My sister has asked me with finding a cheap car camping tent that can weather "Texas Turdfloater" storms. Apparently the only requirements are 4-person tent, weatherproof, and come in around $150. Brand and weight are not an issue. I told her I wasn't aware of such and told her if she were willing to double her budget I could get her into a really good tent.

Anyone have some suggestions?

You gave her good advice. There is no such thing as cheap and water proof in a tent.

Remind her that tent sizing generally is only accurate if you REALLY like your tent mates, OR several of the campers are kids. :)

Thanks guys, this 4 person tent is for 2 plus stuff. Knowing how she packs for our forced family fun in the summer there is more than a fully stocked pickup for a weekend camp out.
