Summary: Favorable Reviews

People who bought the tent indicated: It has both plastic and metal pegs included, you will need to use them as small gusts could blow the shelter down. It can be a bit of a wind tunnel at times.


Teal Thumbs Down Logo

Summary: Unfavorable Reviews

Campers who have used the tent said: The instructions are self-explanatory and easy to follow, large screen room for lounging in. Appears to be well made and sturdy overall. One can stand inside comfortably inside. The fly protects from sun and rain, while the screened tent keeps the bugs at bay.

SPECS AND CONFIGURATIONS

The NoBugZone 8 Screenhouse has four windows and two doors and a peak center height of 7' 8, which is 10 inches more than the average height of the 57 various 8 person tents we have examined With 108 square feet of space inside, it is considerably smaller than some other 8-person tents, and it would be quite cramped for you and, up to seven other campers during the 3-seasons, this tent is recommended for use in, larger tents similar to this one are a good choice for families that welcome having lots of room inside the tent for sleeping and hanging out.

A few of the fantastic points about shelter tents are, that they are under normal circumstances not too heavy, making them simple to carry. In most all cases, tents used for backpacking are of the shelter type. They are generally speaking, freestanding and very simple to set up. In good weather, you could do without securing the tent with stakes and ropes, not that this is suggested.

Shelter tents are easily the most common of all the various sorts of tents you will see when camping. They tend to fair better in bad weather than other types, allowing rain to roll off the sloped sides, unlike cabin tents that have flat roofs, allowing the rain to pool on the top of the tent. The simplest shelter tent should have a square floor, slanted sides a couple of poles which cross in the center of the roof. Due to the way they are made, it is typically considered that they are best suited for up to a maximum of 6 people.

Down below, you can check out a list of the tent's strongest and weakest points.

Click or Tap on the Tab you Want to See!

PROS

  1. Freestanding. The NoBugZone Screenhouse can support its own weight on any terrain. It does not even have to be staked down in most cases. But in case of strong winds, it is always best to secure it to the floor with the included steel stakes and guylines.
  2. Plenty of Headroom. With 10% more headroom than similar size tents, one can easily count this as a plus.
  3. Internal storage. It is nice to see Eureka has added a gear loft and pockets in the interior to store some of your stuff.
  4. More than one door. With 2 doors, it is easier to get in and out of the tent, in the middle of the night if needed.
  5. More than one window. With 4 windows it is easier to keep the tent cooler on a hot summers night.
  6. Breathable. The NoBugZone's interior uses a mesh fabric on the inside of the tent, and this helps maximize the flow of air. With the extra ventilation, and this tent is great for use in the summer.
  7. Other sizes are available. Eureka has also made this model available in Other Sizes.
  8. Low price. It is a great deal for a 8 person shelter tent providing this much room. Not a lot of tents available on the market provide this level of quality for only $199.95

CONS

  1. Susceptible to wind. Because of its size and shape, the NoBugZone may not do best in strong winds if it is not firmly secured with the provided guy lines and stakes. Even though the tent is listed as freestanding in all but very calm conditions, one would need to stake and tie it down correctly.
  2. Not roomy. With a floor area of 108 square feet, the NoBugZone 8 is smaller than quite a few of the 57 other 8 person tents we have looked at.
  3. Only one room. The NoBugZone is suggested for 8 campers, some other tents of a similar size have more than one room allowing for a little more privacy.
  4. No Vestibules. If you want to keep your dirty shoes, clothes, and backpacks protected from the rain etc, you must store them inside the tent.
  5. Footprint not Included. There is no included footprint, The floor may be made of tough fabric but it is still best to protect it further with a footprint, more so on rough terrain.

CONCLUSION

4.6 Stars Logo

Our Ratings: 4.6 STARS

Eureka's NoBugZone 8 Screenhouse tent is suitable for car camping. There are a few other things not already mentioned above which, we noticed and liked, while reviewing the model: The NoBugZone Screenhouse provides protection from biting insects, burning sun, and a passing shower, Near-vertical sides provide ample shade and more interior space and No-see-um mesh provides plenty of ventilation while defending against the tiniest critters.

With fantastic ratings, a decent amount of reviews and a center height of 7' and 108 square feet of space for sleeping, this tent is like your very own modest mansion. It will enable you together with 6 other friends to enjoy some real quality moments enjoying nature. We found a decent amount of pros about the tent that you can check out above.

If you found this website looking for recommendations on this specific tent, we consider, it should make for an awesome acquisition. If you simply happened to land on this website while browsing for a brand new tent having never heard of this manufacture or this model previously, it is possibly a good idea to look at some other similar tents.

Value for money: In terms of value for money, this tent is without a doubt cheaper than the average price of all the fifty-eight, eight-person tents we have taken a look at, this alone by itself does not make it excellent value for money. One should also take into account other areas in-depth, as we do with each tent.

When we tally up the score of a single tent, we reflect upon a lot of stuff, searching for points where the tent could beat other comparable tents and where it is lacking. On this occasion, with a total rating of 4.6 and the price info above, It is simple enough to see that with a cost of $199.95 The NoBugZone 8 Screenhouse is an excellent purchase and astonishingly cheap in comparison with similar tents.

The overall score shows that the quality and dimensions the tent offers were not in any way skimped on to finish up with a price tag well under the normal price for similar tents. It will make a superb choice for most campers looking for a comfy three-season shelter tent to go camping with, that should serve you well for years to come.
