I purchased a Hub 3 and used it on a recent trip to SE Utah. Tte tent is as advertised, well constructed, sets up and comes down easily. From what I can see great construction and at 5'10" I can stand upright in it. Should last a long time with care. Only downsides as metioned by others, it is heavy and large, not a backpacking tent and because of the X frame construction, the entry / exit doors are small for tents this size.

Wait wait wait, 5'-10" people will have to stoop over even in the center of a T3 Gazelle tent. Here are the specs for a T3.

Getting out into nature gets you away from the complexities and hassles of life, so why would you keep putting up with a difficult tent set up? Make your next camping trip simple with the Gazelle Tents T3 Pop Up Hub 3 Person Outdoor Camping Tent. This 3 person pop up tent can be set up quickly and easily by 1 person in just 90 seconds, whether that be in the woods or in your own backyard. Even better, its lightweight design makes it easy to pack to and from your campsite with the included carry bag. Large enough to sleep 3 with 40 square feet of floor space and 68 inches of head room, this large pop up tent is ideal for small family camping trips. This tent features 2 zippered doors and 6 tightly woven mesh windows, plus it comes with a removable floor so you can easily shake out sand and other dirt that gets tracked in.

My math say's 68" is 5'-8" and that is at the center, not the edges. Go with a T4 if you want to stand up.

I just ordered the G5 gazebo this weekend to use for some outdoor shelter. I don’t want an awning attached to my vehicle. This will replace the Coleman 10x10 popup canopy that takes 4 people to setup.

Good choice , very versatile, the down side is it doesn't have a floor and it wont go up in 90 seconds like a T4. You can throw down a 8x8 carpet but it's not waterproof and wont keep the varmints out.

True, but the Coleman canopy didn’t have a floor or mosquito walls and took more people than I ever have to setup. I think this will provide shelter from rain and sun which is the important part.

That's the whole point. It will do what you want it to do, and do it better than what you already have. I too want the G5 as I would use it for day time use only most of the time, and trusting that I can sleep in it (along with others) if I want (on cots the only way to go). I like the idea that it is a screened shelter as well because I hate mosquitos, and hot muggy nights.

The 2-pack walls were sold out. I ordered a 3-pack and hope it will be enough if needed (minus the door and 1 side). But it’s replacing a popup canopy with no walls so it’s still ahead of the game in that regard.
The guy at the both said I would need 2 of the 3-packs to cover the whole thing, so that is what I ordered.

I use this:

The great thing about the Gazelle is that you don't even need to use the dust pan. I just un-velcro one of the sides and brush the dirt straight out.
Sorry, how do you clean the walls and rain fly of the Gazelle... my question wasn’t very clear.

Thanks!

First trip with my Gazelle T3 and TJ to the Canyonlands NP Maze District. The T3 fit easily inside the Jeep and on the tire carrier (to help dry, we over-achieved wet weather camping qualifications during this trip). The T3s (both mine and my brother’s - he is also an OB member) easily weathered thunderstorm downpours/downdrafts, rain, sleet/hail, and high winds (we encountered all of those at The Neck campsite the first night. The tents remained dry & comfortable. My bud joined us on this trip (now hooked with overlanding) with his old backpacking tent. After climbing in & out with the accompanying winds/rain/mud, declared his near-future Gazelle acquisition.

After watching a youtube video on the Gazelle G5 - I have decided that the G3 or G4 is a better choice for a shelter. The video guy said the screening on the G5 is too dense to allow air flow and was so hot he only used it for storage in temperatures above 70* F. Cold weather camping was okay. The video guy only commented on this G5 after one year of use. The only thing I am concerned about is that the G3 and G4 probably have the same type screening. He also said the G5 roof let in too much heat because of it's transparency. He would probable have liked it better if he was mountain or high desert camping instead of Florida beach camping. If it's cool already you don't need too much breeze to make it comfortable. He mentioned one other thing that I never would have thought of. He said the inside filled with June bugs because they come for being grubs in cold weather and come out of the ground on warm weather nights. Who would think ?
He should have put a rug down, me thinks !! NICE PICTURES SHAMU !

Thank you!

I have a Clam Traveler, small 4-sided screen shelter, for those campsites with bonus gnats and calm air. It’s relatively small pack size allows it to fit inside my Jeep TJ next to my Gazelle T3.

Two things, I looked up your clam traveler and I think it fits the need for a single guy like me. 6'x6' with 6'-10" head room is perfect. I wish they made an 8x8 but they don't. Second, as I was going through eBay I noticed they are selling a four sided tent that fits inside your 10x10 canopy for only $88 in case you are interested. I found it when I was looking at the Gazelles for sell like yours.

Hey Shamu, I just noticed that we are almost neighbors. At least we are in the same state. Maybe we can get together some time.

But if you set it up over a HOLE...!

Anyone that has one of these how HOT are they? I need a tent with lots of ventilation and that allows what little wind there may be to flow through and move hot air / humidity out.
