I work in the film industry and we use these types of tents everyday. We often have to move these tents more than 3 or four times a day, on and off trucks and trunks, which can get laborious over a period of time. The alumi-max is easy to use and light-weight. You don't have to sacrifice stability for less weight. The alumni-max is plenty strong and easy to maneuver in place with the wide legs. This tent is by far becoming one of my favorites.
