Stupid question about groundsheets

If a tent specifies the groundsheet in the living area but says nothing about the bedrooms, does that mean there isnt one? (Khyam Santiago) I know this is probably a stupid question!

The bedrooms are inner tent & ground sheet all as one unit.

I have that tent btw

Thankyou Blueblob!! Are you happy with it? Do you use an additional footprint? Anything we should know about as obvious drawbacks?

Have to say we havn't used it yet! It's having a first outing this weekend. We do have much larger rigidome Khyam and have been very pleased with it. We got the Santiago for weekend trips. We were talking about maybe getting a cook or day tent but will give it a try first adnd see how we go. For weekends we wouldn't be taking too much stuff anyway.

Will await your report then! Have a great time.

It was easy to put up Seems good quality, feels as if it'd stay in place in heavy rain and wind.

Had enough room for the weekend. I did buy it as a tent for a couple of days when the weather is goodish. I think if it was chucking it down then wouldn't be huge amounts of room to cook inside. Well there would be if it wasn't for the kids

If I were going away for longer and couldn't rely on the weather would think about getting a cook or day tent. It is a good touring tent.

My only gripe is it's hard work getting the thing back into the tent bag Tell you the truth we didn't manage it all and left out the inner tents as was in a rush. Will give it a try this weekend, there's probably some knack but often heard people complain about the size of tent bags.

Thank you Blue Bob. I was hoping you'd post! We are only fairweather camping in this one, so it sounds ideal.
