    we have 2 room coleman dome job...hasnt had a lot of use as we bought camper..... plenty enough room for smaller family and fits queen airbed with ease in main room...2nd room classed as vestible but is really just another room....we have had this up in some serious wind....eg had poles bending down and smacking me on arse in bed...IF you peg them out correctly and do same with guy ropes they stand up to it rather well unlike the earlier models.
    have look on net and if interested let us know...its just sitting in storage gathering dust...

    I have a Cabellas Big Horn III with a brand new stove for sale. Its a huge tent but you can put it up by yourself.
    Over 2k to land it here in NZ but selling under half price. You can get a vestibule or awning for them.

    We have a zempire invert 8 tent. Used four maybe five times. It has three rooms which all can fit a double blow up mattress, got a small awning thingy and a groundsheet. Google for pics and more info.

    JD300..those are great...I used to put a huge warehouse tarp right over top and down to ground,bungy cord the rings down to pegs....double insulation,less noise from rain....keeps the willow grub poohs off the canvas....and during summer makes tent cooler and most importantly darker when trying to get kiddies to sleep.
