Love the T4. As I sat and watched campers fight to put their tents up and pack them up I could only laugh. I had people at three campgrounds come and ask me about it after watching mine go up in a minute. Highly recommend!

I had that same exact experience at Expo East last fall. That time was actually the first time I had set up my T4 and it went exactly as advertised. Later that day a few people asked me about it. Fast forward to the next morning and their previous tent was now replaced with a Gazelle. This repeated itself two more times at Expo East! I almost felt like I should have got a commission from Gazelle!

The Alps Mountaineering Ready Lite Cot (78”x28”x7.5”) fits inside the Gazelle T3 diagonally & straight across.

So according to your pictures the t3 is actually bigger than what gazelle says it is ? The dimensions 8 gazelle supplies say that it is 6' - 0" x 6' - 0"( 72"x72"). How do you put a 78" bed in it and still have clearance ? I think you have a t4 tent or someone's info is wrong. I know pictures don't lie !!

A combination of smoke, mirrors, and magnets!
The Gazelle website lists the T3 at 76”x76” deployed. Our recent trip to the Canyonlands, my brother used a cot that fit easily at 75” but was bulky to pack. Not a problem since he drove his pickup but would be a different story with my TJ. Our bud brought his old backpacking tent and an Alps cot. He now owns a T3 after seeing the ease of setup & takedown plus the comfort of walking into the tent vs. crawling. I now own an Alps cot (takes some effort to assemble but is very compact when packed, perfect for my TJ).

Thanks, I can see from some assembled pictures of T3 that it does bow outward on all sides which is where the extra inches must come from. I have more space in my rig than you do and I want the extra ceiling height of the T4 over the T3, so I will go for the T4 and have plenty of space for me and a sitting area for my blow up easy chair and side table.
I am also looking at the Alps mountaineering 4 or 6 because of the straight walls, and 84" height. Best thing is it's over a hundred dollars cheaper than a Gazelle (probably built cheaper) and has good ratings from buyers. If it tears up it's no real loss at $150. I may give it a try at least for one year.

The wife and I just bought a queen size air mattress for our T4. It fit with room to spare!
You made a good choice IMO. Two adults need to be comfortable and the cost difference between the T3 and T4 is insignificant. Let us all know if it suits your needs when you get a chance.

UPS just dropped off the Gazelle T4 tent that was the raffle prize we won at the Overland Bound Ozark Rally.

I can’t believe how easy it is to set up. Should be fun. It goes up faster than my ez-up camping cube.
Great prize, great tent !

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.
WHich one did you get, T4 or T3?

Do you have any pics with tent and mattress aired up? I currently use a 6-person tent with queen size mattress and like the room. Curious how much room is left over in the T4 with mattress aired up. Thanks
If you need more room, Gazelle said the T4 Plus (2 room, 8 person tent) will be back in stock in August.

Dang after seeing the size of your T4 next the the Tacoma - there is no way that is going in a JK hardtop with the doors still attached. That is why I don't have an OZ tent either :(. I guess I could just strap it down to the roof.

Deciding on a tent is one of the hardest things I have ever done. I thought I wanted the gazelle T4 until I found another tent for almost half the price that sets up the same way, has straight walls and 84" height. Looks almost exactly like a gazelle except for the straight wall feature. It is called an Alps Mountaineer and comes in two sizes like the T3-T4 gazelle's. If anyone knows anything about the Alps brand I would appreciate hearing from you.

Need is the mother of invention. Its not heavy so maybe u could tie it sideway across the font or rear bumper if you have the space.

Check out the Alps mountaineer camp 6 tent @ $190 . I think it folds into a package only 3' long. This is the direction I am considering.

I have the T3 and pack it side to side ontop of my wheel wells on my 94yj

Love this tent so easy to set up
