This seems like an incredible deal for a family/car camping tent. Current Amazon price is $480 (https://smile.amazon.com/Big-Agnes-Chimney-Creek-mtnGLO/dp/B00M3PRL9S/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1517176... [amazon.com])

Big Agnes is a quality brand. I thought their MtnGlo LED lighting technology seemed sort of gimmicky at first, but I've crawled around inside some of their 2 and 3 person models and it's pretty slick. The first thing I do when I set up my 4 person tent is hang an LED lantern inside it. It never seems like its enough light and is a pain to turn off once you're zipped up tight in your sleeping bag.

Good find, OP.

Seems the fabric for this would be better suited for people trying to save weight. I own a BA Copper Spur UL2. Great tent but I'd go something heavier duty if family car camping is the goal, however for this price and with proper care it's a great deal 👍

What's the point of spending extra on a quality car camping tent? For backpacking it makes sense to shave weight... I'm just not seeing the advantage of this over a $100 tent from Costco.

Reliability in inclement weather is about all I could think of. But that is making a (terrible) assumption that higher price equates to better quality.

I agree, I could see if it was maybe some unbreakable poles, but every tent cheap or expensive that I've owned have had or a chance of breaking or tearing in incremental weather.

I can justify the higher price for an instant tent though... esp for the larger tents they're much more convenient for setup and tear downs.

They are, but they are too heavy to haul around and take up too much trunk space

This. I have a Copper Spur that is awesome but these tents have poor reviews.

Does anyone know if there is an additional accessory vestibule out there that fits this tent? For example the big house by same company has an add on vestibule. I can't find where one is made, but was not sure if it was and its discontinued, or if the big house one would fit maybe. Hoping someone knows, thanks.

Weight is a moot point for a family car camping. You don't want lightweight expensive fabric. You want something sturdy that can withstand abuse of children, which turns out to be cheap as well. Automatically pitching tents are wonderful so that you can pitch the tent in a minute and start grilling steaks while your wife and children enjoy the nature. But something like this, expensive and fragile but somewhat light weighted (but not light enough for you to carry for family backpacking), I don't see a point.

This might not be the best quality, but for the price, it is an excellent deal. YMMV but cheaper tents are probably not as durable and if you have a family, durability is key. If I didn't already just purchase a tent, I'd be all over this.
