My 12 year old saw the box and put it together this morning by himself. It could’ve gone faster if he used the directions and pushed things tightly together, haha, so lesson learned, don’t forget to fasten things securely. After he fixed the poles that slipped out, it came together nicely and is sturdy and quiet. I love the ease and convenience of the velcro nightstand bag and the height is just right for kids to get on and off with no issues. Each bag of parts is quite heavy, so no taking this on backpacking trips, these will be an absolutely valuable space saver in our family tent!! Now we just need to go camping!
