4 Reviews of the Bodo 4

By: Ellectrastar  Reason: I own(ed) one  Made in: 2008   Rating: 

This was our second tent—after one night’s experience with two people in a small two-person tent we decided to go for something a bit more spacious! This is a tunnel tent with three semi-circular poles giving a good-sized sleeping space (for two, a bit of a squash for four) and a smaller, living area at the front. You can’t really stand up in the living area but you can get a couple of chairs in when it gets chilly, as long as you keep your head ducked down! It has the option to roll the front up or open the side door. Inner chamber has a SIG and a separate groundsheet is provided for the living space.

Our first trip was to Weymouth, pitched in a fairly open position, facing the sea. From what I remember the instructions were not at all helpful, they blew away on this first trip but it wasn’t much of a loss. Once you figure out how to do it it’s pretty simple, but wouldn’t want to try it on my own.

Two main problems we had are:

*It’s not very sturdy. We always need a sheltered position, protected from wind to prevent it from blowing about. There don’t seem to be enough guy lines to keep the tent stable when the wind’s up so we usually have to attach spares to the outside frame to try and steady it.

*The colour! It’s silver/grey, so in the summer when the sun comes up early it beams through and lights up the whole place.

Not had a problem with rain getting in although condensation does come through in the mornings and obviously can’t touch the sides when it’s wet. I would say we have used this approximately twenty times, for one or two nights a time, and the seams and attachments from bedroom chamber to fly-sheet are showing signs of strain.

Other than that it’s not too bad. Not great, but not awful. I wouldn’t buy it again though. Not used for long periods at a time so has done us for what we need. We are looking to buy something a little better quality now, a little more sturdy and a darker colour!

I have only used this tent for 2 nights and in dryish weather in August.

I'm not sure whether I should have waterproofed it 1st but the dew of the morning did drip through if fly sheet touched.

The porch area is a good size for two people and so is the sleeping compartment. There are 4 internal pockets in the sleeping area which were useful for holding torches and scrunchies.

Was very easy to erect on my own and with no previous experience of erecting tents. Was light and airy but not a lot room to stand up.

Overall a good tent for short stays.

In bad wind two out of the three poles broke. We were on a camp site in Wales on the cliffs in August. They did replace the poles but at 03:00 my girlfriend could not care less about company after care just that the tent was about to fall down (it would have done if I did not tie it to the fence and the car boot!)

Have this tent for scout camps, took this one to Essex Jamboree, admit was alone, but had camp bed- plenty of room including storage to all the needs of the leaders. Have slept two- both on beds with ample space. Not sure about using for a family holiday as not much living space if this is your only shelter (we normally have a mess tent) East to erect- can do it on my own

Overall a good buy
