41 years of Eureka 4s and still going
June 27, 2014
We have used our Timberline 4 for 41 years and several others from Boy Scouts, friends and acquaintances. With proper care we expect our 41 year old to continue to serve well. So how do we care for it to keep it healthy? 1. Dry before packing each day. If it is wet after a too quick getaway, don't let it stay wet. 2. Stake it down. Keep different stakes for soil, sand and rocks. Prepare tie down bags for the corners if you cannot get a good hold into the land below. 3. Don't loose the plastic pole connectors. Color tape helps identify each pair per tent. 4. Practice setting up the tent solo in the dark when it doesn't matter. When you are consistently under 4 minutes setup then ready to go camping. Use 2 people in wind. 5. As a backpacker tent, divide the fly, poles, main, stakes among the hikers. 6. Re-apply waterproof from time to time before needed. 7. Don't cook inside, but eating is ok. 8. Use a ground cloth underneath and sleeping pad inside. I like it best when car camping for 2. Ours has camped on each coastline and back country from Yellowstone to the bottom of Grand Canyon. Enjoy.
Pros:
durable, very roomy for 2, sets up easily solo in most weather, drys quickly, parts divide for hikers, excellent value
Cons:
very crowded for 4 small people, if ALL parts are not together - it is not a functional tent, pole shock cord breaks frequently

Durable tent
July 7, 2014
I have been using these tents in a commercial setting for many years with kids on trail. These are the most durable and easy to set up tents I have used. Other tents may be lighter but they are more complicated to set up and have more fragile pieces that can't take the use of multiple kids over multiple summers. I would highly recommend this tent for any groups running multiple trips with school age campers.
Pros:
Easy to set up, durable, roomy (easily can fit 4 middle school campers inside), Overall a workhorse of a tent.
Cons:
Heavy, not the lightest of tents to use for backpacking. They also are a little on the large side which may be a challenge for small campsites.

Perfect for Two
July 11, 2013
I have been very pleased with my purchase of this tent. Iíve used this tent multiple times on various long camping trips in rough, unpredictable weather. The tent has continued to provide shelter regardless of the outdoor conditions. Once I find a good price for it, I am planning on purchasing another. My wife and I fit comfortably inside the tent, but I do not think that four people would. The A-frame does not allow for as much space as the dome shaped tent does. Furthermore, the vestibule is not very wide; anything that needs to be protected from the weather must be kept inside the tent. Again, that would be an issue with four people in the tent.

Great Tent, Few Cons
July 11, 2013
I really, really like my Eureka Timberline 4 tent. I would recommend it to both first time campers and experienced campers. It has proven its worth over and over. I have taken it on numerous, various outdoor activities, and it has continued to serve me well. This tent truly is incredibly durable. It can survive through moody and even extreme weather. The tent has never let me down even in windy conditions. Setting up this tent does not take long at all. You will grow faster at setting it up every time. You can also leave it free standing without the. The tent provides a large vestibule and great ventilation. Staying 100% dry in this tent takes a bit of work. You must set up the fly tightly to keep the tent waterproof. Rain can seep in or near the door. For the most part, the tent has kept me dry. It does not compress well or carry lightly, but other than that this tent works great!

Five Stars & More

I am incredibly pleased with this tent. Although it was a bit pricey, I found that the good quality of the tent more than compensated for the price.

Old Trumps New
July 11, 2013
I first used the Timberline 4 in the Ď90s. I think it is still the better deal in comparison to newer designs. The tent is lightweight yet durable. It doesnít take up too much space when packed. Yet, when set up, it has enough room for two or three adults to move around in. Although this tent doesnít have as many mesh panels like the newer tents, you can keep air circulating by opening the vents. Not having mesh siding is beneficial during harsh weather. You donít have to worry about bugs, sand, snow, or rain coming in through the mesh. This tent will stay put if you are careful to secure it to the ground. Tie down the top part of the tent with four lengths of parachute cord or rope. Use the guy-out points at the top corners, for windy conditions. This tent is a great tent to use all year round!

