Coulton Creek 4
Coulton Creek 4
Nice tent. I had one and used it a lot as a solo tent on my rally travels for a few years. Maria joined me from time to time and we had plenty of room for two. Rolf (of ROK Straps fame) has one, though he doesn't have much use for a tent these days. A second set of hands is nice, but setting it up by yourself is pretty easy once you get the hang of it.
This particular unit was displayed at several trade shows and clinics but never actually camped in. It's basically brand new - just isn't in its original packaging.
Features and Specs as follows:
1 large door with two closure options: zip up the mesh only for ventilation or zip up the ripstop polyester layer for full protection
Rainfly awning protects the tent's entryway (though does not form a vestibule)
DAC® poles are made from TH72M aluminum, the latest technology in lightweight tent poles with improved durability; plus, they're anodized without the use of harsh acids (so it's a relatively "green" product)
All seams are taped with waterproof, solvent-free polyurethane tape
Color coded webbing and buckles make set up easy
Reflective guyline provides nighttime visibility
Mesh floor pockets help organize your gear
Best Use: Car camping
Sleeping Capacity: 4-person (but really, it's a great solo or 2-person tent)
Packaged Weight:9 lbs. 2 oz.
Packed Size: 8 x 23 inches
Floor Dimensions: 8 ft. x 7 ft. 2 in.

Vestibule Area: None. There's no enclosed vestibule on this one, there's just a bit of an awning that juts out enough to shelter the door
Peak Height: 5 feet
Number of Doors: 1 door
Number of Poles: 3. Two long ones that cross each other as they go diagonally from front to back, and one relatively short one that goes across the top front to back to form the awning.
