We’ve been using the same Cabela’s Westwind tent for 8+ years and it has been great. However, as a “Ranger” for The Dyrt, I get to test camping products. This time the company was Wenzel, a company that make tents in the budget price range.
For the Ranger review program, we typically get a coupon code to use and I rarely spend more than the total amount (typically $100), but this time I decided it would be worth it. There wasn’t anything I found cheaper from Wenzel that would be really useful for my family at this point, plus I love tents. I picked the Ivanhoe 6 since our only real issue with the Westwind is the setup time/effort.
The Ivanhoe has a simple setup with a single walled design. It is definitely smaller than the Westwind Deluxe, but my oldest son James is now in is own small Coleman dome tent, so we don’t need it to be as big. We plan to use the Ivanhoe in good weather mostly, since we love the weather proofing and vestibule from the Westwind (though the Ivanhoe performed admirably in the rain).
Here’s my video review of the Wenzel Ivanhoe 6 tent:
You can buy it from Walmart if you want your own.
