I bought the tent mostly because of the AC portal and low price. We just returned from our first weekend camping trip. We had fair weather so I can not comment yet on its ability to endure foul weather, but the AC and separate electricity portal were very nice amenities. The entire tent seems to be of reasonable quality. I'm a little concerned the wires connecting some of the poles will eventually break, but I think we will get out money's worth before then. We left the screen zipped and pushed the AC flush against it so the air was entering the tent, but no bugs and ran the plug from the outside. We propped it on a cinder block. It cooled it and removed enough humidity to make sleeping much more comfortable, not a fridge by any means, but you could definitely tell a difference from outside the tent. I think I will take a fan next time as well to circulate the cool air throughout the tent better.
The tent is a great height inside, my 6'1" husband could walk all around without stooping. I am short, but the 2 of us were able to put it up with relative ease once we figured out the color coding. "Ivory", "White" and "Silver" all look alike, but can be distinguished by looking at numbers and descriptions on the instructions. We did use a tarp underneath for extra protection. We kept the baby in a pack-n-play on the "front porch" portion, it is fairly seemless from the sleeping portion of the tent with a flap between. Overall, very pleased with this purchase and looking forward to many more summer camping trips with AC.
