My husband is concerned about windows/ventilation since we do a lot of camping in hot/sunny weather. It is hard to tell from the pictures, but I do see folks reporting "good ventilation". How many windows does this tent have do they zip open/closed and is there a skylight?
Thanks

There are two upper windows (annoying - I'd like them to be bigger) on the main doors, two small windows close to the floor, and a large mesh on the ceiling as skylight. The ventilation is fine with or without fly, but if it's really hot, I can't imagine you'd really want the fly on. While it may breathe alright it sill won't feel good to feel all blocked in on a hot night. But it's nice in that other brands these days have too much mesh all over the tent without the fly which takes away too much privacy. This tent offers more privacy than most I think, in that regard. All of the windows (too high or too low - haha) open for air/light or close for complete privacy. I don't have many pics but did find this one from looking up one morning last summer or Fall. Hope it helps. Oh and while you can see through the walls a little, you wouldn't really be able to make anything out. Not as much privacy as some would like but it's not as bad as the picture makes it seem.
