The Wawona is the first tent to seriously challenge the REI Kingdom 6. The Kingdom 6 scores a little higher for comfort, but the Wawona has some clear advantages. The Wawona is much faster to set up, especially with one person. It doesn't require managing a separate fly. It's better in windy conditions. But most of all, the Wawona is a better value. The Kingdom 6 is only $40 more expensive; however, if you want a big vestibule like the Wawona, that costs you an extra $100 for the "Kingdom Garage" and then another $70 for poles to hold up the garage awning. So for comparative setups, the Wawona is $130-200 less expensive. We still think the Kingdom 6 is the best if you want ultimate comfort. However, if you want a faster set up time and a built-in vestibule, get the Wawona and save some money.
The Wawona 4 is a good option if you don't need a tent quite as big as the Wawona 6.
