I bought this tent a couple of weeks ago and unfortunately I was not happy with it at all.

First the good points;

This tent is very spacious, easy to erect and take down, good spacious bedrooms, quite waterproof. Good price.

Bad points;

Poorly manufactured ie. Pin holes in the material, door flap was sewn into the seem and it was very difficult to get back in the bag.

I think that I was just unfortunate to have a faulty tent, and if it was made better it would have been a great family tent. But I was put off by this and Argos were very good about it and gave me a refund.

We use this tent with our 5 girls and had plenty of use in all weather. Never had a problem. We put girls all together in big room. We have small room then use other small room for storage. Plenty of room and head height in living area fit in kitchen, table and 7 camp chairs and still space to move. Very easy to erect for large tent {we can do it in 15 mins} fits on all pitches we have come across. Just as easy to take down [fits in bag every time] Great value for money family tent would def have another one if anything happened to ours. We have found [drunken hubby bent pole] that cheap gazebo poles make perfect replacement for damaged poles as same size.

We chose this tent because there are 6 of us and we wanted space, and it doesn't disappoint. It is 7mx3m and a good shape to fit on to pitches. It has plenty of room in the bedroom pods, plenty of head room and ample space in the living area. When the canopys are up it gives a feeling of even more.

It took me and my husband about 1 hour to put up when practicing in the garden and now takes about 40 mins. It is quite simple - feed all the roof poles in and then start at one end adding the supporting vertical poles and anchor down as you go. We found as long as we anchored the starting end down properly and the guys were pretty taut then the rest came easily.

The tent has been out in some horrendous weather including very strong winds, heavy rain and a heavy frost. We found it stands up to the wind really well considering it is large tent and we've never had a problem with leaks. Condensation is kept to a minimum because of vents at the corners and at the ends of the tent, although we haven't had really hot weather yet to test this further!. It has 4 doors, 2 which have windows and when the canopys are up it gives easy access to the living area.

The downsides to this tent, for us, it is quite weighty. We have a 7 seater and when all the seats are in use we are left with little boot space. We had to put this in the footwells behind the drivers seats. It would be fine however if you had to use of the boot or a trailer.

Also, I feel it's a '2 person' job of putting it up. I suppose in very calm conditions 1 person could manage if they HAD to but not sure if the canvas would be pleased to be put under that much pressure. It is easier if 1 person is on either side putting the vertical poles up at the same time. I certainly wouldn't even attempt to do it by myself.

The other thing we would of liked was a SIG but I suppose that's down to personal choice.

Overall, this is a good sized tent and good value for money.
