We have given our Eldorado a busy season so far and it has been great, for the money there is nothing quite like it. And you cant beat being under proper canvas
It is great in bad weather, surviving some dreadful winds and rain quite unflustered (when other tents/campers were going home). Dries pretty quick too. In hot weather it is still pleasant to be in as well - ideal when you have little ones that need to nap in the afternoon
Materials and construction are mostly very good with the feeling it will last years. I have had to do a little stitching on a zip seam and the living space groundsheet is cheap/horrid but very minor things
It is an easy solo pitch, 15 mins or so in nice ground but easily a lot longer if it is rocky. I take a kneeling pad now. And lots of rock pegs.
Could be used without an inner tent (like the Dutch do) for more space if needed but you would then need a (c£40) footprint groundsheet. The similarly sized Rosas (with ZIG) would maybe be a better choice for that
The (almost) matching Obelink tarp also makes for a very flexible set up. We love ours and are glad we got it

I was a little wary of buying a tent without seeing it erected, especially a design and manufacturer I had until recently not heard of. But I am seriously impressed.
We needed a cheap weekend tent for 2 adults and 2 young children, there are a myriad of faceless fibreglass and nylon tents but they often feel flimsy and are no fun to put up and take down, especially solo
The Eldorado is very nicely put together from decent materials (the Hypercamp is 90% of Cabanon quality at 25% of the price, the rrp seems huge but Obelink always have good deals). The canvas is a good weight without being a burden, stitching and seams are fine. The inner has a good tough ground sheet though the zips are maybe a little flimsy. A lovely touch is all the roll backs have a strong cotton loop and toggle system, SO much easier than most nylon tents.
The size is cozy for 4 but perfect for our needs, for a few years at least. The sleep space takes 4 (big) self inflating mats and sleeping bags/stuff fine but clothes and other things have to go at the end of the kids beds, when they grow it will probably be a little small for 4 of us with clothes inside the inner at night.
The colour combination is a slightly quaint grey and dark blue, my wife loves it but I am not so keen - but hey, it is perfect for the job intended, easy to put up even solo, feels very solid and really is so cheap (we paid Eu180 delivered) you figure there must be a catch . . . If there is we can't find it - thank you Obelink :)
