I'm currently looking for a new tent for a small family (Just the 3 of us). We used to only buy larger family tents, but i'm now finally seeing sense and want to downscale. Which obviously means quicker pitch times and less kit to transport. Initially I was looking at the Kampa Hayling 4 air but I stumbled upon the Vango Rosewood Tipi, which when we went inside one just had the wow factor, it really is amazing and has made us think.
As it is new for 2018, I can't really find any feedback or reviews of one online. So I wondered if anybody on here has a Rosewood and can let me know how it is to pitch, does it hold up to winds ok? And basically would you recommend it. I'm looking to buy within the next few days ready for our next camping trip over the bank holiday weekend so would welcome any advice.
Don't forget to leave a review of all tents you've used, for a chance to win fantastic prizes
Have read mixed reviews on the Vango FB pages tbh. The negatives are that it's tricky and time consuming to put up even for people who know what there doing...there are videos on youtube for you to check out.
The front door has no windows, so you can only see out the sides, which is a bit odd.
The canopy is too shallow to be of any real use.
Useable space on the inside is limited because of the sloping sides.
None of these are my opinion, as I've never seen one in the flesh lol
On the other hand it's a eye catching tent, I just don't think it's very practical.
Each to there own though. I think it's like the Outwell Tipi style which was a bit marmite.
