Anyone have any experience with this tent or Coleman tents in general?Thinking of buying for the the family. Like the idea of having separate sleeping areas for the kids and adults.
Its listed price is $500 but can get it for $350 at Kangaroo tent city.

I've had my Coleman for years and never had any problems with it - it's only a one room tent though. I've only ever had to replace one pole which broke due to mistreatment by the kids when packing up, rather than bad workmanship.
It's all fun and games until someone gets hurt - then it's bloody hilarious!

I have a Coleman Dome and never had a problem with it, I think most tents are ok these days even my K mart one lasted years.

We have one of the very tents and they are good. The kids have a single bed each from Aldi with the aluminium frames. We have a double blow up matress (might be a king size - not sure). The "rooms" are a bit sqashy but you get by. I like the flaps they have so you can install power leads without having to go through the door. They also have some kind of "Air circulation" system which is only good if the air is circulating outside.

We have used it once last summer and it got damn hot in there. We have since purchased a large tarp and will have that covering the tens as well.
