Rare opportunity here... 
This 4 four season tent is in NEW condition, was never used. !  My family purchased it around 1983...84ish,.. cost over $500 back then for all the parts. We had planned to use it on some serious snow trips...but things changed and it was never taken out.  It has been in storage in the garage, not wet, or in the sun...since we bought it. Condition is NEW.  There is no vintage old smell  on it lots of older tents get.  This one smells normal and issues with odor. It is a BLACK ICE, Meridian 2 II model. (Black ICE was founded by Bill Simon...who later went on to form THE NORTH FACE company. Made to take 2 persons with their gear inside...or can do 4-5 bodies, with no gear if needed.  Intended for the biggest , toughest mountains on the planet. I have 10 - 20 additional pictures that I have of when I set up the tent ...please let me know if youd would like to see any of them, or any particular detail of the tent.The basic idea of this tent that it is modular...there is an outer GEODESIC  fly w poles bottom,.. does have snow flaps.  and then from the inside of the fly, you clip on a separate  interior modular 2 person chamber...that is fully enclosed, with bottom, and 2 doors zippered. There are many different clips from the fly ceiling, and so you can orient your inner chamber with different configurations as needed. The hanging module is rectangular, so it leaves 2 areas on either side to place your gear, protected from the elements. There is also included an add-on  zippered VESTIBULE door area. This creates an area to get clean in, and also more room to store gear. Nice that once you set it up with the poles just pick it up and move it around the site as needed. 
Other features are the rear circular (draw string cinch closure) door , and  smaller protruding round openings for air flow. Comes with all its bags...3 main poles, 1 curved vestibule pole, and about 17 smaller stakes. Measures about 7 feet wide...not including the vestibule, and 5 feet from each pole tip to pole tip (6 corner tips.)If you are not familiar with this a google IMAGES search for " black ice tent meridian " on the image of the blue and yellow tent...and it will give you a host of information related to this exact tent...all the specs and info available. Any questions...just ask. And since you bothered to read all of this...I will throw in FREE SHIPPING !
