Ozark Trail Tents

12 posts in this topic

Anyone familiar with this brand of tent?

I'm just looking for a 2-3 or 3-4 person tent

but don't want to spend alot. This is a

brand they carry at Walmart.

I know a few folks that have them. They seem pretty nice. Set up and take down pretty quick. No complaints of leaking that I know of. I would not hesitate to buy one.

Not sure about them. Walmart's home brand I think.

If you get one, seal the seams really good.

How often do you plan on using it? Sun is something that can also do a number on tent fabric. Cheaper tents don't resist the uv damage as well.

If you don't like it, Walmart will take it back.

Thanks for your opinions. I think I'll go buy it.

Probably only one more trip this year anyway.

(18th annual chili feed outside Ellsworth)

Not like I'm going to be using it for

winter camping.

Let us know what you think of it once you use it.

It might already have the seams sealed. A lot of them do that now.

And if I don't know if they're sealed? Should I just in case?

And if so, how? Looks like there may be rain this weekend.

I would definitely buy a can of seam seal and spray all seams

The seam sealer I've used works like a big marker. You just apply it to the seams.

The sprays are not a seam sealer. They add waterproofing to the fabric. You shouldn't need to do this with a new tent, but one that is older may benefit by it.

And I could get seam sealer somewhere like Gander? or REI? or??? Is it specifically for tents?

I have an Ozark Trail tent and love it. I've used it for a number of years, in rain, and never had any problems. It sets up super easy and has lots of unique little features. I'd recommend it to anyone.

Well there you go! I say go buy it and enjoy this great weather!

Oh ya, Walmart should have seam sealer in the camping dept. Otherwise, Gander, Fleet Farm, REI - they all carry it.

    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.

    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
