I absolutely love this tent! We bought it for cost reasons originally because we were after a big tent with lots of space and it was one of the few we could afford. I thought a tunnel tent would be a bit boring but not a bit of it! So many friends with impressive looking tents envy us ours because of the HUGE amount of space we have. The central living area is big enough for our family of six to relax in and chill out - our children are older now and have their own tents to sleep in but ours provides the main family area. Therefore we use the big inner room as our bedroom - big enough for a queen size Intex blow up bed - and the two smaller side rooms are dressing room and family store room. All the rooms are high enough to stand up in - really important - all in all, this tent provides a brilliant home from home. This year we have bought the canopy extension which I am really looking forward to trying out in a week's time, but even without that extra space this is by far the best tent we have owned. Would recommend it to all for whom space is a major consideration. Only slight downside, the bottom of the zip doors let water in slightly so it pools inside, but that has been easily fixed by adding a bit of velcro. Very easy to put up - I have done it on my own once, but with two of us it's a doddle! This is our fourth year and we have never once regretted buying it. Highly recommended.

This is a brilliant family tent for the 6 of us. Well priced, easy to pitch and it doesn't take too much space when packed. This will be our 4th season; nothing has broken and we've no desire to change it.

Using it to sleep 6 leaves a nice big storage bay which is a useful addendum to the big central living space which you can easily stand in.

We bought the Verano canopy which is a nice addition. It provides a sheltered and well ventilated cooking area, as well as extra storage and an area for the kids to kick off wet boots (or not!)

Just remember to tell campsites you need 10m to pitch and all will go well for you!

We bought this tent mainly as we wanted a large living area for possible wet days and also my hubby is 6'4 and needs plenty of head room, but WOW, it is really spacious and then some! With 1 large 4 man bedroom and 2 doubles there is bags of room to put everyone. Initially we only had 3 rooms up as we used one of the doubles as storage and the other for us and the 2 kids but we had to move my Brother, Sister-in-Law and Neice in as unfortunately their tent had started to leak but there was plenty of room in the central living area for all of us.

So easy to put up with the colour coded poles and easy to put back in the tent bag after. It withstood high winds and heavy rain no problem.

Is very cosy with the sewn in groundsheet no nasty draughts, providing you pulled the velcro very tight at the base of the door.

Overall, this is a fabulous tent with bags & bags of space, easy to put up and take down and would highly recommend to anyone!

Cant wait for the next outing! :)

I love this tent its fab fits all our requirements/ticks all our boxes and at 194.99 from United British Caravans it was an absolute steel.

Pitching was so easy (honestly) all colour coded poles etc and with just five to do it was fabulous, we hadn't used the pin and ring system before but got the just of it really quickly.

I have gave this tent 9/10 solely cause I think there is always room for improvement and that there isn't a ehu point of access on both sides thats all :)

We have two kids that come with us a girl aged 15 and boy aged 13 also two dogs so we wanted them to have a pod each and room for the dogs and there crates too.

Our previous tent wasn't a SIG and it was really nice to have it in this tent especially with the dogs gave us extra security plus for things getting in too - a dog frequently escaped from its tent on the site we were at a couple of weeks ago.

We had no bother getting the tent back into its bag either found that folding it longways in on itself several times and rolling it and leaving the door slightly open to allow for the air to escape worked really well.

I would recommend this tent to anyone wanting plenty of space cause theirs bags of it and its extremely versatile giving you lots of options for sleeping arrangement and storage.

Hi we brought this tent in May this year, and have just finished our fourth camping trip away in it, and what can I say apart from OMG what a tent. This is perfect in every way for our family of four. It is easy to erect only taking two of us about 30 minutes to put up, the next four hours is sorting out the rest of the crap we take with us.

The living area is well large enough, and the good thing is, the two separate bedrooms are both the same size, so the kids don't fight over who has the largest bedroom, we do, because we have the larger bedroom at the other end. Having the eyebrow over one of the doors, lets you have the door open when there is light rain.

Also having the verano DL canopy makes a huge difference, as this is used as the kitchen area, so we can have the sunncamp inflatable sofa and two chairs, in the living area to watch TV when the weather turns for the worst.

I would recommend this tent to anyone, for a family of four and it is well priced, we paid 239, but I know you can find it cheaper.

We have added some photo's please see.

Bought this tent last year and have used it 4 times. Easy to erect and dismantle my husband can even do it himself. Large living area with plenty of height my husband 6'4'' and can stand up in the bedrooms. We use one bedroom as storage which keeps tent tidy. Kids fit easily into one room and so far don't mind sharing. My husband and I use the big room but have also had all four of us in there easily. Really happy with purchase.

We bought this tent just a couple of months ago and have used it twice so far. We find it roomy and versatile - you don't have to put all the bedrooms up if you don't want them, but even if you do there's still plenty of room in the central living area. It's not too heavy, and very easy to erect and dismantle.

The only snag we've found is that the doors have no zip at the bottom and if it's windy you can get a draught. We've rectified this by attaching velcro along the bottom edge of the door. Also an EHU cable entry on each side of the tent would be useful - it only has one.

We bought this as our first tent as it offers a large bedroom where we can sleep with our kids (aged 1 and 5). We've been away twice with it and so far, so good. It's easy to put up and is very spacious. We particularly like the height as you can easily stand up in it (my husband's 6ft 4 and there's plenty of room for him). There's loads of room for storage and a decent living area - overall, we're very happy with it and it only cost 199.99

We purchased this tent in June 2008, and are most impressed with it. We looked at so many tents but this one hit all the right buttons. There is just 2 of us and our dog, and we just felt we needed plenty of room for all the items in the tent. Would recommend this tent to anyone, easy to erect easier to dismantle, there is a draft from both doors, but we are going to fit Velcro to cure this matter

This is our first tent and we found it easy to put up as it has 5 colour coded poles and the design is really straight forward. It is very spacious with three large rooms which can be altered to make four with a curtain hung in the middle of the larger room. The living area is ample which is a god send when the rain falls and we are all in the tent together. The only criticism we have is the doors do not zip up at the bottom which makes it a bit draughty. As we are new to camping we are not sure if this is normal in tents. All in all we are very happy with our shadow and would recommend it as a family tent.
