Customer Review: Great for Family Camping
I have used this tent twice so far, once in the Texas hill country and Big Bend National Park. The tent offers plenty of room for my family of five. Even with everyone inside there is room for board games and other indoor activites. The windows are huge and offer a teriffic view of the countryside. The tent is heavy so don't even think about taking it too far from the car. Now I know why the carrier case comes with rollers.
Customer Review: Great tent, but look out for high winds
used this tent for the first time last week! lots of room, pretty easy to set up, was in MOAB Utah rock crawling for a week, tent was great had all my gear neatly in the tent lots of room, woke up to some wind on tuesday morning, checked all the stakes, and tie down lines, and went wheeling, when hours out on the trail the winds really picked up, by the time got back to the KOA, it was late eve, and the tent was trashed rain fly was shredded, tie down lines were riped from the tent, pretty much the rain fly took the bulk of dammage, 2 holes and one broken pole in tent... watch out in high winds bigger the tent the more she wants to go flying! hopefull i can get a new rain fly and a pole, they said got over 50 mph gusts...

Many people think of tents as something you use to go camping. Well, that is true, but these days, they have other uses as well. A truly large tent can also be used for a wedding, a reception, party, a commercial or corporate function, and festivals and fairs. These commercial tents are as small as ten feet by ten feet, all the way up to ones that are one hundred feet wide! And, they can be either clear span (with no poles), the fancy tension tents, or the traditional pole variety.

In addition, many commercial tents come with flooring, lighting, heat and a stage. Best of all, you do even need to pay the cost of a purchase for a commercial tent if you prefer not; there are a number of firms that rent them. Not only do they rent them, the companies will come out to your site, set the tent up and then return to take it down when your event has completed - a true beginning-to-end service.

Conventional Tents for Your Camping Needs

Then there are the standard tents of commercial grade: the ones for a family camping trip. You can buy or rent small standard tents that simply lay out on the ground and have poles for support, or you can step up a bit on the scale of fanciness. There are tents that literally set themselves up when you pop them out of the box! Some commercial tents even come with miniature air conditioners.

Next, there are larger tents for families with a couple of kids. These tents have multiple rooms connected by "tunnels" - allowing Mom and Dad a retreat from the kids - and a large common room where everyone can gather. A tent of this size not only provides outdoor convenience, but is also much more fun for the kids.

Of course, you can't just spend all your time inside, but there is the pesky issue of flies, mosquitoes and other flying, biting, and generally nasty insects. These are not a problem if you have the right tents. Several models are designed with what can be called a "screened in porch." Some are free-standing, but many attach to the front of the tent. This allows the family to come out of their tent, sit and eat, chat, play games, etc. all without being eaten alive. In addition, you can also buy collapsible furniture to go in this "porch" area so that your camping time is as comfortable as possible.
