I purchased this tent as a birthday gift for my husband as our previous tent (an Ozark Mountain) was pushing 14-years-old and still in good shap, but wanted something different. The tent sleeps 10 and came with shelves and a bay window, remote control light all of which was attractive. It also comes in a roll on bag much like a travel bag on wheels. The rainfly goes on over the outside of the external frame.
Well, don't waste your money on this one. It is a great tent on a dry non-windy day, but a small rain storm blew in. It wasn't overly windy. Even with a tarp hung above the tent we got wet. I had previously sealed all the seams especially around the windows. The water still came in right good. The flap over the outside zipper at the door leaked badly no matter how we tried to seal it. The wind gusted a bit at about 15mph and the center side support kinked and when it did the whole right hand side of the tent came down ripping about a 2 foot section in length on the top (roof) of the seam. The shower hung on for about an hour and we had a great amount of water in the tent. The poles are not easily replaced and are expensive and I sewed the seam shut only because I intend to get the money out of it anyway and let the kids use it for a summer time play room.
Buyer Beware! also should you buy this one anyway. Put a piece of plywod in the bottom of the roll on bag or the wheels break off!
