I had a chance this Saturday to try out my new gazelle tent. One of the reasons I picked this tent over a roof top tent is: we always camp/overland with are dog, I don’t have to space nor do I want to leave a tent on my roof all the time, and overall cost.
My other tent is just a Coleman 6 person. But it was time to upgrade. Right off the bat, you can tell the materials are much better than my last tent. It honestly only took about 5 mins to set up and take down. Which is amazing when it used to take almost 30 mins to fit my last tent back into its bag. I was able to fit a queen size blowup mattress with room to spare. Its so tall that even a guy who is 6’2” can stand in it.

The only down side of the gazelle tent is how big the tent is in the the bag. My Tacoma only has a 5 foot bed and the tent is about 5 1/2 feet long in the packaging. So I had to lay the tent at an angle to be able to close my tail gate.

All in all I’m very happy with this tent. And can’t wait to use it again.

Awesome thank you for the feedback. I am looking forward to getting one and getting out with it.

I have a Gazelle, its ok. Spacious and quick to set up for sure. Broke a pole the third time I set it up. Still waiting on customer service to help me out with it. For the price, I expected it wasn't going to be an amazing tent, so I'm not that worried.

Chris, How long did it take customer service to make good on the warranty claim?

I never followed up, the poles are only a few bucks and I wanted to get a couple spares anyway so I just bought 3. They shipped em out quick and it only cost like 10 bucks total.

Has anyone had one out in heavy wind or rain? The quick pitch seems kind of cool but the fly and window design does not look to make it water tight in a windy rain. Though for the summer here looks nice.

I'm curious about rain too. I'd have to either buy two or the t4 plus because... kids. But I have my doubts once the rains come. But I also end up being the only one setting up the tent because... kids, so making it easier on me would be huge.

It did alright in the rain for me. It wasn't terrential but it was steady and the inside stayed dry.

I need to replace a basic Coleman tent, and I think for the price I may go with the T3. It’s usually just me and my son camping so the T4 would be a bit extreme. Plus I like the smaller footprint of the T3 fitting it inside my 4Runner.
