I have owned this tent for about 3 years now and I am very happy with it. In my opinion, the polyethylene tub style floor is the best for keeping water out.
We have used this tent on several camping trips. On two of these, we had very heavy rain all night long. The amount of water that entered the tent was so little, I was literally able to wipe it up with 4 paper towels.
I did seal the seams on the tent when I bought it which is something that should be done on all tents. You may still get a drip or two which is to be expected, but nothing worth mentioning. (If you secure a cheap tarp on top of the tent you won't get any drips.)
The tent is very roomy. We fit two queen size air mattresses inside with plenty of room left for gear. Like all tents, even though it claims to hold 7 people, it really isn't realistic. I would say 4 to 5 people is about right. The tent goes up easy, but it is definitely a two person job. For the price, it can't be beat.

Not a happy camper! Roomy and spacious at 16'x10'. Goes up well, holds IN water real well!
Windy and rainy conditions gets plenty of water inside. Took it back for a refund. This would probably be a great tent for Arizona as long as it doesn't storm.
