Hi there, another newbie here.
I would also like to know if anyone has experience of the hurricane from ridgeline - is this an ebay only tent? We are looking for a vis a vis 4 bed tent, Any suggestions?
Thanks in anticipation.

This model seems similar to the Hurricane by Skandika, but we are also looking for some feedback before purchasing.

Also..from the ebay auctions it shows the manufacturer as "Far-View".

I can't advise through personal experience, but Ridgeline seem to only be available through ebay, so not a reputable manufacturer. However, there are a few members of this forum who own Skandika tents which are by a German manufacturer, and they all seem pleased with the quality of Skandika.

If you can't afford a new tent by a reputable manufacturer, you could look for a second-hand Vango, Coleman, Sunncamp, Khyam, etc. on ebay - at least then you will be sure to get a quality tent which won't let you down on your first trip.

We have spoken, via ebay-mail, to the main seller of these tents "Ridgeline-UK" who have said that these are from the same manufacturer as the Skandika, and that they also sold a good number of them last year. Their feedback is 100%, but as with ebay you cant always read the older historic auctions to actually see what item the feedback is for.

All the tech sheets are identical to those available for the Skandika, and "on paper" they look worth a try for part-time campers like ourselves. I'll post some feedback once we have one in our posession.

I've just purchased hurricane tent from Ridgeline.  I'll post feedback once we've used the tent.
