So this is an instant setup tent as you would expect, this is why it is in the list here, and it is also a cabin type. It is easy to use as expected from such a design.
But the tent is interesting also because of its full coverage fly so you have a complete rain protection. Cabin type tents with such a fly are not so frequent on the market, though you have a few here in the list.

5. Coleman 6 Person Instant Tent
This is probably the best known and the most popular instant tent on the market. It has been around for years and you have thousands of reports about it.
More typical cabin style tent is hard to imagine. Note that this is a tent with an integrated fly. So this is a single-layer type with a waterproof roof, but if you want extra protection they sell a fly separately.

With these great windows and a mesh ceiling, the tent offers lots of ventilation. But they have also added a floor vent. The most interesting detail is that overhanging fly that is supported with extended eaves, so it partly protects the door and the windows.

De estas 7 carpas cual me recomiendas por calidad y facilidad de uso? Mi ideaa es colocar dos colchones queen par mi esposa y dos hijas. gracias y saludos desde Venezuela.
The answer is not so simple. The easiest to use are those that have no extra fly but adding the fly is not complicated in any case. I am sure you will be fine with any of them. But more space will give you those that are higher on the list. If you insist on one particular, then go for the Core tent.
La respuesta no es tan simple. Los más fáciles de usar son los que no tienen mosca extra pero añadir la mosca no es complicado en ningún caso. Estoy seguro de que te irá bien con cualquiera de ellos. Pero más espacio le dará a los que están más arriba en la lista. Si insiste en uno en particular, vaya a la tienda Core.
