The long name of this KingCamp Oversize Outdoor Camping Dressing Changing Room Shower Privacy Shelter Tent tells all that this is about. But keep reading for details.
Key features & benefits
- Freestanding privacy shelter.
- Two rooms.
- Rain fly.
- Steel & fiberglass poles.
- Carry bag included.
So here you have a 2-room utility shelter, freestanding, and fully collapsible. This means it has many elements (all are shown below), and it needs assembly. But setting this tent up is easy and you need no tools. The picture shows that you have 10 stakes and the corresponding guylines included, so do not miss securing the tent.
The shelter is quite tall with its 83.8 inches (213 cm) peak height, but you need this because of the shower bladder (not included, pity) that has to be hanged above you. You can see in the picture that there are hooks for this purpose:
As mentioned, this structure needs assembly, and they suggest that you start by adding the roof poles first, as shown in the pictures below that show a few steps in the procedure. You might want to attach the fly before raising the tent, it attaches at the upper parts of the legs. Then start adding legs and raise the tent from the ground. One person can do this easily.
Inside you have several useful features, some shown below. There are windows with mesh and zippered panels in both rooms. The inner door between the two rooms also has a mesh section in the upper part.
The poles: You have a combination of 6 steel legs and the roof poles are fiberglass. All of them are shock-corded.
The fabric: The floor is just a typical material that is normally used for tent floors, most likely a polyethylene, with mesh on the perimeter to let the water drain out.
The fly and the walls are a 190T polyester with a 1500 mm waterproof rating. You do not need more for such a shelter, or for any, strictly speaking. The roof has two large triangular mesh sections for ventilation. An Oxford polyester carry bag is included.
Who is it for
Regarding the weight, I would describe it as typical for such shelters, it weighs 16.9 lb (7.66 kg). So it is not light and you would not want to carry it.
But the packed size is only (L x D) 22.8 x 7.8 inches (58 x 20 cm). So it looks small but my rating below is relative to the overall area and I use the same formula consistently for all shelters of this type.
In any case, this is a utility item, so you will use it together with your camping tent. This is why you would use a car in any case and the weight is not particularly important. But its packed size is better than what you have in the Ozark Trail Instant 2-Room Shower/Changing Shelter, so it will not take much space in the car.
Regarding best use & purpose, this is a shelter that you will use next to your camping tent, to take a shower and perhaps to keep your portable toilet in the front room. The most important dimensions are shown below so you realize how large and tall this structure is. The mentioned packed size is such that you can take it on your bicycle even to the beach and use it as a change room.
This is a large structure, but if this is not enough note that this EasyGo Product Shower Shelter is also with two rooms but it is larger.
Regarding the price, this is again quite typical, a fair price for the value. Note that they sell it at the same place on Amazon with yet another single-room shelter, so do not get confused.
- Weight: 16.9 lb (7.66 kg).
