Best ground tent under $500 for 2 kids and 2 adults

Ive been using this Cabela's Alaskan Guide 4man tent for 3 or 4 years now. The 6 man is about $450. Full rainfly, roomy, fairly tall for it's size.
Found a raving review/YouTube video of a couple of guys on a hunting trip in Alaska getting dumped on in high winds sold me on it. I've had it up in some pretty strong Midwestern storms with 50mph gusts and it's held up phenomenally. We do scotch guard the rain fly every year just in case.

A little more than 500 but I have this tent and it is well built but heavy, has spring steel poles and supposed to withstand extreme winds.
