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.

      Hey! Does anyone know any brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout? Preferably near lakeville, mn but ill travel!

      Nice fish, Jeff. And good lesson on 1/2 crawlers, Cliff. I'm off the water for a few days with family doings, but should report I've seen a lot of mayflies in Frazer and near the portage. Clouds on the sonar and slicks of the water. I'm guessing it's not the big hatch, but it's providing a lot of food for fish. good luck out there.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!
