    We have always been backpackers with small lightweight tents, so I was in new territory with a "family" tent. It was surprisingly light overall, packs small. Lots of room inside for Queen air bed and two sleeping bags with pads, plus all our stuff. It did not rain so unsure of leaking, but we did seal the seams of the fly based on previous experience with tents and camping. Easy to set up. Even though it was hot, we were comfortable inside. Only problem was one pole had a frayed end, but my friends assure me based on their experience with Coleman that they will replace it without question. One unexpected surprise was that the screen room had a floor in it... most other models we looked at did not. I can see how there are pros and cons to this feature, but it sure made the inside of the tent stay cleaner, and gave us extra space to store things up off the ground.

    I have tried out several tents and this is by far my favorite. Large open area inside and tall enough to stand up in. We had a queen size air mattress in the center with a lot of room left over for gear. I'm 5'10" and able to stand up straight to get dressed around the outside edge of the air mattress. This was very important to me after the last tents I had that claimed to have high ceilings. Another incredible feature is the screened off porch. I didn't think I would ever use it, but within minutes I was proven wrong. We set the tent up during a light sprinkle of rain mixed with snow and by the time we finished, the snow was really coming down. We set our camp chairs in the porch and found out quickly that we had a nice place out of the weather to kick off our mud-covered boots before we entered the main cabin area of the tent. With some of the worst weather conditions I've ever camped in, the tent was the cleanest I'd ever had. I give all the credit to the porch area. The tent is large enough to put a queen size air mattress and a twin size air mattress in with gear. I am very impressed with the overall quality and features of the tent. It was very easy to set up. Oh, and one last thing... NO LEAKS! We used this on the elk hunt in Utah this year in the Uinta Mountains. There was 4 inches of snow on the ground when we got there and in the morning another 2 inches on top of the tent. But wait, it's Utah... The snow turned to rain and by Sunday afternoon, all the snow had melted off. Two days of camping on the tent's first outing and we got rain, snow, sunshine and wind. The tent worked great regardless of the weather. Even with all the snow on top of it, it held true to form and didn't leak. This tent is definitely worth the money.

    I recently bought this tent for a camping trip with my wife, my sister, and her boyfriend. Oh and can't forget my new puppy (yellow Lab). The tent was easy to setup, less than 15mins, including the rain fly. I could not believe the room inside, it was big enough for 2 queen beds, and these were the tall box spring type. The tent stayed nice and clean due to the porch having a floor. I was surprised how big the porch was. We were able to fit a full size dog crate and coolers on the left side (facing tent looking from front). We still had plenty of room for some bags and shoes on the other side of the porch. I am 6'3" and was able to stand in the tent.

    • It can and has in mine. But... it's tight on space. If you don't need extra room for gear or if you can leave the gear in the porch area, you'll easily get 2 queen sized air mattresses in there.

    • Yes it can hold two queen mattresses but you'd be walking on them inside. They say it's an 8 person tent, but that's if you sleep on the ground in a sleeping bag.

    • maybe if you placed them toe to toe rather than shoulder to shoulder. We had five people in there and it was comfortably spacious. I think the 8 it is rated for would be uncomfortably tight.

    • Yes. That is what I used and it works fine. You'll have some room for some small items such as toiletries and a fan or a medium sized cooler but not much else.

    • A floor which is nice, the over hang is large enough to block the sun unless it is early or late depending on how you have it located. two folder chairs and a small table can fit for sitting in there and relaxing

    • has good bucket floor. However the fly is completely useless. It will flood in rain. It does have a vent along the front edge which is supposed to let the water drain. But it couldn't keep up with the flood we had in our tent.

    • The screen porch has a floor which WILL collect rain. The rain fly does nothing to protect the porch from the elements.

    • The porch has a floor. It's pretty cool. 2 people could sleep in that section if more room was needed. But it's great to take your shoes off, or sit and what outside if there's bugs or the weather is rainy or snowy.

    • Reviews on amazon and Coleman's website indicate it does have a floor in the screened in area but doesn't mention the thickness of the floor. Some tents use a tarp like floor and some use the same thin fabric as the walls.

    • There is no dedicated electrical access port. You would have to run a power cord through the front.

    • didn't see one. but we weren't using power so I wasn't really looking for it. You could easily get access via the front door out the porch.

    • Sort of. It has one on either side of the screened in porch but nothing into the main living quarters. I had to run it through the outer port and through the bottom of the front door, zipping the flap around it.

    • There is NO specific access port designed in the tent for electrical. However There is a small hole at the floor where the porch meets the tent. Where all 3 (tent, floor, and screened porch) meet there is a small opening which is designed in the fabric where you could get an extension cord through. It looks like a possible drain area for water.
