Default Coleman Sundome Elite 6P

First trip in this tent, glamping Labor Day weekend at Elk Neck SP (Maryland). We had a little thunderstorm Saturday am, no leaks in my tent (nor my son's 8P Ozark Trail tent). This is without any additional waterproofing, so both tents did well with rain. Neither tent was fully staked out, nor all guylines used due to setup on driveway. Here are a few pics.

Wow it's a luxury camp setup! I wish I could take it all in my backpack. Too bad you have to think about the weightsavings when you're hiking without a car.

Thank you, it was definitely glamping, and true, cannot be accomplished by backpack.

I am more accustomed to pop up camper camping, however have had on and off again experiences with tent camping, but I need some luxury, lol. I don't think I'd have what it takes to go backpacking, at least not unless I had to, especially as I get older.

We have "glamped" a few times in Elk Neck SP. The ground is full of ledges and boulders. I'm glad I had my lag screws with me as I would have never gotten regular tent stakes in that hard pan.. It is a nice park and your set up looks great!

Thank you! So that explains the trouble we had with securing some of the pegs, lol. I had eve purchased replacements stakes for my tent, and a few spare, but purchased the screened house much later, so had to use what came with it, my spares and what I couldn't use on my tent due to pitching location were used on my sins tent. My son didn't purchase replacements for his, but I highly recommended that he do so before his next camping trip.

I wouldn't use anything except the lag screws unless I were camping in sand. Easy in in most cases with the portable drill and easy out.

WoW! Just like freeLander78 said, it's a luxury setup! By looking at it I get the feeling that I could live like that for quite a while.

Thanks John! I was going for luxury, going from pop up back to tent, I was a bit spoiled. So I was going for a suite-tent setup, and needed a place to use my coffee maker (like the convenience of them), so I bought a special folding table for my brew station, lol. Just using a higher air bed with regular sheets, a few tables and rugs, it was easy to set up lux-style. This tent makes it easy with its bells and whistles: hinged door, 3way light fixture with wall switch, and the auto-roll windows.

Thanks, I hope to get a few years of use out of it.
