Product Description

Amazon.com

Sleep or lounge in luxurious comfort in the Eureka Copper Canyon tent. Designed using Eureka's StormShield technology--which combines moisture-repelling materials with a tough, reinforced construction that resists against wear and tear--the nine-pole, cabin-style tent is built around an 80-square-foot sleeping room, with space for six camping pads on the floor or two cots and gear. On the other side sits an 80-square-foot screen room that offers ample protection on particularly hot or rainy days, along with a sod cloth along the perimeter to keep insects from getting inside. Combine the two rooms and you have the perfect tent for family vacations and long camping trips, with the vertical walls providing plenty of functional space.



The tent's floor plan includes sleeping space for six people.
Each room also offers multiple entrances, with a side-opening, twin-track main door for the sleeping room, an inverted T-style door with roll-back storm covers for the screen room, and a side-opening interior door for easy passage between the two. And campers will love the multiple skylights--one for each room--which let you gaze at the stars in the evening or read in comfort in the daytime.



The built-in sweep-out point makes it easy to ditch dirt.
The Copper Canyon sets up easily, with a combination steel and fiberglass frame, clip attachments, and a ring and pin assembly. And thanks to the zippered E! Power port, you can even bring a grounded outdoor extension cord into the tent without letting pesky insects in as well. Other details include seven total windows, a full-panel mesh roof, two gear lofts, a built-in sweep-out point for ditching dirt, a storage pocket that keeps your essentials organized, and sewn-in loops along the screen room perimeter for suspending a rope light. The three-season tent measures 16 by 10 feet on the floor, offers a center height of 7 foot 3 inches, and weighs 36 pounds 3 ounces. All Eureka tents carry a lifetime warranty.

About Eureka!
Though the exact year is unknown, Eureka’s long history begins prior to 1895 in Binghamton, New York, where the company still resides today. Then known as the Eureka Tent & Awning Company, its first wares were canvas products--most notably, Conestoga wagon covers and horse blankets for nineteenth century American frontiersmen--as well as American flags, store awnings, and camping tents.

The company increased production of its custom canvas products locally throughout the 1930s and during the 1940 and even fabricated and erected the IBM "tent cities" just outside Binghamton. The seven acres of tents housed thousands of IBM salesmen during the company’s annual stockholders meeting, which had since outgrown its previous locale. In the 1940s, with the advent of World War II and the increased demand for hospital ward tents, Eureka expanded operations and began shipping tents worldwide. Ultimately, upon the post-war return of the GIs and the resultant housing shortage, Eureka turned its attention to the home front during the 1950s by supplying awnings for the multitude of mobile homes that were purchased.

In 1960, Eureka’s new and innovative Draw-Tite tent, with its practical, free standing external frame, was used in a Himalayan Expedition to Nepal by world renowned Sir Edmund Hillary, the first person documented to summit Mt. Everest only six years earlier. In 1963, Eureka made history during its own Mt. Everest ascent, with more than 60 of its tents sheltering participants from fierce 60+ mph winds and temperatures reaching below -20°F during the first all American Mt. Everest Expedition.

For backpackers and families, Eureka introduced its legendary Timberline tent in the 1970s. Truly the first StormShield design, this completely self-supporting and lightweight backpacking tent became one of the most popular tents the entire industry with sales reaching over 1 million by its ten year anniversary.

Eureka tents have also traveled as part of several historic expeditions, including the American Women’s Himalayan Expedition to Annapurna I in 1978 and the first Mt. Everest ascents by a Canadian and American woman in 1986 and 1988. In recent history, tents specially designed and donated by Eureka sheltered Eric Simonson and his team on two historic research expeditions to Mount Everest, this time in a quest for truth regarding the 1924 attempted summit of early English explorers George Mallory and Andrew Irvine. During the 1999 expedition, the team made history finding the remains of George Mallory, but the complete mystery remained unsolved. Returning in 2001 to search for more clues, the team found amazing historical artifacts which are now on display at the Smithsonian.

Amazon.com Tent Guide
Selecting a Tent
Fortunately, there are all kinds of tents for weekend car campers, Everest expeditions, and everything in-between. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

Expect the Worst
In general, it's wise to choose a tent that's designed to withstand the worst possible conditions you think you'll face. For instance, if you're a summer car camper in a region where weather is predictable, an inexpensive family or all purpose tent will likely do the trick--especially if a vehicle is nearby and you can make a mad dash for safety when bad weather swoops in! If you're a backpacker, alpine climber or bike explorer, or if you like to car camp in all seasons, you'll want to take something designed to handle more adversity.

Three- and Four-Season Tents
For summer, early fall and late spring outings, choose a three-season tent. At minimum, a quality three season tent will have lightweight aluminum poles, a reinforced floor, durable stitching, and a quality rain-fly. Some three-season tents offer more open-air netting and are more specifically designed for summer backpacking and other activities. Many premium tents will feature pre-sealed, taped seams and a silicone-impregnated rain-fly for enhanced waterproofness.

For winter camping or alpine travel, go with a four season model. Because they typically feature more durable fabric coatings, as well as more poles, four-season tents are designed to handle heavy snowfall and high winds without collapsing. Of course, four-season tents exact a weight penalty of about 10 to 20 percent in trade for their strength and durability. They also tend to be more expensive.

Domes and Tunnels
Tents are broadly categorized into two types, freestanding, which can stand up on their own, and those that must be staked down in order to stand upright. Freestanding tents often incorporate a dome-shaped design, and most four-season tents are constructed this way because a dome leaves no flat spots on the outer surface where snow can collect. Domes are also inherently stronger than any other design. Meanwhile, many three-season models employ a modified dome configuration called a tunnel. These are still freestanding, but they require fewer poles than a dome, use less fabric, and typically have a rectangular floor-plan that offers less storage space than a dome configuration. Many one and two-person tents are not freestanding, but they make up for it by being more lightweight. Because they use fewer poles, they can also be quicker to set up than a dome.

