We just bought one and test fired it last Wednesday, it's a fantastic piece of kit. There are just two of us and we love this barn of a tent, we got ours from JR Leisure in Leicester for 378 including the stone protector sheet, they advertise on The Bay too and will do combined shipping. We drove down to their shop in Leicester to see the size of the packs and, at 53Kg between them, it's a lot heavier than our XXL Ridgidome but with 10 legs and 5 roof poles all in steel it's no wonder it's heavy ! We got the carpet for it from Khyam (who are partly owned by JR Leisure and Wynster nowadays I believe) for 52.50 shipped.

We've never had a pole and sleeve tent before, having had a Ridgidome for 8 years, so our test fire session took longer than we'd have liked (over an hour) but we learned a lot about how to do it smarter next time. The tent comes with two 3 berth inners and a 2 berth but we didn't repack the other 3 berth or the two berth or the living room divider panel you get with it, they're surplus to requirements and made the 2nd bag easier to pack but the 8 x 4 mtr flysheet was a bit of a monkey to get back in the bigger bag. Khyam made the zips to run around three sides of the bags for some bizarre reason. The groundsheet comes ready zipped in so no need to faff about with it first time out and there are lots of clever features, like the little zip to let your EHU cable in and velcro loops up the side of the tent to hang an electric light from the ceiling.

The tent feels absolutely huge inside when all the windows are uncovered and we're looking forward to sleeping in it (we just played about with pitching at the test firing session).

I have to say I'm disappointed with the size of the bedroom, it will be a very tight fit to get our double height bed in there, it fills the floor area laid out flat, so I'm thinking it will be a tads too big when fully inflated. I would like to be able to try a Cleveland 6 full width bedroom in it at some stage so if any Cleveland fans want to swap a full width bedroom for 2 3 berths, shout up !!
