Like Hairywol there are only two of us in our Colorado 5. The larger of the two bedrooms is the one we use and the other is used as a dressing room / storage area.

Excellent head room throughout the tent and the living area is an excellent size. Lots of room for a large table and chairs without having to move them for access to the bedrooms. Vents all around the tent keep it free from condensation. The lighter coloured roof helps keep it feeling light and airy.

We are 4 season campers and this tent has stood up to all that was thrown at it.

Very easy to erect and has everything that is needed in a good quality tent. Two doors (one at the side and one at the front) allow flexibility in pitching. Mosquito nets to the side door is great for hot days. Storage pouches in the living area and bedrooms are handy.

The front of the tent zips off completely to allow the full living area to become an ‘awning’ and it can also be zipped in to make the living area smaller.

We have looked at other tents since we purchased this one, but have found none to beat it in price and quality.

The 'stuff sack' bag means that you don't spend hours folding and squeezing it into the bag.

My wife and I use this tent on extended camping breaks of up to 3 weeks, in the UK and across Europe. It is roomy, uses its space very well and has good height in all areas including bedrooms.

The tent is well made and has stood up to some filthy weather without complaint (5000mm HH). Of course being a tunnel design means taking care to peg it out properly, especially front and rear. Once that's done though, no worries.

The Colorado has an advantage over other tunnel designs because of its straight metal side poles. This gives more headroom further away from the tent's centre line than designs whose curved sides look more like a semicircle. The vertical front of the tent too means usable height and space right to the corners.

And full marks too for the large windows (with curtains) that make it seem even bigger when taking refuge on rainy days.

I get bored with tents and start to crave something new every two years. Not with this though. Have looked again at new tents and see nothing to match it.

Brilliant space for two or three, four or five people though would need to be good friends if they all wanted in the bedrooms. But that's the way of all tents.
