We bought 'Lana' off a well known auction site for £73.00 in April 2012. Couldn't wait to try her out, so took her to the East Coast for an outing.
She was advertised as a 4 berth, but it soon became apparent that she's actually built for 6 in a 2 + 4 configuration. The bedrooms are quite large compared to more modern nylon tents. I think this tent would actually comfortably accommodate 6 for sleeping and for living space
The fly sheet is thick, lovely Cabanon canvas, the frame really sturdy steel poles. Yes, they are heavy, but boy can they stand up to anything they have thrown at them!
The poles went up easily, they were joined by springs all over the place, so there were only about 5 sections to put together in the end, but it was fairly obvious where everything went.
Over the 1 night we were out, we had rain, hail, a hard frost and sunshine. It was also pretty windy (nearly took off when we first out the canvas over the frame, but I think that was down to our inexperience at putting up something so large!)
The plasticised roof meant that the rain sounded a little louder than on our Relum, but nothing too bad, it certainly didn't wake either of us during the night.
The kitchen area was a great bonus for us, as we could finally cook inside without falling over everything.
The zips, windows, curtains etc are all of superb quality (and hardly look used)so we are completely in awe of this tent.
Slight downside is that during one of the downpours, the seam between the main roof and the kitchen bit started to leak.Am hoping that now the tent has been used it will be OK if the fabric has swelled a bit.
Other than that, we are extremely chuffed with it. We bought a cheap tarp to use as a groundsheet and it worked fine, so no issues there. This is a seriously good tent which could already be 20 years old, but still has plenty of life in it. For 2 of us it's like a palace!
If you see a good deal for one of these on eBay, preloved or wherever, go for it, you won't regret it.
