This Wenzel, 8-person Klondike tent is ideal for car campers that want some comfort and extra space for relaxation with family and friends. Perfect for those that prefer some extra room for storage or to relax with a cool breeze (while zipping out the bugs), the screened in portion of this tent provides plenty of space for privacy, alongside proper protection from the elements within the main tent area. Plus, with easy set up and tear down instructions, you’ll have plenty of time to relax and have fun in the great outdoors!
While this large Wenzel tent provides plenty of space for family to relax, its large size does make it an issue for backpackers due to its heavier weight. Additionally, this Wenzel tent is not ideal for those campers that might have to handle inclement weather. The walls and tent pins are not hefty enough to handle strong winds or heavy rain, which means that it isn’t an ideal choice if you know you’re going to be handling some more extreme weather during your camping excursion.
Though, if comfort and space are your priorities, then this Wenzel 8 person Klondike tent delivers. It provides plenty of space to move around, a screened in area for storage or extra living space, and is incredibly easy to set up and tear down. While it is not designed for inclement weather, this tent definitely fulfills its promises and is an ideal choice for the right family.
