propane heater inside of a closed tent. Every winter, I read about someone using that type of a heater in a closed in space and asphyxiating everyone inside the closed space. I would recommend looking at a ceramic heater that runs off electricity.

I really appreciate your post Randy. Safety is a big concern and you're 100% right a ceramic heater running of electricity is the safest. Whenever we use the Mr. Heater, even though it has a low oxygen shut up feature, I never sleep well. I wake up and make sure the ventilation is good and there isn't a leak. Using an electric heater does me peace of mind and a restful sleep for sure. You can never be too safe. Thank you again for your sound advice.

Does it come with stakes because that looks like it'd get blown away with a gust of wind.

No stakes but it does have loops running along the bottom of the tent on all four sides for tent stakes. The Ozark Trails canopy I used is really heavy, maybe 60-70lbs? On a windy day I would stake it all down for sure, maybe use some sandbags.

I feels great being inside, all that usable space makes you feel like you're in a cabin and not a tent. you can stand in all four corners.

If you already have a canopy, paying a hundred for this tent is good deal. Most cabin tents are over $200. This is more is sturdy and easier to set up.

It needs a fly for any serious work. I've been snowed on over Memorial week end more than a few times and encountered rain in every month of the year. PAX

Ive been using those for a few years. AWESOME tents when you have kids...
Not bad for hunting either. Last year I just put a large heavy duty tarp suspended over it from trees and we camped in cold weather with it for a week.

There really has to be something said about a tent you can stand up in, store gear in and NOT weigh 500lbs!

OP, you should consider looking at a USB lantern to replace the oil lantern. They put out more light, don't stink and won't burn your tent down. With a solar charger you don't need to feed it batteries either.

The oil lamp puts out heat.

I was thinking about doing that too, hang a tarp above it. I'm loving this tent so far.

Good point, safety should be a big concern.

On Amazon, it shows this tent is only 10 lbs. I'm guessing this is only the tent itself, and you gotta have your own frame?

Correct, the tent attaches to a frame that you have, but is not included.

Use a luci light for the lantern. It’s like 15$, solar chargeable and completely safe. It’s also weighs like a few ounces so when you stand up and smack your head on it there is no pain.

A generator outside the tent which annoys everyone around is where you plug it in.

Jackets, hats, gloves and warm sleeping bags work for me.

I wonder how it would handle in the wind. I've had friends' big coleman tents blow over, while my little REI halfdome tent just stays put in big gusts of wind.

I have an old school Eureka cabin tent I bought about 20 years ago.
Canvas with only 3 sectioned poles.
The poles are held with rope staked to the ground and the tent stays up in high winds.

For $129 at Costco check this one out. All the reviews look good. I'm planning to get this one for my trips with my son's Cub Scout pack.

Get a tent with a full length rain fly if you expect to stay dry inside when it really rains.

Tents with a cap over the top of the tent body (two season tent) will keep the sun (heat) off the tent, but rain will splash up after hitting the ground, and hit the sides of the tent directly causing leaks.

Tents with full rain flies (three season tents) are designed to roll the rain fly up out of the way to increase ventilation and lighting when the weather is good, and to quickly roll down into position if it starts raining.

Tents designed for winter camping (four season tents) usually have limited or no windows or venting, and an increased number of poles (for strength).

I would be surprised if your Ozark Trail weights 60-70 lbs.

The whole point of camping is to use body heat and extreme smuggling to keep warm.

My stand up family tent was made by Black Sheep .

Can fit a king size bed in each of the side rooms , park a full size truck in the center room ( or full size picnic bench, coolers ,all gear).

My little boy , all 6'6"s of him can stand in the side rooms and stretch his arms above his head and just touch the roof .

She sleeps 21 people , and they have plenty of wiggle room.

Takes all of 15 min to set up , outside frame/poles.

Looks like a Revival Meeting house.
