Best for Car Camping
Vidalido Family

The Vidalido Teepee Tent is a fairly typical take on the contemporary teepee design. Its spaciousness, affordability, and ability to be customized make it an excellent choice for potential festival goers and families. The central pole is definitely a factor in moving around the inside of the tent, but that’s a problem you’re likely to run into with most tents of this style. 

Overall, this tent is best suited for frontcountry trips and car camping. It’s comfortable, well-ventilated, and has enough room inside to play cards. That said, car campers might want to consider getting an RTT if the tent’s central pole is a dealbreaker. 

Our Overall Review

We have thoroughly tested - and read reviews from other experts and users. In summary, this is what we think:

4.7

Things we like:

  • check-mark
    Placed at an excellent price point for a tent that can shelter a large number of people. Perfect for a family outing or a festival.
  • check-mark
    The removable bugnet means you can set up just a large mesh structure to see out into the open air, a pure tarp shelter to use for eating and changing, or a fully-housed sleeping shelter.
  • check-mark
    Comes with an additional pole used for propping the door open, you can use this to make a fun vestibule structure to get some shelter from the sun, or keep gear dry in a light rain.

Things we don't like:

  • check-markWhile having multiple pieces allows for more options, setting up the entire structure when those pieces have been separated for a while can be more time consuming than you would expect from a teepee tent.
  • check-markLike many tents of this style, it isn’t a freestanding structure. You need to be able to get the stakes in the ground in order to set it up which might pose a problem in rocky soil.
  • check-markThe setup is fairly intuitive. But there have been complaints about the instructions being difficult to follow the first few times you attempt to assemble it.
