What is the best family (6-8) person tent out there? (aka: a solicitation for help from BI)
we have a 4-person LLBean tent. we absolutely love it. we've had it since 99 and can't say enough about how easy it is to set up, its durability, and the waterproofing.
however, we now have 2 kids and will be working on a third shortly and need a bigger tent. we also got a nice queen-size air matress that takes up a considerable amount of room and don't want to feel squished inside the tent.
we are interested in the 8-person ll bean tent. however, we would like to explore other options before buying it.
the ll bean tent
any ideas? it HAS to be fully waterproof, durable, and very high-quality. there's scarcely anything worse that sitting in a ****ty-leaking tent wishing you had spent a mere $100 more to be comfortable and dry.
