Our second tent - we bought it off eBay and it's great. We have just come back from three nights in Kent and we had loads of space and the tent was rigid in the overnight winds.

The one downside is the weight, the tent and poles takes up about 4 times the space in the car of our old one.

The front door does not zip up all the away around, the bottom of the door is open, this is a real pain if you camp with a dog - ours loves to roam and so we will be sorting out a Velcro strip along the bottom of the door before our next trip.

We bought the Corado 6 in January 2013 as an end-of-line purchase for 249.

We first tested it in the garden as overnight accommodation for overflow guests and realised just how voluminous it is.

Our first outing was to the Le Mans 24hr in June 2013 which has massive campsites. Because of the layout we had to pitch with the porch facing the prevailing wind which wasn't ideal. On the third day (it sounds biblical and the weather was!) the heavens opened for hours on end accompanied by intermittent squalls which are symptomatic of the flat plains in that area.

Amazingly the tent stood up to everything that was thrown at it. Gazebos, toilet tents and numerous flag poles all became airbourne but ours stayed put. We did learn that the fly screens on the side windows aren't waterproof on their own! They need the clear windows rolled down on the outside to achieve this. It isn't immediately obvious when you run in to shelter and don't realise until the floods start!

The only real niggle is the quality of the zips. They are rather flimsy compared with better makes but only really cause concern on the main door which, even when forewarned, is difficult not to overstretch when pitching.

I think for the price we got an absolute bargain. Even if it only survives through this year's trip which first visits Normandy for the D-Day + 70 commemorations and then the following week to Le Mans, we'll be happy.

I'd recommend buying one new except they are now discontinued and a direct replacement hasn't been marketed yet.

This tent is brilliant, we use the sleeping pods to put double airbeds in and still have a little space to get around the edges. Loads of living space available even with accessories set up eg camping wardrobe,table and chairs,3 way fridge etc. The porch was brilliant for setting up the cooker and aqua roll.

Took just under an hour to fully set up with 2 adults and a teenager to help. Tent did not move at all once set up, all nice and solid. Vents work well to help reduce condensation - we left ours open all the time. We have the footprint and carpets which make this unit feel much more comfortable inside, together with the porch extension but we have not had a chance to use that as of yet.

No major problems as of yet and to be honest I don't foresee any in the future either so long as we take care of it properly eg re proofing and making sure its stored dry etc.

Very happy with this tent and have no plans to change it just yet, in fact we are planning next years trip with it - to France!(first time abroad camping for us)

I bought this tent in August as my first tent and replacement for a five berth caravan . After many sleepless nights worrying about pitching we travelled to Helmsley for the bank holiday weekend . We shouldn't have worried , the tent took me and my wife no more than an hour to pitch and set up and this was our first time . The tent is massive , we're a family of four and we had much more space the in our old caravan . The first night we had very heavy rain and strong wind . We got up the following morning expecting the worst but it was bone dry and still stood perfectly . Getting the tent back in the bag was a challenge but I'm sure this will be easier with practice . All in all this tent is fantastic !

Upside !I bought this tent in march 2012 & used it twice at Reighton sands. I was very impressed with it as it stood up to some very strong winds which is renowned for at Reighton. Easy to put up & take down but needs to be rolled very tight to get it back into bag. Loads of room & the canopy great for cooking in when raining, Has plenty of ventilation.

Downside! Some of the stitching is poor especially on the tags where you hook up the bedrooms plus the window curtains could do with more velcro but over all, a nice tent.

Hi, just been away in our new corado 6 tent, its fab, we loved it, also bought the canopy as well and it makes such a difference to the outside area, once up the tent never budged even with some wind and rain, would certainly recommend this tent to anyone, it is huge with lots of space in the living area and bedroom area, best tent we have owned

I recently bought one of these after returning my last two smaller tents. I originally wanted to get an Outwell tent however saw this on sale and thought it was too good to pass up for the price. It is heavy to carry however it is a big tent so it is to be expected. The tent itself is easy to put up it takes me about 20 minutes and I have only put it up 3 times. Inside the tent is very spacious and the built in canopy is a great place to cook and sit if the weather is not too nice. The tent is easy to pack away and stands up to all weather thrown at it, I would highly recommend the Corado 6!

We bought this tent this year as our old dome style tent was getting a bit tired. We first tested it in Wales in June and had full on serious rain. It coped really well with a little bit of leakage over the windows. We have now just returned from 2 weeks in France where it has stood up to some serious heat! It is a fantastic tent and I am really pleased with it. There is so much space as there are only 3 of us and we have room for a table and chairs and a blow up sofa! The bedroom pods are quite spacious too as we can even fit our queensize blow up bed in it (just!) We use the vary spacious porch/built in extension as our kitchen and even when it was pouring I was able to cook in relative dryness and comfort. The tent is very easy to pitch and strike and we have managed to get it back in the bag every time. The only thing that I am not sure about and I need to check out is the guy ropes are tethered with 3 strings and do not seem to stay taught very well. The zips are also a bit cheap and tricky and have a tendancy to catch on the overlaps. You must also make sure that you shut the doors before you peg out the guy ropes. The velcro is all a bit cheaply and shoddily attached too however for the money (300) it is a great tent and I would definitely recommend it.

We took our tent to Gateway Holiday Park in Llanelli with the son and his wife and the two children both under two and they had lots of room to move around once the tent was set up.

I would really recommend this tent to a family and if you don't want use the bedroom divider you could easily fit more in !

One lil hiccup was the entrance door don't secure neatly we applied velcro and it kept the cold air out then . Very spacious otherwise no problems at all !

Cant wait for our next adventure !

We purchased this tent the end of last year. Sent 6 months worrying about erecting it and we put it up within 1/2 hour and we are both over 60 so to us it is fantastic. Simple easy instructions and great size. We had particularly bad wet and windy weather and we slept like babies. No problems whatsoever. Would recommend it to anyone.
