SPECS AND CONFIGURATIONS

The Northern Breeze Screen House 8 has two doors and a peak center height of 8' 5, which is 19 inches more than the average height of the 54 other 8 person tents we have examined With 144 square feet of room inside, it is a little bit larger than some other 8-person tents, and it should accommodate you and, up to seven other campers during the 3-seasons, this tent is approved for use in, larger tents similar to this one generally make a really good choice for groups who welcome having loads of space for sleeping and hanging out.

One of the good things about cabin tents is, that the sides are near vertical creating a generous interior, this gives you a lot more headroom at the sides of the tent, making it feel much bigger than a dome tent, they also, have a larger sleeping area making them great for families. Normally cabin tents are used by people going on a camping trip in a car or a truck as they are quite heavy when compared to dome tents. That dose though make them well suited to cooler nights.

PROS

  1. Freestanding. The Northern Breeze Screen House 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 space. With a center height of 101 inches (more than 6 feet) and a floor area of 144 square feet, the Northern Breeze Screen House gives you a lot of space. Most adults can stand inside the tent without ducking their heads.
  3. Tons of Headroom. With 19% more headroom than similar-sized tents, one can easily count this as a plus.
  4. Internal storage. It is good to see Eureka has added a gear loft and pockets in the interior to store some of your gear.
  5. Has awnings. The awnings protect the sides of the tent.
  6. 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.
  7. Remarkable Ratings The Northern Breeze Screen House 8 has some of the best ratings of all the tents on optimumtents.com
  8. Low price. It is a great buy for a 8 person cabin tent providing this much space. Not a lot of tents available on the market provide this level of quality for only $549.95

CONS

  1. Susceptible to wind. Because of its size and shape, the Northern Breeze Screen House may not do well 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 want to stake and tie it down correctly.
  2. No windows. With no windows it is not simple to keep the tent ventilated on a hot summers night.
  3. Only one room. The Northern Breeze Screen House is designed for 8 campers, many 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 elements, you must keep 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, especially on rough terrain.
  6. Out of Stock. Unfortunately this particular tent is not currently in stock. It is still on the manufactures website the last time we looked.

CONCLUSION

4.7 Stars Logo

Our Ratings: 4.7 STARS

Eureka's Northern Breeze Screen House 8 tent is really good for car camping. Here are a few other things not already mentioned above which, we found and liked, while researching the model: Sized to fit a picnic table inside or beneath the built-in wind/rain curtains, Vertical side walls maximize interior space and Quality, shock-corded 7/8 - 1 inch diameter aluminum frame is long lasting.

With fantastic ratings, tons of reviews and headroom of 8' and 144 square feet of space to enjoy, this tent is like your very own small mansion. This will enable you and up to 7 other friends to enjoy some real quality moments exploring the great outdoors. We found a decent amount of pros about the tent that you can study above.

If you found this website looking for recommendations on this specific tent, we consider, it will make for a very good buy. In case you simply happened to land on this website while looking for a brand new tent having never heard of this brand or this tent before, it is probably a good idea to check out a few more comparable tents.

Value for money: In terms of value for your dollar, this tent is cheaper than the standard cost of all the fifty-five, eight-person tents we have looked at, this alone does not make it good value for money. We also need to look at other areas in-depth, as we do with every tent.

When we tally up the overall score of a tent, we reflect upon a lot of areas, searching for things where the tent could outdo other similar tents and where it is lacking. On this occasion, with a total score of 4.7 and the price statistics above, It is simple enough to view that with a price of $549.95 Eureka's Northern Breeze Screen House 8 is a very good bargain and competitively priced when compared with similar tents.

Its overall score shows that the quality and space the tent provides were not in any way skimped on to finish up with a price tag well below the average price for comparable tents. It will make a fantastic choice for nearly all people looking for an appropriate three-season cabin tent to camp with, that should serve you well for years to come.
