The Eureka Timberline Tent is one of the best 4 person a-frame tents.
Campers are fickle people. Nobody wants to experience the slightest bit of rain inside their shelter, family camping tents must be spacious, and backpacking equipment ultralight. So any camping tent that has received positive reviews for thirty years straight must be amazing--such is the case with the Eureka Timberline Outfitter 4 Tent.
Specs of the Eureka Timberline
Floor seams are factory taped in order to provide protection from the elements even in the most extreme weather conditions.
Eureka tent company's patented bathtub floor design keeps seams off the ground for additional protection, and the Outfitter 4's a-frame tent design uses aluminum poles for maximum stability and reliability.
With 2 large windows, the Eureka Outfitter 4 person camping tent has excellent ventilation.
Even better, Eureka Timberline 4 tents have hooded windows, permitting cross-ventilation while eliminating the chance of rain, snow, dust, or sand entering the tent.
While the Timberline Outfitter 4 Tent is designed for backpacking, its minimum weight of 10 lbs. 12 oz may deter some. But it's important to consider that the Timberline Outfitter is a 3.5 season, 4 person tent--few backpacking tents can accommodate as many people and seasons with less weight.
The Eureka Timberline Tent is one of the best a-frame tents, designed with reliability, simplicity to set up, and comfort in mind. Many of its thoughtful features include:
The Timberline Tent Pitched
Boyscouts, girlscouts, families, and extreme backpackers alike have relied on either the Eureka Timberline 4 or Timberline Outfitter Tent for nearly 30 years.
All tent ratings for Eureka Timberline Tent are 5 stars.
The thoughtfulness, workmanship, and durability of Timberline Tents converts campers to Eureka lovers for life.
While larger, recreational family tents provide luxuries, such as vertical walls, they are not equipped to withstand harsh elements like the Outfitter 4.
The Eureka Timberline Tent's bathtub floor, a-frame design, aluminum frame, and factory sealed fly and floor are a perfect combination for protection from weather and stability.
Add in the thoughtfulness of hooded windows, a breathable nylon canopy, and the ability to open or close windows as much or as little as needed and you have the Outfitter 4 tent--one of the best 4 person backpacking tents.
First off, the Eureka Outfitter 4 is more than anything else durable, stable, and weatherproof. Few camping tents are as reliable as the Timberline Outfitter 4 in any weather conditions.
While bulkier, a-frame tents provide additional head-room and spaciousness. Additionally, a-frame tents like the Timberline 4 can withstand strong winds and heavy snows.
It is the perfect family camping tent for those that understand camping, will camp rain or shine, and don't enjoy spending their camping trip inside the tent (unless it's raining cats and dogs).
Finally, the hooded windows are a camper's dream. Nothing is worse than being cramped inside a tent during a storm with no ventilation. The Eureka tent company recognized this when redesigning the Timberline Outfitter 4.
While this a-frame tent may be considered a backpacking shelter, with a packaged weight of over 11 lbs, campers may want to think twice before purchasing the Timberline Outfitter tent for backpacking purposes alone.
Still, if you backpack in extreme conditions, few 4 person, 3.5 season tents are as reliable and durable as the Timberline 4. When roughing it in the backcountry, you want reliability and stability, which is what the Eureka Timberline Tent delivers.
If you are looking for a snug, family camping tent for rain or shine camping, then Eureka Timberline Outfitter 4 tents might be up your alley. If you are just getting into camping though, the Timberline is probably too small for your needs and you're better off with the Eureka Titan.

Eureka Timberline Outfitter Tents are one of the best camping tents for wet weather. Eureka did everything possible to make the Timberline Outfitter 4 comfortable in rain or shine conditions and, as usual, they delivered.
However, if you plan to only this shelter as a backpacking tent, the Eureka Timberline Outfitter 4 Tent's weight is rightfully discouraging.
