I went camping with my two sons for 3 days in this tent. I have to say that it is a good-looking tent which does well against heavy rain. It is simple to set up (about 5 mins) and take down. There are 4 pockets along the inside walls and another compartment in the top, which is nice. I don't mind that the shell zips one way and the inside compartment zips opposite. It did well to keep the bugs out as well. There are also overhand areas to store gear, shoes between the tent and shell. Now, for the issues. It comes with 2 doors for the shell and the tent which comes out to 4 zippers total. One of the zippers needs extra attention when zipping or it will not work properly. I put that zipper towards the rear and tried not to use it much. I recommend buying a tarp and cutting it to the size of the tent in order to provide an extra water barrier and to prevent water from pooling between the tent bottom and the Tarp. Also, the aluminum stakes are junk. Buy aftermarket ones that will not bend. Overall, I would buy this tent again. The problems can be mitigated and it has nice features: space for 3, place to store bags, pockets for headlamps, etc, and it kept us dry through a 4 hr thunderstorm I'm FL.
This is a wonderful tent. Once one figures out how to set it up, it goes quickly, can be done by one person. It rained the first time I used it and the inside was entirely dry with the provided fly. There was no condensation on the fly that dripped into the tent. It rained again and again over the next few days and I was always dry inside the tent. In addition, the tiny "vestibule" created by the fly entrance provided a great place to leave footware before entering the tent when it was wet. Because the tent itself is mostly of netting simply covered by a fly when you want, one can't expect it to retain heat well at night. However, the 3rd night I used the tent, the temperature dropped to 26 degrees and I managed to survive the night even though I didn't have a great sleeping bag. Lastly the design of this lightweight tent makes it so that when it comes to take it down, you can unzip the mesh door, turn it upside down and any leaves, etc. comes right out before folding it up. The only suggestion I have is to get the aftermarket aluminum poles if you'll be taking the tent backpacking. Doing so would save a bit of weight. That said, the tent is a great buy at a great price and it arrived very promptly.
I was worried at first because the box was left on the porch busted open. I later found the UPS driver gave my wife a bag of bolts that fell out, so that was really lucky. Once I put the hitch in the receiver, I noticed how VERY WOBBLY is was. Well, that only got worse after I put the hanger bars on and then a chair. There was no recognition of this obvious deficiency in the instructions, so I'll have to figure something out. I also wish the bars held the chairs a little further apart, but I expect it will do okay. It's definitely strong and heavy, which I'm happy about! A 2" (class 3) hitch is heavy duty and so are things you put in it. I find it comical that some people seem to think it's too is heavy, while others think it might be able to support enough weight. Both would seem to need more exercise! Now, I need to find the best chairs I can. The ones here are generic, so I don't trust them. Most have hit and miss reviews anyway. My current generic one has strong fabric, but the finish on the wood dowels is flaking off. Aluminum is a must have next time!
