Our troop is currently raising funds to purchase Eureka Timberline Tents,
the 4 man version which is just right for two. The one door model is
$155 in Campmoor less a 10% discount bringing the net price to 134.50.
This tent is a very good choice. It sets up fast and has a floor of
about 6'x 8' or larger. We may neverless pay about $10 more per tent
locally because the retailer is very good on repair and service.
I would recommend the vestibule because the scouts can leave the muddy
boots and wet gear in the vestibule, keeping the inside of the tent
cleaner and cutting down on wear and tear. I can't do without my vestibule!
