Tent Type: 3-Season
Make and Model: Eureka Kahuna
Sleeping Capacity: 6
Review: I have to agree with the previous reviews but will add some criticism and comment. There is too much ventilation and you can not close the ventilation down to what is needed for just a few people as the night gets colder. The top half of the door screens can not be sealed, so the interior can not be kept reasonably warm on a chilly night. This is a lot of screen area kept open. I woke up with a cold noggin and the inside of the tent was pretty much like outside the tent, whereas I would be nice and comfy in something like a K2. I am thinking this is some sort of liabilty issue and Eureka wanted to make sure there is always more then adequate ventilation for 6 people.
This is my only issue with the tent. It's still a great if the nights are not too cool and you want lots of room. It's a virtual poor-man's yurt. Bring in some carpet and a few chairs, etc.
I am hoping someone has a fix or technique to deal with the over-ventilation issue?
