Is tent depicted in Ben Holbrook's photo the Mountain Manor 8? I ask because this photo does not match the photo on The North Face's website.

I think that's cause he hasn't staked out the ends for the side rooms. It's been a while but it seems to me that's how you hold those open and stretch them out. So yeah I think that is the 8.

I work at The North Face HQ, and do quite a lot of camping with my family of 5. I have checked out several of our tents from the Gear Room - but my go-to for car camping with the family is definitely the Mountain Manor 8. The materials are first rate (but heavy - this is not a backcountry tent). The tent is easy to put up for it's size - the tent poles are high quality and strong. And the tent has plenty of room for 5 cots and all of our gear. Not to mention that I would not be the least bit worried passing time in a heavy downpour - as long as the tent is set up properly. This tent is a lifetime purchase. I think it is discontinued for now - that's a shame.
