Our Scout Troop has two Go Lite shelters for 6 and 5 persons respectively. We need another. Looking at the Tarptent Hogback. Other suggestions?Jul 7, 2021 at 3:33 pm #3721233Brett ABPL Member
Oware may have something that would suit your needs. Not a “tent”, but a 10′ x 14′ tarp w/perimeter netting. Says the 30d weighs in at 2 lb 15oz.Jul 7, 2021 at 3:55 pm #3721236wiiawiwbBPL Member
Eureka Timberline has been a classic for Scouts. Eureka also has other tents that hold 3-5 people.
Others companies include Seek Outside, REI, Big Agnes, Lite Outdoors Plateau, Luxe Octopeak,Jul 7, 2021 at 7:28 pm #3721284Mark VerberBPL Member

The only 4-person “tent” I remember GoLite making was the shangra-la 5 which was a pyramid tarp. That was my goto shelter for a large number of kids and I though worked great though it has a huge footprint. There are several companies which are still making 4+ person pyramid / tipis such as Mountain Laurel Designs and Seek Outdoors, maybe OWare, and numerous companies that used to make them that you might be able to find used but good conditions including GoLite/MyTrailCo, Black Diamond and MSR.Jul 7, 2021 at 9:30 pm #3721311Brett ABPL Member
Titanium Goat used to have tipis as well but I suppose they’re no longer in business. Another used option?Jul 8, 2021 at 6:57 am #3721319Brad RogersBPL Member

Locus Gear makes a version of the old MLD Circus Tent. The footprint would be huge but I think it slept 8.Jul 8, 2021 at 11:47 am #3721331Logan KidwellBPL Member
Not sure if they are still in business, but McDane Tents makes awesome large shelters.
