Rain leaks in round the door
We were really pleased with the tent when we first put it up. Straight forward to erect, really spacious inside, good insect protection, nice high roof... Then we went away for our first weekend and it was a weekend of steady rain-not particularly heavy rain, just steady. Unfortunately the tent doors leaked. It doesn't seem that the tent we have is a faulty one, more that there is a fundamental flaw in the design. Because of the line the door zips follow, rain is able to get beneath the protecting flaps in the lower half of the door and seep through the zips into the tent. Fortunately it doesn't come into the sleeping areas, but still it's very disappointing in a tent that we expected to be of high quality, that it can't keep the weather out.
Maybe the editor of 2009 Camping Life never tried the tent in the rain before giving it the Editor's Choice award.

When it says the "carport and car tarp attachments included" does it mean that the tarps themselves are also included, or just the attachments for the tarps, which in turn need to be purchased?
Is there any photo showing the carport in action?
Many thanks. ..
Just the attachments. The tarp and/or carport can be purchased seperately.

Is this free standing? I know it will be more stable when staked down, but will it stand up without stakes?
Yes, it is freestanding. It says so in the product description at the corner of the page.

What are the dimensions of the two sleeping areas? I cannot find a floor layout anywhere on the web.
Airy 8-ft. x 9-ft. main vestibule area with a 7-1/2" height is perfect for use as a common area, for staging equipment or storing bikes. 6-ft. x 7-1/2-ft. sleeping compartments, one on each side of the common area sleeps three people each. From Cabela's.com
Great BIG Tent
This tent is perfect for the family camping adventure or base camp for a 24 hour mountain bike race. We can put the pack and play on one side of the tent and still have a ton of space for the rest of the family. When you want a SUPER base camp tent, add Kelty's Carport or Car Tarp to the vestibule and have a ton of living space with room for the kitchen, camp chairs and a table or park your bikes inside at night. This is a DELUXE car camping tent. It's no wonder that it won a 2009 Camping Life Editor's Choice Award!
