Very happy camper because of this tent!

I love this tents so much I can't wait to go camping again with it. I always take my two bunniesThunda and Louise camping with me and they had lotsa room to hop around inside!! It has lots of windows and it's a breeze to take down by yourself. It took us an hour and 10 minutes the first time up, but once you get the hang of the color coded instructions, it's super easy. Our second time around set up should be about 20 minutes or less. Just don't tie the ties to the poles too tight, be sure to leave an even amount of slack on all of them. As far as the rooftop rainfly, If you're two people you can shimmy it up and over with no problem. But if you're putting it up alone, be sure to put the top on FIRST AS YOU GO UP with the tent. My only con is that I'd rather the detachable screen floor was attached all around. It's great if you want the grassy ground, but in our case I need it to be secured and closed in all around because I don't want my bunnies to get out from underneath. I'll figure out a way to attach the floor somehow. This tent is definitely worth it! We love it!

Northwest Territory Front Porch 10- person Tent

Thank you so much for the other reviews! I brought this tent yesterday, August 5th, 2012 and I took it back this afternoon after setting it up.  It took me about an hour to put up by myself, and I was very displeased with the quality and the fittings.  The directions are written so tiny you about need a magnifing glass to read them. The rain fly did NOT fit so I didn't try to force it since I read another review where they stated it had ripped in the corner.  The color coded pole attachments do not stay "clicked" in place and the tub floor does not extend to the screened porch area which was the big selling point of this tent....not taking another canopy with us.  Since we camp on Lake Keowee in South Carolina, the afternoon thunderstorms can be brutal and fierce! The only saving grace was the two young girls at the return desk at my local Kmart did not give me any trouble returning this tent. They were both very polite and sorry it did not work! Then I went to ****** and purchased a Coleman tent which was smaller but also cheaper and advertised a quick set up and rain resistant.  I know that no tent can provide 100% protection but for $260 plus dollars, I expect everything to work and fit properly.  I did take my time reading and rereading the directions and didn't force anything into place so I expect better quality.  Hope the Coleman works better as I don't want to spend my camping time setting up a tent that made me want to file for divorce against myself....thank God hubby was at work! Don't buy.....looks good which really upset me that it didn't work out...love the concept by quality is lacking!

EASY set up, strong frame, HUGE!

Awesome tent. Stood through severe thunderstorms with winds up to 70 mph & no problems. I put on seam sealer the day before the storm and NO LEAKS. There are strategically placed little drain holes in the rainfly which successfully prevented the roof from collapsing into the tent!-- genius. Let the rainfly warm up and stretch out a full day before I eventually was able to tug it over the last corner. Super tight fit but absolutely not impossible. Front porch area was perfect spot to keep items out of the elements (sun, rain, bugs, critters, etc). The detachable floor for the front porch is fine. I appreciate that the floor is optional but it moved around a lot and was always misaligned with the tent structure. Should have at least had a zipper to connect the floor or velcro or just something that would unify the optional floor with the tent. From what I can tell online, this is becoming a rare tent. Fantastic value. Looking forward to many more (hopefully thunderstorm-less) trips!!!!!

It's BIG

<p>&lt;span&gt;This tent is very big! Some people have said that it is hard to put up. Maybe the first time it is after that I was able to do it by my self. Also some people said that it did not stand up to a little wind. Well we were in Eastern Washington camping at Banks Lake and we had five thunderstorms come though in two day and had 60+ mph winds and this tent was moving around but did not tear or bend any of the polls! It was still standing after all that. So if you need a big tent and don't mind taking some time to put it up correctly this is a great tent.&lt;/span&gt;</p>

Buy Quality

<p>Save yourself a lot of time and money and get better quality if you need a tent of this size just buy a portable garage with windows  as they are made better and last longer and are on ***** for  $250 dollars with free shipping.        Good Luck, The Wolfman</p>

Cant Handle ANY weather condition

This has got to be the worst tent I have ever ever ever bought. We had very slight wind which is usual in Colorado, and the wind gets worse as the summer comes arounds. The VERY 1st trip, the windy was may 10MPH with gusts to 20-30 and the tent collapsed, spun around within itself, twisted all the bars, tore all the flaps, and was DESTROYED! What a waste of $$. $250.00 GONE! Wow... Thatnks Northwest Terr. We wont be buying your crap again!

