1 Reviews of the Carnival 4

By: Former Scout  Reason: I own(ed) one  Made in: 2011   Rating: 

The Aztec Carnival 4 is a simple 2-pole dome tent with a third pole forming a porch entrance which affords the inner tent protection from the rain when entering and exiting and provides a sheltered storage area for boots, etc. Not all tents of this design have windows in the porch and, although not large, they are a welcome inclusion on the Carnival 4.

It is pitched inner-tent first which can be less than ideal if it is raining. The two long poles that form the dome are inserted into pins at each corner of the inner tent and then the inner tent is suspended from the poles by a series of hooks. The flysheet is secured to the poles by a number of ties and there are six fluorescent guy lines (very visible at dusk or in torchlight at night); one at each corner and two pulling the porch pole forward. There is a groundsheet for the porch area.

One problem to look out for when pitching the tent is not to tighten the guys too tightly. If you do this “squashes” the tent, distorting it from the shape it is designed to be in and puts strain on the zip of the door to the inner tent. Because the materials of the inner tent are not exactly premium this can cause damage around the stitching if you are not careful.

Two could spend a few days in this tent quite comfortably with bags, so long as being able to stand up in the tent is not important to you (the height of the inner tent is 130cm); three with bags might not want to stay more than a night or two.

Overall the quality is not great but acceptable. We use ours as a pup tent for a couple of teenagers and it does pack down to a very convenient size indeed. I wouldn’t pay the rrp of £70 but you can easily find it at £50 at which it becomes worthy of consideration.

The Carnival tent range is perfect for a weekend camping. This 4 berth version is the largest in the family and ideal for a small family, or if you’d just like some more room for the two of you! Easy to pitch and with a porch for keeping any wet gear or smelly boots, and storage zip pockets throughout mean you won’t end up rolling on top of something you shouldn’t.
