When you need a tent with enough space and the right features to house 10 campers at once, the best-selling, durably built Wenzel Great Basin is the obvious choice. Everyone will appreciate the revolutionary new Lite Reflect™ system that beams an even useful glow all around when you put a headlamp or flashlight in the gear loft and aim it at a built-in reflective panel. There’s also the privacy of removable divider curtains that instantly create three separate sleeping rooms. No wonder “great” is in the name.
