The Timberline SQ 2XT tent from Eureka sleeps 2 and is a classic tent updated with the latest in frame technology. The 2XT adds a storage vestibule built right onto the front of the tent and a second door for convenience and improved ventilation. The Timberline series has been famous for years as the Scout's tent of choice, Why? Because of ease of set up, durability and reliability. Well Eureka just made it better with a stronger and easier to set up aluminum frame set. The frame is so tough that Eureka began to compare it to the strength and durability of the giant Sequoia tree and the name stuck (SQ). A stronger, thicker ridge pole and the SQ frame's spreader pole not only increase overall frame strength but adds more usable living space to the interior of the tent. Improved ventilation with the addition of 2 generous roof vents mean long humid tent nights will be much more comfortable than in the past. In addition Eureka has lengthened the side of the fly for even more coverage and added vestibule wings to the rear of the tent to protect the 2nd door from weather. Some of the good old parts remain like the use of RipStop materials on the fly for strength and worry free use. This is a classic tent and it just got better.

          I'm in my 60's and I've used Eureka tents for many, many years. My last one was the Alpenlite 2XT. I had it for over 20 years years and used it on average a half dozen times a year. I loved it! It was the best tent I ever had! I recently but reluctantly decided to purchase a new one. I decided on the Timberline SQ 2XT. After I set it up and examieid it, I promtly returned it after realizing how much poorly it was made as campared to the Alpenite. Being very disappointed, I sent it back.

          Beware of Eureka tents!

                The Timberline is a basic tent that is durable and easy to use. They have been around for a long time and are very popular with Scouts, etc. The problem is the coatings the company is currently using. Mine have deteriorated into a sticky, stinky, unusable mess. The company rep I talked to said they only expect the coatings to last five years and the seam sealers to last three to five years. If you expect your tent to last more than five years, do not buy Eureka.

                  On the first time out with this tent we barely got camp set up before rain started. It rained for the next 22 hours ranging from hard drizzle to windy thunderstorm but never stopped raining for those 22 hours. My gear in the tent stayed dry except for the few drops that fell off my rain gear when I crawled into the tent for the second night. Many folks with lesser equipment were very wet. Had to wring a gallon or more of water out of one kids sleeping bag. I replaced a very well used Eureka Alpine Meadows with this tent.

                        Comments about Eureka Timberline SQ 2XT Tent:

                        I am an adult leader for a boy scout troop. I bought the 2 person version of the Timberline SQ as my personal tent. I was able to try out the tent on an outing to the Coast Guard Training Center in Camp May, NJ. The weather was awful. We camped in an open field with heavy winds, thunderstorms and heavy downpours. The tent withstood the wind and rain flawlessly! Not a drop of rain got into the tent and my gear stayed bone dry. Others had their tents get flooded and some tents collapsed with the wind. I didn't seam seal anything, I used the tent straight out of the box.

                        The frame is rock solid with no flexing even with the sustained heavy winds we had all weekend. I did add some guy lines to the two D rings on top of the fly for extra security because of the winds. In fair weather these wouldn't be needed, but we were located right by the beach with strong winds coming in off the ocean and thunderstorms both nights.

                        The tent was easy to set up by myself. I followed the instructions that were included with the tent. The aluminum poles are strong and solid. The materials are all high quality. I liked the fact that the integrated hubs for the A frame are shock corded with the poles so they don't get lost. Assembly is a snap that can be done easily by one person.

                        I did have one issue with the assembly. The spreader pole is a bit tricky to install in the rain fly pockets. The instructions don't tell you that one of the small pockets for the spreader pole is actually a Velcro enclosure that opens to allow you to insert the pole. If you don't open the Velcro pocket, it is extremely difficult to install the pole and you risk ripping the rain fly. Eureka needs to update the instructions to mention this fact and save the consumer some serious aggravation!

                        The tent came with 4 of those yellow plastic stakes to hold down the tent body and a bunch of those flimsy, thin, metal stakes. A few of the metal stakes kept turning and the loop would pop off because of the wind. Lesson learned! I am replacing these with larger stakes that hold better. I can't imagine why Eureka includes these inferior stakes with this high quality tent.

                        On the plus side, the tent had plenty of room for me and my gear. The spreader pole really gives you extra headroom when inside. The ventilation was excellent with Hi/Low ventilation on both doors. The tent includes a nice vestibule area for some extra storage space.

