6 Reviews of the Commanche 8

Hi, owned this tent for a few years but with expanding family looking to expand this amazing tent and would like to know what side canopy will fit like the one in the pictures.

This is a great family tent just we require a little more room for our long camping trips. We have used it several times and it has never let us down still as waterproof as when we first used it

This is only my second tent, (first being a Vango, the poles snapped on first use of it).

As newby campers and tent put-er-uppers, I am surprised at the ease of putting up this one. It is sturdy and very good quality. There is plenty of room inside, two good sized windows and plenty of ventilation. I liked the way you can either have two big bedrooms or split them up into four. We have looked into more newer designed tents and nothing matches to the quality or simple design.

This is a good all rounder, holds up well in windy and wet conditions, you don't feel to enclosed if you need to shut yourself inside it, even with kids an dog!

We have used this tent for the last 2 yrs, and have never had a problem apart from 1 broken pole (but that was probably our fault!). It provides plenty of room for storage of camping gear and plenty of height too. It is easy to erect and is very stable in all weathers. One improvement would be to have more storage pockets other than those in the bedrooms

I bought this as an emergency and have not parted with it for 2 summers! I can erect it by myself (i am female!) in about 20 minutes with ease. It has withstood torrential rain and very strong winds on several occasions. The only downfall is the bathtub groundsheet instead of a sewn in. Plenty of room for a family and space for storage.

We recently bought one that was a 'sample' for 130.00. After owning a canvas frame tent which took hours to erect, I can safely say that this tent offers the height, which my husband needs, the ease of erecting and withstood some very horrid rain and wind in May 08. We didn't have any problems putting it back and the instructions were fab. Our children 1 & 4 loved it too.

It's close to the ground and offers such a big living area that you can stow all of your stuff in whilst daytripping.

Bought as an emergency replacement tent, so not our first choice. But we are impressed with the quality of this tent. It would benefit from a SIG rather than bathtub one but it got us through torrential rain and extremely windy weather amazingly. Not a leak in sight.
It is well ventilated and is very light. The living area is not as big as I'd like but it is generous still. Easy enough to put up too. Lay the flysheet out, put the poles in, peg one end and pull, piece of cake!
We lay tarpaulins down before putting the bedrooms and groundsheet in to help protect them and we even got it back into the bag at the end of our 2nd trip with it!

Manufacturer's Description

A very classy 8-berth vis--vis style tunnel tent - this is the 2006 model which has not been changed at all for the 2007 season (colour options apart) - regarded as one of the best options on the market. The look and the styling of the tent plus the way it sits exceptionally close to the ground (like a sheepdog) make an immediate favourable impression.

The two 4-berth bedroom (with divider) sit either side of a large (9m2) living area which has 2 entrances from it plus two 3-way windows to keep the interior light and airy. There is also a third door situated behind one of the bedroom inners to give that extra flexibility.

Other features include flysheet first pitching; Protex 200 durable polyester flysheet, fully taped seams; double doors on inner tents; bathtub groundsheets in the inners; riser (draft excluder) groundsheet to the living area; multiple vent points; heavy duty pole sleeves; fibreglass poles (plus two steel porch poles); Carry bag and repair kit.
