With space for up to five people and their gear, the Eureka Grand Manan 9 tent is ideal for small families and groups of friends. The Grand Manan 9 is designed using Eureka's StormShield technology, which combines moisture-repelling materials with a tough, reinforced construction that resists wear and tear. As a result, the tent keeps you warm and dry for spring, summer, and fall camping. The two-pole dome tent also maximizes useable space thanks to its straight wall design, which provides 21 percent more headroom than a standard two-pole tent and 16 percent more volume. The extra space helps you accommodate cots, airbeds, and other furniture without cramping the campers inside. And no one likes a swampy tent, which is why the Grand Manan 9's full coverage fly rolls up, providing four-way ventilation that passes cool air to the interior via the low mesh vents.

Additional features include side-opening doors for easy entry; eight interior pockets to keep your essentials close at hand; a bathtub-style floor that protects against splashing and standing water; large double-point vestibules for extra gear storage; and a removable window flap that stores inside a built-in pocket when not in use.



The tent's straight wall design helps campers fit an airbed, cot, and other furniture inside.

About Eureka
Although the exact year is unknown, Eureka's long history begins prior to 1895 in Binghamton, NY, 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 19th-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 early 1940s. The company even fabricated and erected a series of IBM "tent cities" just outside Binghamton, housing thousands of IBM salesmen during the company's annual stockholders meeting, which had outgrown its previous locale. 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, renowned explorer Sir Edmund Hillary used Eureka's new and innovative Draw-Tite tent--with its practical, freestanding external frame--in a Himalayan expedition to Nepal (Hillary had climbed to the summit of 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 during the first all-American Mt. Everest Expedition, where explorers braved fierce 60-plus mph winds and temperatures reached below -20F.

Eureka introduced its legendary Timberline tent in the 1970s, targeting it to backpackers and families. The first to employ the StormShield design, the lightweight, self-supporting backpacking tent became one of the most popular tents in the industry, with sales reaching over 1 million by its 10-year anniversary. Eureka tents have also traveled as companions on other 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 years, Eureka designed and donated tents to Eric Simonson and his team. The group took two historic research expeditions to Mt. 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 by finding the remains of George Mallory, but the overall mystery remained unsolved. Returning in 2001 to search for more clues, the team found several historical artifacts that are now on display at the Smithsonian.

It's easy enough to set up & take down.
Amazon Customer
Although this would be nice on warm evenings, cooler nights might be a problem, and in my opinion these panels make this a one-season tent.

This seemed like the perfect tent for us; more than enough room but not too large. Ventilation appeared to be excellent, and it was. It's the most comfortable tent I've been in during the daytime when others can be stuffy.

But setup and take down is a pain. The sleeves are restricted in four places (two on each) to allow the fly to be attached to the frame via velcro tabs (seen in the photos as D-shaped openings). Unfortunately the restricted channels are the approximate size of the ferrules (metal tubes that attach pole sections), and each ferrule needs to be fed through individually--they won't go otherwise. It's common for the pole sections to become separated during this procedure. These challenges add a good ten minutes to setup. During take down the same thing happens; the ferrules need to be individually worked through the restricted channels. Perhaps other pole designs with smaller ferrules or none at all like some used by other manufacturers would help.

The side windows allow low ventilation and are easy to see through. They are covered by panels that fasten to the tent fabric three or four inches from each window corner. They hang an inch or so from the tent fabric thereby allowing air flow from the outside when everything else is closed up. Although this would be nice on warm evenings, cooler nights might be a problem, and in my opinion these panels make this a one-season tent. Zippered covers, like the ones on the doors, would stop air flow when desired.

On the plus side the tent features wonderful ventilation. The Grand Manan has numerous ventilation possibilities to take advantage of breezes from any direction, no matter how slight.

I've had several tents over the years and have come up with a few must haves for a car camping tent. They include a full fly, low and high windows for proper ventilation, privacy in the form of zippered or paneled windows, and a tent I could stand in. Since I was looking for a car camping tent, weight wasn't a concern. The Grand Manan is the only tent I could find under $250 that fit my needs.

The Manan weighs in at just over 20 pounds and feels like it. The tent comes in a large stuff sack and holding it by the drawstring part of the sack made me feel like I was putting too much pressure on the sack. I will probably replace the stuff sack with a duffel bag. The packed up tent is bulky though (11"X25") and takes up more space than I expected.

I setup the tent at home before heading out on our first trip. The only problem I encountered when setting up the tent was with one of the tent sleeves. The segment of one of the sleeves at the apex of the tent is just a bit too tight and you have to force each ferrule through. It's a little frustrating because it is easy to pull the pole apart when setting up and taking down the tent. Also, the tension of the cord in the poles is very loose. Taken together setting up and taking down is a little more tedious than it should be. I will probably shorten the cord to make it tighter somewhere along the way.

The pole issue not withstanding, the construction of the tent seems to be pretty solid. The zippers work well and do not get caught up in the fabric. I am 5'9 and can easily stand in the center of the tent and walk around without hitting the roof for a few feet on either side of the tent's peak. The entire rainfly is seal seamed along with the floor of the tent.

The Eureka Grand Manan 9 provides excellent ventilation, and it has window covers that offer privacy without restricting air flow. The privacy is essential at campgrounds where you have neighbors. The pole sleeves do make it slower to set up the tent, but the sleeves are there for a reason. Security, stability. When you look at photos of true mountaineering tents you will see that they all have pole sleeves rather than clips to secure the tent to the poles. The sleeves help stabilize the poles to keep your tent upright in heavy winds and heavy-weight drenching rains. After the storm you will be grateful that you had pole sleeves as you observe your neighbors staring aghast at their collapsed pole-clipped tents. The Grand Manan's mesh windows have covers that tie on rather than zip on. They will not retain interior warmth on cold days, but this is consistent with many tents on the market these days that have entire walls made of mesh; however, the other tents do not offer privacy covers over the mesh. The rain fly covers all the openings including the windows to offer a layer of warmth just as other tents do. Remember to place a thin drop cloth underneath the tent next to the ground, and position it so the edges do not stick out from under the tent. I always use a heavier tarp inside the tent to cover the tent floor to protect it from boots, and to help keep it clean. Note that the photo of this tent's cousin, Grand Manan 7, is not correct. The rain fly cannot form an awning on the Grand Manan 7, at least not on the earliest versions of that model. Also, any tent manufacturer's estimate of how many people fit comfortably in any tent should be accepted with a grain of salt. Usually only one-half of that number of folks will fit comfortably, and 2 very young children count as 1 adult.Read more ›
