Bought this tent for a two day beach camping trip. We read the directions, but didn't do a dry run at home. It took less than half an hour to put the tent up, in fairly strong ocean winds. I used to camp in a dome tent in my younger days, but decided we needed something roomier, that we could stand up in, since becoming a 'certain age'. My husband is 6'1 and could stand easily. The screened in porch was perfect for eating without being divebombed by seagulls and for just sitting and watching the sunrise over the ocean. We had the nicest tent there! The tent was even easier to pack up and actually fit back into its carrying case.

A GREAT TENT!!!!
My husband and I purchased this tent online, we liked the way it looked, and sounded by the online description. The first time putting up the tent was a little confusing, they say "easy enough for one person", but you actually do need two people. Now that we have been camping and had set up the tent for the second time, it is easy, but like I said, you need two people. As for the inside, it was just my husband and I, it was roomy and plenty big enough for our elevated queen size air mattress. We had intended to utilize the front room as a "dining" area, but could not find a camping table in the store. Instead it was used to put our clothes and equipment in. It is a wonderful tent and I would recommend it to anyone camping. Also, when we first put up our tent in the back yard to see how it goes, we ended up breaking one of the flexible rods. My husband called the company, Wenzel, and they were kind enough to send us another rod free of charge and overnight. A+ for the tent and Wenzel!
A Great Tent
This is the best tent I've ever had!!! So easy to set up and everything fits back into the bag. I loved that it is so open, you can fall asleep looking out at the stars. Lots of head room in the back room. Screened porch is not as high, but still really nice. It is just like another room, but lots of screened windows. Anyone who loves nature and being out in it will love this tent!!
My husband and I took our 3 year old camping for the first time and we loved this tent! It was very easy to set up, we had two people, might have been a little more difficult with one. We loved the little sun room in the front, it was a great space to keep our clothes and other items we didn't want in our main "bedroom". We fit a queen size air mattress in the back room with still plenty of room for other items. We loved all the windows and vent in the back of the tent, it was the perfect size for us as well. Only complaints are that the windows once opened don't really have any place for the extra fabric to be tucked away or tied off so the windows kind of hang around on the floor, and the rounded door way to the back room, while it looks nice, it has a pretty high lip off the floor which we were constantly tripping over, especially my daughter. Other than that, we loved it and it was really easy to take down and pack away. Looking forward to using it again!
