Had it for two seasons. Pretty tough tent, bad wind did break a pole once, got replacement no problem from mfg. Leaked slightly in strong rains. I thought it was a good tent.
I am a car camper. This tent is perfect for this.
Design: Three-Season with Screenroom
Ease of Setup: The first time is hard after that, it's a peice of cake. Much easier with 2 people setting it up though.

I am a car camper. This tent is perfect for this. I was skeptical buying it at first because I couldn't find many reviews on SwissGear, but it was on super sale at Sears so I figured I'd try it out at least.
I will admit, I am very pleased with the quality and the design. The attached screen room is a huge plus, and there is more than enough room inside the tent for mattresses or I'd say about five people and their gear.
The rainfly covers quite a bit of the tent but the one downfall to this tent is that it takes about 20 min to set up with two people. I was able to set it up myself in about 35 minutes, that's a downfall. It was great in the rain, not one drop inside the tent.
