4 Reviews of the Vardo 8

By: Family Brett  Reason: I own(ed) one  Made in: 2007   Rating: 

Bought second hand and it had only been used for 3 or 4 nights so still in excellent condition. Have used in Scotland in VERY windy conditions and have just returned from a very blustery weekend nr Oxford - I was up at 0400 because of the wind, but the tent was fantastic, it didn't move an inch (unlike the gazebo!), so am more than happy with its performance. As stated, it is very versatile and goes up exceptionally quickly, but if you are going to use only one pod, then the ground sheet will not cover the entire usable space. Would highly recommend.

A very roomy tent and easy to erect, we have it up in 10 minutes. Above average stand up height makes it very good for taller persons. I bought it for under 80 from ebay in 2008 and was happy with that. Downside since purchase, poles are flimsy and bend too easy , would not want to use in very windy weather. Big clear windows at front need curtains like newer tents have, larger groundsheet would be better to cover window area of ground

Great big tent. Easy to erect. Has 3 inner compartments you can fit, you get 2 x 5 person berths and a 2 person berth. We use one 5 person berth, this gives up a mega space to store stuff or put up our table for dinner if the weather is bad. I would recommend this tent.

I got mine from ebay for under 100, a bargain to say the least. It states this is a 8 berth tent, but it will fit 10 people (storage might be a bit tight. If something happened to this tent, I would go and buy another.

We have used this tent a good few time without problems. I dont know how it would fair under windy conditions, bit I have had a few other big tents that the pole have snapped in the wind.

Looks like a nice tent and was very cheap, however, it only survived 1 night in the wind and rain! The metal poles are very weak and therefore buckled and snapped. Lots of room inside the tent and would probably be ok if conditions were perfect, something you will rarely get in the uk!
