Hi there and welcome to ukcs.

Sunncamp are one of the more reputable makes. Lots of people on here have sunncamp tents including myself. Other people will go on about Khyam, Vango or Outwell tents but sunncamp are up there with the best and the company has been going for donkeys years, so they must be doing something right.

Good luck

Dave

Can't comment on regular tents but I bought a secondhand Sunncamp Day Tent over 3 years ago and it has been up & down countless times and used winter & summer as beer tent, free standing awning etc.

It is just starting to feel it's age, I need to put some seam sealer where the loops for rolling up the windows are attached (things get hung on them a lot), also last trip out one of the guys ripped but that was my fault because I missed seeing one of the guys had come unpegged in the wind and that was the way it was blowing so the other guy was taking all the strain.

All in all I can't fault it at all.

If you can't see the light at the end of the tunnel, just keep going till you go round the bend.

We have a Sunncamp and it has been great in fact as a result two other family friends have also bought the same tent - it has never leaked and is easy to put up - it has been great even in high winds.

We love ours

hi we have a sunncamp vario 600 - it's a good tent but the sleeping area's are a bit tight, other than that I don't like the silver groundsheet, as I think it looks a bit cheap & cheerful!!!..but that is just personal taste.  We also own a vango (aspen 700dlx) to be honest if I compare the 2 tents, the vango wins hands down for quality, stability and features, however the sunncamp is still a very good tent, it's just we have one of each to compare with one another.

Thank you gbean. 

I posted a similar query on 10th and have bumped it back to the top a couple of times but noone posted a response.  The replies to your posting have been very helpful to me.

Good luck with your Sunncamp if you go ahead and buy.

Hi Guys

I have a Sunncamp as do rest of my family.I bought it because of its design and abiltiy to withstand the weather,It was severely tested in May this year but never let me down.The silver groundsheet refects back lost heat ,but if you don't like it you can put picnic rugs on it as I do and increase further the insulating properties.Never had a leak either I love my tent.Enjoy what ever tent you decide on.

We love Sunncamp tents - now on our fourth and despite getting caught out by a design fault in the Evolution 600 ( 2006 model )  it hasn't stopped us buying the improved 2007 model because apart from the leaky door - it was a fantastic tent !

We love the silver groundsheet because it feels so warm underfoot - also make the tent feel ' lighter' inside !

Hi We  have a sunncamp haven 600 and a sunncamp continental frame tent, never had any problems even in quite bad weather,we prefer to use the frame tent in hot weather because it gets so hot inside the haven but that can be said of most non canvas tents,the haven takes less room in the car and is quicker to put up.

 have a Sunncamp Orbit XL as well as a Kyham.

The Orbit is my big tent and I have had it for about 3 years now and it's fab.

The quality is top notch and despite it being a monster its easy to put up
