Tent Dilema

Trying to decide between one of these two tents. I have a Golite and I have a Marmot. They’re a 1 person and 3 person respectively and both are really great tents! I would like to have a huge base-camp tent, though. Here’s two I found on Campmor that look really promising/awesome. I’m strung between them however…which would you recommend?

Eureka Copper Canyon 1610

  • Sleeps 6
  • Main fly and floor seams are factory taped for weather protection
  • Freestanding design is easy to set up
  • Bathtub floor keeps seams taut and high off the ground for superior protection

  • Screen Room does not have a floor, but it has a perimeter sod cloth to keep bugs away
