4 Reviews of the Nizza

What a stonkin tent! It feels really solid once it is up and there is so much space. The seams are all taped.Nice! The mesh on the openings keeps the bugs at bay.Fantastic! It was at a knock down price on ebay but even at the amazon price this is a really serious contender. I put it up alone on a gusty day and it really was not bothered. Being a tunnel tent it is not a contender for a Snowdon endurance test, but if it is a wet weekend away this tent is a strong contender.

Putting up is simple but time consuming. It is bulky, but I have an estate to put it in so that does not bother me. There are no purpose made extensions etc, but there seems to be enough seams etc to cobble on non standard fittings. Even use a cheap dome tent for an extra pod.There is soooo much space.

We bought this from Germany on ebay,arrived within 2 days ! Excellent tent with non opening roof windows,split bedroom,centre hook loop for lantern & loops to keep cables tidy & pockets,I tried a round ext electric plug to fit through electrics entry point,as with other reviewer commentated probs with 3 pin, probably use extra ropes as well just to keep peace of mind it doesn't blow away & maybe anchors as advertised on this site.

Not used in anger yet so hope rating given doesn't let us down when used. Bought for ease of putting up after reading reviews. Erected tent in garden to check & went up with ease & I'm disabled so was a bit apprehensive,but all good. The only drawback for me is it is a little bulky even in it's holdall & heavy so good job got fit young sons.The quality makes up for it though.

Could have given 10/10 except one niggle is the lack of carpet,canopies or extensions to fit as most that did fit are out of production by other manufacturers as Skandika don't make them themselves for some reason as with most of their models I found ,so it's a hunt for used Montana & Vango which cost a lot more used than the nizza is new. If you need spare poles should you break one for some reason, again hard to get hold of but a search for the right diameter etc can be found with a long wait & search on ebay etc.

Other than those niggles seems an excellent tent & can't wait to try it out as weather this year was terrible after we bought it so hope weather picks up from april or so. It's a lot better than the tent packs you see in certain bike/motor parts shops for quality & others at same or twice the price. Seems to be available in any colour you like as long as its green.Hope this helps. Was originally looking at the skandika 10 & 12 berth models & smaller versions as were cheaper than nizza but everyone I spoke to said they were drafty,falling apart & most camp sites wouldn't let them go on as too big .

Bought this tent on e bay for £100(only used once man bought it and didnt like camping) I used it with my wife and three small children,found this tent to be brilliant.More then enough room,ample living space for two double mattress, chairs and tables, kids toys ect.

Would recommend this tent to anyone,we had no worries with weather at all,it handles all brilliantly.Very easy to assemble took me about 20 minutes at the most, and around 10 minutes to disassemble.

The Nizza made the first camping experience for my children fantastic! (was worried they would not like camping but they thought of the whole thing as a huge adventure) Great tent bought for an even greater price!

Bought one of these new off Ebay Germany for £142 including delivery to replace our aging Vango Colorado 800 dlx and used it for a week in Dorset this August. I must admit I was pleasantly surprised by the quality however it has a number of minor faults which prevent it from getting a 9/10.

GOOD POINTS

The price,Nice size and design very similar to the older type Outwell Montana. Sewn in groundsheet, Plenty of vents and windows,Large front door + smaller doors on each side these small doors have canopies over them which helps keep the rain out when opening them Fly screens on all internal and external doors, Single 6 berth bedroom pod with roll up divider for 3+3, Very easy to put up I can do it on my own, The plastic tent poles work well. One thing I must add, and this applies to lots of other tents, if you are using full size airbeds and the bedroom divider then you will only get 4 beds.

BAD POINTS

The 2 side vented windows and the rear vent have no zips/velcro on the bottom edge and flap about in the wind when closed (noisy) I bought some stick on velcro and put some in the middle which helped. The double external vents above the bedroom has a large flap over it and cannot be closed, great in summer but a bit drafty inside when its windy. The poles for the 2 side door canopies fix to spigots on the flysheet and over tension the zips making it difficult to open the doors fully. There are only a total 6 guy ropes on this tent 1 on each side and 2 at each end plus 2 webbing straps, I bought some 22mm internal tent clips and clipped them to each side pole and fitted 8 extra guys for peace of mind.Finally the electric entry points are small eyelets meaning you have to take the plug off the cable to get it through the hole!

These are only little niggles and to be honest most can be corrected easily.

For the money I paid im well pleased with it and the rest of the family think its great a big improvement over the old Colorado plus if you want to extend at anytime both the Outwell Montana and the Vango Sungari extensions and canopies fit on to it
