You don't want any part of your air mattress, blankets, or pillows or anything touching the sides of the walls because it will act as a wick when it rains and once it starts, there's no stopping it.
That thing looks like a church more than a tent. Maybe on Women's Wild Weekend it could be used as a confession hall before the ladies go home.

[QUOTE=memorykeeper;23039236][QUOTE=Dsny4Me;23014946]

Does this tent really have two rooms? It doesn't say it does on the box so I'm just wondering.


It does have a removeable divider but I don't think you'll want to use it. We actually just tossed ours. If you used the divider, the queen air mattress would be right up agains the wall and,like Tent Camping Mom said, you don't want that. Besides, it doesn't make for very good air circulation.

I think it should be PLENTY of room for the three of you.

Thanks, I don't mind if it looks like a church as long as it's a dry church.

It really looks more like a cabin to me but you will find others like that or similar. One thing about staying dry, make sure you seam seal it and we always use some Scotch Guard, Camp Dry, or any spray on fabric protectant. We usually seam seal once a year but really you probably don't need to do it that often, we just tent a lot. But we always use the spray on before every trip.

I bought some sealer at walmart last month ....it basically comes in what looks like a bingo stamper, its filled with liquid latex....and you just dab it along the seams of the tent from the inside.

Yes, totally set it up in a well ventilated area or you may get a little
and run the bingo stamper (yep, that's what it looks like ) along all the seams inside and out. Anywhere you see stitching along the tent.

My DH and I are also tent camping for the first time in May. These forums have been awesome! What dates are you going? We are leaving town 04/29 but making a couple pit stops and won't be to FW till 05/05. If you will be back before we leave I would LOVE to know how your trip went and any tips you might have for another first timer!
HAVE FUN!!!
