We bought this model of TT in March 2019, a used model. We were warned that part of the bedroom frame would need mending - true. It was the bit holding up the peak of the canopy which had broken at the hinge pin. Which bright spark decided to put a hinge pin through a thinwall tube within 4mm of the end ? Got that sorted and used on two outings, first a weekend then a ten day holiday on Exmoor.
Tent is easier to erect than our old Sunncamp, less poles for starters and I like the hoop arrangement with sidebars. Only warning for others is that the awnings are Heavy Canvas (so should last for years) but can be a bit unwieldly.
Two other things we found - firstly an arch arrangement means lost space between the cooker and the sidewall. We just put a tray under the cooker which was slid up against the wall and held pots etc. Secondly was when it rains for a while, if you are on uneven ground so the floor has a dip in the middle you get a big puddle inside the tent where the water comes in via the holes for the 'hoop' poles (they have spikes which locate in those holes)- anyone got any ideas on this problem ?
Apart from those small niggles we found the tent good for our holidays - hopefully many more of them.
