I have owned this tent for about 8 months now and have taken it on several trips and am very pleased with it. This is a huge tent that features a lot of nice "creature comforts."

First off the steep walls allow you to stand in the majority of the tent. It is a two room tent with a sewn in wall with doors that zip easily. You can use the entrance side as a screen room since it features very large windows. The second room has bay windows that you can keep open and not worry about rain coming in. It also has bay "cyclone ports" near the floor that you can put a fan by to circulate air better. It includes a large hanging shelf, gear loft, cupholders for the wall and even a remote controlled light.

It is a very heavy tent designed for car camping but they include a nice bag that has a hard bottom complete with wheels. Another nice feature of the bag is it expands so if you need to fit something else in with the tent or if you have to fold it in a hurry you can get a few more inches. I have assembled it by myself but it is much easier with two people. All of the major seams are sealed from the factory which is nice.

I've camped with friends and we had two twin air matresses in the second room and had space for luggage with us there and a couple of chairs in the front. When I camped with my family we had a Queen sized air mattress in the second room and a pack-and-play in the front and we had enough elbow room to move around.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this tent despite its high price tag.
