Summary:
Actually I am a motorcycle (BMW) camper. Have used the 7x7 Sundome for years with no problems, well made but also cheap, a great value. Many features like hanging pockets, screens, easy to set up.

Customer Service:
no need.

Summary:
I used this tent for a 9-day bike ride around Victoria (Australia) during spring and it held up very well against wind and rain just about every day. I was surprised by its durability when it stood through two reasonably violent thunderstorms, too. My partner and I stayed dry throughout the entire trip. This tent fits a double mat with enough space for gear plus the head-space was useful during pack up and pack down. I’d definitely recommend it to anyone car camping.

CONS: This tent can use sturdier pegs. One of my guylines also tore towards the end of the trip. I had issues with moisture forming in the inside of the tent but other than that, no water seeped through from the outside. The mesh on the door started to tear towards the seventh day and that let in small animals. Though it's a 3-man tent, it is more comfortably used by two.

Summary:
I heave recently used the Coleman Sundome 10x10 tent on a week long capming trip. It rained like crazy. All the other people in my party had tents that poured water in. They ended up having to put canopys over theirs or either tarps. Mine was completly dry. It rained for 3 days straight. Two of the 3 days were HARD rain. When I took the tent down, there was a puddle of water under it. Cant believe it didnt come in. I did use the spray to spray the rain fly and tent. I did not use the seam sealer but I applied it once I got back home. Would purchase another one. I hope this tent holds up for years to come

Summary:
I purchased the 7 X 7 model for an overnight "backyard" camp out. I was able to fit a king-size air mattress inside. It covered the entire floor, but that was fine since we were just using it for sleeping. We were expecting rain that night, so we needed something to keep us dry. It rained very hard that night, and the tent leaked like crazy! Water was literally dripping from the ceiling, coming through the fabric at the seams! Totally worthless! There was about a 6-inch tear in a seam when we put it up the very first time, and I also noticed an arrow sticker like is used to point out flaws on clothing, etc., marking what looked to be a slight flaw in the fabric of the rainfly. This tent is going back to the store! If we had been on a "real" camp out and had not been able to go indoors, we would have had to spend the night in the car or gotten soaked! Other reviewers said the tent protected well in rain. Not sure why mine was such a disappointment, but it sure didn't keep the rain out.
