The tent is symmetrical. This is the view from inside the garage out. The fly has clear plastic portholes so you can see out without letting the weather in. We camp in Death Valley on Thanksgiving. Overnight temperatures are on either side of 20 degrees Fahrenheit. We camp at Burning Man the end of September. Temperatures during the day approach a hundred, but the big problem is wind and dust. Winds exceed 50 miles per hour at least once during every event, sometimes more often. The dust has reduced visibility to four feet during one of the burns. We don't want that dust in our tent, and this looks like it will seal very well.
