Great Tent!

After 13 years of service, we needed to replace our beloved 2 pole tent, one that had camped from coast to coast and all around the Great Lakes (we're from central WI). I wanted the same thing, and the Eureka Sunrise presented a great value. I wasn't paying attention to the dimensions, and simply ordered the largest one, and large it is. Rather bulky and heavy, but that really isn't an issue for car camping, even in a Toyota Camry. It's very sturdy, and held up in some serious winds on the shores of Lake Superior. It's incredibly easy to set up - we're like a pit crew, under 8 minutes. Very spacious aslo: slept two adults, a 17 yr old, and a 12 yr old comfortably on two queen size air mattresses with room to spare for bags, etc. A great deal.

Great choice for family camping

This is the perfect tent for our family of four. It fits a queen air mattress and two twin mattresses for our sons with some room leftover for our duffels. Not a lot of walking around room after that but we don't need it. The high ceiling, four big windows and more vertical sides make it feel airy and roomy. It is easy to set up--my husband and I can get it up in 15 minutes. The floor is heavier material than most and the rain fly is excellent. We seam sealed the tent and it rained the second night we used it and not one drop got in the tent.

I did a lot of research before purchasing this tent and we are really pleased.

extremely happy!

We have used this tent for over 14 years. It fits 2 queen size air mattresses and a med. size dog crate easily! We often camp for 16 days at a time and move from site to site as we travel. This tent has served us well as a family of 5 plus a dog. We will be purchasing another one ASAP.
It can be set up and torn down in about 10 min. with 2 people. Even 2 10yr. kids can set up by themselves.
in a tremendous wind storm in Utah, our friends tent collapsed and took on major water. ours did not. We were dry and our tent still stood with no damage. They had to return their tent. not Eureka of course...

Easy up & Spacious

I grew up camping in a Eureka dome style tent, I'm now 29 and decided it was time to stop borrowing my parents and get my own. This tent has exceeded my expectations as they've improved the design and added great organization on the inside. I'm a little O.C.D. so I like having a place to put everything. I use a North Face road runner for backpacking, but wanted this tent for family/car camping. Easy to set up, very spacious, and the quality I've come to know by Eureka!

Comfortable, waterproof, sturdy reliable

We have been camping at a campsite every year for the last 20 yrs and the only tent we have been consistantly happy with is this model. The bathtub floor really is waterproof when everyone else is swimming during rainy evenings and it is simple to set up, even by kids. You can stand up when getting dressed and plenty of room for big air mattresses. I bought 3 of them due to the size of our family and the previous versions lasted a long time.

Like having a portable gazebo

Good for long term set up. To make last use a heavy duty ground cloth. Pay attension to zipping & unzipping as zipper is lite duty. One person can set up with some difficulty, 2 is better. Take your time & don't rush set up or take down. I plan to get 2, 11'x 5.5' foam back carpet pieces for the floor, this should make the sunrise 11 a home away from home :) I Love it! Good Luck!

Great family tent!

We took this on our first family camping trip on the shore of Lake Superior. On our second night there a serious storm came in - but we stayed perfectly dry in spite of all the rain. This is a great tent - I can't wait to take it out again. You do need two people to set it up, though, since it's so large.

Awesome Tent

Excellent tent! Only used once so far, no rain. However, it is a comfortable tent in cool weather with a blanket over the roof vents. Very spacious for 4 people. Fits two queen size airbeds side by side with about 5 feet to spare from the front of the tent to the foot of the air mattresses. Very sturdy and well built.

Great Medium Size Tent

I have three tents, 10 x 18 Family Cabin from Cabela's for sleeping 2 adults and two kids with Cotts, Backbacking Grand Mesa 4 Kelty 7' x 8' Adult and one child, bought this tent for Boy Scout leader tent. It is the same quality as my other tents, easy setup, well vented, tall without shelf.

