Been looking around at tents...and stumbled upon this one.

www.eurekacamping.com/assault_out.asp

I want something sturdy that will last, this one seems to fit the bill. Any opinions? Something else similar that I should look at in the $200-$250 range?

Looking at 4 person tents. Unlikely to be backpacking it, if so not far.

By chance do you have a el-cheapo source other than ebay?

Thanks!

I did a month in Southern Siberia in a Eureka tent. They aren't bad, but mine did split and aluminum sleeve on a pole about two weeks in. Thank god I always packed a role of duct tape.

I still have the tent and use it occasionally.

Make sure that you take a look a Sierra Trading Post for other options. I live about an hour and a half from the store and I have seen many Mountain Hardware and Marmot tents there in the $200-$250 price range which I would consider before the Eureka.

ETA -- I know that you were looking for a four person tent, but this Marmot tent, IMHO, would be a great 2 person tent for the money.
