John (and the rest of the list),
Our Troop currently uses Diamond Brand Free Spirit I tents. These
are very similar to the Eureka Timberland. I believe that Diamond
Brand makes the same style/name tent for the BSA (see the catalog).
Our Scouts decided to get these A-frame tents in the 4-person size,
even though they are about 3 lbs heaver than the 2-person size. We
camp 3 Scouts or 2 adults to a tent and there seems to be ample room
We purchased eight of them at a local outdoor store about 5 years ago
for about $125-150 each. We recently got vestibules for them and
quickly got 'spoiled' to the extra 14 sq ft of space!
We have gotten excellent service from these tents and will buy the
same style when we need more. Good luck with your research!
