I bought mine second hand from the former owner this year and paid 300 for the tent, carpet, 2 double airbeds and a single airbed. Over in Ireland the RRP is 345 with the cheapest both north and south been 299. Most cheaper websites will not deliver to Ireland like we are on the far side of the moon instead of over the water a bit!

I have to say that it has been the best money I've spent. This tent is huge the living space is the best. We are a family of 4 with 2 young kids in the mix but there is plenty of space in this for us all, plus on our last camping trip it rained a little so 3 more people(my brother in law, wife and little fella where also in there all happy and each doing their own things and all bone dry). I am going to buy the extension next season just to keep the carpet dry at the door with people walking in and out with wet boot/shoes and for a potty at night for the little ones. I've owned about 4 tents in my life but this is by far the best one! As my brother in law put it you could hold a barn dance in here if you needed to! All in all a BIG thumbs from me and my family!

This is my second tent and it is excellent. It withstood on its first outing, a storm of high winds and approx 30mm of rainfall over a 2 night camping trip. We had no leaks and no problems with the wind howling around us.

It was easy to put up, approx 20mins and easy to take down. We had plenty of room, 2 adults, 2 kids, and the children enjoyed helping to put it up also.

Although it had its first christening in terrible conditions we did find that one of the doors was a little tough to close but we got the knack of it eventually. However when the sun finally showed up, the door was fine.

I recommend this tent as I expect it to last a good few years, hopefully though in better weather conditions.

Fantastic tent . Only spent two nights in it so far but its a breeze to pitch . Stayed dry through overnight rain and once home and hung out it dried rapidly .

The two main pods are a great size although the smaller end pod is a bit closed in . We had two adults and four kids inside plus bits n bobs and it wasnt cramped . For adults only you could nicely sleep five but six would be pushing it with the small end pod . At night with the vents closed its nice and warm and easily lit with a single light .

Next purchase will be the extension so the cooking gear can live out there with the soggy shoes and socks :D

This is our first tent, we purchased it last year and have used it twice. The first time we went camping was back in June 2012, when we had the heavy rain and gale winds (Not great for a first camping trip!) but the tent stood up the beating it took that night. Its easy to put up, it took us novices about 30-40 mins, so with the more experienced camper it would probably take less.

When we go camping, its 2 adults and 2 children and a dog, we use the large internal pod to sleep in and the smaller one to keep all our bits in like, food, clothes etc. Great inside space, we are going to purchase an extension this year to house the cooking equipment and muddy shoes!

Just back from my first trip in this tent and it couldnt have gone any better. It pitched in about 20 minutes with two adults working on it. Was warm and dry but plenty of vents to let the heat out if you didnt want it too warm. Reall easy to take down as well and its not a nightmare to get it back in the bag after. I don't think the third bedroom is big enough for two adults, 2 kids maybe sharing a single mattress. We have the extension as well but didnt use it this time as we were only going with 1 child for 2 nights so didnt need the extra space. For pitching I'd recommend putting in the four poles and then pitching and pinning the centre ones before using the guy ropes to raise the two outside ones. Several people came over asking about the tent over the weekend and I personally though it looked a lot more solid than some of the other tents pitched beside us. I think we'll get many years of happy camping with this tent. We're thrilled with it.

What a fantastic tent! We were new to camping this year, so wanted an easy to erect and comfortable tent. This tent is extremely spacious with a fully sewn in groundsheet, so no bugs or creepy crawlies, it is totally idiot proof and easy to erect. There are tension bands all around to tighten up and secure the tent and all the doors and windows are fully netted. The poles are colour coded and the tent has matching colours to show you where to thread them,there are lots of storage pockets in the main living area and some in the bedrooms too, and AMAZINGLY the whole thing folds away (with the bedrooms still inside) into a spacious carry bag. Brilliant. The second time we erected it was brilliant the bedrooms are already hanging, so no faffing about just straight in and make it home. Since buying this tent and being totally impressed, we have bought a footprint, the matching carpet and a canopy and Royal chairs (very comfy)

This is my first tent, previously I was looking at smaller ones but after going to a see them in real life decided on something a bit bigger. I was attracted to the bedroom arrangement of this tent, with three of us it meant we all have ample space. The plan being to use it for a week, so far however it has only been used for 3 dry weekends so I don't have much of a verdict on its waterproofing. Right so here is everything I can say about it:

The Pros.

1. It's easy to put up, takes me half an hour on my own but with 2 or 3 people can be done much faster.

2. The white roof over the living space makes it very light and feels bigger than it is inside.

3. The larger bedroom is massive. You can definitely fit two double air beds in there. We use Self Inflating Roll Mats which are very comfortable on any surface. With the three layers of groundsheet underneath they are especially comfortable. (Footprint, Tent, Bedroom)

4. The other bedroom is only big enough for me (I'm 6 foot ish) but would be perfect size for two children.

5. The living area is a good size and the mesh on windows and doors keeps it cool when its hot. (hottest I've tested it in was about 26 degrees C)

6. The vents around the rest of the tent are good, they keep it fresh inside but aren't too big.

7. The fitted carpet you can get is soft and keeps the floor quite warm in the evenings.

8. It holds up well in light winds without the guy ropes, haven't had any properly strong winds yet but I'm sure it would cope with it all guyed out properly.

9. It hasn't leaked yet only slightly damp on some mornings but that was due to me shutting the vents so that water dripped in through the mesh.

