I had the same decision to make three years ago. I decided to go with the canvas wall tent. My Grandpa talked me into it because he has been using the same tent for 20 years. I can't see the cabelas tent lasting that long(could be wrong). He started with a smaller tent and as his hunting party grew he had another 6ft section put in with out any problem. I also like the ability of being able to use trees for the the ridge pole. saves packing all the heavy poles if weight/space is an issue.
