After years of use, our conway trailer tent had finally swayed it's last.

We have been caravanning the last 3 or four years, but the family just loves to camp.So it was time to buy a new tent.

When I came across the hi gear Kalahari 8, I couldn't believe my eyes. It was everything we were looking for, and on offer at GO-OUTDOORS in wigan.For 199.00 (and still is).

As my previous favourite was the sunvalley 8. At 400 quid, this was a positive gem of a find!

We used it for 4 days on Anglesey, and it is brilliant, really easy to pitch, warm and cosy, 3000hh, kids loved it and we were all comfortable.

Comes with poles to hold the door up to make a little porch area, well ventilated, easy to put away, a real little gem.

When we bought it, it was on a Friday, and had we waited til the Monday, we could (And still can) buy a kalahari 10 for 189.00. Unbelievable value, but the 8 was big enough for our needs, and we couldn't be bothered going back for the sake of a tenner.

Going away for a week 3rd august to destination undecided, but can't wait.

Got some cushion floor tiles for in the bedrooms and living area, it's a home from home.

Great tent, Great value, Great fun.

As a family tent goes.This is the one for you!

Manufacturer's Description

An updated version of Hi Gear's popular tunnel tent, perfect for relaxed family camping holidays.

The Hi Gear Kalahari 8 Elite is a spacious and stable tunnel-style tent with two large partitionable bedrooms in a face-to-face layout, roomy enough for you, your family and all your gear.

Pre-attached high-visibility guylines, reduced pole sleeves, and sewn-in polyethylene groundsheet make pitching the tent quick and easy.

The bedrooms comfortably sleep four at each end of the tent, in 2+2 inners with breathable polyester walls. Bedrooms can also be removed, to give you extra storage space, or room for dirty gear.

The large living space has two large windows and hanging storage pockets to help keep it tidy, organised and liveable. Multiple vents along the roof help air flow throughout the tent.

The sewn-in groundsheet combined with the fire-retardant polyester flysheet (with 4000mm hydrostatic head) give you a fully sealed and ventilated internal environment, so you'll be completely protected from draughts and sustained downpours. The two doors can be propped and extended out to use for extra shelter from rain or stretching the space out for more room if it's sunny.

Other useful features include the water-repellent zips and an electrical cable access point.
