1 Reviews of the Berkeley 500

By: Oldwolf  Reason: I own(ed) one  Made in: 2014   Rating: 

My soon to be 11 year old daughter wants to have a sleep over with four of her friends. We also have a larger family tent and believe she will soon want a buddy tent of her own. So the tent was bought as a back garden / buddy tent or a weekend away tent with the kids.

For the price I believe this to be a good buddy tent and it has good headroom given the size.

Plenty of ventilation.

Inside the room is light and airy. Usable front porch area - although we have paired it with an adventure tarp.

Easily sleep three adults / five kids.

First impressions are good
