The best feature of this tent is it's strength. It's very stable in high winds (compared to other tunnel poly tents I've seen nearby) and the aluminium poles are reassuringly strong.
It's not a particularly light tent though, and it does take up a fair bit of room in the 3 bags - although you can get away with using 2 bags if you don't bring the 3rd bedroom.
The tent is very easy to erect for it's size, but it does require 2 persons - 1 to hold the 3 poles, 1 to do the initial pegging out. Once the initial pegging is done on a couple of guy ropes, the poles can more or less fall into place easy enough. Then the tent is re-pegged out properly - there are lots of guy ropes.
Although the tent comes with 3 bedrooms, we have only ever used 2 - one of which is slightly larger than the other. Both bedrooms are big enough to contain a standard double inflatable bed (e.G. Coleman Comfort). In this way it's just about big enough inside for 2 adults and 2 kids. It would be extremely cramped if you wanted to sleep much more than that, as the 3rd bedroom eats into the living space, and also blocks the bedroom doors of the other 2 bedrooms a little. I would say the tent could cope OK though with 2 adults + 3 kids with the 3 sleeping in the bigger bedroom.
Drawbacks - there aren't many, and they are niggles rather than real problems :
The 3 pole system means it can be a difficult / impossible tent to get straight on uneven ground.
If you don't use the 3rd bedroom, there will be a large patch of grass inside the tent just outside the doors of the other 2 bedrooms for which you will have to buy another groundsheet to cover.
Inside the tent there's a fair bit of room, but the 'A' shape of the living area and the slope of the front wall means you'll need to be precise about what chairs and table you use. Hard enough to get 4 chairs to fit in, particularly if they have arms.
All in all, this is a great family tent - strong, comfortable, reasonably big inside, reasonably easy to erect. I'm pleased with our purchase, we've never had cause to regret it.

The Homestead 5 has been re-designed for 2007 incorporating some of the features if the Halo range for even greater versatility. A completely re-styled inner creates a 'home from home' feel and provides excellent space for storing kit.
Easily sleeping 5 in two bedroom, the new Homestead 52 has the capacity to sleep two more in the new living area. Taking it cue from the Halo tents; part of the porch area is now included in the inner tent, so features a sewn-in ground sheet and mesh doors. As well as providing more sleeping space and a cleaner living area, this design also reduces the chances of biting insects entering the tent.
The front porch area is retained as storage and the Homestead 52 keeps the same versatile doorways, allowing easy access from three sides with the ability to turn the front door in to an awning (poles supplied).
Ideal for family camping holidays, it's easy to pitch and carry and it won't take up all the spare space in your garage when it's not in use.
