7 Reviews of the Scenic 6.2

By: Mphigham  Reason: I own(ed) one  Made in: 2006   Rating: 

We have had this tent now for 8 yrs and it is still going strong. I would hate to replace it as I have never seen anything like it in another tent. It has a huge living area which I have had 15 people sat down in during a torrential downpour a couple of yrs ago. It does take a while to put up but it`s worth it. It has very strong steel poles which serve the tent very well in strong winds, in fact it never moves at all. I was surprised they stopped making this tent so soon after launch as in my opinion it`s the best tent ever made.

We have had this tent for 6 years now, and it is great. It is absolutely enormous and has often provided shelter from rain for family and friends. I think the most people we have had sitting around tables eating is about 16, but there was still room!

We use the bedroom as one big space with 2 double mattresses and plenty of room for bags and toys. You can easily set up a kitchen and cook in the tent thanks to the opening doors with flyscreens.

There are plenty of doors and the vents allow air in to the bedroom - or close them to make it darker. Although the material is dark this is a very light tent because of the massive windows and skylight.

Takes a while to get it fully set up or packed away, but isn't difficult.

Very good value compared to all the other large tents we saw.

Just an update on my previous posting. I have now fully tested the tent and have to give it 10 out of 10 - absolutely amazing. They don't make this tent any more but I still managed to pick one up brand new for 75! My wife and I got it set up from start to finish in about 50 minutes.

The tent is truly massive inside, with the living area a pleasure to spend time in. All 5 doors and window sections can be opened up to create a huge shaded, breezy living area/gazebo. The sleeping compartment can used as one huge sleeping area. Although we used 1 of the 2 dividers provided to use 2/3rds as a sleeping compartment and a 1/3rd as storage to keep the tent nice and tidy. Another really nice touch are the rear vents and windows. Fully adjustable you can choose to have the rear windows covered and vented or vented with the window opened. - see bedroom picture provided.

We had some showers during our stay and the tent dealt with them fantastically. The material feels really thick and high quality and because the living area is so big you don't feel couped up.

The tent is a real head-turner and we had several very complimentary comments from those around us. 10 out of 10!

Have just bought this discontinued tent for 75 brand new. For the price, amazing tent. Only put up so far but not yet used. Initial thoughts are that photos do not do tent any justice or give a sense of scale, it is very large. Great sturdy poles and high quality materials used. 45 mins to erect first time, it will get quicker though. Be aware there are 2 versions of this tent, I don't know which I have but there is no window on the very front panel and the bedroom has 2 dividers. This means the bedroom can be configured into 3 doubles, 2 triples or 1 huge bedroom. The poles sleeves, door zip cover and bedroom inner panels are black not yellow as most pictures show on my version. Really happy. I have a long weekend and weeks trip to Wales planned for May and July 10' will provide more info when it is tested in anger :-)

Gave 8 out of 10 because it hasn't been properly tested yet and was disappointed my version doesn't come with a window on the foremost panel.

Just an update really.

Took this tent away in storms and it stood up to them no problem even though it is very tall.

Having worked out how to lay our the poles, we have also sussed the footprint groundsheet and so now it only takes us about 20 mins to pitch - the secret is to lay the groundsheet out roughly and peg it at the two furthest points next to the doors. Then put the inner tents in so that you can locate the hole in the middle for the peg. THEN peg the rest of the groundsheet.

Previously we were trying to fit the groundsheet before we put the inners in, at which point we would realise the pegging point was in the wrong place and have to start again.

I will be very sad if this tent isn't usable next year as we love it now, and haven't seen anything comparable.

Another update. Please to say this tent is still going strong!

Just stood up to another week in wet and windy Cornwall, yes it shook, but it stayed firm, no leaks. Its been ripped and patched now where DH tripped out a door, but we still can't see any reason to replace it - and can't find anything we would want to replace it with which is more worrying.

The living area comes into its own on wet holidays - plenty of room for table, stools, cooker, larder cupboard and four people to sit comfortably in directors chairs!

We have just come back from a weekend away using this tent, bought it last year and never got away until now.

We had rain and severe wind last night and this tent stood up to it no problem at all.Was thinking it might be difficult to take down in the win but its not.Me, my wife and our son got it up and down with no great problems.Yes the poles are heavy but I believe if they had been carbon then the winds last night would have broken them.

It will be getting a lot more use in the future, as has been said the amount of room you have is amazing.Especially if like us there are only 3 of you.Full height is excellent as I hate getting a cricked neck haha.

Not a lot else to say except if you have the chance buy/try one you will be amazed at its usefulness.

Happy camping.

This was the first 'family tent' we bought and we have been extremely pleased with it.

Chosen mainly for 3-week holidays in France it was perfect.

The poles are steel and very strong - but this also makes it very heavy - if you don't lay the poles correctly in the first place its really hard work to rearrange them. The being said once you know that its a doddle to pitch the fly.

It has a seperate footprint groundsheet - and this is the bit that takes the time because of the strange shape of the tent.

The inners are a great size for a family of 4 - wouldn't really be comfy for 6.

It has a huge living area, and I love that it has doors on both sides and at the front - totally flexible which way you pitch it on a site and it opens up like a gazebo when its hot. The windows are huge as well which makes it pleasant to be in when its raining.

The other great thing is the height - it is full height in both the living area and the bedrooms.

I think the only things that could improve this tent would be lighter-weight poles and a bucket groundsheet (zip in would be fantastic).

We have just bought a slightly smaller more light-weight tent for weekends - hoping it will be quicker to pitch, but already wishing we had the bedroom layout of this one.
