Dunno about stakes, but I count two minivans, two bedrooms, and living room/mess hall.

That might be fun to live in for a while.

Wow, and all I have to do is pull 3 latches and push a button. I'll keep the SMB

Over the top! Looks interesting but I'd hate to set it up and move it every night.

Re: How many tent stakes can you count?

Thinking of how many times I've sweated looking for a mostly flat spot to park for the night by the side of a trail, I wouldn't I'd want to set this up anywhere but on a dry lake bed.

Also, why do you need that much indoor space?

This strikes me as a solution in search of a problem. Admittedly, it's a neat solution.

Re: How many tent stakes can you count?

Easy to find a camping spot. Just look for the town football field. Wouldn't that be fun?

Ever been to Colorado City, AZ and seen the houses there? <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colorado_City,_Arizona>

I'm betting this tent is designed along the same lines. I mean how else does a fun-loving polygamist take the family camping?

Reminds me of some of the military tents.

Re: How many tent stakes can you count?

I believe this is a setup comprised of REI "Kingdom" and "Hobitat" tents, with connectors and garages.

We have an REI Hobitat 6 and it's a great base-camp tent when we are tent camping.
