No cons at all. Its well made, goes up in about 10 minutes (after you figure it out for the first time), and fits really well.

Meant to post this link, but they appear to be the same item, judging from pics and price, and Amazon lists it as being sold by Sportsmans Guide, so it's logical to assume the one on Sportmans Guide is a Napier.

Got ya, just didn't see it in description, and thought Napiers' were blue and white. Looks fine. Seems there was another on SG that was green and very inexpensive. This one perhaps.

How do you feel about the lack of a sown in floor? Is it waterproof that way?

I was a little confused by that one. I saw it a couple weeks ago, but an exact version isn't on the manufacturers website.

This is the one that I just picked up. Without a floor the way the tent attaches it is waterproof and the room inside is amazing. I got mine from amazon.

like said above...its water proof if there isn't any heavy winds going on. The tent goes all the way around down past the top of the bed, so no water will get in as long as you set it up right. And the rain fly extends down enough so even if it is a bit windy you wont have any problems.

Is there access to the cab and will using it kill your waterproofing?

You can only get access to your cab if you keep your rear slider unlocked or open...You can see in the picture I posted there is a zippered hatch that matches up with the slider almost perfectly.

And w/ the rainfly on it hangs over enough to stop any rain from dripping into the access port or the slider if you keep it open, unless it windy, then the rain my blow in if you open the port.

But under normal circumstances you stay nice and dry and toasty
