CONS:

  • The rainfly doesn’t cover the entire screened porch area. So, if you leave things in that area, they might get wet.
  • Lack of a zip up window in the back window means it is completely open at all times leaving you zero privacy.
  • Very tricky to fold and place tent back into the carry bag.
