That is insane! It's practically a marquee lol. Would make for an interesting conversation when trying to book a site!

Yikes! I daresay sites with rally fields or similar could handle it... wouldn't fancy taking it home wet, though - where on earth would you put it up to dry it?

And there's no living area to speak of, which means you will need to pitch a marquee alongside it to sit and feed everyone.

Part of me would like to pitch it, unzip and remove all the bedroom inners and have a party in it!

We went camping at haven perranporth with a family who had one last year they booked two pitches. They had a living area at the front of the tent so no probs there although pooling water caused the tent poles to break in the middle and they had to buy a new tent mid week so id be watchful xx

Our Sunncamp Manta was larger than this at 36ft x 17ft (if laid out the same, footprint was 36ft x 36ft).

Billed as 16 man but in reality you could sleep another 8 in the living area and still have a kitchen etc set up. . Living area was so huge we parked our Zafira in it. Thought we were mad doing it but somebody else did it with theirs too (see reviews for pics)!!

Always had to pay for 2 pitches but it was great fun And we used it a lot until friends and family lost interest in camping.

I can see a market for this.....But sometimes think a line has to be drawn somewhere in the size of tents being manufactured or who knows where it will all end...

You would be limiting yourself to sites that have no policy on group bookings if you bought this monster...

Not for me personally....Unless you stripped out the sleeping pods.....And turned it into a "PARTY" tent....

Didn't Argos sell this a few years ago, marketed as a scout tent? Would be ideal for guides, scouts and youth groups in their own rally fields.

We've struggled to find campsites that will take our Royal Pescara - never mind something this size - and actually resorted to blowing a small inheritance on a Kampa Croyde so we would fit on a commercial site last year!

Daft if you ask me unless you are a scout group or similar, at 200 would also doubt the quality.

$300 equates to 198:50 (today)

Blimey.

"Look at the prices too!!

because the quality of the fabric is not as high as ours, that's why! you would be lucky to find one with a HH more than 1500mm
