A great sized tent with three pods. As a couple we never used the middle pod. Just the space for the kitchen and food. We then slept in one side pod and used the other for clothes etc. We also fit two mountain bikes in with us, no worries. Now we have a toddler the bikes are at home and she is in one pod. We have the other and still lots of space, too much really for a weekend. If it's wet in the morning, like when we dropped it last week post a frost, then there is a lot of canvas to pitch at home to try and dry.

We've upgraded it with a footprint to try and save the groundsheets, they are almost starting to age but not leaking yet. Only leaks have been when we've tensioned it badly and it has run off the fly onto the groundsheet. A sewn in groundsheet would be nice but when Pitched properly the groundsheet extends six inch or more up into the fly making it sealed.

You struggle to use an air bed in the pods as the extra height means the person on the edge gets a mouthful of inner tent but with a thermarest it's fine.

I like the Vango quality, the mechanics of the tent and despite needing to replace some shattered poles now, it's doing really well.

Very spacious and easy to put up once you've done it once or twice. Optional porch extension is very useful in that you can cook under it when wet. We've had a fair few issues with the build quality, but toggles coming off and fabric being ripped near zips which is disappointing, but it the outer is pretty sturdy and has stood up well. Pods could be bigger but OK.

Bought a second hand one and used it for the first time this week. Good points - Large and spacious, the bedrooms comfortably fit two adults with space still to put a small holdall, the main area has plenty of room for a table and all the cooking stuff. We used the third bedroom as storage and I think that if the suitcases had to be in the main area it would not leave too much room for free movement. It rained both nights but the rain did not get in the tent (apart from a couple of sections at the bottom). Bad points - Found it hard to put up (the key system is really awkward and caused a few arguments between me and hubby!), there are no pockets in the main area and no hooks to hang lanterns (although there is one in each of the bedrooms). It is a shame that the groundsheet is not built in as it did get cold some nights with the air coming through. I have to say though that this tent is very good despite it's few niggles.

Had one and used it once. As a large tent (for my uses anyway) I thought it was brilliant and can't find a bad word to say about it. Solid, stable, straight forward to put up, very waterproof, very quiet, just great actually. If you need a 6ish berth and have the chance to get one of these don't hesitate.

We bought ours on ebay. Only used ONCE. We have a small child a huge Labrador and all the paraphernalia that comes with that. The tent is big enough for us to eat / live in doors if the weather is damp and late season when the evenings become dark early and cool. The dog even gets a room of his own. Perfect for us and a MASSIVE upgrade.

Very spacious tent which My wife daughter and I can set up completely (including table,chairs beds etc) in about 45 mins. We use side pod with second entry as the Kitchen/store area. Daughter uses other side pod and we use the biggest one but remove inner as the inflatable bed bit bigger than the space. Built in groundsheet a bonus plus we use footprint and carpet which makes it that bit cosier. Due to large living area it does cool down quite quickly at night but at 6'2' tall I'd rather that than have to stoop all the time. Daughter has used tent in garden for sleepover and has held 10 teenage girls and all that goes with them no problem.Even if it does rain tent dries really quickly which is a bonus. Colour coded elasticated poles make life really easy when pitching. Fits back into carry bag as well which some tents do not. Definitely a good family tent. Some sites charge extra because of the size but I have not had any problems to date. Will fit on a standard elec hook up pitch.

The first time we put up the tent it took us around 2 hours to work it out. However, we are new to the big tent scene so bear that in mind. The only other tent I put up before was a 2 man dome tent. It's a spacious in the living area. I'm 6ft3in and can stand up with no problems. The bedrooms are ok. Downfall is they slope down quite a bit so if there's two in each pod, you may get pretty squashed between the pod and whoever is next to you. The pods to the side aren't as bad but the pod at the top really does slope down. No idea why this is the case. Also, putting up the tent(now 3 times) we can never seem to get it shaped correctly on the 2nd entrance where the top bedroom pod is. Not sure if this is a fault with the older version(We have the non sewn in groundsheet) or we are just putting up incorrectly. Other than that, the 5 night stay we just had was great. The park was pretty open spaced so it was pretty windy and the tent had no problems. I'm looking forward to our next camping trip in it.

I bought this for a family camping trip. The kds loved it as they had their own rooms, I have four girls.

Large living space was great as they were able to move about with freedom. Loads of space for cooking and eating.

As we live in the wettest place in the UK. Northern Ireland. It withheld a washed out August Bank Holiday and kept us dry. Torrential rain did not make its way in and will be using 'THIS A LOT IN THE SUMMER'.

The only downside is the rear entrance that doubles as a bedroom. The wife and I used this and it did get a wee bit draughty. The tent does lose heat at night as well. Other than that a good all round family tent.

Great tent, really easy to put up about 30 min in the rain, and it was our first time, the living space is great we had 7 around a table and a cooking area (it was raining and did not leak), the sleeping pods could be a little bigger, but the entrance is great as you can have a wet and dry area. Plenty of vents and light.

We owned this tent and have just sold it and upgraded to a Hi Gear Zenobia.

The tent has a lovely huge living area, a nice porchy area and 3 bedrooms - but the bedrooms were the reason we sold it!

You can fit 3 children in each room comfortably, or 2 adults. BUT one adult will wake up with a face full of tent due to the sloping pod. I have woken up damp many times!

Really easy to put up, we got it down to 30mins in the end and packs back up really easy as well. We had the model which didn't have the sewn in groundsheet and I would prefer to have one sewn in.
