For us it's perfect. As a couple, it has a large bedroom that takes a double inflatable mattress with plenty of room for bags and access around it. You could put another 2 singles in for the kids if needed. If you only camp in summer the living room will sleep 3 kids comfortably, tho if you have kids and go winter camping, go for the 3 room model.
The bedroom has solid inner fabric so doesn't le t the cold in, yet has massive vents and windows to open up to create a breeze on those hot nights. It also has it's own large door for easy access / packing / unpacking.
The dividing wall has a large access door and is both solid and meshed.
The front living room inner is made up of no see em mesh and has very large fly doors on all three sides which can be rolled up or poled out to make shaded areas and open up the view from inside, which is great if the mozzies are biting or it's raining. It's large enough to set up the kitchen in and still have room for a couple of large camp chairs.
The front door also has detachable walls fitted to create another room, or by using one wall, create a nice outdoor area protected from the sun / wind / rain.
There are several large sewn in pockets, hanging hooks and power entry points in both rooms.
This is a big 2 room tent! (Nearly 5M long and 2.6M wide) For it's size, it's very quick to erect and take down once you get the hang of it.
First time out took us 35 mins. Now we can have it up in 10 minutes if we need to. 15 mins cruzing..
The fly is a noticeably heavier pvc than most all tents that really is waterproof! There are extra guy ropes attached to the fly tho each has it's own zippered pocket so they are nice and neat when not needed and instantly available if the wind does pick up.. All of the window, door and vent ropes are also pocketed.
Best feature by far is the headroom, for a "dome" it has near vertical walls and is 2.4 meters high. The feeling of spaciousness is incredible. I'm 5'10" and I don't have to duck or crane my neck at all. Another bonus is large bags can be placed almost on the edge of the room without touching the walls making for more usable floor space.
Overall an excellent tent and great value compared to other "quality" brands like wolf.
+ Headroom. Quality materials, great design, easy to set up. I especially like the sewn in rope bags / pockets for the windows ect so you can't lose em and they're always where they should be!
