The tent is supported by strong poles. The poles make it easy to set up. In fact, you can do it in around 15 minutes. However, the process requires two peoples to assists each other in handling the poles. The materials increase the stability of the tent. On a windy season, you cannot fear of being blown away. It is very stable and safe while camping. While inside the tent, you can place your items in hanging pockets without fear of fall as a result of wind. The manufacturers provide an assembling instructions manual for buyers to ensure even the new buyers understand how to set it up with a lot of ease. Also, the instruction manual provides guidelines to retain stability of the tent.

The tent has a good design and adequate space. When you compare the design with that of other tents, you will rate it high. Its exclusive design separates the sleeping rooms and screen rooms inside. Additionally, the tent has a resting place. The bedroom is well spaced to accommodate a standard queen air mattress for a family. The kids can access play rooms. All the available rooms are separated by a divider sheet panels attached at the 4 locations per side. The front room is low. Such design provides a great feature to store family property. These features increase the demand and the positive aspect of the tent.

Cool-Air port ventilation system

The shelter maintains ventilation via adjustable venting system. It is possible to adjust airflow in the tent. Also, windows and doors are well designed to allow enough ventilation. However, they allow breeze inside the tent. The rear mesh vent creates a floor breeze. The exterior door enables you to enter the screen room and provide adequate ventilation in the room. The main door is designed as an inverted ‘T’ and the fabric of the door does not have ties. The design of the doors allow proper ventilation in the rooms but separate the bedroom from the screen room. Every room needs its type of ventilation mechanisms.


  • The tent incorporates a bathtub bottom floor. 
  • Water proof roofing system.
  • Easy process of setting up.
  • Appropriate design and adequate space.
  • Appropriate ventilation features like windows.


  • It is heavy to carry.
