Summary: We are happy with the tent. The first time we set it up in the yard we had an overnight thunderstorm with wind gusts over 50MPH. With nothing inside the tent it did blow over during the night and fracture a couple of poles. The next day we grabbed the corners and set it back up. I did tape up the poles and bought a few larger tent stakes to give me a little more confidence in securing it in place during high winds.
Summary: This is a large tent for a six man tent. What is nice is the covered 'foyer' section at the front of the tent. The foyer section does not have a floor so it is important to lay a tarp prior to erecting the tent (I used a 20'x10 that worked fine). The foyer section is about 50% of the tent so the sleeping area is not that large.
Summary: I had to return this tent because only the sleeping room has a floor, the screen room does not have a floor! Initially when I purchased this tent, I spent over an hour with the guy in the camping department stating I wanted to put the parents on one side and the 4 kids on the other, planned out how everyone would fit, etc. The packaging includes the entire tent size in the floor size, but neglects to tell you the screen room is non-floored.
Summary: The order arrived on time and at almost the lowest price I found. My review will copy most others I've read. The tent is spacious. Although only 1/2 the tent is floored, a simple tarp and $30 worth of indoor/outdoor carpet and there is room for more sleepers. My girlfriend and I bought this tent specifically for music festivals we attend.
Summary: This tent is a great product with well-written & easy to follow instructions for set-up. We set it up in or driveway a few days before our trip in about 10 minutes just so we'd know there wouldn't be any trouble once we got to our destination. The sleeping quarters are spacious - we had one queen size and one twin size air mattress with room to walk in between and room for our suitcases. Large window openings let in the breezes.
Summary: I received the tent the tent in less than a week even though Amazon showed it out of stock and on back order. The tent is big, fairly heavy ( about 40 pound I guess) but easy to set up. Read the simple instruction before starting to set up the tent. My wife and I set ours up in windy weather in about 30 minutes the first time. I like the zippers they are big and heavy duty. There is a weather covering over the zippers.
