9 Reviews of the Nimbus II

By: Dumfriescampers  Reason: I own(ed) one  Made in: 2012   Rating: 

We have a family of 6 and have used this tent on a number of occasions, wet and dry with extra people too, so suffice to say that there is plenty of room! The central area is a great living space and the door can be moved to the outside or inside to use as a porch, which is ideal for muddy shoes etc. The only downside is the lack of integral groundsheet but not a major setback really. We have found it to be waterproof and practical for our family.

Huge tent. Managed to fit in my family of 6 easily plus all the extras we took. The ground sheets are a little small but we have bought a larger one from ebay. Also as stated before in a previous review we had a problem with the seams leaking at the roof windows but father in law has sealed these for us. Great value for money.

Bought this tent as a family member owned a trailer tent and didn't use it. Needed a bigger size tent as we are a big family and it is amazing. There is plenty of space and no one felt cramped. Easy to put up due to colour coded poles and plenty of room in the middle for a big table and chairs, as well as any electric cooking facilities and anything else you may have.

An extremely spacious tent. I can stand up in most of the tent. Loads of communal space for cooking, relaxing and sheltering from the weather. Instructions not the best but once thought about was not too difficult to put up. Ground sheet in Central area needs some way to peg it down. We added our own eyelets, otherwise a super investment for family holidays.

A virgin camper, I borrowed a tent last year to do a 3 day trip. Then bought this tent in the spring with a view to doing some camping this year. I did want a big tent as there are 5 of us. I was really impressed with how easy it was to put up, we did a dry run and put it up and down in just over an hour with some help from the 10year old (and some hindrance from the other 2). We were really lucky to choose the first week of the summer holidays to camp at a lovely site in Dorset, it was dry all week so I cant tell you how waterproof it is but the space inside is great and it fits easily into the large bag provided (if you don't want to put the tent poles in too) which is a bonus.

We bought this tent due to the amount of headroom it offered as both myself and my wife are over six feet tall. This tent is huge and very sturdy, it is fairly easy to put up it takes me and my wife about 40 minutes but this also includes chasing round after two small children! the living area is massive plenty big enough for four adults and two kids to sit around a table in the evening or if the weather takes a turn for the worse without being sat in each others laps, my only gripe and it is the stitching on the doors is starting to tear but once this is fixed it will be business as usual would definitely recommend this tent to others.

Bought this tent as old one was too small for our family (two adult and three children). This tent is HUGE. Living area is large enough for kitchen, dining table and extra chairs. We could actually fit our mpv inside. Main bedroom was split into two and had room for double bed in one half and storage/changing room in other. Kids had other two bedrooms, each with more than enough space for double airbeds. Only gripe would be slight leak in the seams of the, completely pointless, roof windows due to water pooling on the roof, but to be fair, rain was torrential. Woeful lack of instructions made for interesting first time pitching, but once you've sussed it, colour coded poles make it easy. We pitched with just the two adults. Overall an excellent buy and this '12 man' tent could probably sleep between 17 and 20 at a push.

We bought this tent to accommodate the four of us (2adults, 2 children) and our dog. Very spacious inside, we have the big bedroom at the back which easily holds an aerobed (double airbed) and wardrobe with space still for the dog bed and to get changed. The children both have a side room each with fold out campbeds and plenty of space for their clothes. Living area inside is huge, which is ideal if it rains as there is plenty of room to fit in a table and chairs to play cards.

The second time we used it, a seam ripped whilst we were pegging it in which was annoying, but I've since stitched it up and its fine now.

Easy to erect with 4 people all holding up a side each. Would definitely recommend to a family.

Recently bought this tent as our old one was getting on a bit. This tent is HUGE and has plenty of room for at least 10 people. We put it up and took it down in near gale force winds, it rained and was sunny and had absolutely no problems what so ever. It was however a bit of a pig to put up the first time round - 1.5 hrs - with just the 2 of us doing it. It took us a while to get the layout right but once you get it right it was fine. Hoping to half the amount of erection time next time we go. Would recommend
