My family found itself in need of a new tent. There are 8 of us total, and we had always used two tents up to this point (one for the girls, and one for the boys). This time, however, I wanted to try to get a tent that would be big enough for all of us.
When I saw this tent on-line I thought it would be perfect. There would be one side room for the girls, one for the boys, and then my wife and I could sleep in the middle (together for a change). On top of that the price was rite.
Well, we tried it out a couple of weekends ago (having storms with quite a bit of wind and rain the second night), and I was not disappointed.
The tent is huge. It could easily sleep more than 10 if need be. It held up well under the wind and rain. What a value!
There are only a few points I was disappointed about.
1) The rain fly takes 2 reasonably tall people to put on (5' 6" at least). It would be very tough for just one adult.
2) The side rooms are not "free standing". That is, if the stakes holding the sides and the rain fly come out the side rooms will fall.
3) With point 2 in mind, if you buy this tend, you may want to buy some different stakes for use when you have relatively soft ground to drive them into.
