REI doesn't make this anymore, and I haven't run across anyone else who has experience with one, but for car camping in potential wind, this is a palatial dream. I've only used it with two people, and with floor measurements of 108"x96" (or so), it is huge, but the unique part of the design is in its low height. It's no taller than a standard 3 person dome. On those windy nights out at Joshua Tree when the coleman slabsided tents are getting plastered, the wind just slips over the top of this. This would be a great group tent for a backpacking trip as well. It has a huge vestibule that will handle way more than what I've ever asked it to (sorry, no measurements, I just found this site and am at work).
