Eureka!'s Biggest Luxury Tent
Show us someone who doesn't have a tent, and we'll show you someone who needs to get outside more. Of course, there are those who prefer the comforts of a $500,000 Blue Bird Wanderlodge motor home, but that's about as close to camping as an Audi A4 is ready to run the Rubicon. For most of us, the beauty of throwing a tent into the back of our 4x4 and heading to the solitude of the wilderness (or the comparative luxury of a KOA campground) is what it's all about.
One of the coolest tents we've seen is the Eureka! Condo. This massive shelter is the Blue Bird Wanderlodge of tents, offering enough space for you and up to 11 of your friends to hang out in with room to spare. It features three rooms, and one of the rooms has a divider panel that clips in to create an area for privacy. The Condo offers 210 square feet of total living space, so rainy days won't terrify you, and 10 massive windows fill 75 percent of the 12-foot tall walls. It has a 10-foot, 6-inch x 20-foot footprint, patented High/Low venting doors, and zippered mesh ceiling panels to maximize air flow. The floor is heavy-duty 4-ounce oxford nylon, the fly is Eureka!'s polyester Stormshield fabric, the walls are 1.9-ounce standard taffeta, and the ceiling is 1.9-ounce permeable taffeta. Worried about someone (or something) staring in at you? The windows are constructed of No-See-Um Netting, which is made from the tightest-weave 40 Denier available, which means that you can see out, but seeing in is a bit of a challenge.
The Eureka! Condo is one of 48 tents in the Eureka! product lineup. From what we've seen, the company has a tent for every situation, including cold weather camping. Best of all, you can fold up your Eureka! tent and throw it in the back of your four-wheeler. Try and do that with a Wanderlodge.
