Comfort and Space
With a floor size of 120 in x 120 in / 304.8 cm x 304.8 cm, there’s plenty of room for everyone. The Eureka Copper Canyon LX 6 person tent can fit six people comfortably in its single room with a floor area of 100 sq ft / 9.3 sqm.
It allows for enough floor area to fit a queen-sized and single mattress with ample room to spare, or 6 individual sleeping pads which might be a bit of a tight squeeze.

The incredible 7 foot / 213.4 cm interior peak height means almost all campers regardless of height can stand up comfortably, change, and move around without overly crouching.
This cabin tent has near-vertical walls, allowing for way more headroom and shoulder space than traditional dome tents.
With two storage pockets and two gear hammocks, you can stash your stuff easily accessible to reach at night without disturbing other campers.
Breathability and Ventilation
The one large door and three mesh windows around the tent keep the air nice and cool even with a big group of people inside.
The mesh windows provide a great view from inside of the tent, but when needed there are waterproof curtains available for all windows for the ultimate weather protection.
Additionally, there is an extended fly coverage over the front door that gives protection from rain and wind. In a light rain, it means you can also leave the main door unzipped for fresher and cooler air while also being protected.

With a 68D polyester no-see-um mesh, the tent provides bug protection from even the smallest of insects while also keeping air circulation intact. The spacious floor area is perfect for hanging out indoors free from bugs and bad weather, while also circulating fresh and cool air.
The Eureka Copper Canyon LX 6 person tent is marketed as a three-season tent. With plenty of airflow let in by its massive door and large windows, you’ll be comfortable even in hot weather, especially if you leave the rainfly off.
The body and the rainfly fabric are 75-denier polyester taffeta coated with 1200 waterproofing to protect you from anything but the most severe storms.
The extended fly cover allows for a dry entry which is helpful, given that this tent has no vestibules. The fly gives some measure of protection from light rain, and the waterproof curtain can be kept down for optimal air circulation.
Like most cabin tents, the Eureka Copper Canyon LX 6 person tent isn’t the most aerodynamic, so be sure to secure the guylines and stake down the tent in stronger winds!
Some reviewers have stated that the floor fabric feels thin and they felt more comfortable with an additional layer of protection, so you might want to add a footprint or tarp between the ground and the tent’s floor.
The 19 mm main steel poles have a significant advantage over aluminum or fiberglass poles. Steel is way more durable and sturdy than the other metals but is more expensive and heavier.
The main steel frame provides a solid foundation for this tent while the secondary fiberglass poles shave precious ounces off the overall weight.
Fiberglass poles are heavier and more flimsy than aluminum but tend to cost less. They are characteristically used as secondary poles in higher-end tents and main poles in budget tents that are smaller.
Ease of Use
The Eureka Copper Canyon LX 6 person tent is easily set up by one person in 10-15 minutes, despite its size and multiple components. The main poles are made of steel, and the poles for the upper canopy are made of lighter fiberglass.
It might be a little difficult to get the last one or two poles seated but with some help, setup should still be a breeze.
