After eating moutain house meals with certain others that come down with the "air pooties"  :P , you might want to consider a tent like this that has plenty of ventalation and "air pooties" can be segregated...

Would love to see the rain fly on that thing...

I think using that will subject you to property taxes.

Is the garage in the back?

Shoot, you'd need them to help support that structure with a little positive pressure.

..Or , if you want to go with an air pootie resistant tent, you can always go with one   Like this from Cabelas

In this case, I think a little more ventilation would be a good thing, unless you make the offending members sleep outside.  Your video link didn't work for me, but here's the tent.

I was wondering how it'd hold up at GUMO Pine Springs campground.  :?

The video shows it being subjected to the blast from a jet engine;  winds of app. 75mph.  Probably be OK at Pine Springs except for worst case weather.

Homero, isn't it interesting that the weight of the tent is not mentioned in the video clip?

I suspect that this tent is not going to be reviewed by BackpackingLight anytime soon.

Those are some tents poles in that frame!  I think they are strong enough to even support my weight.

As far as cost goes, I guess if I have to ask, then I can't afford it? :(

I'd advise against eating anything that is likely to produce a good case of air pooties while camping. You can try to contain them, but sooner or later, they will find their way to innocent noses.

Back in college, I did an overnight trip (not to BIBE) with a friend, and we made the mistake of making chili and beans one day for lunch. I woke up at 2am that night (we were sleeping in the same tent) and couldn't breathe. It didn't just stink, the stink chased out all the oxygen. We had to sleep with the tent door open, despite the cold and the rain.

BTW, I think MRE's can produce some hellacious air pooties :D I'd give Mountain House a lower air-pootage factor.

Lima, lentil, soy and pinto,
Navy, northern, and garbanzo,
Kidneys and frijoles negros,
I love beans!

I love beans, woo woo woo!
I love beans, how 'bout you?
High in fiber, low in fat,
Hey, I betcha didn't know that!

When I eat beans,
I sit in my own little cloud,
Nobody comes to visit me,
In my little cloud.

I don't know why, maybe 'cause I'm cuttin' muffins. Because,

I love beans, hey hey hey!
I love beans, every day!
Beans are an excellent source of protein,
I love beans, DINKY-DOO!
