Best budget tents?

Post by TesticleMary » Wed Jul 03, 2019 3:20 pm

so my story is i'm flying over to a friend this year to then drive down from Oregon this year so i can't have all my gear with me on the flight but i can order a tent to be delived to his place if i find the right one online this year.
The last 2 years iv been lent a tent by friends of mine while i was camping with them, this year iv switched camps because my lead didn't think he was going this year then changed his mind last min .

im trying to find a decent size tent 4-6 person size that's not going to get super dusty because of to many vent points and something under 300$ in price , i want to invest in one of the best tents next year its just this year my budget ran tight because of alot of hardships that poped up as i was trying to save .

Thank you in advance ~ Tess

Can you have your Oregon friends find a tent with vents that can be sealed on Craigslist? The other place to ask is the Bacon "Portland Burners Trading Post" FB group which is buy and sell for Portland Burners, separate from the non-commercial Portland Burner group. No reason not to introduce yourself, but not ask to buy or sell, on that one too, it's read all over Oregon.

I have had good luck with a Coleman 6 man instant up tent. It is one of the few tents that has a solid fabric roof. With the windows and door zipped up it is good on dust and it takes wind fairly well.
