Can't Stand Up to the Task

Reviewed by Vintage Trailer Owner from Salem, Oregon on Thursday, October 14, 2010
This item looks cool as heck, but is pretty tough to set up correctly & definitely has a "set up learning curve." The first time we set it up (on the driveway to "practice") we broke the strap on the top where the poles cross. No big deal, but ...
We took it camping & set it up successfully (in about 1/2 hour with 2 of us), but the pockets where the poles go into began to rip out & I could see we'd have to have them reinforced if we continued to use the tent. When we took the tent down, one of the poles broke (the elastic inside snapped) and we decided it just wasn't worth the trouble if we had to "baby" it so much, so we sent the tent back.
