- in Canvas Tent
When I was at Overland Expo Pacific Northwest in Redmond, Oregon. One of the affordable options for living small that I wanted to check out was Gazelle Tents.
Gazelle Tents is located in Cumberland, Wisconsin, and builds several tents and gazebos. They are known for creating a tent that can be set up literally in seconds.
At the expo, they were featuring their Overland Editions in two sizes. The larger and most popular sizes are the T4 Hub Tent and the smaller T3X Hub Tent.
For long-term camping or living, I would suggest the larger T4. The Overland edition comes with a few extras compared to the standard Gazelle tent.
It includes an added durable footprint for floor protection, upgraded All-Terrain Stakes, and a water-resistant duffle bag. This tent spaciously provides 61 square feet of floor space and stands 78” tall, sleeping four people with spare space for your gear. The T4 Overland Edition comes fully assembled and sets up and takes down in under 90 seconds.
I like the quick set of the Gazelle tents. However, there are a couple of things to consider if you are purchasing this tent.
The packed size of the tent is 8″ x 8″ x 67.5″ which is 5 and 1/2 feet long. You will need a long space inside of your vehicle to store it when traveling or put it on a roof rack outside of your car.
One other feature that you should consider is the doors. They are a unique angle in a triangular shape. They are large enough to get your equipment in but you do need to think about entering or exiting because of the unusual shape. You must step up and in.
All in all I think this is a great option for a quick setup tent with plenty of headroom and room for up to 4 people to sleep inside.
