Bushnell Shield Series Instant Cabin Tent Set Up

In this video I demonstrate how to set or pitch my current camping tent – The Bushnell Instant Cabin Shield Series Tent. I chose this tent for several reasons:

  • Easy set up and take down
  • Light weight
  • Compact packing for easy storage
  • Tall enough (6″ plus) so I can stand inside
  • Large enough for two people and plenty of camping gear
  • Large vestibule (veranda) to enjoy the outdoors
  • Openings for electric cables
  • Opening for a portable air conditioner
  • Affordable

In a future video I will show the take down and packing – often the most challenging part of camping!

A few things to consider

The tent is not perfect! Before setting out to camp, do consider the following:

  • Waterproofing! My tent leaked quite a bit at the seams. I sealed all the seams and sprayed the fly sheet with water-repellant.
  • Close the windows when it rains. The design allows for plenty of airflow and great views but zip the windows closed or you will take in water!
  • A good ground sheet to protect the tent floor which is quite thin.
  • It has little hanging space inside and the design does not allow for hanging heavy items from the center hooks.

Where to Buy

You can order the tent from Amazon.
