Thread: Ozark Trail Tee Pee Tent

    Ozark Trail Tee Pee Tent

    This is newest Ozark Trail Tee Pee tent from wally world.
    This is the second one of the I have had. The first one was an earlier version (red and discontinued) where the windows zipped up from the outside. I bought that tent while out west in Missoula, Mt. couple years ago while shopping for supplies at wally world. If I recall I only payed about $40 for it on sale, had never seen one before and thought it would be fun for the grandkids to play in. We actually used it several times while on our trip. Was sort of funny but we used it while camped on the indian reservation campground outside Glacier NP.

    I paid $50 for this newer version. The windows zip up on the inside of tent, guy lines are attached to tent rather than to windows as in earlier version. I was looking for a tall tent, ran across a youtube video review of this tent where a guy put his roadstar mc in it while camping, our local store stocked it. I didn't know they had a newer version

    For the price you can't beat it. I sprayed it down with silicon water sealer as leaking is a common complaint. I should have put seam sealer on due to some leaks around the seams near the floor after spending a couple days in the rain on recent trip. In the information about the tent it says "water resistant - not intended for inclement weather"

    To put up the tent all you have to do is put 6 pegs in around the base of tent and then raise the tent and place the main pole up (shaped like an inverted V ) About as quick and easy to put up as any tent. If expecting any wind, storms, etc. it does have lines attached to tent you can stake down, I never have. Even camped outside Glacier when storm passed thru at night the tent did fine, just flapped a lot.

    If raining then rain gets in tent when you open door so I put a tarp I had with me over the door when I knew it was going to rain a lot.

    Here are a couple photos of tent from recent trip to Danier Boone NF. The tent is a tad big for bike but do able. See photo of tent on back seat of my vstrom.

    Easily. The center of the tent is 7'6". Without the bike inside I can walk around standing up, problem is all my stuff in on the floor so I just crawl around. With bike in the tent I can lay/hang stuff on the bike. If I put the bike right in the center then there is room to walk on either side of bike in the tent and stand up.

    It was sort of funny but I had my site set up before several scout troops came in for the weekend on friday afternoon, because of the rain I left the bike in the tent all day while I came and went on hikes. I got up Sat. morning and packed everything up while bike was still in tent then late morning I drove the bike out of the tent. Several guys came over while I was finishing loading up bike, they wanted to check out the bike, they had wondered why I had no car parked at my site.

    Having the bike in the tent is a nice time to check the bike for any leaks, drips, etc as its easily noticed.
