    It looks like a great idea, but I have to be honest, as a frequent camper the first thing I noticed with these designs is the lack of airflow through the top, so there’s a possibility of condensation issues. The other thing I noticed is the “frosted” sides (likely plastic of some kind) and thought about light transference. Frosted windows seem to amplify light, so it’ll actually be brighter inside than outside (my tent does the same thing with its white and orange sides). It’s not a bad thing, but don’t think you’ll be sleeping in. :-)
