I bought this tent to take my family of 6 camping in Oklahoma. While there the temps dipped into the 20's unexpectedly so I wanted to cover the roof with a tarp we had to keep in the warm air from our tiny space heater. The air poles weren't strong enough to support any weight on top of the tent. This also lead me to realize that if we had a branch fall from above we wouldn't have any protection either. Overall just not happy with the stability and rigidity of this tent.

Our family of 7 recently acquired this mobile mansion for weekend summer camping. I found pitching it with the provided air pump to be quite easy. It was a little windy on the day we were pitching camp, which added a little bit of a challenge, but this is not the fault of the tent. The floor of the tent is quite thin, which keeps it lightweight. Since this tent is way too large for backpacking, I'd say that the weight savings was not necessary. I would have given the tent a full five stars had the floor been thicker or if the Footprint come with the tent. We attempted to use a huge tarp, which turned out to not quite cover the entire bottom of the tent. I'd definitely buy again and recommend to others.
