we bought this tent as a supplement to our ever expanding tent collection - ( a gelert Rocky 3 purchased for touring by bike, and a coleman waterfall 5 for week long trips)and wanted something that would go up quickly on a friday evening so we could make the most of a weekend camp. We had not tested it beforehand, but found that it went up quickly - about ten to 15 minutes at most. The inner and groundsheet is attached to the outer by a kind of webbing and we have found a couple of small tears in this after using it three times. This could be due to the battle of trying to get the cross poles into the corner holes. Its quite roomy - two adults with airbeds, and clothing kept in main bedroom. The tent has openings and a porch at both ends with the ground sheet at one end being upturned to keep out the elements. You can easily sit up and even on knees in bedroom your head wont touch the roof. To add to the versatility of this tent, we added a Coleman Classic AwningColeman Classic Awning - Grey
which extends the living area at the front of the tent to comfortably allow for cooking, eating and general enjoyment!
