“Every outdoorsman has battled at one time or another with a mess of tent poles after a long drive to get to camp,” said Jon Neff, Vice President of Sales, Grand Trunk. “Grand Trunk's Quick Set Tents are the ultimate solution to this universal snag. The tents are easy to use and set up in virtually no time at all, allowing today's campers more time to enjoy what they love most – relaxing in the outdoors.”

The Quick Set Tent's pre-attached fiberglass poles and patented “central hub” design and technology mean lightning-fast set up in four easy steps, as demonstrated in a video now available on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0UXkDrEs_fQ:

•Remove the tent from its convenient carrying case
•Extend all four (4) tent legs
•Gently push the “hubs” together
•Secure the tent to the ground

Grand Trunk's three-season Quick Set Tents are crafted from high-quality materials guaranteed to keep campers dry and comfortable at night, and are suitable for a variety of weather conditions. The tents are currently available in blue/silver in two styles: the Uinta 4-Man Tent ($229.00 MSRP), which features a generous vestibule attachment for storing gear; full-coverage waterproof rain fly, and taped waterproof seams; and the Cielo Shelter ($79.99 MSRP), which features UV protected coating and mesh with SPF 50+ and a detachable floor, ideal for use at the beach, park and other outdoor spaces.

Quick Set Tents are a good fit for both experienced and first-time outdoor enthusiasts, and have come along just in time to serve the many consumers who are rediscovering camping as an ideal, affordable family getaway. According to industry reports, recreation tent sales are up more than 117 percent over the past few years, reinforcing the notion that the average outdoor consumer is spending less time in the backcountry and more time car-camping, family camping and getting outdoors in a less intense way.
