(google map)

Tall Man's Family Budget Tent! Large Fall camping tent. First cash takes it!

A large dome tent with three sections, two room dividers; brim poles on the front entrance.
Your large full featured family camping tent is ready for your Texas car camping adventure!
Sleeps FIVE or SIX campers with gear. (The bag says 5-8, I think Six max!)

Attention to detail includes side pockets and a gear hanger. Room dividers for privacy.
Floor is good. Fiberglass poles give strength.
Plenty of ventilation; plus a roof coverage rain-fly with overhead windows.
Cold weather? Warm when you need it. All windows seal against rain and cold wind.

Condition: Good: This is a previously owned tent, well maintained! Screens, floor, zippers, rain-fly are all in good condition. I built the tent and found no issues during the build except the clips noted below.

Exception: Many pole clips are broken. Easy fix is to use cheap zip ties instead; then cut them when done. Please see video below.
Exception: I found leakage under the rainfly after overnight rain. Not much, but enough to notice. This rainfly should likely be waterproofed. It's easy! See below for how.

Price compare: $179 at Academy for the Cumberland 10 person with Screen porch
Price compare: $99 for the Academy El Ocho 8 person tent. 14x8

About Rain Protection:
The rainfly should be treated to waterproof it.
I recommend Nikwax Tent and Gear Solarproof. ($15 Amazon)
Use the Nikwax spray because the cheap stuff does not work!. Please see the video