                        Overall, an outstanding tent that is worth every penny. If you want a tent that is easy to set up, roomy, rock solid and bone dry, I would highly recommend getting the Timberline SQ 2XT.

                            First: This is a wonderful tent. Second: If you read my method for inserting the spreader rod on the SQ 4XT fly, don't do it on this one! The Eureka people realizing that folks were having a hard time getting the spreader rod into the little pockets on the fly, re-designed one of the pockets to have an open side to allow the rod to be slipped in easier. Once the rod is in, the pocket is closed with a velcro strap. It's too bad the instructions don't mention this change. My old eyes didn't see the change to the pocket so I tried to gently lever the rod in and ripped the fly. Campmor customer service sent me a new one, Thanks you guys! Great service!
                            The tent itself is the same quality tent as the four person just scaled down. There is a change to the fly to include a vestibule on one end. It zips open if you wanted to go out or for more ventilation. I think in a bad wind it could be pointed into the wind to help deflect the wind around the tent. There are two doors on this tent. I did see where someone was fussing about the plastic fittings on these tents; this is not "plastic" from fifty years ago, it's the latest development in long lasting durable polymeres of today. They will be working long after you've gone to the grave. In my opinion, this is a dandy one person tent or maybe two and built to last.
                            By the way; did you know that if you take a lid from a cottage cheese container and cut it in half it makes a great "dust pan"? That and a cheap paint brush will keep your tent floor clean. Store them in one of those inside pockets that are found in each cornor of the tent.

                              Comments about Eureka Timberline SQ 2XT Tent:

                              This is one of the very best values for an all around true 2 person tent. For this price point you get full sized, free standing, 2 person tent that's E-Z to set up. Its very strong A-frame design makes it a full 3.5 season tent that could be pressed into many 4 season roles (although not the hard core Everest base camp adrenaline junkie missions I guess).

                              Ventillation is great, set up a breeze and interior space is perfect for even 2 full sized adults. although if you are over 6 and 1/2 feet tall it may get a bit tight with sleeping gear. In great weather you can leave off the fly and just use the body. It comes with 4 small gear pockets which is handy, but if you are a gear pocket nut then you will want to buy a loft or something to suppliment. The vestibule offers pretty good additional space and full sized doors on both ends you can use every inch of the vesti, clutter it up and not have to go through it to get out which is nice. Although it would be a stretch to try and use it for 2 full sized frame packs with boots and other gear plus try and cook out of it in bad weather. Its not "that" much vesti so if you need that purchase the optional vesti for the other side.

                              Just to be clear, because the pictures of this tent can be misleading, one side has two flaps which protect from rain at awkward angles (even though it has 2 full sized, fully sealable doors) and the other side has the vest that goes all the way to the ground, although with no floor cover so cut a piece of tarp if you need that.

                              The stakes are meh but that's the case with almost any tent so be prepared to buy or bring your own. The ones they provide will work in most situations but you will want others for sure.

                              A lot of reviewers ding this tent on its weight for backpack/hiking camping and claim this is just a car camping tent. Incorrect. Yes, there are lighter tents out there. But again, for the money you spend and the space and all the other positives you get from this one, it can not be beat. Weight is important, but a couple pounds more for one of your most critical pieces of gear that you will be spending 1/3 or more of your time in is worth it if you get something in return for that weight. In this case you absolutely do, especially for price.

                              So ignore the knee jerk featherweight rants that bash anything but the very lightest equipent on earth. Unless you're desperate to shave off 2/10ths of a second off your camping time speed record, this tent is WELL worth the extra pound or two and is lighter than many in its class anyway. Besides since it is a true full sized 2 person tent, it can be split up nicely between 2 hiker/campers.

                              This is a time proven design that's served campers well for generations. Easy to set up. Roomy. 3.5 seasons. Well venelated. Strong frame and ample tie down points to stand up to most weather. And its free standing too so you can move it around with ease if you want to.

                              Epic tent. Git-summ!

                                is there a vestibule that opens at both ends of tent, or only one. do both ends of vestibule open to enter tent, since there are 2 doors?

                                would i be able to cook and run a heater in the tent without it melting, if not would you be able to point me into the direction of a tent that is that durable in this price range?

                                  Campmor only carries synthetic-material tents. We would suggest a canvas tent, which we do not carry. We do not recommend cooking or using heaters in enclosed spaces.

                                  Yes the vestibule zips down from the side closest to the center and rolls to the side.

                                  The SQXT series has a heavier duty frame, more substantial materials over all ,and a full coverage fly with large front vestibule.
