My wife and I have run the full gamut of camping.

Excerpt: My wife and I have run the full gamut of camping. Truck campers, 5th wheels, boats, as well as a number of tents of all sorts. We decided we needed a tent for those times when we didn't want to bring the RV along or we wanted to take a week long ATV trip.

Excerpt: This is a great family car camping tent. You can split it up into three parts if you're backpacking... but it is BIG! Not really lightweight. Sturdy for the fact that it only has a single pole-crossing, but it will definitely move around in stiff winds.

Excerpt: The poles on the tent slip apart constantly when sliding through the tent. The cord does not provide any real tension. The aluminum ferrule bent and broke on our last trip rendering it useless. Fortunately, I realized one section of the pole could be removed from each side.

Excerpt: On the plus side: Generally this tent is good for car-camping, river rafting/canoe trips. While heavy, it is quite roomy, and at 72" tall holds up well in 30+ mph winds and heavy rain. It will move quite a bit in strong winds, but never fear: it will not collapse.

Excerpt: After suffering through a couple catastrophic failures of a cheapo family tent, I decided to cough up the extra bucks and buy a Bedouin 6. I'm extremely glad I did. It's very roomy for my 4-person family when car camping.

Excerpt: Awesome basecamp tent for the backcountry or family camping. After a trip with the family in southwest Florida I found this tent very roomy with two doors and a full coverage rainfly that has two vestibules front and rear that will hold plenty of gear.
