Spacious: What can I say! just WOW! alot of room for kids, the dogs, the wife, me, and our gear. I am not a small guy by any means 6'4 and about 350 pounds, I fit in this tent and have room to stand and move around.
Ventilated: this tent has great air flow due to the multitude of windows in the tent.
Extremely durable bottom: the bottom of this tent is extremely thick and able to withstand the rugged conditions we were camping in. the side of that mountain had alot of jagged rocks there, you can only clear it so much, no punctures, no tears.
Very waterproof: had a nice downpour during the trip, no leaks and it withstood a decent wind as well.
Easy setup: once you know how, and I recommend setting up at home in your yard to get feel for tent. we did and it saved us a ton of time.
The cons are few and far between but there are a couple.
short canopy: the canopy on this tent is short, as you can see in the original picture the windows are slanted past the canopy, this makes it so you cannot open windows while raining. Makes it a bit warm in there.
doors do not have screens: I know, minor complaint, esp. since there are so many windows.
initial directions are horrid (FYI sewn into the bag): the instructions leave alot to be desired. at the end of this I will post some helpful tips on initial setup.
no inner pockets: ok this is another small issue, easily alleviated. We stripped the removable pockets from our old tent. we giving this one a way, the new people cant complain, free is free.
The con list does seem long but extremely piddly.
To give you a break down we will divide the tent in fore and aft areas, the fore section in the sun area, and has 6 windows. The aft area, where we shoved the kids, has 2 windows.
The first thing you need to be aware of is the manufacture forgot to tell you on the top page that 2 poles are shorter. This was either an oversight, did it for a laugh, or the manufacture hates you. These shorter poles go in the last section(aft) my recommendation is to find these and mark them, we used red nail polish.
These are placed on the sides of the aft section.
in the middle section are nylon braided loops with metal rings. dont run the poles through them, no matter how much you want to. I makes it impossible to get the canopy on later.
Follow this order for a little less stress when putting the four pole systems in this order from fore to aft.... D A B C
Staking out the tent is a must. I would suggest doubling the fore and aft stake sets. the canopy can have the guy ropes place, I recommend this. page 2 of instructions tell how.
This took as a while to get good at, however once you get it down it is an easy venture to say the least.
fore and aft sections folded inwards to make a rectangle.(about 2 feet of aft and 5 of fore area), now fold in half and then into thirds. Place tent bag and folded canopy in middle and roll.
When placing in bag we found once you get it zipped half way there are buckles on the sides. this allows you to 'clip and zip' making it easier to pull the zipper shut.
All in all and magnificent tent with only a few minor draw backs. I do not regret buying this tent, and would recommend it to anyone with a large family.
I researched to the FULLEST every detail of every family tent..I was so excited, the shipping time frames were amazing I got it in 3 business days. When it arrived I immediately set it up in my back yard. The first thing I noticed is "this thing is gigantic." I'm a girl who's only put together one 4 person tent before, however I barely looked at the instructions it was pretty self explanatory, the first time was a little tricky but after that I had a rhythm down and could put it up and take it down by myself no problem. Once up it was fantastic, big, tall, and beautiful even got the top cover on by myself. I have no regrets in my buying decision which is why I took my time searching.. I've used it three times now so far camping, Things that make this tent great- Big/ a lot of space 2-3 rooms, two of the rooms can fit a queen air mattress comfortably in each , the big front room can fit like 2 air mattresses,lol or maybe even 3.. I used the large room for my room, one back room for my son, and the other room for storage. I not only wanted space I wanted a lot of ventilation and it had plenty, when it was hot during the day it was very breezy I even took a nap and it was blissful, and when it got cold at night I was able to zip up every window, and that was an important feature.. A lot of the Family tents screen rooms did not zip up which was a big negative for me and some didn't even have a floor in the screen room "WHAT" I just thought that was silly.. Well this one does have a floor, makes for a lot of sweeping though. Also I need compact, so I was very satisfied with how easily it went back into the bag with poles and all. This tent in the bag was smaller than other campers bags and my tent was like 2X's bigger..I love how I got compliments up the wazoo people even wanted to take a tour and my tent now has the nick name of the Taj Mahal.. All of this gave me the validation that I got an awesome/perfect tent.. The Tent was very sturdy but I always recommend the heavier duty stakes. I love this tent so much and even with seeing all the new house looking tents I'm still happy with mine and no regrets..FYI looks just like the pictures just better way better.
This weekend was my first time with the tent in bad weather, it was a two nighter with about 60 other people in my camp group. The First Night Friday: the Winds were horrific We were all terrified and didn't sleep a wink that night in fear of a tornado I live in Texas and we were deep in a huge camp area I didn't even know if we would hear sirens.. but the sound of the wind in the trees and the the way it hit the tent was just to much to sleep, I thought it was just going to take the tent and throw us around, but it didn't. So I still rate the tent a 5 star because the tent held up and held up well. Because the design of the tent has a lot of stake holes and I know that helped out a lot I did use the heavy duty stakes too, but I believe the tent stayed grounded because there were so many stakes.. The Second Night Saturday: The storm came in thunder,lightning and heavy rain.. with lightning it was dangerous inside any tent and we almost blew the horn to sleep in the cars, but the thunder and lightning eventually died down, however the heavy rain did not it rained none stop from 3pm Saturday on through til the time I packed up at 10am Sunday morning I only had one small puddle but that was because I missed tying down one part of the top cover so I'd say it was my fault, the only time rain got in was when I packed it up in the pouring and rain and muddy ground, I should have used a tarp underneather.. All in all I was very satisfied with the way the tent held up with the bad weather, I thought the windows would be a problem because they don't have a zipper at the top just velcro but they didn't leak at all.
With that noted, this tent is extremely spacious. In the 'bedroom' area, I was able to fit a queen size air mattress with room to walk on either side (crammed, but still room). In addition, I was able to have another queen size air mattress in the front of the tent near the windows with fair room to maneuver. Plus, I had a small card table setup with four chairs in the 'entry way.' Naturally, it was crammed but there was still room to walk.
Doesn't get any better for a tent of this price if you ask me!
