The center section is the largest of the three, with a center height of 6 feet. Each of the two outer "rooms" have a height of 55 inches (4 feet 7 inches).

  • Included rainfly protects the doors and windows from wet weather.
  • Shock-corded poles allow for an easy and quick setup.

This spacious tent has a footprint of 14 feet x 14 feet, divided over three sections that are connected. Again, you can choose to have the whole thing as one large tent, or hang up the dividers for a little added privacy and share with your kids, friends, or other family members. The two smaller sections are perfect for gear storage as well.

Staying Dry in Wet Weather

  • The floor is tub-style and waterproof.
  • The tent walls are made of a fabric that is weather-resistant.
