Sorry, I'm afraid that I don't have any photos of the new tents. However, compared to the old tents, these are the main differences that I recall:

- Enter and leave the tent through proper screened door, instead of zippered tent flap.

- The shower is still outside, but the access is through a sliding screen door, again instead of zippered tent flap.

- The sides of the tent are screen material, rather than canvas with screen windows held in place with velcro. For privacy, there's a floor-to-ceiling curtain that can be pulled into place. (As an aside, this curtain is the only part of the new tent that seemed really cheap and not well-thought out, to me.) One overall effect is that the tents have much more light during the daytime.

- Electric power is available in the tent 24x7 via 2 outlets at the front of the tent. This is an enormous plus compared to the old system, as you no longer have to haul batteries back and forth to the main tent to be recharged.

Jeff in Chicago,

Are the tents really all that important?