Terrific tent

Very roomy with lots of ventilation. A grown adult can stand upright in the middle. A perfect solution for a small family that car camps in warmer climates. Easy to setup. The window/vents at the very top of the tent are nice for anyone who likes to stargaze before drifting off to sleep.

Negative Reviews:

More kite than tent

Eureka gained a god reputation starting in the 1960's for their wind-proof and weatherproof designs and constrution.

In my opinion, the Sunrise does not live up to that reputation. This is Eureka's answer to family car camping tents - big, roomy: yes, those things.

However, the fly literally is a kite. When you assemble the cross-poles and stretch out the fly, it is nothing less than a giant kite. This kite perches precariously on top of the tent like a graduation cap. Flimsy elastic cording and four prayful clips hold this kite rainfly onto the tent.

The truth is that any amount of wind will turn the Sunrise into a giant whirlygig and a nightmare for those inside relying on the tent for protection from the weather. Sunrise tents after storms look like victims of bear attacks - literally shredded to ribbons.

This tent is OK if you can be assured that you will not face any wind - maybe if you always camp in heavily forested areas with lots of big trees all around to block the wind.

Frankly, for the money, Eureka and other manufacturers have much better designs than the Sunrise.

NOT a three season tent as advertised

wind goes right thru the tent,hard to set up alone. WISH I COULD RETURN IT.

16+ years

Bought this tent when youngest son was born. He's 16 now. Waterproofing is all but gone, fabric is thin and tears easily -- embrittlement -- floor and fly now both leak significantly. Replaced the poles 8 years ago because the metal joints deformed, Yes, they are heavy. Zipper on door has worn out possibly from the tension in it due to curve design. Replacement parts not available. Because this tent is tall and wide and shows a lot of side, a good summer thunderstorm will flatten the tent without causing collapse or blowing away fly, but its a scary experience to be in there with tent side pressed to your face in high wind situation (I suppose it's better than the alternative). Pole thru sleeve suspension design a pain in the neck to set up and take down. Tent is roomy (maybe too much so, comment about difficulty finding level smooth place to set it up that is large enough is true). It is roomy and airy. 4-side windows very nice. Looks handsome. For the most part lasted and held up well. Maybe 16 years is too much to ask.

Mixed results compared to others

My husband, my family and I have been camping for decades with scouts and recreationally. Good things about this tent were spacious and well-ventilated. We are six feet tall, need cots and we had plenty of room. Bad things about this tent were the weight of the poles (fiberglass) and the REALLY inadequate coverage over the front door from the fly. Both because there is a low vent, and that the fly does not have rod support to brace it out in front of the door, we were obliged to put a long tarp over the tent to keep the rain away from the door. I have never had to do this with flies that have the 2-rods supporting it out over the front door. Too bad. Also, the bathtub floor is nice and high but the material is not adequately heavy. Be sure to use the best groundcloth you can afford or you will get a hole in the floor.

A few design deficiencies

It was very waterproof right out of the box without doing any seam sealing.
There are four annoying aspects of the tent: 1. The front door zipper is annoying because there is a zipper across bottom and a second zipper that curves up side and across top. It takes two hands to operate either zipper.They need to add a tent stake loop under the zipper closed position so that the whole tent doesnt lift up when you try to unzip. 2. The fly is a pain to install requiring assembly on the ground (if you can find a place to do it)then trying to position it over the tall tent. 3. If you snap everything together as directed, the front door is under such tension that it stresses the zipper...probably wont last like that.4. 11 ft by 11 ft is too big to fit many park service tent pads. Otherwise, its a decent tent.

ITS A NICE TENT

MY WIFE LIKES IT BECAUSE OF THE EASY SET UP, BUT THE RAIN FLY ISNT BIG ENOUGH. IN COLORADO I PUT A TARP OVER THE SCREEN ON THE ROOF TO KEEP THE HEAT IN AND IAM GLAD I DID BECAUSE IT RAINED ABOUT FOUR INCH's
