    I just got my cabelas spring catalog. They have a Trekker Classic Dome tent that sleeps 8 people for $150.00 and one that sleeps 6 that is $120.00. It sounds like they are closing them out so if you are interested I'd check it out soon.

      I'm a big fan of the Eureka Timberline. I spent two weeks in one once with no problems.

        Cabelas.com. Try Kelty, Eureka, or Trekker.

          The Eureka Timeberline looks like it should be a really good tent.

              What time of the year are you going to use it? If in the winter I suspect the $150 limit won't be enough.

                Look on the campmor web site. They have some great prices and sales on name brand tents. I bought a $400 6 man for less than $150 and only had to pay $6 to ship it to my door!

                  I've been using a Coleman Dome tent from Walmart, cost about $80.00. Comes with a full rain fly and sleeps 5, and has the special opening in the corner for an extension cord to pass through from a generator or power inverter.

                    Coleman is cheap, sold everywhere, and pretty rugged.

                        Can't go wrong with the Eureka timberline 4. Well I really wouldn't want to carry it too far but if you are car or canoe camping it should do you just fine.

                          I agree with the guy who suggested Campmor. First, do you want to backpack with it? Second, how many people do you want to sleep? And Third, will you be camping in high wind or temps below 15 degrees (i.e. winter or hunting season above the Mason/Dixon line)? I guess you don't want to backpack since you want a 4-6 man tent, so I guess you're just looking to car camp. In that case, a 6-man Eureka dome will do well. I use one for car camping hunting trips and I can put two cots inside and we can both be very comfortable. Get one where the fly comes to the bottom of the tent unless you live in the Mojave where it never rains. Get one with a urethane coated floor in any rate.
