New Tent for Cross Country Trip, Copper Canyon 5

We have picked up our new tent for our cross country trip. It is a Copper Canyon 5 by Eureka, basically the same size as the Copper Canyon 4 but with an extra enclosed area. Pretty cool. We set it up in the backyard to get used to putting it up. Next is a trial camping run to get use to doing it for real. We had a very helpful guy at Hilton's Tent City. We ended up putting up two different tents in the store and picked this one.

The tent is easy to put up, has a nice rain fly and large windows for ventilation. This is definitely a car tent, being to heavy to backpack with, but that is fine. It also has two doors and a foot print of 10x16.
