The first room is great to leave all your bags,cloths,shoes etc....and it has a floor in it, which is a BIG plus so you are not walking on dirt like some other two room tents...
The 2 nights we spent at the Grand Canyon (May 10-11,2010)-(to verify winds) we experienced 35+ mph winds.. This tent DID NOT MOVE! And the reason it didn't move was because it was securly tied all the way around. The only thing we could hear was the wind. Ya the sides flapped around a bit like most tents, but what do you expect, they aren't solid walls. We have recieved many compliments on this tent..
I researched every 8-12 person,family tent out there with three things in mind..1) Tall enough to move and walk around in. 2) It had to have a screen ceiling and windows. 3) Large enough for a KING SIZE air mattress. 4) Had to have shock cords...BINGO !! I HIGHLY recommend this tent to everyone. When Wenzell designed this, they found a winner.... I am so proud of this tent, We can't wait to go on our next road trip...
Walmart had the best price of anyone.. I "researched it!" :)
- Had to fit a double-high queen mattress (we like our sleep)
- Had to have a mesh roof for star gazing
- Had to have a gathering area for people to hang out in the event of rain
This tent totally fit the bill and we were able to test all the capabilities on our last trip. We camped at Butterfly Lake at 10,400 feet in the Uintas on a weekend expecting rain. As has been procedure every time I used this tent, I first A) layed a tarp down as the tents footprint to help extend the life of the tent floor and B) tied the tent down using the included ropes (mine were initially attached to the rain fly). If you buy this tent, you ABSOLUTELY have to tie it down each and every time you use it. Gentle winds can cause it to cave in if you don't... I know this for a fact. If you have two people, set up will take 15 minutes if you're slow. If you're by yourself (not recommended. Why would you be using this tent, anyway?) it'll take you half an hour because the thing will keep caving in on you.
Anyway, since we were expecting rain, I also took the initiative and added the rain fly for the first time. It was frighteningly easy... I really thought that I'd done something wrong. Velcro, hooks and a few choice tie-downs are used to attach the fly either directly to the metal frame or to obvious locations on the tent itself. Total time? Maybe 2 minutes between me and my wife.
WATER PROOF? Mine was. I had treated the floor seams of the tent several weeks earlier but didn't do anything special to the floor or walls themselves. Regardless, the tent stayed dry through 3 straight days of nearly-constant rain.Read more ›
Overall, the tent is huge, nicely designed for sleeping and storing gear, but that design also makes it unstable in foul weather.
My 13 year old son and I were able to set this tent up in about 20 minutes with little difficulty. You really do need two people to get the fly over the roof, but one person might be able to get the main body of the tent up by themselves.
Things I like about the tent:
-plenty of room and a nice high roof that a six foot person could easily stand up in
-easy set up
-the screen room can be closed up and used for sleeping, and it has a floor
-construction seems very good, very little leakage on the seams in the face of 20+mph wind and torrential rain (and I didn't seal the seams as I'd intended to)
-the screen roof and lots of windows should make this a great summer tent
Things I didn't like:
-the large interior and open roof make it tough for two (or three) bodies to heat up. You lose most of your heat through the roof and we were cold despite sleeping bags, air mattress, extra blankets and thermals, and it was only in the low 50s that night.
-the windows do not fully zip across the top, so high wind will eventually blow them open.
-the design which gives you so much useable space inside creates hard corners and very long walls that make the tent very difficult to secure against wind. One corner kept falling down against the high wind, despite adding an extra guyline and attempting to angle the tent against the wind.Read more ›
