The center height of the Eureka! Solitaire is 28 inches.
The Eureka! Solitaire is lightweight which makes it easy to take with you when you travel. The large mesh roof makes it perfect for stargazing while you drift off to sleep in warmer weather. The roof zipper provides an additional exit point. The tent is 8 feet long and 2 feet 8 inches wide. The floor is made from 70D nylon taffeta while the wall is made from 40D no-see-um mesh.

What Customers Are Saying
Solo trekkers say that this tent is lightweight, easy to set up and affordable. Even a buyer at 6’2” was able to comfortably fit inside the tent without touching the sides. Let’s have a look at a few reviews.
“The first time I ever set this tent up was in a snow storm at night by flashlight and it was up and ready in no time. It was much warmer than expected, the night temp got down below 13 degrees but I stayed warm.”
“This tent is extremely good for its designed purpose; a lightweight backpacking tent. It packs extremely small and light. I have used it in all night rain and wind with no leaks. I am 6’2″ and can fit in the tent without touching any sides…”
“For the money, I love this tent. I used it every night on a 3000 mile motorcycle trip (9 nights), and slept in it in cold weather, pouring rain, and light rain.”
Pros & Cons
The Eureka! Solitaire Tent can be set up in just a few minutes. You will need some stakes, which are included, to support the tent. There should be some room for your luggage as the tent is 8 feet long. Assuming a height of 6 foot still leaves around 2 foot for luggage. The tent is waterproof and does a good job of keeping out the water, even in stormy weather.
The Solitaire Tent is not large enough to sit up in which some people find a little disappointing. If you want a tent to sit up and move around in then you may need a 2 or 3 person tent.
The Eureka! Solitaire Tent for one person is a great little tent to protect you from the elements while you’re out camping. It’s easy to put up and will keep out the rain even without any additional sealing.
