9 Reviews of the Dremmen

By: Carhow69  Reason: I own(ed) one  Made in: 2008   Rating: 

This tent was a great bargain and it was my first tunnel tent, so I loved the design. However the first flaw is that the doors don't close across the bottom, so in heavy rain expect to come home to Hawaii 5 0. Even after mopping up there was water under the bedroom pods when I took it down. I bought sticky back velcro to seal the door bottoms. By it's 3rd outing it leaked like a sieve and needed a tarp to stop complete wash out. At the end of the day I only paid £70 for an 8 man tent and you really do get what you paid for.

This is our first family tent and its amazing and perfect for our needs (2 adults and 2 small children). I bought it off ebay for £120 and it was a bargain. We all sleep in the large bedroom, have one of the smaller bedrooms for clothes and storage and the third bedroom doesn't get put in and we use this area as the 'kitchen'. There's still room then to get in a folding picnic table, 2 chairs and still have plenty of room. It stood up to some strong winds last week - it certainly swayed but withstood it. Some leakage in very heavy rain but all in all a great tent. It takes less than an hour to erect and set up.

We are new to camping, and this looked ideal because of its shear size. We were not wrong. Bought it from ebay, put it up in the garden, first time of trying in about an hour. Took it on its maiden run for the May bank holiday, perfect! Pitch & set up time 1.5 hours Loads of room 2 adults in one pod and the children each had their own area which cuts down on the fights. The living area has enough space for a table & chairs & all the food storage stuff etc. I actually cooked inside the middle area for morning tea & breakfast. Second time out, we were very late arriving 10pm at the campsite & both me and my husband were tired and teasy, not to mention the children. We put the tent up in haste & broke two poles (our fault entirely). Once we re-organised ourselves & took a little more care. We managed to pitch the tent (even with broken poles) & completely unpack / set up in just over an hour, which I thought was pretty good going. I have just been on the tentastic site and you can buy new poles at a relatively low cost - so not too much lost.

I agree with a comment below about the clip on guys. I haven't bought any yet but will do.

All in all I think value for money this tent is excellent.

Bought a Rage Dremmen through Ebay for £89 - and it was a fantastic bargain! Our first tent, and even as novices I found it easy to put up - even managed it on my own (tip - put up the first pole, tie it off to a car wing mirror/sturdy child, then the remainder should stay up as you work your way down the tent). We had 2 adults in large pod, and 1 child in each of the smaller pods - plenty of room for their beds, stuff, clothes, and no fighting at bedtime! Living area is huge - we used a kingsized quilted bedspread as a 'carpet' and it didn't cover the entire floor area. Only downside is partly its size - for lazy campers like us it's a lot of tent to erect/dismantle for one or two nights. However I had our Dremmen up, bedrooms in and car unpacked before a friend had finished wrestling her Khyam dome tent up!

Had a few leaks in very heavy rain - around the base corners where the peg loops are, and found that the short sides of the tent got blown against the back of the bedroom pods and thus leaked, but managed to fix by firstly using tupperware tubs to keep the two fabrics apart (sometimes you have to improvise when camping :-D ), then buying some clip-on guy ropes to pull the tent tighter and away from the inner pods.

Loved this tent, but sadly had to put it away damp last Summer and it hasn't fared well - if anyone knows how to get black mould off tent fabric and out of the seams I'd love to know, before I start the 'best tent for us' search again!

We got our Dremmen after having the side torn from our Halfords tent. The Dremmen is enormous! It's 7m x 3m & we have the large 'double' bedroom pod at one end & then use one of the 'single' bedroom pods at the other end for storage / walk in wardrobe.

This gives us a very large 'L Shape' living space, so plenty of room for a couple of tables, four chairs, a small wardrobe & the cooking kit! We may even squeeze the bikes in there this summer!

I had heard some horror stories about Tentastic & Rage tents in general, but it does the job we need it to do.

Just a quick thought though, because of it's size there are some sites that won't let you on. 7m is a loooong tent without any canopies or extensions & if the sites pitches are only 6m x 6m, then you're stuck!

As there are only two of us (at present ;-) ) in the tent, then we have acres of room!

Overall I'd say don't believe everything you hear about these tents, give it a try & decide for yourself!

We have one of these tents and have found it to be brilliant. We have used ours time and time again in all weathers and it has faired very well. Unfortunately as we have used the tent so much we need to get the seals re-waterproofed this year. The sewn in groundsheet is a must and there is plenty of space for all of the camping gear. Excellent would definitely recommend this tent.

Wow! What can I say? This tent is magical! We went from a two berth tent to an 8 because we wanted the room.

We looked at LOADS of tents and trying to find one was proving very difficult.

We found this tent and it was perfect, nice and tall at around 7ft high, nice and long at 23ft and to finish it all off it's about 9ft wide.

Plenty of room to move about, having the ground sheet sewn in is an absolute god send and keeps the inside nice and dry.

Being a 'newbie' to tent ownership I looked at many tent reviews before settling for a Dremmen. I wanted a reasonably priced tent that was well built and spacious.

This I found in the 8 person Dremmen, its huge inside! and being a tunnel shape the headroom is fine end to end for even the tallest person to change and dress in.

With the bedroom pods up there is still plenty of daytime space, it's green and white colour gives it a light and airy feel even on a dull day, the only drawback being that the bedroom pods are white all over and so let a lot of early morning light in which is not so good if you require a lie in, personally I would have preferred them to be made of the black mesh that is on the pod doors.

We had a couple of light showers whilst out and about, but the tent stood up well to these even only being a 2000dpi, the only part that leaked was the triangular material that holds the tent pegs around the base of the tent,I have since re proofed these and await some more rain to test them out. The sewn in groundsheet is a boon, particularly if you have an inquisitive dog who may be able to undermine a separate groundsheet!

Time to put the tent up has dropped from 1 hour to half an hour for two of us with practice, there only being 5 poles helps enormously. I invested in a set of screw in pegs which have held the tent securely even in quite fierce winds, the only downside being that the tent fabric is quite noisy when being blown about, (as oppose to a canvas which is reasonably quiet in comparison).

In conclusion, a great family sized tent for spring and summer use, easy to erect, reasonably strong and weatherproof, a good starter tent for beginners which, with care should last a good many seasons and keenly priced too.

We loved this big tent, around 7 feet high all over not just in the middle, 23ish feet long and about 9 feet wide, one 4 berth pod with 2 pods for 2 people, we used the one big bedroom for a kingsized and double blow up bed and 2 adults and 2 kids slept in it, the other pods were used for toilet and changing storage room so leaving the giant living area for living in.

Staight upright on our windy site while others floundered around us, kept us dry too.

2 small windows (I wanted more views out so got trailer tent now) 2 doors which can be held up with poles to let in air or more light. Light grey and dark grey so airy feel inside not claustrophobic at all.

Insect mesh and privacy covers on all pods, insect nets on all opening vents, all round an excellent buy.
