I am looking to replace my current faulty "Quick Pitch En Suite" privacy tent that I bought from Drifta. I need to increase my wife's comfort when we travel.

What is everyone using?​
Positive/ negative experiences?​
Cost? Expensive is not a guarantee of quality.​
Thanks for your help.​

We use a 10x14 Kodiak Canvas tent. Due to the material, it's actually very private. LINK
Pros: Heavy duty materials, very weather proof, no rain fly needed, no guy wires needed (except awning), lots of floor space & head room, front and rear door, great ventilation, breathable, no condensation, easier to set up than using flexible shock-cord poles
Cons: Heavy - Pack Weight: Tent - 79 lbs., with poles - 91 lbs. Size - Pack Size: Tent -- 30" x 16", Poles -- 48" x 5.5" (not really an issue for us as we carry it in the truck bed, but if carrying inside, it may be a consideration. also, they do come in smaller sizes)
Price: not cheap, but we feel the quality is very much worth the price we paid.

We've been using the Eezi-Awn Cube for a while now and we're very happy with it. It's around $180 locally, not sure what it costs in the US. I believe Equipt Expedition Outfitters distribute Eezi-awn in the US.

I will indeed check them out. Pricing is great. I paid $600 for mine. I only used 3 times before the pivot seized, and the metal arm bent. I just received an email from the Quickpitch. Drifta told me I must have done something wrong, and I was on my own. Quickpitch offered to ship the parts. We shall see how this plays out.
I plan on building/buying a trailer soon, and will be installing a privacy tent on it too. I will be careful what I get. Cost, support, and even spare parts are important.

Thanks for your response.

UPDATE: Quick pitch has sent me a replacement for my faulty unit.

That looks like a very nice tent. I may have been vague in my question. I am looking for shower/ bathroom shower tents. We have a roof top tent, and have a fold out privacy tent on the otherwise of the truck. Looking at my options to replace the broken one I have now.

Thanks for sharing

Ahh, that makes more sense. For shower privacy, I just ensure we far enough from anyone else to not worry about being seen. :sunglasses:

Lol, sometimes that is the option we use when we can.

This is what I use. Texsport. Most of the time I have to deal with wind. I've seen too many of the portable ones fold over. This design has metal poles and plenty of tie down spots. Not too big but has plenty of room inside.

Edit: Googled yours. I see its the same design and a bit more money.
