We absolutely LOVE this tent. It is simple enough for me to put up by myself (I"m almost 50, short, and slightly overweight). We use a queen size mattress on half of the tent and the other half has a twin cot for our dogs and we have PLENTY of room for other things. Also, there is a nice little hook in the center of the tent that can be used to hang a lantern. The porch feature is also nice. We have had a lot of fellow campers ask what kind of tent it is because they like it so much.
