Check Out the Alternative – Eureka Sunrise 5 Person Tent

Eureka make a top quality range of Family Camping Tents and a popular series of Dome style tents is the Sunrise Series. They are 3 Season tents which come in 4, 5 and 6 person models.

Made with a fiberglass frame that uses sleeves and clips to hold the poles in place, the tent material is made from a Polyester Taffeta and comes with a reinforced bathtub floor and a rain fly.

The Eureka Sunrise series has a cross flow ventilation design which is really important, especially when camping in hot and/or wet weather.  There are a couple of interesting design inclusions that add some extra convenience… They have included a ‘Media Center’ which is designed to take your phone or tablet in a clear sleeve that enables you to view it and is also ‘touch screen’ friendly…. A great innovation.

A lot of thought has gone into the design process, and another surprising and very useful features is the “Elluminate System” that consists of 2 triangular bright white panels on the ceiling which reflects light from an LED Lantern so that you get up to times the brightness!

Another great feature are the 2 zippered windows which provide some great views, and contribute to the excellent ventilation.  The rainfly that comes with the tent also provides some extra insurance for keeping you dry, and assisting with the ventilation in the wet weather.

Below is a good demonstration video to give you an idea of just how roomy this tent is…

The Eureka Suite V6 is a quality tent that will provide years of good family camping use!

The tent is manufactured from a 75D polyester taffeta material and the mesh is a 50D polyester that is made to minimize visibility into the tent from outside.

This dome tent is made using a unique 3-pole fiberglass frame with a bathtub style floor to help keep you dry. There are also ample storage pockets with 2 inside as well as 2 outside. This is a very liveable tent and provides some excellent flexibility when camping.

On Amazon this tent has not yet received a lot of customer ratings, but is currently rating at a 4 out of 5 stars.

Here are some reviews shared by customers…

“I hadn’t been camping in over 20 years, and that was before kids, dogs, and the need to haul gear. So when we decided to go on a 4-night trip I wanted a 3-season tent that’s big enough for the family and dogs, and would stand up to Mother Nature. This tent turned out to be an excellent choice…”

“Great rain fly that really keeps out the rain and can be opened at the front to create an awning and vestibule area. With the rain fly attached, we stayed dry during a medium rain fall. Not a drop made it into the tent. Love the snap type buckles (dog collar) that clip the rain fly to the tent – so easy to unclip when you want to let in fresh air and sunshine…”

“This style of tent has been our choice for beach camping for many years–stays fairly cool with good ventilation, guys well, cleans easily, has survived sunlight, and as mentioned holds up to severe weather…”

While there are plenty of positives, there are some negative comments as well, but nothing too serious in my opinion.

One of the customers reported that it did not have a bathtub floor, however, the product description clearly states that it does. The one thing that was mentioned by another customer, was that this was not your ‘cheap’ plastic type bathtub floor, but it is made from the same material as the tent, and it should be used with a ground sheet.

They also mentioned that all good quality tents should be used with a ground sheet, to protect against sticks etc. I would have to agree, that regardless of the tent, I would always try to use a ground sheet, even after ‘sweeping’ the area to remove objects that might damage the tent, or that might come through as an uncomfortable lump in the floor.

So either this customer was reviewing the wrong tent, or they have a different idea as to what a bathtub floor should be like in a quality tent.

Another customer said, as someone completely new to assembling tents, they found the instructions lacking, although they still managed to get it up in under 30 minutes. Of course, this is not an instant tent, but probably still quicker to set up than some of the traditional cabin style tents.
