First and main weakness is the center pole. Go your local hardware store and invest in a heavy set of screw connect pipe for the center pole. Don't for get to get Chair leg bottoms, rubber slip over type for the top and bottom length.
Next buy heavier stakes. Also get heavy guide lines(rope) and guide. There are sites on line that show you how to make guides from 1x4's.
The next weakness is the floor. Follow the instructions and put a tarp under your tent. Also find a in/out door rug to fit inside. This will help keep you from tearing the floor and make it more comfortable to walk on.
Finally set-up the tent up before you camp. Have at lest 3 days of good warm sunny weather. Let it air out and "de-factory" the first day. Then get a couple of cans of tent seal, (local big box store or sports store) and spray down inside and out the whole tent. Put extra around all the seams.
Another after thought. If your like me you will find it almost impossible to fold the tent to fit in the original carry bag. I would suggest investing in a army duffle bag to put the tent in and use the original bag for the hardware, hammer, flashlight , ect, anything else you might need to help in setup.
I can't wait to camping in it again. :)
Only trouble area is the zipper can run over the rain flap and get stuck, taking it slow and easy can work it without issues. Just replaced the flimsy pulls on the zippers with bright para cord and can find them and use zippers easily. Also replaced the guy lines, the black lines are invisible and everyone trips on them. (Guide gear should put hi-visibility lines on them). Yellow/green para cord is for me bright enough in daylight,dusk also is visible.
Would buy this tent again.
