    I need some advise. I shipped my old Equnox 6 tent to New Zealand this year and need to replace it. I have gone on the web sites and prices range all over the place but when I placed an order I got confirmation and then a cancilation notice as they said that they had to get permission from Eurika before they could sell at that price. My question is...does anyone have a recommendation where I might get the best value? Alternatively, is there another brand that combines the features that I like. The Equnox is easy to put up, spacious, stable in strong wind, only uses 6 tent pegs and the rain fly comes down almost to the ground. Thanks for any advise. Warren

    It's hard to beat those tents. I still have mine from almost 20 years ago. I LOVE it!!!! I rarely tent camp anymore. But that tent is pretty hard to beat at the prices when I bought it (not sure on how much they cost anymore). I'd say your best bet is to try places like ebay, craigslist, etc if you're looking for best price.

    Hey Mike,

    I tried the Mountain Sports in Pantego Texas and they didn't have it on the web site. Is that the one you used? Thanks. Warren
