    • This is what I use.  I can get two cots down each side and plenty of room the middle for stuff.  Plus, I can stand straight up and get dressed.  Usually I just use it for me.  Have to have a Hiker Direct account for the price in the photo, but they sell good stuff, so its worth it. https://alpsmountaineering.com/camp-creek-4-person.html
    • I've used it once in the rain and another time in some light snow, and I didn't experience much of an issue beyond the usual when entering/exiting. I generally give my tents a spritz of waterproofing before I use them for the first time and each spring (heat bakes the waterproofing right out, and I figure these things have been in hot cargo containers or trucks before they end up in my possession). 
    • Oh yeah 🤦🏼‍♀️ I was thinking about both family trips and scout trips, but forgot that we can't share a tent at scouting events after a few years. In that case it definitely doesn't make sense to buy a big tent because the hordes of squirrelly cub scouts visiting use case expires pretty soon.
    • Remember that when your Scout finishes Cubs you will be camping separate from them (because of the risk you present, according to the G2SS), so as pointed out, do you need it in a couple of years? I have a huge dogtrot that I still get out once in a while, but I tend to nestle in my two-man (i.e., one-man plus my stuff) on most camping trips with Scouts BSA.
    • That looks pretty luxurious!  I saw a review complaining about water leaking in during rain and the vestibule being unusable in rain - has that been your experience also? Even if so, it's so big on the inside that might be ok.
