I temporarily got my hands on the brand new wall tent from Seek Outside to test and review. It’s definitely a break from the tipi design, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing as there are pluses and minuses to both. I’ll go through my thoughts and recommendations, as well as a full how-to on setting up the shelter. I’ll also give a side-by-side comparison to the Cimarron and the 16 Person Tipi.
Despite being a wall tent, this is not your typical Walmart special. The Courthouse is a lightweight, floorless shelter weighing in at around 12.5 lbs (minus the stove). The design allows you to fit 2-3 people very comfortably with gear and a wood burning stove…maybe even a few chairs. The design will also stand up to 4 season camping with no issue.