Purpose Built
July 11, 2013
The Eureka Timberline 4 tent closely resembles the Black Diamond Free Spirit, which is no longer being produced. I believe the material used in the Timberline is basically the same as that which was used in the Free Spirit. The Timberline has a reasonable weight-to-size ratio. However, this tent is purpose built and not made for an ultra-lite backpacker or long hikes. I think this tent is perfect for long weekend mountain camping or canoe trips. It will last long if it is taken care of well. My one complaint is that the elastic cord stretched out too easily.

Not Pleased, Returning Them
July 10, 2013
When shopping for tents for Boy Scouts, you have to make sure that you get a tent built to last. Teenage boys don't exactly go easy on a tent, so finding a comfortable tent that is constructed well is a must. After I found this tent, I thought my problems were solved. The design seemed sturdy, and since this model has been around for a while I figured that I would have no trouble finding parts to replace any that failed. Although setup was moderately easy, I was used to tents that would hold up to years of use and these certainly didn't fit that description. From day one we had problems with several aspects of the tent, starting with the zippers. The zippers were stiff and hard to move, and some of them outright broke the first time out. Since the poles are made from aluminum (unlike the normal fiberglass), the small amount of wind that we had our first night out was enough to completely destroy the structure of one. I don't know what they were thinking with this model, but they are going to be getting ours back very soon.

Big Disappointment
July 6, 2013
Initially I thought I was getting a good buy when I purchased this tent because of my previous successes with Eureka tents. My previous tent of this same model had last for over twenty years and I thought that this one should be able to do the same, but not so. The elasticity of the fly guidelines proved to be their own demise, and now I need to use bungee cords to keep the fly line secure. The customer service is poor; leading me to believe Eureka is living on their past reputation.

Nice Looking Tent
July 6, 2013
During the 1980's my family made the decision to buy a set of five tents. They do look quite nice and are quite easy to use. Sadly, when a storm hits, these tents are goners. They were pretty badly mangled, and the poles sustained damage that essentially marred them for good. Domed tents are cheaper than this tent design, and they also will do much better in a windstorm.

Quality Is Less
July 6, 2013
Bought one of these tents 15 years ago--I've been very happy with it. It still works great. Bought a second one just a couple years ago--very disappointed at its poor quality. Shock cords are already shot--frayed and ruined--on the new tent. Shock cords on the 15-year-old tent are still fine.

Not What it Used to Be
July 6, 2013
If you are replacing an older model of this same tent, you may be disappointed. I would rate this one with only three stars compared to my five-star 1980 model. The design is standard for these tents. It will only fit four people they are small and if supplies are stored somewhere else. We have been buying these tents for a number of years for our Boy Scout Troop to use. Some changes have been great like the stronger plastic tent pole attachment piece that didnít break in the cold like older models did. A change that was not good is the heavier shock cord. There are ten of these for each tent and I have had to change them all when the rubber broke inside the material. We carefully checked that the scouts were being careful, but concluded that the rubber material broke down when it happened to the Scoutmaster, too! You can order replacement cord, fasteners and even the right kind of pliers from marine suppliers. I canít give this tent a high rating like my old one.

Should Last for Years!
July 6, 2013
I have a four man tent even though just my wife and I use it. We like the extra room and think that a tent for two would restrict our movement too much. Although it can be set up by just one person, it goes so much more smoothly when two experienced people do it. Anchoring it well is important to make sure it will be stable. You may want to add two extra stakes and cord to really hold it in place. Although the stakes that are included work, I plan to replace them with up-to-date titanium stakes as needed. It rained the first time we used it and we had no leaks. The seams are taped, but it is still important to spray seam sealer from the start. You will want to use a tarp under the tent also. Although I have not had problems, I was concerned about the seam right down the center of the floor and sealed it. Two large windows allow plenty of ventilation. This tent should last for many years if it is taken care of.

Great for Bicycle Adventure
July 6, 2013
I needed a tent for the week-long great Ohio Bicycle Adventure that would be quick to put together as well as take apart and store. I had no problems with assembling this tent, even when I had to do it in a downpour. With all your gear, this tent would fit no more than two people. It also isnít tall enough to stand straight up, but was roomy enough that getting dressed wasnít a problem. In the morning, just disassemble and put everything back in the storage bag. I had a problem with rain coming in through the bottom zipper but fixed it by putting something up against the front threshold that would keep it tight. As with most tents, the bottom zipper can get jammed easily from the flap. I followed the directions about using ropes over the top when it was very windy. It worked well in all weather!
