    I just purchased a new Wenzel Blue Ridge 14×9 by 6 high camping tent. The nice thing about this tent compared to others I have owned is that the poles once erected make the walls actually bend outward and up along the front and back, making for a roomier cabin inside. It gives the inside when looking from end to end a kind of fuselage shape like the cabin of an airplane. On the outside, it looks big but when you enter, it looks very large inside, seems bigger inside than out. The optional hanging wall attaches easily and makes for a nice room separator with a center zipper and can make a good room for another single person. With my queen air mattress inflated, there are many positions it can be placed at inside, with a lot of spare room for your inside accessories, clothes, equipment, etc. It comes with a nice roof fly that protects you from rain sufficiently. The only two drawbacks I can think of, is it would be nice if the front door awning came out a little more, and inserting the rods through the tent sleeves are a little challenging, but can become easier with a little practice. You get a couple of nice windows on each end of the tent and one attached with screen to the front door. All in all, I am very pleased with this tent and can hardly wait for summer!

    My husband took this tent on his hunting trip in Colorado, where it rains every day for 2weeks. It never leaked and he stayed warm and dry.

    A Great Family Tent for the Price, June 20, 2014

    We used our Coleman 8’x10’ cabin tent for 41 years but last year the zippers were beginning to need replacement. The replacement job would cost roughly what we would pay for a new tent. After reading poor reviews for Coleman tents (zipper problems, less waterproofing, low ceilings, selling tents with no rain fly), we decided to look at other brands. After much research, we opted for the Wenzel Blue Ridge family tent due to its roominess, good reviews and low price. Before taking it on a campout, we set it up in our backyard to familiarize ourselves with it. We followed the instructions and I’m glad that we did. The 8 plastic stakes included for the ends of the tent have already been replaced with 8 metal ones. The tent also came with 8 wire stakes for the tent sides. How long they last remains to be seen. Also, we learned long ago never to pull the corner loops extremely tight on any tent; it always damages the corners seams. We found that for us it took two people to set up the tent. Inserting and removing the four poles in the cloth tubes was difficult at first but should get easier with practice. The instructions recommended using a seam sealer on the tent’s inside seams so we order three 2-oz bottles of Gear Aid’s Seam Sure (this product was recommended by an employee at Wenzel). Per reviews for Seam Sure, I did not bother to use the brush on the top of each bottle. Instead I poured the sealer into a small tin can and used a 1” foam paint brush to apply it. This worked very well. With the tent set up, I applied it somewhat liberally but tried to avoid run-offs. I dabbed up any run-offs with a paper towel. I found that any sealer that dried on my hands was tough to wash or rub off which is a testimonial to the effectiveness of the sealer. I carefully sealed the inside seams (both sides) from the floor up to the bottom of the net ceiling. I used all three bottles of Seam Sure and barely had enough for the inside seams of just the tent and left the tent up overnight so the sealer was completely dry. I then ordered two more bottles for the rain fly only to discover when I laid the fly inside out on our picnic table that Wenzel had already sealed the inside seams with a tape which looked pretty waterproof to me. Therefore, I’ll take the two bottles with us on our next campout in case it is needed…which I doubt. It was hot inside the tent during seam sealing so I opened the three HUGE windows. Immediately a slight breeze cooled the interior. The gray floor material looked pretty thin, similar to those cheap blue tarps found everywhere. Therefore, I cut a 6-mil black plastic sheeting footprint for under the tent and a 6-mil clear plastic footprint for inside the tent. This extra protection should add years to our new tent. Finally, since we don’t use the room divider, I was able to roll the two extra plastic sheets plus the tent, poles, and rain fly into one tight roll that fit into the tent’s bag. I even had room for the tent stake bag, too. We are really looking forward to using this tent on our next campout. In conclusion, I rated only 4 of 5 stars for this tent due to the flimsy stakes and the thin floor material. I doubt that either will last without heroic care.
