The Timberline SQ 4XT tent from Eureka sleeps 4 and is a classic tent updated with the latest in frame technology. The 4XT adds a storage vestibule built right onto the front of the tent and a second door for convenience and improved ventilation. The Timberline series has been famous for years as the Scout's tent of choice, Why? Because of ease of set up, durability and reliability. Well Eureka just made it better with a stronger and easier to set up aluminum frame set. The frame is so tough that Eureka began to compare it to the strength and durability of the giant Sequoia tree and the name stuck (SQ). A stronger, thicker ridge pole and the SQ frame's spreader pole not only increase overall frame strength but adds more usable living space to the interior of the tent. Improved ventilation with the addition of 2 generous roof vents mean long humid tent nights will be much more comfortable than in the past. In addition Eureka has lengthened the side of the fly for even more coverage and added vestibule wings to the rear of the tent to protect the 2nd door from weather. Some of the good old parts remain like the use of RipStop materials on the fly for strength and worry free use. This is a classic tent and it just got better.

Excellent as always!

Had a Eureka for over 32 years but had to retire it, as it had seen better days. I originally purchased the old 4x in 1980 for use on a motorcycle trip to the west coast with a friend when we go out of the military. It served us well on a nearly one month trip. Then my sons and I entered Boy scouts. Our troop to this day uses Eureka 4x's exclusively for all outings as well as for high adventures to Canoebase and Philmont. One scout can pitch an older style Eureka 4x on their own w/o help. I purchased this one to use at an upcoming international camporee and very pleased with its usual quality and spaciousness. Again, the previous models could easily be setup by one person. This new 4x model I find takes 2 people to setup. My sons who are Eagle Scouts helped me with the first time setup of this when I received it. They are well adept to pitching a 4x tent individually and agreed that this new model was less user friendly in setup. Plus all of us debated what was the front vs back of the rain fly, as it does not clearly delineate. Regardless, it's still a beautiful tent and would not purchase any other brand.

Love this tent

Having used a 4 person Timberline for years, I bought another Timberline when it came time to replace it. I was initially disappointed when I received this tent because it is bigger and heavier than the one it replaced. I must say that I camp and travel mostly by motorcycle, so size and weight matter. That being said, I must say I love this tent. I only use it when I'm going to be somewhere for more than one night as setup and teardown is time consuming, but once it's up it is worth the effort. Plenty of space for 1 or 2 people, good ventilation, fly gives good weather protection, good amount of headroom, built in vestibule adds storage space and helps reduce clutter. Throw away the included stakes and buy some better quality ones. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because I don't know about it's overall durability yet. Only time and use under varying conditions will tell that. If you are a casual camper this tent won't dissapoint.

Good tent - good price - good quality

This tent has performed well. I was able to use the tent on 4 multiday river rafting trips as well as one backpacking trip. Although the tent is heavy for a backpacking tent, we used it as our "lounge" and slept 3 people and a Labrador inside. There was plenty of room and the tent kept us dry and playing cards late into the night. It is very easy to set up and dry's quickly after getting wet. The tent is constructed well for the weight.

I would suggest getting some additional stakes. There are four decent stakes that come with the tent, but I reccomend you need at least four more. The rest of the stakes work OK to stake extra tie downs, but are insufficient for the tent itself or the vestibules.

great tent

Replaced my old Timberline 4 from the '80's. This tent is super well built. First time out I was caught in a big 12 hour thunderstorm with 30+ mph winds. Not one problem the whole times. I was really surprised at how much better it was than my old one. (which I knew was tough)I'm very happy with this tent.
I should also like to mention that a very large tree limb fell on the end of the tent during the storm. It bent the end support rods but nothing else was damaged. This tent is really tough.

Only getting better

I have an old 4 man Timberline that's over 20years old. This is a big improvement from the older models.The factory seam seal eliminates the yearly resealing. The heavier poles will help keep the frame from bending,BUT,if you even suspect it might get windy while using any A frame tent,make sure you use all of the guy out points. Those big flat sides can put a huge load on the frame,and the poles at the corners Will twist and bend if enough load is applied.Overall an excellent casual use tent,just leave it home during the winter!!

great tent for price.

i have owned by original for over 30 years and i am just now looking to buy due to a zipper starting to fail. but it has been on many backpacking trips. week long in high country of colorado. has held up in rain, lightning storms (lower elevations then us), light snow, use by boys and adults, storm winds at above the timberline and etc. has been a great tent. little heavy but for price, it is a good tent. looking to buy my second one after 30 plus years.
Hairy Cowboy at Campmor on 10/10/2011

New and Improved Timberline

The tent is easy to set up and roomy considering of course that this is a 4 man tent that you can't stand up in. I bought it for scout camp outs and it worked well for a week at summer camp. It's a little heavy for backpacking, unless 2 or 3 people are sleeping in 1 tent and sharing the load. I'm extremely satisfied and my son wants my tent now, so I'll probably give him this one and get a new Eureka tent.
Mike the old scout at Campmor on 07/07/2012

Rated VERY highly

We had the original Timberline 4 for 20+ years and it finally got tired. With this tent, Eureka has perfected the a-frame design. I worried I wouldn't be able to 'stash' the vestibule when I didn't want it but it's a non-issue. You can't beat this tent for easy, quick setup. It has generous room for us two, which is the way we used our old Timberline 4. We haven't discovered any faults with this tent; Of course, it's too heavy for backpacking.

Great Tent

Well the first cub scout event called for a new tent and this was the one I picked. Looked at several models and this one came with the best reviews. Went up fast in light wind (10-15 MPH gusts). Survived in and outs all day of 5-7 year olds and was good to sleep in in 38-40 degree weather with a little rain. No problems at all noted.

bought as gift

recent timberline purchased as gift because I know how well made and sturdy it is. have owned a timberline for 10 years and camp on the outer banks of NC 5 times a year, other camping is with boy scouts. Tent has held up great through storms, kept me dry. UV rays finally affected material. Bought new rain fly and poles, we now use it as spare.

Frame needs to be more durable

This tent was used by my daughter, a professional guide living in Haynes, Alaska. It is larger, comfortable, and served as her home for a summer season. Despite the beefy frame, however, it failed by the third week. Splinted, it slowly disintegrated over the course of the summer, probably due to the winds. A good tent for casual use, but not with extended use in tough conditions.
