Well we absolutley love this tent, we are a family of 4 an it is so spacious. As previously mentioned we have had some roblems with leakage at the seams however a quick reseal soon solved it. We have been battered by rain, sleet and high winds and it has stood up to the lot. When we camped at Easter the temperatures were sub zero and the tent did feel cold (mainly coming through the front door). The poles are very heavy but as I've said we have had the tent up in some very strong winds and have felt very secure. Plenty of space for a grown up family of 4. We have the canopy extension and use this for cooking and eating, the joy of this is you can sit out side whatever the weather and arent exposed to the elements.

This is our 'big tent' which we have had for a few years (darker shade of green) - we got a bargain for the tent and porch together and because of the bargain price chose this rather than fork out a fortune on an Outwell. Great tunnel tent with loads of room, if you are camping in colder weather its difficult to keep the tent warm as its so big. The canopy is a great cooking area and is ample for a family of four; once you get the hang of it its pretty easy to put up / down. Only downside for me was overall quality and absence of extras as mentioned in previous comments, especially the zips - closing the front door has always been a pain and its get draughty due to design. I also wish the front door had an insect net as per the side entrance, although this may have been improved on later models. Overall a really good tent but with the price increase I have seen over the past 3 years I would, should I be buying this tent now, seriously consider adding little bit extra and investing in an Outwell.

I would buy this tent again but would wait until the offers come around to make it worth while; I would also certainly invest in the canopy if your are buying this tent

I love this tent, loads of room for the four of us, especially with the canopy extension on, which makes the outside space the same size as the living area. We set up our kitchen and table and chairs under the canopy, which saves the tent becoming full of cooking smells etc.

We had the bedrooms as one room with the divider zipped out so the kids weren't alone and it easily accommodated our double airbed and a single and also a travel cot for the youngest.

In terms of pitching, I did this on my own in about 45 mins (1 hour after guying out) while the missus looked after the kids.

My 2 person pitching guide for Corado 6.

1/Feed curved poles through tent and leave legs off to keep the weight down.

2/ Peg tent back corners

3/ Add legs to back frame, erect and peg top middle guy rope so frame stands up.

4/ Add legs to next frame, erect and fix hoops.

5/ Repeat no.4

We tried the GoOutdoors method but found it was too heavy for mrs to drag five frames out. So we had to reduce the weight, get help or change the tent. So we came up with this method and it worked a treat.

I've only tried the tent on my garden and can't really fault it, I've read a lot about the problems with the door not zipping up and a problem with the the flap at the bottom, these seemed to be cured now the door now zips all the way round so there's no drafts or unwanted insects getting in or dogs and 3 year olds getting out.

The tent up easily enough, about 40 mins. If I was to find any fault it would the weight of the poles there really heavy but I suppose in strong winds they will prove there worth. There's loads of room in the tent and the bedrooms are massive the porch at the front will be great for cooking under and when the rain falls it will come in handy.

Can't wait for Easter.

I bought this tent for a week long holiday in pooley bridge - lake district. There is only my 7 year old son & I but I had friends coming too so went for a large tent & we had just gone back to tents from caravans.

It had plenty of space - certainly too much for us, even when all the kids were inside it was too big for our needs.

Put up in 20 minutes with 3 of us the first time. Packed away with a struggle in the rain though.

Was warm enough but did leak at some seams & the door gap wasn't good. Didn't have a problem with the zip on door as zipped it up

Before erecting.

The extra canopy meant that we had tons of stuff outside & plenty of room. Had the picnic table & 4 chairs out there plus folding chairs, fridge, cooker stand & all the food & drinks.

I've sold it now but liked the design so

Will be searching for a similar layout but smaller. Corado 4 is still too big for us.

2011 version. We picked this up from Gloucester GoOutdoors actually exchanged it for a Kalahari8. Not sure what has been updated on this model but it does have a full zip to the front door and no problem with the width of the door \ zip action as on the other reviews here. We had a mixture of weather this weekend and the tent performed well. Very pleased. Only problem is erecting the tent with Mrs is a 'struggle' and 'needs a bit of perfecting'. We found packing it away in the bag without the inner tent was easy enough and the inner went in with the poles. So for a first time out cant complain at all, really pleased :-)

Fantastic tent. We have been on 2holidays now in ours. 1st time for a week and 2nd time for 2weeks. During our holidays we have experience pretty much every weather and our tent stood up 2it extremely well. We had high winds, floods and storms as well as sun etc. I could praise the tent enough 4 durability, size and comfort. We also own the carpet and extra canopy. We have had many people comment on how impressive our tent looks.

Only negatives we can find are the front door is tight 2close but is manageable with some faffing about. Also we bough some more velcro 2keep window shutters from falling down. Not a big problem really. We would definitely recommend this tent.

This tent is excellent. Extremely roomy and great for tall people like my husband. I wont repeat past points but we haven't found any problems with the front door but have found that one of the back window seals leaked slightly when we had a heavy down pour. The only two annoying things about this tent are the following

1. The window flaps are secured by velcro on the tops of the windows. We found that the velcro would have been better on the bottom as the weight can pull them down.

2. The porch has nothing to hook anything on eg, some tents have little hooks built in for a washing line. This tent has nothing for this. And we found that on rainy days we had no where to hang towels.

All in all only slightly annoying on a few trivial points. But the benefits (stated in the other reviews) far out weigh them.

Love this tent so roomy for the family would of give it 10 out of 10 but the door is bad design really tight to close unless you unclip the sides and had to add velcro to the bottom of the door to stop it blowing up. On our latest camping trip this tent stood up to high winds and heavy rain so we are very pleased with it
