Gonna have to disagree on the “semi-freestanding” thing. That implies that the tent has to have something other than the frame to keep it up. “Semi-freestanding” implies that the tent needs stakes and/or guy wires to hold it up. I stake my tent when I set it up but I stake every tent I’ve ever owned...even old Eureka Timberlines...because I’d rather not chase a tent during a wind.

That said, I can and have picked up the tent and moved it around after it is set up. Every morning, I pick up the tent by the frame and shake out any dirt and debris before I pack it. The tent needs nothing else to keep it erect.
