I bought two of these tents from Walmart.com, and went to my store to pick them up. You'll need a truck to get a tent; it comes in two big, 6.5' boxes that are rather heavy without help.
I bought this product for use at my wedding. I needed a sheltered space for twelve 5' round tables, as well as the space people take up around said tables. After setting up just the roof section of the first tent myself today, I am confident I'll have enough room for everyone to stay dry and/or shady for my big day.
It took about a fifty minutes to get everything out of the box, in position, and set up by myself. The instructions were fairly clear, but the canopy did provide a slight challenge when I went to bungee it all down. It felt a hair too small. I followed the recommended sequence for bungees, and the canopy is nice and snug. Without the optional walls, there are some odd grommets without a purpose flapping on the trim pieces.
Also, the trim pieces on the ends do not look like the trim in the pics on the product. They don't come to a wider section at the top as shown; it's more of a continuous margin, like the sides. I don't mind terribly, but it would be nice to show it accurately on the product image.
While reading the instructions, you come to realize at the end that the manufacturer seems to strongly recommend anchoring your tent with an optional kit...which you haven't got (of course). I am going to have to rely upon nine inch nails to pin it down with the provided feet. We'll see if I have a calamity by tempting fate in this manner.
Lastly, there are warnings about this sucker making a wonderful kite, and it recommends you take the canopy off if there's a storm. Which kind of defeats the purpose, don't you think? Oh well.
Hope this helps.
