" ...  After literally ONE week of use the main zipper to the door is getting stuck and skipping so badly that I cannot use it.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Upon 1st setup, we discovered that the mosquito netting on one of the doors was ripped rendering that door unusable. ... The door does not allow entry by only unzipping wide enough to enter. ... The bottom of the doors are not covered by the miniscule rainfly overhangs, so water pours in when it is raining and the doors are opened.  ...  "

" ...  The twin size air mattress we were trying to use stuck out of the tent door, making it impossible to even zip it closed.  ...  "
comment
" ...  On the first day the zippers on both doors split. ... The first one I was able to get back together, but couldn’t use that door because I didn’t know if I could get it back again. ... So both doors have two zippers, one along the bottom and one on top that curves down, both of the zippers on top split.  ...  "
