    I was fortunate enough to speak to Kateland Stout during my phone inquire. Her family business is a success because she doesn’t like the phone calls to go to the ‘answering machine’ even if she has her children running around in the office! Now that is dedication!

    I will get free shipping and can’t wait to take this beautiful tent to Burning Man 2016! I will be sure and send a review about my experience! This is going to be the BEST Burn ever!
    Thank you Stout family and lovely Kateland

    We love our overlander tent. We bought it about 3 years ago and have used it several times. The bathtub floor has a couple holes in a crease where we didn’t fold it properly, but that was user error. The bathtub floor is great, we accidentally put it in a low spot once and it made it through the flooding until it went over the bathtub portion and then we got water, but it made it through every other rainstorm without any issues, so that was just bad placement on our part. We were basically in a stream! It is heavy duty, no screens or zippers have broken despite having our small children and their friends using it as well. We put a queen mattress, two twins and a cot plus all of our luggage in it easily, even the xxl dog kennel once (minus the cot). We also have the awning which is awesome for extra dry storage and shade. We recommend your tent and awesome company (with great customer service) to anyone who asks!

    I just returned home after a 10 day trip into the wilds of upper Wisconsin. I own the Sunforger 5000 16ft Bell Tent with the standard awning. As retired Army, I know good, heavy canvas and this tent is that and more. Twice we had high winds and storms and it didn’t budge nor leak……Not 1 drop. The zip out sidewalls to expose the bug netting clear around was a stroke of genius that kept the heat down on hot days by allowing for cross winds regardless of its direction. Very, Very satisfied with my purchase….
    Thank you Stout Tent and Carolyn Stout for manufacturing a truly superior tent

    Amazing customer service, super responsive, answered all my questions (I had many!) and helped guide me to choose the best tent for our property. We haven’t had a chance to set the tent up yet, but I would absolutely choose Stout again based on their custom service. I’m confident that if there any issues at all, that they would work with me to help resolve them, and that alone has my confidence in the product!

    Just in one word. Awesome. We put it through the ringer. Use as a base camp in NW Montana. Hot or cold. Rain or snow, it continues to serve us well. An awning is a nice addition, as well as a sunshade for hot times of the year. Floor is commercial grade, and heavy duty.

    From a tenter and outdoors person for 45 years this is a quality product, and the know how of the people that sell the product is very impressive.

    Make it in a 6 meter and I will order another.
