We purchased the 83000 model for our Element and immediately put it up for a trial run. That took 45 minutes for the complete setup using the guide book, but it is pretty self explanatory and next time will be less then 15 minutes without the guide. It goes up pretty easily, even on a breezy day. It is large (almost seems to dwarf the Honda Element) and if there were strong winds that might present a problem. The 2 tent poles seem sturdy and the attachment to the car secure. The access to the car from the tent is great. The tent is HUGE and having the attached screened room will be nice for protecting us and equipment. It is large enough one could bring a smaller picnic table inside it. The floor seems durable so no footprint required for the tent. We will take the advice of others and put seam sealant on the seams. That appears to be a weak spot. There is only one size rain cover which seems small but hopefully adequate. We won't know that until it rains. Prior to this we used a carport which had rain issues along with various size tents, but this looks like a great blend.
