1 Reviews of the Bergen 4
By: Trance-Elbow Reason: I own(ed) one Made in: 2008 Rating: Date: 25/08/2010
We bought this tent new from an eBay seller about 2 years ago for £60, which was a bargain. We've used it several times since and generally it's quite good considering the price.
On our first trip we attempted to pitch it in a howling gale & horizontal driving rain. The 2 of us looked like complete amateurs (which we are not) and we couldn't hold it up to peg it out. Fortunately the other campers came to our rescue. It took 6 people to hold up while I pegged. Once up the fly sheet didn't let a drop of water through and it stood up very well to the high winds. The centre section measures 2400mm x 2000mm, which is enough room for a table, 3 chairs, coolbox, small table, stove and 907 gas bottle. The centre section is high enough to allow me to stand up unhindered (I'm 5' 8'). Each bedroom sleeps 2, but a double airbed is a bit of a squeeze. It only has one door which can be rolled up or used as a porch with supplied poles. At the back there is a window, which rolls up from the outside. It all fits into an over size bag, which makes packing away really easy as there's no need to keep refolding until it goes in.
The only problem we did have was that the centre section at the back doesn't have any pegging points, which means that driving rain does come in. The same is true of the door at the front. But the bedrooms stayed dry.
On subsequent trips the rain has still got under the front & back, so we've changed it for a tent with a full sewn in ground sheet.
In conclusion - You need at least 2 people to pitch the tent & more people if there's anything more that a light breeze. Having done it several times we can get it up & pegged out in about 15 minutes. You get what you pay for and at £60 it was well worth if you don't mind the odd bit of water under the back & door.

The Rage Bergen 4 is the perfect tent for small families or for 2 couples to get away together. As with other tents in the Rage Bergen range, the tent features a vis a vis sleeping arrangement. Each bedroom pod which has a sewn in groundsheet will accomodate one of our double airbeds. In addition to this, the living area provides 2m x 2.4m of space for storage and maximum head height of 185cm (6ft).The new 2010 Rage Bergen 4 features increased waterproofing to 3000mm HH which is more than ample to keep you dry in the good old British weather! The good people at Rage have also colour coded the poles for the 2010 season, which when combined with the fully comprehensive instructions, makes erection even simpler!
