I've now used this tent for five long weekends. I wanted to post a review after the first trip, but the weather was great so didn't feel that I could. Today we came home after the fifth trip, a real test for the Weathermaster, heavy rain and not gale force but strong winds. After two nights of this we never had a drop of water inside, or felt any threat from the weather.

To erect the tent is a piece of cake and two people can do this fully pegged in well under an hour.

The living area is huge with four full length mesh doors and the front opening(full width). This allows both air and light into the tent. Speaking of air, the vents at the rear and above the two hooded side doors keep condensation to a minimum.

The three bedrooms have just enough room for a double airbed or two singles(larger beds may struggle to fit). The storage area at the rear is a great use of space and lots of pockets around the tent are always useful.

Every time we open it up we seem to find something new that we didn't notice before.

It is a very large tent both up and down, my first thought on seeing it delivered was that I need a bigger car. One set of roof bars and a roof box later and I have to say that all the family love this tent and I would recommend it to anyone in the market for a large family tent that will stand up to the British weather.

Bought this tent last year. A little heavy, it was so easy to put up and what a lot of room. I feel that it is the rolls royce of tents, and what's more my teenage kids love it, which says it all! It is very sturdy, and love the mesh on the doors. Would certainly recommend this tent to anyone

Recently purchased this tent and used it for our two week trip to Cornwall. We were amazed at how easy it was to put up seeing as we'd never used it before and we were pitching in the wind and rain!

Once up, this tent is very sturdy. The 3 bedrooms are just big enough for a double sized airbed and the two outer ones have a large window too. The middle one gives access to the storage area at the back of the tent which is a very clever use of space. The living area is very spacious with lots of windows. I love that there are so many doors to open and that there are mesh screens on all of them.

I agree with Fiona66 about the anchor points. Not sure why they are there really and also about the zip on the front door. It just took that bit longer to close in a hurry when the rain decided to come pouring down unannounced. A continuous zip would have been better.

The tent is easy to take down and went back into it's bag fairly easily. As stated previously, the poles are quite heavy and the bag quite bulky.

One other slight criticism is that when it rains particularly heavy and for a long period of time, we found that there were a few drips that came through but nothing major. Overall, us and our equipment were kept very dry.

This tent is great and highly recommended.

I have the 2007 version. Love it! Its so big and the mesh screens are a huge bonus. The best things are how steardy it is and how quickly two people and set it up or take it down. It is heavy, well the poles are, not the tent. We don't use the inner tent sections. We leave it all open! Best tent eva!

Bought this for long stay holidays mostly on the continent. Many plus points - lots of doors (to fully open or with mesh only (bugs!), extra storage at rear though - they should have put zips at the rear of all pods not just the centre one. Pods can be taken down individually for more room if not being used. Solid and doesn't more in the wind. Hasn't leaked even in thunder storms.
Very roomy living area. Downsides are skylight can sag with heavy rain if its soft from the sun in hot countries; anchor points in floor are a bit annoying as they are not really necessary; zip at front door is not continuous - there are 2 vertical and one horizontal - bit awkward after a few vinos! Somewhat heavy but you know its sturdy so not a huge problem - not a backpacking tent! Overall a great tent and roomy for growing family.
