Just got the tent a week ago. Have not taken it out camping yet but did have to put it up and sealed the seams. Most campers do not know that it is best to do this to prevent leaks. As for setting it up, I did it about 3 times and realised that the best way to do it is pull out the corners first and then pull out the 2 in the middle. This made it a lot easier for the poles to come out and lock into place. The first time that I did this, I pulled the poles out as I was walking around the tent in the order as I got to them. I noticed that when I got to the corners when the middle post was pulled out, I had a really hard time locking it into place. So when setting it up, lock the corners in place first and then the 2 side ones. Will let everyone know once we camp in it and if it leaks or not.
