Positive facts: This tent is roomy. Setup is less than 15 mins with 2 people. Instructions are clear, but it helps to set it up first in your yard before going camping. There are no electrical ports, but you run all the cables through the door and close the zippers. The dome design will keep water out. Large enough inside to accommodate 3 queen size air mattresses. You even used the detachable “wall dividers” to have each mattress be in its own room one night just for fun. The tent packaging is surprisingly small and if you pay attention to how it was folded, you can repack it back into it’s bag without any difficulties. Camped with it on a mountain in the rain and you stayed perfectly dry overnight.

The bad sides of the tent:

The loop tore off the side of the tent where it stakes toa the ground. The door zipper is of poor quality. This tent needs a more substantial door zipper. The poles pull the tent so tight that the door is almost impossible to zip closed. This tent has trouble fitting back into the carrying case.The rain fly does not adequately cover the windows.

Really nice tent for the price. Without the rain fly it breathes nicely in warm weather. Other thoughts:


Really nice tent for the price. Without the rain fly it breathes nicely in warm weather. Other thoughts:

  • Extremely well made, all seems and fabric are very durable
  • Easy set up (can do with 1 person, but 2 make it much easier)
  • Well ventilated, It was 95 degrees and sunny where I camped, but the many vents and mesh roofing kept us all very cool
  • Features are very nice, the room dividers, lamp hook, outisde foot mat, and rain tarp are all great add ons and you will use them
  • Very good price for what you get
  • Enough space
  • Easy to assemble,
  • Well ventilated.
  • Could easily fit 2 queen air beds or more
  • Nice spot for inside tent light!
  • Interior was roomy (2 queen air bed + rooms for games) and good height,


  • Lack of water resistant, side windows are always mesh-open.
  • This tent yet may not be big enough for the 8 people it claims to fit.
  • The door zippers are not as “hefty”
  • Could not fit back in original box, bought a bag instead

Overall, this is a great tent for a family. This tent is a quality product. No product is free from shortcomings.
