There is a huge variety of Greatland tents sold for different users with their varied demands. One of the popular products is the Greatland 3 room tents, and the Greatland 2 room dome tent. It is important though to carefully check the product manual if you’re thinking of buying a Greatland tent since not all of their tents are waterproof. Most of the Greatland tents are built and developed merely as a shelter for sun and light rain. Some Greatland tents are specifically not intended for use during heavy rain, wind, hail, snow or other inclement (rough, stormy) weather.
