Rating: rated 1 of 5 stars
Price Paid: $299.99

Overall this tent is so poorly designed. Being that you have the 2 poles on either end it leaves a sag in your roof, even with the "storm ties" on the sides. I've been caught 2 rain storms and woke up soaking wet from the roof leaking and the seems near the head space.

I will never use this tent again and probably end up making a tarp out of it. I would not advise anyone buying it. If you don't believe me or wanna give it a whirl I will sell it for dirt cheap.
