This is our weekender (in the hopes we take less equipment). Its a great tent, we have just had a couple of days in the new forest followed by a couple of days in Dorset. It was wet and muddy but the tent withstood it all. I was worried that we might not have enough space as our regular tent is a gelert Utah 4+4 but no problems at all in fact it was great to get back to what camping should be about ie; not taking everything and the kitchen sink. Don't get me wrong the Arizona isn't a small tent, there's plenty of space for chairs if its wet and the bedrooms roomy enough for clothes storage at the end of the bed (this is based on 2 people sharing the tent). One of the best things about it though and the reason we actually bought it is the head height. We wanted a weekend tent we could stand up in that felt light and airy and this fulfils that criteria easily.

We are very happy campers!

Agree with all the positives already mentioned. It's quick to put up, looks great and doesn't look stupidly big like a circus tent some people take away with them nowadays due to a compact footprint. Best to pitch on flat ground, had water running into the porch area during a downpour on a slope but that's a lesson learned. 3 adults would be a squeeze but 2 adults and a small child would be fine. If you want to do 2 and 3 day breaks and save time putting up and taking down a tent that also gives good space and comfort you cannot go wrong with the Arizona L.

I bought the tent in March 2010 and used it since for a camping weekend. Unfortunately we had good weather conditions so there won’t be experience with bad weather. We had about 35 km/h wind while erecting the tent and the first day. It was stable with the bracing cords. We got the apparent newer version of the Arizona L with sewed on floor canvas. Fully recommendable for two persons on one weekend :-)

We bought this tent after reading loads of reviews, we wanted a smaller tent than our Suncamp Prism, so that my husband and I can go away without the kids. We have not been disappointed! It is easy to pitch and take down, has loads of room in the living area.Very good for a couple ( and our dog!). The sleeping area is spacious enough for the 2 of us, and we have even considered taking the kids for an overnight stay in it.

I will use this tent a great deal especially for longer breaks and holidays without the kids. We will have to use our Prism for longer hols with the kids. There is plenty of headroom, the 2 doors were excellent during this past very hot weekend. The ventilation was very good, although there was a little condensation, probably due to the cool nights compared to the scorching days! We didn't have any rain so I can't comment on that, although I really have no doubts about the standard of waterproofing due to the earlier reviews. The only niggle I have, and it is very tiny, there is no mesh to keep out the bugs,but I suppose you can't avoid them all when you're camping anyway!

I really can't wait to get this tent out again.Going to plan our next adventure now!

The best thing about this tent is the overall height and space for such a small tent - it makes life so much easier when you can stand up inside when changing, etc. The sleeping area is for 3, we managed comfortably 2 adults, a child and a very large bag. The porch area is fantastic too, we had plenty of room to sit in it, even with our dog cage. I was also impressed at how easy it is to erect. We have had ours for a number of years, but because of caravanning haven't used it. Had no problem erecting it within minutes even without instruction, as the places for the poles are clearly indicated on the tent and colour coordinated to indicate which pole goes where. We have a number of tents that we have collected and used over the years (before we started caravanning), and I can state that this is the best.

We have had this tent for the summer and have used it 8 times so far.

It is large enough for two of us to camp for a week , the porch is fantastic as we can comfortably sit in it in bad weather / late evening in chairs and still have room to have a table and move about.

It does really need two people to put it up ,however it is quick and easy, only taking a few mins to put up and take down.

The thing that also makes this tent good is its height, no bending needed when moving about.

I would highly recommend it.

This is a fantastic weekender tent. We own an Outwell vermont L which is a really good tent but it's massive and really not worth pitching for less than 2 days. I looked around for ages for a tent big enough that we can stand in but one I can pitch by myself so I can go away with just me and my lad. I am really glad I choose this one as I can do it myself and all I need is the little one to climb inside and lift up the middle which he loves doing and then it's job done. Even though it's a three person tent (sleeping area) the is plenty more room, so it's normally me the wife and the two boys and there is still room for our bags. Last night it rained and we were bone dry. I understand the comments about the door and water but if you are sensible it's not an issue / no different than any other tent. These tents are discontinued now so you can get a really good old stock bargain.

I owned one of these after getting it really cheap (£80) some years ago. Needed a small tent with head room as my mum used it when we went camping, and we also used it as a weekend tent. Did not have a sewn in ground sheet as the newer model had, but it was a lovely tent and did us proud!

They did return the model later as an anniversary, and was torn over whether to buy it but at nearly £200 could not afford it.

Love this tent! We have a larger Outwell but wanted something quick to put up for a couple of nights but big enough to accommodate us - 2 adults and 2 dogs. First time out the weather was awful - however the tent stood up well to the torrential rain and the gusty winds. We have now added a tarp to give us some outside shelter from the elements. Its a great tent for a few nights away, quick and easy to put up and down and small enough to chuck in the car and be on your way! Highly recommended.

The best features are the J door (side door), the zips, which are very robust and work a treat, and of course the head room. I can't fathom the previous complaint re the doors.All tent doors slope. There's a basic camping trick to clear rainwater/dew off a tent door and the area above it. The only flaw I found was the bedroom area could do with a bit more pegging as it whips up a bit in strong winds. However as I always pack too much this problem was eased by storing stuff down the side between the inner and outer.
