This is one of my favorite tents. Its a 30 second setup but in reality it takes about 10 minutes once you zip on the additional room, put on the rain fly, and stake it out completely. Good for two cots. but if your sleeping on the floor you can put three inside and maybe one more in the vestibule.

I'll put up pictures of my rig this weekend.

I checked out the setup procedure. It looks pretty nice and easy. Have you had it out in any heavy weather yet?

I've been looking at these for months! Pretty close to pulling the trigger. (Probably)

They have a sweet deal on it on Amazon. It includes the Complete panel system which is the enclosure for the porch.

So the tent is currently sold out. What is the typical price? Not that I need more tents but looking for something in smaller footprint but enough room to stand.

If you want a tent big enough for you to stand up, I think Ringling Brothers is having an auction. A lot of tents are sold out since the government gave everyone tent and bicycle money. Canvas Camp US makes a really sweet set of tents. They have tall peaks too.

Yeah I understand that a small super tall is an engineering feat not to be taken lightly.

I have an ALPS tent branded / sold as "Browning" called the BigHorn. It is an extremely tall two room 10' x15' tent could probably house a circus, but it weighs 35 lbs and takes over a campsite. They make a single room version at 21lbs that I might get if prices ever normalize. Problem is that I cramp in the winter, and Scouts BSA has rules against leaders hopping around the campsite in their skivvies, cussing, and trying to beat a cramp out of their hamstring.
