    Default Cabelas Guide Model Tent...6 man or 8 man?

    I'm asking because the 8 man is on sale with the cabelas 50th anniversary sale plus free shipping. Is there any reason NOT to go with the 8 man? I know its 5" higher at the peak, weighs 4 pounds more, and is 2" larger in one dimension when packed. I would get the 6 man, but the 6 man isn't on sale right now in the aluminum pole version....

    Thoughts?

    Default 8 person

    Both are heavy and having slept and stayed in both I would recommend the 8 man. The extra space makes a very roomy tent. Setting it up in much wind at all by yourself if difficult at best but if you can make some wind block it is a bit easier.

    I have an 8 man and we love it. I would say, if weight is not an issue to get it where you will need to use it, then it should be a no brainer IMO. The 8 man for 3-4 people is a portable Palace.
