Thinking of buying a Cabela's XWT Tent, Thoughts???

4 posts in this topic

I am thinking of purchasing one of these “XWT” tents?

Does anyone else have a review on this tent??

For those of you who have one did you purchase the “Pitch Kit” and the “Floor Liner”??

Do you always stake out all the “guy-outs” points or can you leave some loose in decent weather?

What size do you that have them have, is the 12’ X 12’ to big?

Let me know your thoughts please…

Thanks in advance

I have the precursor to the current XWT, bought in 2001 I believe, after getting the ultimate review from my inlaws. They purchased the tent in 2000 after extensive research, since they were going to stay in it for a 2 week fly in hunting trip to the Brooks range in Alaska that September. In a word, it has been indestructable. I camp up in Voyageurs park for about 22 days each summer and have had winds up to 50mph without a hitch or drop of water. I do not have the floor liner, wish i would have gotten one tho (not made any more). My tent is 9x9, and just fits myself/wife, 4 year old and a 65# husky. I dont think that you will find a better made tent, period. I do not use the outer shell tyouts unless there is going to be rain or high winds, only stake out the guys on the bottom of the outer shell. If this one ever goes (dont think it will tho) I would buy another in a second.

        So no help here it looks like. How did it end up going? Did you find a fix?. Suk's to be stranded.

      How's the snow on the lake?  Can you still get around on snowmobile or is the slush getting bad?  Thanks for any info.

      I don't have an axe to grind with The Landing (and I don't honk anyone on this forum does either)- I went there a few times last summer and the food was good, they had an ample beer selection, and the service was friendly- all of those things I'm willing to pay for.   We had another couple up staying the weekend at our cabin and brought them to The Landing and had a terrific time, looking forward to making it back there again!   And more importantly, can't wait for the ice to get off the lake!!
