I've read a lot of the reviews after my wife bought this tent. So when i was setting up the tent I was looking for everything people complained about. The only thing I didn't like about the tent was the dividing walls didn't cover the whole height (only the top 6in. wasn't covered), and you can't have the door covered if you want the awning up but it still has the screen door.
The pros of this tent is worth the tent by all means. It's really big, has windows everywhere for max. air flow, easy to setup and take down. I can't see how people can say it blows away; put the stakes in on a 45 deg. angle and maybe it won't blow away.
And for those who says the tent leaks, what tent doesn't leak? Before you go camping spray the tent so you don't have a problem with it. Trust me if it rains your gonna get wet if you don't like it. get an rv because camping isn't for you.

I have this roomy 3 room tent and am very pleased with it. The first trip I did not waterproof it and got a little wet. After water proofing not a bad tent.
Set up was simple just want to let ALL know that you need to set the sides up first then the center. If not you will probably need to replace the poles because they will splinter. Luckily I still have the instructions and the 800 number works!!!!! 1-800-325-8368 (Wenzel) and am getting replacement poles soon. Until then the duct tape wrapping the poles has worked.

This is a great tent, I read some of the other reviews and question if those who have had leakage did you spray your tent down with sealer first. All tents require this.
I have had this tent for 3 years and never have I experienced any leakage and believe me I was stuck in some major thunderstorms in the middle the woods. Remember now, you have to spray the seams with this clear sealer that you can purchase just about anywhere for $3 or so.
I do have one problem with the tent and that is the top flexi poles broke and I cannot seem to find the manufacturer of this tent to have the poles replaced.

I bought this tent as a replacement for an old Coleman. I was impressed by its size and many windows and good air-flow. I was a little off put by the lack of a door cover with the canopy being up, but, lets face it if its raining you are not going to have the canopy up (because it would just collect rain).
What I find a bit disturbing was that after the first rainstorm with only a few good gusts of wind the rain fly ripped along the outer edge creating a flap that immediately flapped open allowing the rain to pour into the tent.
The good thing was, that was the side with storage dins for all the cooking stuff and camp gear. Our personal gear didn't get wet but after spending the money for it I would have liked it to last more than one rainstorm.

We just came back today from camping and I brought this tent that was 3 rooms it had openings on both sides of the tent and the rain tarp was large and it fit over the windows and the doors of the tent and let me tell you it was a good thing too cause we got about 2 hours of pouring down rain and I had maybe 2 small very small puddles of water. everyone piled up in out tent cause it was the only one rain was not coming through.
This was my very first time camping so I was really glad that the tent I picked out was the number one tent on our site. It was really large to you could fit 3 queen size beds in it. Well I could go on and on about how great this tent was I loved it.
The other 2 families that we went with are now talking about getting the same tent I had. I got it from walmart but when they went back to get it they were all gone and now they can't find the same one I have.

The first time we used the tent it leaked when the rain came. Only one room of the tent did not leak. In the other two rooms, it leaked at every seam and the rainguard leaked. Also the seams around the floor leaked and the connector seams leaked as well. It was a short rain and not a very hard rain that lasted about 1/2 an hour.
I would think for the price that was paid for this tent that it would hold up much better. I am not impressed at all and this was our first family camping trip and had to leave the campsite due to our belongings being wet. I will not purchase another Ozark Trail tent.

we went camping in Ohio this weekend and it rained for about an hour. The tent leaked at most all seams and st windows and door. The only one window did not leak. We has just bought the tent at Walmart the day before.
I am very surprised at how easily it leaked. My sister bought another tent there the same day and it did not leak at all. It was a different brand, but she paid the same price as I did.
