You might as well bring the Satellite TV and DVR to that sight. Who has power and potable water, heck there is probably showers behind the picture taker. Who does that? LOL

Should have just brought the RV along.

No you didn't see a mini fridge cause its inside the tent.
Yes we have a heat and air pump for the big house. Didn't need it this trip. Highs in low 80s and lows in low 60s. Great temps.
I do have a storage tub set up with 2 group 31 agm batteries and a 1000w inverter for off grid camping just to keep phones charged and such.

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
How many Rangers does it take to haul all that?

That's a good looking tent in the background. Does it have a separate screened room?

I think I'm over due for a new tent.

Yes sir. The whole thing is 12x18. 12x12 living area and 12x6 screen porch. It's no instant tent. About 20 min set up but the room inside makes it worth while. At least that's my opinion.

What brand/model is it?

I would like a bigger tent but one easier to set up would be nice too.

It's a Magellan Lakewood Lodge tent. Not too bad to set up. It's no instant tent. But fits a family of 4vreally comfortable with 4 cots.
