BINGHAMTON, N.Y. (April 15, 2010) – Eureka!, a leading camping equipment company, today announced its new Suite V6 Tent has been chosen to receive the 2010 Editors' Choice Award from Camping Life magazine. The Suite V6 will be featured in the May 2010 issue hitting newsstands in mid-April.

“Being selected as a winner of the Editors' Choice Award by Camping Life is a fantastic achievement for the Eureka! brand,” said Mark Hrubant, brand director for Eureka! Tents. “This award recognizes the Suite V6 as one of the most innovative tents on the market and reinforces our key goal - to be the leading tent designer and camping equipment provider for families and outdoor enthusiasts. We are very pleased to be recognized for bringing this unique tent design to consumers.”

"This is one of the most innovative new designs we saw this year and quickly became a big hit with us,” said Stuart Bourdon, editor of Camping Life magazine. “The Eureka! Suite V's unique V-shape creates a welcoming entryway allowing you to walk upright into a 6-foot-high entrance, as well as a place to sit out of the weather when the front awning is set up. Our editors especially liked the two large D-shaped doors, four windows, and the roof made of no-see-um screen, which is great for warm nights."

Each year, the editors of Camping Life review thousands of products in search of the top camping products each the year. The winners are featured in the May 2010 issue, just in time for the busy summer camping season. This year, Camping Life selected 10 innovative products to receive Editors' Choice Awards.

The Eureka! Suite V Tents have a unique pole structure that provides maximum headroom at the front of the tent, enabling campers over six feet tall to walk upright into the front door through the front vestibule area. These three-pole V-shaped dome tents with fiberglass frames offer expanded living space inside for improved livability, and all within a smaller V– shaped footprint. They feature two large D-style doors with mesh roof and four windows for airflow, and a fly that can be configured in multiple ways including use as an awning. The Suite V6 measures 14' 3” x 9' and is 6' 9” high, weighs 26 lbs 12 oz. and costs $319.90. The Suite V4 measures 9' 6” x 7' 3” and is 6' 2” high, weighs 20 lbs 8 oz. and costs $239.90.
