      Comments about Gander Mountain Aurora Family Tent:

      Very happy with this purchase... with two sleeping bags, we had plenty of room left to keep stuff inside. The vestibule the fly creates adds the perfect space for a cooler or extra or of the way storage. We used this in pouring rain and stayed very dry and clean. I do recommend a good footprint or tarp to go underneath.

      Comments about Gander Mountain Aurora Family Tent:

      Very good base camp tent for truck or Jeep camping.
      Used it on canoe trip along James river
      I found it to be a roomy comfortable tent
      It held up even in high winds
      The vestibule is a great feature that allows room for dirty boots, coolers and tools

      The poles are hard to slide in the sleeves without help. This is a great base camp tent for two people. I used it solo and was able to set up a table and chair. Plus hang lights inside. I cooked inside on windy days and that was a plus. Overall a great product for the price

        Best Uses

          Comments about Gander Mountain Aurora Family Tent:

          My usage of this tent: I am a field biologist crew leader. My crew camps for about three months straight every summer in western Colorado. We live in tents full time in rain and wind in a mostly desert setting.

          This tent is very poorly designed.

          First off, it is not waterproof. Not in the least. Neither the tent itself nor the rainfly. This summer, we set up two brand new Auroras (pitched correctly with all guy lines and stakes in) and it rained on us almost immediately. The rainflys leaked straight through and all of that water went straight into the tent. There's not even a hint of rain beading up on the outside.

          The pole design is just silly. There are too many poles for the tent, the poles are too heavy, and they are within those ridiculous sleeves for almost their entire length. This makes it nigh impossible for one person to set it up. Also, good luck keeping the pole sections connected once you get them inside the sleeve. Taking it down is just as irritating for the same reasons.

          Once they're set up, they're ok in dry weather.

          Save your money and buy a 4-person Kelty or Big Agnes.
