|The UKCampsite.co.uk was asked to take a look at the Sunncamp
Antigua 8 SE - 10 berth family tent. The Antigua has two seperate sleeping compartments, 2 x
5 berths or you can split those down further to make 4 bedroom compartments with a large living area and porch area. The
Antigua 8 SE is exclusive to PJCamping.co.uk. The RRP is £399.99, but it's on special offer right now for just £269.00!
The Sunncamp range of tents come with an impressive list of modern features
built in to every tent they make and the Antigua is no exception. The tent is
well made, versatile and extremely capable of withstanding the abuse that the
British weather can throw at it!
The Antigua comes with unique X-FLEX Fibreglass poles that not only come
with a 5-year warranty, the SunnCamp X-Flex shatterproof pole system provides
all the advantages of a fibreglass pole but with the strength of steel. When
fibreglass poles break they can splinter creating potentially thousands of
dangerously sharp shards which can not only hurt you but also damage your
tent, whereas the X-Flex poles have a strong polyprop sheath that, in the
event of a pole breaking, do not allow any splinters to touch the tent or you.
On the Antigua all the flysheet seams are hot-air taped during the
manufacturing process making them more weather resistant and sustainable to
the abuse of the elements.
The Antigua comes complete with the latest heat reflective groundsheet. The
upper side is aluminium coated and this essentially reflects back some of the
heat that is normally lost through to the ground. The inner tent groundsheets
are sewn in "bath tub" style for maximum protection against wet ground. They
are also breathable, for your added comfort and have ventilation areas that
are protected by mosquito mesh screens. The inner tents also come complete
with an internal storage pocket so you should never misplace your mobile
telephone or car keys whilst in bed again!
The inner tents have a secondary mesh door that is on the outside of the
normal door enabling this inner tent door to be opened, for ventilation,
whilst keeping out troublesome insects.
The Antigua is well ventialted which is essential for camping during the
height of summer and helps to keep the air circulting and helps prevent
condensation, the tent benefits from great circulation and ventilation due to
the variety of different vents located all around the tent, the main benefit
of this is if you are in the rain you can close any vents that the rain may
get through and keep open the ones in the shelter.
