Wenzel tents excel at making both large, family dome and cabin camping tents to lightweight 2-person tents for backpacking. The tent parts and tent poles that come with the tent are easily identifiable with standard instructions for easy assembly. These affordable and durable tents for camping are great for overnighters as well as long stays in the great outdoors.
Whether you go with a large camping tent like the Kodiak, Klondike, Big Bend or Great Basin or small camping tents like the Starlight, Lone Elk and even the Sprout kids shelter; you’ll be getting a quality tent that will produce lasting memories for you and your family. Wenzel tents are built to last and come with all the industry standard tent features that you’d expect to find in a camping tent like heavy duty polyethylene tent material and floors, shock-corded fiberglass frames, removable room dividers, waterproof rainfly, and more.
A popular 3 room family tent by Wenzel is the Wenzel Sycamore 3 room Family Dome Tent. It’s extra large measuring 18′ x 10′ x 74″ in size. This Wenzel model can be 3 private rooms or 1 large room with the 2 removable hanging room divider curtains. As with other brand outdoor dwellings, there are gear lofts for added storage of small personal items.
Another great Wenzel cabin tent for the family mentioned above is the Wenzel Great Basin. Setup is quick and easy. The large size allows room for more people and extra gear storage. Along with 2 doors and room dividers, the Great Basin comes with 2 zippered side wall windows to create greater airflow to keep you cool on those warm summer days and nights. Campers love the mesh roof so that they can see the stars at night. For greater comfort, people have placed camping air mattresses in them as well as thicker rain fly to protect from wet weather.
If you’re going for lightweight and small, you’ll want to check out the Wenzel Starlight 2-person tent. This backpacking tent was designed for hikers and cyclists. The fiberglass frame compresses easily and fits in a stuff sack that’s included. With Wenzel’s Weather Armor Protection system, this shelter has a water-resistant coating & welded, sonic-sealed floors which prevents moisture from getting inside the tent. Other features include a rear vent for added ventilation and a nylon taffeta floor. The great thing is that you get all this at 3.4 lbs.
Like many tents, there are some complaints. These include leaking tents with seams that needed to be sealed again. Also, some have commented on the rain fly on several models being too small for the tent. Additionally, there have been reports of rips and tears in the tent material that happened while setting up as instructed. Wenzel tents are backed by a 1o year warranty, but users have noted that the warranty excludes many things that may make the warranty useless in the end. Really, like any product, your mileage and experiences will vary.
In the end, if you’re looking for an affordable tent to get started in the world of camping, you should definitely not overlook Wenzel tents. Their selection of small and large camping tents is as complete as other camping brands on the market today. Check your price range and you’ll be sure to find a Wenzel camping tent from backpacking to family cabin tents that will fit your needs.