Northwest Territory Front Porch 10-Person Tent- LOVE IT

It was a tad difficult to understand the directions to put it all up the first time but now that we've done it it's not so bad. I would also suggest putting the rain fly on before the legs are on as well, it is very tall and it's hard to get on once it's all up.

Tent is great but beware!!!!!!!

Love this tent. It has some problems, but nothing that can not be worked out. The major complaint I have is I needed a new pole support that are made out of plastic. The two numbers they give in the manual are the parts house. They are out of buissness. I was told I am SOL.

a great tent for the money

I got this tent and the first time is somewhat confusing as to set up but if you take your time, it isnt that hard to figure out. I've set this tent up several times now and two people are almost a must if there is any wind. Once up and properly staked, it is sturdy. I was in 30-35 mile/hour winds all day, and the tent held up. It is big and not designed for high wind conditions. The porch is neat and there is good ventilation with the windows down. The service at Northpole USA is great. Kellie was so helpful and sent a new rainfly immediately as the one I received had a missing grommet and a cracked hub which was also replaced. If you want lots of room and a good bang for your buck, I recommend this tent. Seam seal is highly suggested.

Nice Tent

I have owned this tent for over a year now and have used it several times. This tent is big, I would not agree that it sleeps 10 however 4-6 people can sleep on air mattress comfortably can fit 2 queen mattress even 3. The &quot;roof&quot; is tight, but if you follow directions to the T then everything goes together nicely. Folded correctly the tent with poles and all go back in the bag with no problem.

northwest territory tent not recomended

first of all the tent was very difficult to set up needs multiple people and the poles were very flimsy and kept coming apart. the first night after the tent was set up we had a storm not very big and the next mornign one of the pole attachments were completly busted the detachable floor kept coming loose and off making it a tripping hazard for our 1 year old and 3 year old and the step into the tent was also a hazard. the tent leaked in multiple different spots including the ceiling and the windows and upon taking down the tent and repackaging the tent another attachment broke and the bag seem is already spliting and coming apart. i do not recomend this tent i will be returning it.

It's a mansion!

just bought this after careful consideration and reading most of the other reviews. I decided to set it up in the yard to see if it's a keeper or if I want to send it back. The best advice I can offer is to put the rain fly on BEFORE you raise the tent. We assembled the roof poles and clipped the tent in place (you'll see what I mean when you look at the instructions). I had already read the reviews about this point (thank you to the other reviewers!), and I think it's dumb that the instructions don't tell you to do it this way also. Anyway, on goes the rain fly. I had read some people had theirs tear because it was so tight. I agree it's tight, but we allowed it to sit loosely and then clipped three of the sides and the last one we couldn't budge. We left it for about a 1/2 hour and came back to it. The warm sun had heated the fabric some and it was enough to GENTLY pull and adjust. We also decided it didn't line up right the way we had it so we swapped sides (the point that had been over the porch roof we moved to over the back door). This seemed to line up and work better, so I marked the porch side of the rain fly where there is a reinforcement piece of fabric sewn into the underside at the point so you can't see the mark but I can find it during assembly. This should save us some time next time. Once we made that adjustment, it fit perfectly. We finished putting up the tent and it is great. There are a couple of things that I can already tell I don't like. First, there are little washer looking doodads that are sewn into the sides of the rain fly - about 3 or 4 inches from the edges...I don't get this at all and it seems dumb to me. If it rains, water will go through these holes, so I have no idea why they are there. I plan to tape them from the underside so you can't see them. The other thing is the porch is not secure on the bottom so my dog will probably figure that out quickly...as will the bugs. So, I'm contemplating ways to secure the bottom. Also, the netting material on the porch seems pretty thin and I had a small snag as we were putting it together that is now a hole. We were being very careful because initially I didn't know if I was keeping the tent. So, BE CAREFUL WHEN YOU PUT IT UP because the windows are also made of this material. I read that during storms, etc., that some people had poles break, etc. I can see that might happen if it is not properly staked down...be sure to give yourself enough room to stake it once the mansion is up. It is a big tent. Also, it all fit back in its wheeled carrying bag and I also put a 12x24 tarp in with it, so that's cool. Overall, I really like the tent and plan to keep it. The fact that it is so big is great, but it's also a drawback if camping space is limited.

