    FANTASTIC! The first time we set this tent up, it was in the house, just to get an idea… Took us about 15-20 minutes. It wasn’t bad at all. But it DOES take two people!! Our first experience on the road with it took us to the Grand Canyon where we arrived at 9:00pm. It took us again less than 25-30 minutes to set it up (in the dark) using only a couple flashlights.. Do make sure you stake the corners down FIRST before you raise it. You need one person outside the tent, and one inside to raise it. After that, using the stakes to secure it was a breeze… Having so many windows and a full mesh ceiling was great for star gazing after a long day. We put a KING sized mattress in the second room, and had plenty of space to walk and move around.. This tent is so big, our puppy (Shih Tzu) Kujo, got plenty of exercise just running from the front door back into the 2nd room.

    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!” 🙂

    I just returned from our first camping trip with this tent, two nights at Lake George, NY. In the end, the elements beat us and our tent, and we only spent one night in it, but the 25-year camping veterans next to us didn’t make it through the second night either.
    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.
    -easy setup with only four anchor points for the main support poles also contributes to instability. The long side of the tent is 16 feet long and you have only two main supports and an angled anchor pole for the screen room.
    -the huge size makes it tough to find a completely level spot for the entire footprint. I think our tent fell in on one side partly because we had one corner at a slight uphill angle and that put a lot of strain on that one cornet pole.
    -it’s heavy and a little bulky. I think it is probably close to 25 pounds, so you aren’t going to want to carry this baby very far.
    -there are four angled joints that hold the roof poles to the side poles. The fit is not very tight, and if you lose even one of these, you are not going to be able to set up the tent. I plan to glue these to one of the poles, because they are black and easy to lose while breaking camp.

    Lessons learned:
    -I would try to set up so that the front door faces into the wind. The back side of the fly really does not come low enough to keep wind from getting under it. On this trip, that wasn’t possible because this would have put the entrance about three feet from a significant drop off.
    -seal the seams and waterproof the fly
    -buy extra stakes (the guylines only get flimsy metal pegs that don’t provide much holding power), and bright-colored guylines (the included lines are black which are invisible in the dark)
    -I would not use this tent in temps below 60 or in winds above 10mph, especially if this were your only shelter option
    -I probably could have used a tarp to create a more angled face for the tent side facing the wind, but 3am in a wind storm is not when I do my best thinking and really shouldn’t be necessary.

    I live in Utah with my wife. When we started looking for a tent, there were a few critical criteria:

    – 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. We ended up fitting 6 adults, a card table and a cooler for beer into the front room comfortably and were complimented by all on the awesomeness of our tent. Additional drinks were located in the “sleeping quarters”. Even with a double-high queen mattress, there was ample room for anything else we wanted to keep dry.

    THIS IS A HUGE TENT! It may not fit all campsites. It certainly wouldn’t fit the standard sites at Mirror Lake. Also, since it’s so huge, you’re likely to get water pooling under the tent. None of it actually got into the tent, amazingly enough, but it made for a mess when we broke the tent down. The huge-ness had an important side effect: all the dirt tended to stay in the front room so our bedroom stayed clean. That, in turn, kept the bed clean which made sleeping that much more enjoyable.

    BIG TENT, SMALL PACKAGE. It may be huge but it is surprisingly light and fits into a small package. I wouldn’t recommend back country camping with it, of course, but you don’t have to worry about getting tired lugging the bag around if need be. Incidentally, I do have a little difficulty getting the tent into the package but mostly because of my rolling techniques… if done correctly every time, it’ll be snug but not too snug.

    I’d highly recommend this to anyone that enjoys the wilderness but requires a good night’s sleep. Excellent for families and party campers alike!

    My husband got this tent to use next to his truck at basecamp for hunting. It is the right size for one person and a pack, or two small people and no gear.

    The zipper broke the second night, but only along the bottom, and it was too cold for misquitos so it was a non-issue for him. However, if you want the “security” of having your doors zipped, be aware.

    The “rain fly” is laughable. It is about 12″x18″ and JUST covers the top vents, not the whole top of the tent. If it’s raining: take a tarp, you will need it.

    The bottom is waterproof and did not require an additional ground cloth for our use, but it is not what one would call “sturdy”.

    For a $20 tent it served it’s purpose. It is very lightweight and compact, provided minimal shelter (mostly for privacy) and is super-easy to set up. If you are looking for a good tent to use over and over, you might want to buy higher quality, but if you need a semi-dispoable tent for a weekend or emergency, this should meet your needs.
