Shopping For A New Tent

We have two tents. One 5 person dome ..... EASY to put together, sleeps two on a queen airbed with squeezed in dog. Perfect for my daughter and I on a short trip.

A Colman Weather Master (shown above) that is awesome for longer trips and though it takes longer to install after a week of camping it's worth it. A must have for my 6'3" husband who doesn't want to be sleeping with the dog. Size 17'x9'

Our dog Bravo the Labradoodle
Now I am shopping for an easy up tent with space for three of us and the dog for short trips.

Here is what I found
