FYI-The way I understand it, Coleman makes two identical versions of these Insta-tents. One version for the big box stores like Target and Walmart that uses a much thinner fabric. The models sold at the higher end Sporting Good Stores and Amazon use Heavy duty 150D fabric. I have felt and seen both and you will definitely notice a difference.
The only problem with putting it on a tarp is that if it rains, then water is held against the bottom of your tent rather than allowing it to drain away. We did it once and had a pool in our tent. Won't do it again.
You're not supposed to leave the tarp exposed...especially on the high side/s. If you have the tarp folded under when using one, then there's no easy way for rain to get in between your tarp and the tent bottom.
We have enough youth...how about a fountain of "smart"?
Went to my Target and was on clearance for $140. Not as good as $99 but still jumped on the deal. Saved an extra 5% with my red card. Thanks OP. I've been looking for a deal on this tent since last year. Repped.