I like this tent

Just bought this tent and my best advice is: Put the rain fly on BEFORE you put the legs on. I think it's dumb that the instructions don't tell you this, because it's so tall that I don't see how you would do it otherwise. Anyway, it is a tight fit and we found that we had initially put the rain fly on in a way that didn't match up with the poles so we swapped sides (moved the point over the porch to over the back door) and let the sun warm the fabric a bit then we GENTLY pulled it into place and it fit perfectly. It's tall, lots of headroom, nice and big and the patio area is really cool. If you don't want the tent to break during wind, etc., make sure you have gently pulled the poles out all the way around so they are at the proper angle and stake down all sides with heavy duty stakes. Give your tent lots of room around it for this purpose...you will need it because it's so tall and big. Things we didn't like: there are these little washer looking brass doodads stamped into the edges of the rain fly. We could not figure out what these are for and it seems very dumb since rain will come through those holes. We plan to tape them on the underside so water can't come through. Also, the color coding tape is already coming off so we went around the tent and made extra markings with tape and numbers to help us the next time we put it together. It took two of us about an hour, but I think we can easily cut that in half next time since now we know what we are doing and we made additional markings. The porch can't be completely secured because there is a removable floor (I doubt I will use the floor it came with - seems weird to me because it moves and will probably be more of a pain). I have a small dog, so I have to figure out how to fix this. We set it up on a 12x24 foot tarp which was a great idea. Also, it all fit back into the wheeled carry bag - including the new tarp, so that was a cool thing. Overall, we like the tent. Really tall which seems great to us. :) Hope this review helps.

The Northwest Territory Front Porch Tent is complete junk.

I sadly purchsaed one of these made in China tents, and it did fine when there was absolutely no wind or rain. But the 2nd night, it got windy (maybe 10mph) and rained some. The tent leaked everywhere, and the 3 of the poles just snapped, (there must be around 26 or so, very hard to set up) rendering the tent useless. It pretty much ruined our first family camping trip. Now my kids say they dont want to camp anymore. Nice

LUV This Tent!

I purchased this tent last summer, for a Kern River camping trip.... It worked out better than expected.... fit 2 queen size mattresses, and still had lots of room... the patio area was a huge plus... kept dirt in tent to a minimum.

decent tent if you only camp in warm weather seasons

<p>my only problems with this tent is it can be hard to put up some of the little plastic connectors were not marked as the directions showed at first thought I had been shorted some parts but I had enough to put it up.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Problem number (2) is if you want to use this tent in cooler weather it is impossible to build up any warmth inside because the vents on top have no way of being closed off since heat rises and cold air sinks you can guess what happens.</p>
<p>Problem (3) every time I have put this tent up at least one of the places where you hook the rain fly onto the end of the poles will not go on its so tight you can not pull it up and over the end of the pole as you are supposed to butit is just one of them and the fly stays on just fine with the tie down lines staked to the ground. </p>
<p>The only leak we had was strangely enough since our cots were facing different diections were on mine and my firends faces but it wasnt much of a leak just a few drops that got blown in under the fly it was just kind of funny where they were because his cot was to the side of the front door an mine was to one side of the back door. </p>
<p>I am going to figure out some thing to close off the top vents when I dont want them open and I bet this tent will be great and see many years of use. I was thinking some self sticking velcro in long strips all the way around the vent and a small cheap tarp I can cut into the right sizes might work just fine lol.</p>
