I have just erected my SV8 for the first time. I pegged out the main tent but not the guys. The main proch door opened and closed without problem. This is an SV8 2006 model.

Because I put up the tent in my next doors garden, I didn't have room for the main guy ropes. Is this door only a problem after the guys have been pegged out? Does anyone know. Do I have false confidence that I have a good one???????

Just had word from Outdoormegastore that Outwell have confirmed that the SunValley 8 does have an 'inherent error'. They have offered to exchange our tent for one of a pre-examined batch they are receiving next week or a full refund. We have gone for the exchange as this is the only tent that meets our requirments.

I just posted this on the other SV8 thread, but thought it should be posted here too.

Well Tony decided to ring ABC on Monday gone, to see if there was any developments on the SV8. They told him that they had had a new batch in and after the replacements that were put aside, there would be 2 left. Also that if we decided to go ahead with the sale, we were assured that if anything would be to be wrong with the tent, we could have a refund. Tony said he'd ring them back, and spoke to me about it. I wasn't sure about buying from them but eventually agreed. We went down later that day, picked the tent up (ABC couldn't have been any nicer!), brought it home and erected it on Tuesday - NO PROBS WHATSOEVER - YAY!! It was very easy to put up and we tried the zip numerous times and it's great. We're not sure if it has been replaced with a more heavy duty zip too. Also received this email earlier this evening which I thought may be of interest.

Dear Tony

 Thank you for your e-mail, our apologies for the delay in replying.

 Yes, unfortunately we did have an initial problem with one batch of tents which has now been rectified.

 Please feel confident in purchasing a Sun Valley 8 Tent.

 Please do not hesitate to contact me if you require any further information

 Regards

 Angus Lochtie

Business Development Manager

 I'd say if anyone is still interested in this tent, then to go ahead. :)

Help! I've just found this thread when we were about to purchase a SV 8 has anyone bought one since the problems have been sorted and are you happy with the tent -  it's the first tent for 15 years so I have to get it right!

Yes we bought one from ABC and are more than happy with it. All their stock was sent back and replaced with new. The front zip that was the problem looks like it was replaced with a more heavy duty one. My advice is, wherever you are going to buy it from, it may well be worth mentioning about this problem and if they can guarantee that any problem stock was replaced.

We are so pleased that we held on and waited for this tent as we'd set our heart on it. We went away for 5 days in it recently and it was perfect. Obviously if you buy it, then try it out asap first..but that goes for any tent really.

I'd definately say go for it!
