Adventure Kings Rooftop Tent review of Performance
Any tent expert will tell you that a canvas tent is better than a plastic one, it helps in keeping water out during rain storms, and it will allow the moisture to get out of the tent which will make it relatively cold in the summer, and not so cold in the winter.
Be sure to open all 4 side if you are summer camping, this will provide a better ventilation and then cover the windows with mesh to protect against mosquitos and the various insects in the area.
but we should not that the zippers of this tent are not strong enough if you are planning to camp a lot with it, and by camping a lot I mean camping way more that what the average person spend.
