We have owned our Outwell Hatford XL now for 3/4 years, and really struggle to fault it. We have always found it easy to put up(about an hour start to completely finish), although husband does say that there is alot of pegs to peg out. It has never leaked on us and we have camped it some horrendous rain. We nornally use the extention porch to, which is a great addition for this tent. It is a large tent so this may limit you on pitches, and we always mention size when booking. There is a adequate porch for shoes etc. Then a large living area, which is great for when the weather is bad and the kids need to stuck inside. Three bedrooms, one of which we use for storage, one small downside is that the bedrooms can be a bit saggy and you cant stand up in them (something I think they have improved with the latest model, 2008). At night when all zipped up it does feel very cosy inside due to being fully sewn in. We always use a self-made groundsheet to keep the under tent clean, but I think you can now buy them ready made (couldnt when we first brought this tent). When the weather is hot, with our model you can fully open all the windows to let air through (which I dont think you can do with some models) which does help. Overall a great family tent with, in our opinion, only a few small minor faults.

An extensive family tent with three separate bedrooms that can take up to eight and still leave generous living space that is further enhanced by the Panorama Room, which comes with a Detachable Bathtub Groundsheet and a front that can be opened up to fully catch the glorious sun. Ideal for those who like their bedrooms separated the Hartford XL pitches flysheet first or as one, and the spacious living area is enhanced by features such as Skylight Windows, OWS System (Outwell Wind Stabilizer System) and OEP System (Outwell Easy Pegging System). There is also a rear door, so access is never a problem.
