I bought this tent as an early Christmas present for my son and his family on easter Saturday (2012) as we were going camping at Billing Aquadrome. Their own tent did not have an integral sewn in ground sheet. As they have two very young children we (my wife and me) decided that they needed a draught free environment. The tent is huge, easy to erect. Once it was pegged out it wasa solid structure. During our stay we had a heavy storm overnight and next day there was not one leak, in all truth I did expect the tent to leak due to the strength and duration of the storm. This tent is outstanding, Brilliant value for money, In fact when I need to renew my own tent I will purchase one of these for my own use.

We picked ours up in the Boxing day sale ay Go Outdoors, we got the footprint and carpet in with the deal, both of which are a good buy.

The tent is huge, so far we have been for a long weekend at the south coast and the weather was great so no idea about the waterproof ability but we love it. 2 adults and 2 small children with plenty of room to spare. The kids wanted to share a room and we used one for all the clothes and had the last one empty. Ours is the 2010 model with the gap at the bottom of the front door but as it's our first sewn in tent it seemed pretty draught proof to us. Easy to put up, I did most myself while wifey kept an eye on the kids, only needing a hand to upright the poles, it took about 50 min to put up, nice and easy. We're planning on a trip to the lakes in a few weeks so we'll see how we get on that time but for now it all looks good.

Fantastic tent. Big and spacious with lots of windows. Had 6 adults, 1 child and 1 large boxer dog in it one one rainy evening and still plenty of room.

Big bedrooms, plenty of room. We only have 3 of them up as only 2 adults, 1 child and the other as a walk in wardrobe and bedroom for the dog! Gives you loads of living space.

Been camping loads this summer as it really is home from home! They have sorted out the problems of the front door from last years model as it is a fully zipped door so no drafts and keeps the dog in.

Only issue is a big panel at the back which is an air vent if you peg the tent out using all the guy ropes, it makes it wide open and cold at night. Only realised after our 2nd trip so no longer peg it all out, just let it hang down. Think will need to invest in some velcro to tape it down when its windy!

Overall though would highly recommend buying one of these.

For the price this is a high spec,enormous and well built tent. We first used this tent at Easter and I was pleasantly surprised by how sturdy it was. We had problems with the door as mentioned in previous reviews. Additionally we found we had been supplied with the wrong bedrooms and also the fittings were not strong and one broke.

Go outdoors exchanged for a new tent and I was hoping all would be well and was expecting that being the newer model there would be no more problems with the door. Well, my partner never even got to put the tent up.He arrived in Cornwall with his children and without me as I had to work - only to find this time he had been supplied with two sets of side poles and no curved roof poles. Phone calls to Go Outdoors revealed that this was the case with the entire batch - so please if you have bought one of these do check the bag contents thoroughly before setting out on your holiday!

Full marks to Go Outdoors who sent someone all the way from Exeter with a Vango Maritsa 700 by way of exchange and to Seaview International Campsite near Mevagissey who gave the family use of a chalet to shelter from the rain whilst they were waiting.

We have had issues with other Hi Gear products lately and personally I will not be buying their products again. Vango and Outwell products may cost more but I have had no troubles with either brand in the past.

I bought this tent on offer along with the footprint and carpet and cannot rate it highly enough. It is amazing and a lovely home from home and even at the full price it is worth every penny. It is spacious, light and everything worked perfectly. With the new fully sewn in groundsheet and fully zipped in doors we kept our dogs firmly inside with no chance of escape! The 4 double pods are lovely and spacious and the space at the rear is an excellent storage and dressing area.

Sitting in the evening, with the huge windows we could sit inside keeping dogs under control, admire the fields and trees on our comfy hi gear chairs. I am looking forward to my next camping trip in August and just sad I don't have time before then! I think I prefer this tent to my home!

We bought this tent this year when it was on offer at Go Outdoors, what a tent. It's huge! Amazing amount of space inside, really easy to put up in about 40mins. We are 2 adults and 2 children so only use 3 of bedrooms, removing the 4th gives us a huge area at the back of the tent as dressing and storage area.

I'm guessing the design has been updated as ours now seals completely at the front with a zip that goes right around the bottom of the front door making the tent nicely sealed away from the wind.

The tent is big and almost fills the boot, but its worth it. If you like a lot of space when camping then this is the tent for you. We even had enough room inside to set up a projector and screen and turned the front section into home movie theatre!

This is an awesome tent, I can't recommend it enough.

What a tent, absolutely love it, easy to erect although instructions are not the best, 4 great bedrooms, lots of living space our family of 5 have ample room. Becomes very light / airy when the windows are open. Yes the front door could do with valcro at the bottom and is a bit tight to close, but once done a couple of times becomes a lot easier.

Used it once so far so good. Lots of room, kids love it. Kept us nice and dry in a thunder storm. Can get a bit cold on a night, a couple of blow heaters recommended, it's a big tent to warm up. One problem is geting place to pitch with hookup and not having to pay through the nose for two pitches. It does not take too long to but up can have it up in half an hour but it is a two man job .

After buying our (1st Corado 8) in August last year we have had nothing but problems. After getting our (2nd Corado 8)in September we had the same problems with that one, then getting our 3rd we learnt our lesson. The first one, all the bedrooms snapped in a bit of wind that we had whilst camping. We took it back to the shop and complained the shop gladly replaced it with 2nd one. We went away in September thinking that would be problem solved 'it must have just been a faulty tent' and we encountered the same again. All of the bedrooms were snapping off the elastics. Also when we opened it one of the pins for the back leg was missing, we ended up having to tie it to a tree. We then went back to the shop and got the tent replaced AGAIN! We went camping in the Easter holidays this time I had to re-stitch over all of the elastics and the support ties on the rooms before we went.

This seemed to sort the problem right out. So I can only recommend that any1 buying the Corados, re-stitch all the ties & elastics before you go camping.:(

Other than that (our bungalow) lol tent is really very spacious and very sturdy, a good family tent.

We love this tent - it is HUGE. As a family of six this tent saw us comfortably through two weeks of camping in Devon. Even when it rained we stayed cheerful. The kids got lost in it. The downside is once packed up it is still big and when loaded into my car there is no room for anything/anybody else. Perhaps that is not a downside!

Cheap and fabulous I love it

Manufacturer's Description

The Hi Gear Corado 8 is a large 8 person family tent that offers a great combination of space and practicality.

The door canopy offers the facility to cook inside or out without damaging the groundsheet, and the choice of entrances allows you to choose your layout of tent furniture to suit your camp, and to ventilate the tent fully if it overheats or fills with barbecue smoke.

The internal standing height allows the freedom of movement and the feeling of space.

The 3000m hydrostatic head waterproofing ensures a dry, reliable retreat in troublesome weather while the sewn in ground sheet stops the wet dew in the morning.

To give you and your fellow campers even more space and luxury, it's possible to extend the tent using the Hi Gear Corado 8 canopy.

Ideal for family holidays, the Corado is perfect for getting away from it all.
