I am happy to report that this tent has been used since the day I received it. My wife is wandering when I am going back into the house to sleep. Originally, I was leaning towards the outfitter because of the footprint size which would have been perfect for 1 person. I have a family of 3 and the outfitter would have been a bit cramped with cots and a small inflatable mattress. I am glad I went with Vagabond as it is able to fit 2 cots on the sides and the inflatable mattress sideways in between. I also have space for a small table with the heater while able to stand and change. I love the space and does not feel too big with too much profile but not small where we feel claustrophobic. The tent features a door that is offset to the left which is a bit weird but I like it. I am planning on converting the vagabond to a hot tent with a wood stove. The pipe would come out of the front right side which would be a good location. However, I cannot come to terms cutting into the beautiful canvas so for now it remains a warm tent with a small propane heater. The window on the back is very large and would be a nice feature to have in the summer. I would have loved for the option to have an awning. I have looked at images on Google of the vagabond and it seems previous models had the zip on awning. Now I have to figure how to incorporate a tarp shade using the ridge pole. I have the tent setup waiting for those 40+ mph winds is a major reason why I bought the tent. I have had some camping adventures caught in the wind and would not like to go through that again. There were a couple windy nights with gusts up to 25 mph and felt confident.
I love the fact that there's virtually no condensation when using propane heat. There's no leaks in rain, just left the roof moist to the touch but if the cot is pushing against the canvas water does permeate. Setup is easy just a bit time consuming staking it down. I love it and service are nice and very helpful thank you SB.
