First off I have to confess that I love this tent. It is big enough for long term use but is ideal for touring too. One person can put it up in about half an hour and it is even quicker with two.
It comes in a sturdy holdall with pegs and 3 poles and inner pods. The groundsheet is sewn in and poles and sleeves are colour coded. There is also an optional footprint, awning, carpet and extension. King poles can be added to make a front canopy. I couldn't find any easycamp ones so got some Vango 210cm ones.
Quality is good. There is a zipped inlet for EHU and the Sig can be let down at the entrance to avoid trips. Pockets are provided in the pods and Velcro cable ties lead from the EHU to the roof for hanging a mains light.
There are some signs this is a budget version of an Outwell. The window blinds are a pain to roll up and are secured by a nylon loop and toggle. I'd have preferred elastic. Likewise both doors and the ones for the inners. There are midge screens on both the inners but none on the main tent. Ventilation is supplied by a vent at either end.
All in all, it suits my purpose. Genuinely big enough for four, easy to pitch and stable.

The tent Wichita Twin uses a vis-à-vis bedroom configuration to provide a camping family or group of friends with a high degree of privacy. This easy to pitch tunnel tent has pre-angled poles for optimum head height throughout and great living space. Large front and rear doors lead you into a living room that is well lit by large panoramic windows. A full sewn-in groundsheet keeps out drafts and bugs.
