Do NOT BUY THIS TENT!!
We bought it last year, and have used it twice. Last year went ok, just the divider hooks ripped off with very little pressure. The dividers are really TOO small for the opening, offering very little privacy. Okay, so I can sew the hooks back on or MAKE larger dividers.
THIS year was a different story. When we unpacked the tent we found that the shock cords for the poles had disintegrated. OK, so we went out and bought new cords and fixed the poles. What really frosts me is that, this year it rained. Not a heavy rain but steady. Our four boys might as well have been camping under a screen. Every seam, every corner, every door and window leaked. There was condensation? on every wall. Four boys, their sleeping bags, and ALL their belongings were soaked. We spent two days of our six day camping trip trying to correct the leaking, mopping up and then drying EVERYTHING! Our relaxing camping trip turned into a nightmare. Can you imagine camping with four soggy, tired, stressed out boys, age 9 to 15??? I cannot believe that ANYONE could possibly sell a camping tent, that would leak like this. Absolutely, totally unexceptable. (I am currently waiting for an E-mail response from Sears customer service)
