Premium tents: Floor attached or not?

Hi Tim,

1. There is a ground sheet sewn into the rain fly and then
2. there are separate sleeping pods that also have their own floor sewn into them that you then 
3. attach inside the rainfly giving you 2 separate layers of water proof flooring in each sleeping area

Hope that helps!

I am trying to decide between the Icarus Utah and Oberon tents. The description of the Icarus says the the floor of the rain fly is removable, but the blog states that, for premium tents, the rain fly and ground sheet are sewn together. Can you clarify?