Size Matters
Ask yourself how many people you'd like to fit in your fabric hotel now and in the future. For soloists and minimalists, check out one-person tents. If you're a mega-minimalist, or if you have your eye on doing some big wall climbs, a waterproof-breathable bivy sack is the ticket. Some bivy sacks feature poles and stake points to give you a little more breathing room. Also, if you don't need bug protection and you want to save weight, check out open-air shelters.

Families who plan on car camping in good weather can choose from a wide range of jumbo-sized tents that will accommodate all your little ones with room to spare. A wide range of capacities is also available for three- and four-season backpacking and expedition tents. Remember, though, the bigger the tent you buy, the heavier it will be, although it's easy to break up the tent components among several people in your group. It's also helpful to compare the volume and floor-space measurements of models you're considering.

The order arrived on time and at almost the lowest price I found. My review will copy most others I've read. The tent is spacious. Although only 1/2 the tent is floored, a simple tarp and $30 worth of indoor/outdoor carpet and there is room for more sleepers. My girlfriend and I bought this tent specifically for music festivals we attend. It's obviously more room than needed for two people, but when at a campsite for 6 days and 5 nights, the comfort of having a screen room for sitting in comfort from light to medium rain, bugs, or even other campers is quite nice. As a base tent, we can leave for the afternoon knowing that ALL gear can be stored in screen room, which by the way YOU CAN CLOSE OFF ALL SCREENS , is an added convenience. I bring this up because it's usually not stated or reflected in PICTURES. EVERY SCREEN HAS THE ABILITY TO BE BLOCKED FOR PRIVACY AND DRYNESS! If you want a great product and the willingness to invest in your camping equipment, I definitely recommend this tent. It's big and I don't recommend a novice camper to set it up alone, but well worth the money. Respect the tent, follow instructions, and for goodness sakes, seal the seams of any tent you buy.

This tent is a great product with well-written & easy to follow instructions for set-up. We set it up in or driveway a few days before our trip in about 10 minutes just so we'd know there wouldn't be any trouble once we got to our destination. The sleeping quarters are spacious - we had one queen size and one twin size air mattress with room to walk in between and room for our suitcases. Large window openings let in the breezes. Nice to have the option to use the door out of the sleeping quarters as well as thru the screen room. The screen room is great, too. No floor, obviously, but our next trip we will invest in a piece of outdoor carpet to place on the ground in it. This tent is large, but we are tall people and so it was nice to be able to stand straight up and walk around and not have to hunch over as with our previous dome tents. We spent a week at the beach in this tent and had no problems. There was even a severe thunderstorm that lasted about an hour one day - HEAVY rain and wind - but it held up just fine. The floor of the tent was dry as a bone, and no leaks at all. The only thing was that the fly over both ends of the tent collected rain and my husband had to run out and dump it out a couple of times. Otherwise, I say this is a great product and well worth the cost. This will be the tent we use on every trip now.

This is an awesome tent. We got it to replace our pop-up camper. I can honestly say I don't miss my camper. The tent is well designed - in fact it is perfectly designed. They thought of every detail. For example, the top of the tent is a screen, the rain fly covers it, but the ventilation is perfect and there are plastic windows in the top of the fly to let in the light. Don't want the light shining in in the morning? No problem, there are little covers that zip over the plastic window in the sleeping room. There are all kind of little features that surprised me - like a tab to step on to hold the zipper down when opening the doors. It is very rooming and easy to walk around in - no stooping. We haven't had it out in a hard rain yet, but we purchased a Eureka because of past experience with a smaller tent. This smaller tent went through several significant storms. Everyone we were camping with was soaked inside and outside their tents, howerver, our little Eureka was quite dry. This tent has been through a modest rain and was completely dry inside. The directions for assembly are equally impressive. They give you every detail you need, including tips for easiest assembly, in very understandable language. We are a bit older yet had no problem putting the tent up. I'd say the only down side is its size. It needs a fairly large flat spot. (But its size is why we bought it - we like the space). Happy camping!!

I've use this tent two times. Both times in State Parks with clear sky. My wife and I are both in our seventies and have no problem setting up this tent.
We perfer not using the fly if possible because of the great view of the stars at night. The tent divides into two 8x10 sections with a total of 7 windows and 2 exterior doors. The front room has no flooring and can serve as a sheltered sand pit or some other reason that escapes my mind right now.

I orginally bought 2 8x10 tarps and connected them with 2" wide velcro to use as a footprint to protect the bottom of the tent for my first outing. Although the front room has a 6" to 8" flap running around the interior edges, uneven ground makes it possible for something to small to crawl into the front floor area unless someing is placed to keep the flaps down. (See my solution below.)

The second trip was to a different State Park. This time it was me and our three grandchidren ages 5, 8, and 10. We met up with friends who helped with setup. The sit up process is very easy but works best with two people because the height of the tent. This time I bought a 12x16 tarp from amazon for my tent footprint (folded the extra 2 feet to make a 10x16 footprint for the size of the tent.) I then use one of my 8x10 tarps inside the front room. This sandwiched the above mentioned flaps between the ground footprint and the floor tarp - happy camper!

There is a dividing panel which serves as either a door or winow to seperate the rooms. This door can be left open or closed. Be sure to remember that there is a 6" step over when going from the front and back rooms.The back 8x10 room has an exterior door or window depending on how you want to use it.
