Have not tried it out yet! Cant wait, just waiting for the weather to pick up. Saw it pitched up in the shop, it was so big, it has got 4 bedrooms, you can take 2 down so it makes the living area even more bigger. I paid 430.00, guy in the shop said the price was going to be put up at some point. Give it 10 out of 10 just for the size of it. Will update when I have tried it out.

What a tent, absolutely love it, easy to erect although instructions are not the best, 4 great bedrooms, lots of living space our family of 5 have ample room. Becomes very light / airy when the windows are open. Yes the front door could do with valcro at the bottom and is a bit tight to close, but once done a couple of times becomes a lot easier.

We bought this tent this year when it was on offer at Go Outdoors, what a tent. It's huge! Amazing amount of space inside, really easy to put up in about 40mins. We are 2 adults and 2 children so only use 3 of bedrooms, removing the 4th gives us a huge area at the back of the tent as dressing and storage area.

I'm guessing the design has been updated as ours now seals completely at the front with a zip that goes right around the bottom of the front door making the tent nicely sealed away from the wind.

The tent is big and almost fills the boot, but its worth it. If you like a lot of space when camping then this is the tent for you. We even had enough room inside to set up a projector and screen and turned the front section into home movie theatre!

This is an awesome tent, I can't recommend it enough.

I bought this tent on offer along with the footprint and carpet and cannot rate it highly enough. It is amazing and a lovely home from home and even at the full price it is worth every penny. It is spacious, light and everything worked perfectly. With the new fully sewn in groundsheet and fully zipped in doors we kept our dogs firmly inside with no chance of escape! The 4 double pods are lovely and spacious and the space at the rear is an excellent storage and dressing area.

Sitting in the evening, with the huge windows we could sit inside keeping dogs under control, admire the fields and trees on our comfy hi gear chairs. I am looking forward to my next camping trip in August and just sad I don't have time before then! I think I prefer this tent to my home!

We love this tent - it is HUGE. As a family of six this tent saw us comfortably through two weeks of camping in Devon. Even when it rained we stayed cheerful. The kids got lost in it. The downside is once packed up it is still big and when loaded into my car there is no room for anything/anybody else. Perhaps that is not a downside!

Cheap and fabulous I love it

We picked ours up in the Boxing day sale ay Go Outdoors, we got the footprint and carpet in with the deal, both of which are a good buy.

The tent is huge, so far we have been for a long weekend at the south coast and the weather was great so no idea about the waterproof ability but we love it. 2 adults and 2 small children with plenty of room to spare. The kids wanted to share a room and we used one for all the clothes and had the last one empty. Ours is the 2010 model with the gap at the bottom of the front door but as it's our first sewn in tent it seemed pretty draught proof to us. Easy to put up, I did most myself while wifey kept an eye on the kids, only needing a hand to upright the poles, it took about 50 min to put up, nice and easy. We're planning on a trip to the lakes in a few weeks so we'll see how we get on that time but for now it all looks good.

I bought this tent as an early Christmas present for my son and his family on easter Saturday (2012) as we were going camping at Billing Aquadrome. Their own tent did not have an integral sewn in ground sheet. As they have two very young children we (my wife and me) decided that they needed a draught free environment. The tent is huge, easy to erect. Once it was pegged out it wasa solid structure. During our stay we had a heavy storm overnight and next day there was not one leak, in all truth I did expect the tent to leak due to the strength and duration of the storm. This tent is outstanding, Brilliant value for money, In fact when I need to renew my own tent I will purchase one of these for my own use.

The corado 8 is fantastic,we had problems with the first one with the elastic snapping but took it back to go outdoors they exchanged it for another ,we found the bedrooms to be loser which solved the problem,the space is fantastic, we had really strong winds when we was camping and morning after other campers come over to ask where we bought the tent and said it was the only tent around us that hardly moved,and yes there is a draft at the bottom of our front door which is easy solved with velcro which stops that,over all 10 out of 10 for stability and space,love it,or by the way we waited for the sale at go outdoors and got the tent,carpet and foot print for 400.00 so its worth wait for the sales

What a tent ! we have had many tents but bought this last year and since have converted 3 other families to ditch their tent and buy one.We have used this 4 times now and can pitch it in 30 mins all done.We have 3 children who all have their own bedroom and enough living space for us all. The space at the back of the tent is great for putting cases etc and fitting a wardrobe into.

Next year we are taking it to France for 2 weeks and will be very comfortable in it regardless of the weather as it is sturdy in high winds and rain and has lots of ventilation when hot.

Bought the Corado 8 to replace our Vango Sungari 600, what a great decision that was.Just had what I can honestly say is the wettest week camping I have ever had.The tent is huge which is a godsend when you have a 5 yr old and a 3 yr old who can't play out because of the stair rods. Tent only took 2 of us an hour to put up including the bedrooms and carpets. There where a couple of minor drips from seams but nothing a handy tube of seam sealer couldn't sort out. Some of the previous reviews re the front door being draughty can simply be sorted out by a couple of pegs strategically placed about 6 ins either side of the door. Well done Hi Gear the tent is incredible just a pity its discontinued making it harder to get spares

Manufacturer's Description

The Hi Gear Corado 8 is a large 8 person family tent that offers a great combination of space and practicality.

The door canopy offers the facility to cook inside or out without damaging the groundsheet, and the choice of entrances allows you to choose your layout of tent furniture to suit your camp, and to ventilate the tent fully if it overheats or fills with barbecue smoke.

The internal standing height allows the freedom of movement and the feeling of space.

The 3000m hydrostatic head waterproofing ensures a dry, reliable retreat in troublesome weather while the sewn in ground sheet stops the wet dew in the morning.

To give you and your fellow campers even more space and luxury, it's possible to extend the tent using the Hi Gear Corado 8 canopy.

Ideal for family holidays, the Corado is perfect for getting away from it all.
