Great for the starting camper or car camper. I've had this tent for over 8 years now and it's still trucking along.

I've had to replace the fiberglass poles with aluminum ones and spray the fly down with water repellent spray. Aside from that, this tent can take a beating, ranging from hail storms, 50+mph winds and 30F temps.

It does weigh a lot compared to tents it's compared to, but it is super durable. Not sure how this version compares to the newest generation.