10. I just like how it looks.

11. Poles are colour coded, bedrooms are colour coded.

12. Little nice things, lantern hook, power hook up zip into main and then into larger bedroom too.

13. I payed 300 with a carpet, footprint and free matching windbreak, so its cheap too.

14. I can stand in everywhere other than the small bedroom.

Cons.

1. Doors are tough to shut in the bedrooms and main when guyed out.

2. Lacks the features of my favourite brand Vango, no tension bands etc but not really a bad thing as such.

3. The groundsheet itself has only a couple of points to peg down on each side so if you pitch on a slight slope wind can get under it a bit, haven't had this to any extreme so far but its my main fear on a windy night.

4. It doesn't go back in the bag. I have taken the poles out and rap those in the footprint separately. However the inners and the main tent including the little peg bag do fit in with a bit of brute force and clever rolling.

5. Never quite seems to pitch perfectly (probably my lack of experience but hay ho)

Yeah thats about it.

Verdict.

Well the Pros outweigh the Cons. Easy to put up, spacious, sturdy and nice little things that some other tents don't have make it a good first tent for 2 to 5 people (6 at a squeeze).

Oh and by the way without the big bedroom up its like a town hall, ideal if it rains you can simply fold it into the corner and double the living space :)

Wow sorry that was a bit long winded. I would definitely recommend it.

I bought a Royal Atlanta 6 from Caravan Tech Services Ltd along with the tent carpet. The first groundsheet and flysheet had incorrectly fitting securing points for the inner tent. Caravan Tech Services arranged a replacement within a day or so. Their service was exemplary.

I found that erecting the basic tent with two people was fairly quick, about 15 minutes. We did do a dry run in the garden first just in case we needed to get the tent up in a hurry. Fixing the many guys ropes in place took quite a while as we had to undo these first time out. I'm sure it'll be a lot quicker next time around.

The tent is roomy, and practical to use and we both enjoyed the week we spent on holiday. It was a big step up from our previous tent in terms of size and space and it made our holiday far more enjoyable as a result. Neither of us is tall but 7 feet of headroom beats crawling around any time.

We used it in very good weather, or so we thought but other campers on site complained of the strong winds overnight (we were on a clifftop site) but we only noticed the temperature drop overnight and the not the wind strength which says something good about the tent's performance.

The tent was bought for 199 and we felt it represented good value for money. The carpet was an additional 29.99. I think the manufacturer has probably saved a little money on the elasticated groundsheet loops and the guy ropes, but these items are easily upgraded. The side windows and huge doors each side of the tent make it light and airy during the daytime. Inside the tent there is plenty of room in between the two inner tents for a family to sit and eat or spend time under cover if the weather turns nasty.

As I said earlier we did have a dummy run setting up the tent in the garden (both the original tent and its replacement)and unlike the other reviewer I did manage to fit the entire tent (including pegs and poles) back into its bag. I won't pretend it was easy, but I have now been through the process a few times, so it can be done.

I would recommend that anyone wishing to step up to a bigger tent should consider the Atlanta 6.

It was a difficult choice between the Atlanta 6 and the Vango Tigris 6 as they are very similar but the white roof on the Atlanta swung it for us as it let so much more light in and made the tent feel much bigger not that it needs it its massive.

We are seasoned campers of over 30yrs experience putting up various tents but this one we struggled with. The principles are simple, same as all tunnel tents, but stretching and manoeuvring the tent out of its concertina once the poles were locked into the hoops was very awkward as the sheer weight and height dragged it over. We ended up with one of us holding the tent hoops upright whilst the other dashed around pegging it out. Its purely down to its size, its a heavy beast and how the previous gentleman pegged it out on his own I really don't know?

However we are as with most tents getting the knack and last time we were fully set up airbeds electric etc and down the pub within the hour. Once up the tent is fabulous its huge inside light airy loads of space, the bedroom has ample room either side of the airbed for moving around there is room in the main tent( we don't put up the 3rd room) for a couple of tables for cooking/eating in bad weather and chairs.

I love the mesh doors and windows so you can be open to the air, watch the world go by but maintain some privacy, and the matching rear and front doors is a boon so you can pitch either direction. The only downside we feel is the Tigris had a rain skirt and the Atlanta tent only just covers the foot print and in heavy rain it may seep in between the two.

The last time we used it it was in really heavy winds blowing branches off trees and though in very heavy gusts it bowed a tad it stayed firmly in place and cosy and warm inside.

We have the extension with zipped door but haven't used it yet.

All in all this tent was the envy of all our friends on the site.I love it

We bought this tent after much research into vis-a-vis tents and are not disappointed so far. It is a lovely airy spacious tent although we do use it for 2 adults and one child and therefore have an extra room for storage.

There are lots of useful pockets in the bedroom compartments of which there are 3 compartments in total.

It has two large doors opposite each other and these can be mesh ventilated by unzipping parts of the doors as can the bedroom compartments. There are see through windows each side which can be opened or covered as required.

We pitched this tent in 30 mins.

We have used it in light rain and moderate winds and we felt very comfortable and secure.

Two main gripes.

1) The footprint is almost larger than the tent base and so not sure if driving rain could get between the footprint and tent groundsheet and puddle there. We will need some worse weather to see if this is the case and whether this affects the tent.

2) We have found that the zips get caught up with either the plastic rain shields or the fabric but this could be due to pitching too tightly.

The other issue is that the tent on the Royal website and the website we bought from said it was 3000HH however when we received it, it said 2500HH on the tent bag. We have phoned Unipart Leisure who make the tent and they said there was a printing error on many of the tent bags and that they are all 3000HH.

All in all we are very happy with the tent and we are now looking at getting the zip up extension to match and look forward to many future camping trips.
