We purchased this tent to upgrade our car-camping setup. We previously had a 6-person dome tent that needed to be replaced after more than a decade of consistent use. We chose the Wenzel Klondike 8 because of the two-room layout. Last summer we did a fair amount of camping and I sometimes found myself wishing for a space where we could eat, play games, or read that was just a little less accessible to mosquitos or light rain. I look forward to setting up a small seating area in the front room of the tent on those occasions. We typically keep our shoes just outside the tent so we don’t have stinky sneakers in our sleeping space, and I do get paranoid about spiders, snakes, and scorpions finding their way into the shoes during the night – with the tent’s layout, we can keep shoes and bags in the front room. I could also see the front room being a good place for pets to spend some time drying off before entering the interior tent. The front room does have screens as well, so it could be used as sleeping space, but that’s not my intention.
The height is great – the front room is not quite tall enough to stand up in, but it works great for sitting. The main room is tall enough to stand and change in, and I like that this tent is tall even at the edges, where one will actually end up changing once a mattress is in place in the center. The drawback of the height is that it can be a sail in the wind. The wind did pull out some of the stakes because the ground was too soft. If there will be any wind, definitely use as many stakes as possible. There are loops at each of the vertical poles, and in the future, I will likely add more guy lines and stakes to diversify the angles and keep it anchored. It was windy while we were putting up the tent and I was a bit nervous about the strength of the tent poles that cross at the top of the tent. Once the tent was up, I was no longer worried, but they seem like they go through a lot during the set-up process, and I hope they will last.
It was more difficult to set up than our previous tent, but it is also twice as big and has a taller and more complicated design, so that was to be expected. Unlike some other tents we have had, it does require two adults for some portions of the set-up. Taking it down, I did manage to get everything folded up and back into the bag it came with, which is a minor miracle. It did take two attempts.
The bottom line is that this tent is spacious, tall, and the layout is great for our needs. I would probably not go to the trouble of putting it up for just a one-night stay (or in extra windy conditions), but it’s worth it for most car-camping trips. Ela H. on Mar 30th 2021
I loved this tent! It was easy to set up just by looking at the picture on the front of the bag. There is so much room inside, both to stand up and to sleep. I love the box shape for that reason. It help up well in high winds, just make sure you point the front of the tent into the wind or else the whole side catches the breeze. Stakes held it down well. The only improvement I would suggest would be to include guylines, although this is pretty easy to do on your own. The mess side panels offer a cool feel, both aesthetically and temperature. Plenty of space to sleep. I haven't tried it in rain yet, but I have seen a number of reviews suggesting to treat the outside with waterproofing chemical which I intend to do as well. Great product!

I bought this tent for its design and price, and it is my favorite camping tent! I've even been able to set it up by myself. You can stand and walk around in the covered part and then we keep supplies and messy stuff in what I call the "screened in porch" which has a floor and all windows can completely zip up for sleeping.
One of my favorite things about this tent is the divider wall w/ door that separates the two rooms. The door is circular so you have to step up more to get through, but is easier to zip. Also, I always bring my dog who is able to walk around inside the tent where there is plenty of room for my 2 cots, a table, rug, cooler, etc. Jessica U. on Mar 25th 2020
I've had this tent now for about 3 years. It's seen it's use... I lived out of this tent for a couple months traveling the U.S. with my 3 large dogs. The extra room made it perfect for me and them. As a single person, I've been able to set this up and take it down no problem. The first time, you want someone to help you. This is a great tent for families or long camping trips with lots of gear. I've even put this up in the rain and wind and it's held well. Tofuitti on Jan 7th 2020
