6 Reviews of the Albury 8

By: N88dle  Reason: I own(ed) one  Made in: 2009   Rating: 

Recently bought this tent in the sale 160 as it's an older model. Wanted to upgrade to a bigger tent with a SIG and love the space with this tent. There is only 3 of us (with another little one on the way though) and my husband thinks it's too big for us, I disagree!

Plenty of room in the bedroom pods and handy storage pockets. Fairly easy to put up, took us around 45-60 mins but this was the first time so I'm sure we'll get quicker than this. Also easy enough to get back in the bag.

The weather was great so can't comment on how it holds up in adverse conditions but it feels pretty sturdy. Really happy with our purchase.

I love this tent. Loads of room in the living area and bedrooms. There are 4 adults and 2 teenagers plus 2 dogs! Each bedroom is big enough for a double bed with space for bags, etc. Due to a back problem I have to use a special bed which is Kingsize and this fits great too. We have camped in strong winds and heavy rain and have had no leaks or other problems. The tent is easy to put up and only takes 30 mins or so.

I would recommend this to anyone.

This is a excellent tent even better when you add the Horizion porch,this porch fits perfect and gives you so much more room. The tent has a double skin which keeps you nice and warm, and is so easy to put up. We too bought the tent at Trago Mills. The Horizion porch can be bought from Family camping supplies for 82.50.(see photo's)

Easy to put up, took a battering from the wind 30-40mph winds still stayed up just had to readjust guy ropes, very happy with tent.

Roomy (family of 5!) would recommend! Fits into bag very easily, separate compartments.

Up in about 1hr(in wind), no leaks from rain, very warm, handy sunroof, storage compartments ,(great for kids toys etc)

Excellent tent for the price, 175. Trago mills in Newton Abbot, Devon. Went on our first camping holiday, chucked it down & blew a hooooly nearly all week, tent did us proud, just need to get a porch and a carpet for it now as I am using it again in couple of weeks. Takes about 15-20mins to put up (providing the wind is in your favour) Also easier to have a extra pair of hands.

Our first trip in the tent - WOW!

Easily assembled, able to put it up with a little help as it was first time. Large inner dome that can sit six chairs comfortable. Rooms comfortable and love the built in storage pockets in both bedrooms and the main area. Through the rain it stayed dry, the wind was no problem as it has two skins - very very warm!

Good to put away with excellent carry case - and it fits back into the bag!

Would easily recommend this tent to anyone who want two large bedrooms and a good size living area.
