Color-coded webbing and poles makes for an easy set up.
A great large tent. It's spacious and perfect for a huge family. Kept me dry all night after using it at the camping event I attended.
It's big in size. It might be difficult if you put it up in a small space. You need to be careful because the poles might hurt other people around the area where you will be placing it
The Big House 6 Deluxe Gold has two windows and two doors and a maximum center height of 6' 6 which is a tiny bit more than the average height of the 106 various 6 person tents we have looked at. With 75 square feet of room inside, it is significantly smaller than some other 6-person tents, and it would be quite cramped for you and, up to five other campers all through the 3-seasons this tent is recommended for. Smaller tents like this one can make a very good choice for people who like spending heaps of time outside the tent exploring.
One of the good things about cabin tents is, that the sides of the tent are near vertical creating a generous interior, this makes for a lot more headroom at the sides of the tent, making it feel much larger than other types of tents, most of the time, they tend to have large floor areas, so they are great for larger groups. In general cabin tents most often used by groups going on a camping trip in a car or a truck as they are quite heavy when compared to dome tents. That dose though make them well suited to colder nights.
