I believe ours is a 7person Ozark Trails tent...nothing overly fancy or expensive. Its light weight, does ok in light rain..the dew in the mornings we've found seeps thru and we'll get those indoor drips that wake us up nice and eliminate this, we usually string up a large tarp, tree to tree at an angle for rain run-off

Wondering if there is something i could partially soak the tent in. Maybe a water seal of some kind..the bottom half seems to get wet no matter what from the humidity/dew

I will say when they say 7 persons, they actually mean 5 persons, or 7 person @ 4'-5" tall, sardine style
