Cabanon biscaya 500 Tent with sun canopy. We’ve had our amazing, spacious tent for over 10 years. It has two large bedrooms (one is divided in half to make 3 rooms) sleeping 6 in comfort. It’s 5m wide by 5.7 deep and about 7.5 with the canopy. It has lots of headroom throughout. Because of the clever design, the guide ropes only attach at the front so it can fit on a narrow pitch.
The tent is made from a super hard wearing and breathable polyester/poly cotton, has aluminium poles and a thick rubber ground sheet. We always put ours on tarpaulin (no longer have it) but only to keep it clean.
The tent can be erected in about 30 mins by two adults. First peg out ground sheet, then get internal poles in position, then zip tent outer to tent groundsheet, then insert first set of inner poles and pull erect, then zip in other inner poles, then attach ropes and peg down outer. I haven’t pegged it out well in photos because our soil is very stoney.
We bought the tent because we stayed at an exposed site and had two tents damaged. This tent is like a bomb shelter. And we had about 8 years of brilliant holidays until the kids grew old/wanted to go abroad. Rock solid in high wind, bone dry and very cozy and bug-free with the fully zipped in ground sheet. It’s been in our spare bedroom since it was last used about 4 years ago.
Minor issues (photos available). One pole was very slightly damaged by a helpful but unsupervised child and the tent does need to be erected by adults. One of the guide rope clips was broken in our car door when drying it. It could easily be replaced, but we just tied that guide strap. We think one of the 20-odd rubbery hooks on the underside of the ground sheet is also missing, but it came like it and has never been an issue. The canvass has a few marks but looks and feels fantastic.
Bedrooms are in perfect condition and all hooks and plastic ties are present and correct.
Pegs, mallet and all guide ropes included.
The sun canopy creates a large, sheltered outside area and we have never cooked inside the tent. There is also a small zipped outlet for an electric cable.
Always packed away fully dry, we’ve waited until the good weather to bring it out for an airing.
We used a rug from a wolf lake 7 tent, that fits nicely and I will include. I also have an electric cable and gas canister
