By: Winniewitch6  Reason: I've used one  Made in: 2009   Rating: 

I've used this tent for 2 years on the trot, last year was our first time, we had 3 children,myself and partner, we had 1 of the children in a travelcot in the main living area, the rooms are big,

This year we had 2 children in 1 room on 2 separate single blow up beds, we had bad weather {heavy rain and thunder} for the first 3 days of our holiday and found the rain kept getting in through under the door if the flap wasn't secured but did not leak,i found with 3 adults and 3 children it was bit of a squeeze if we were all sat in the living space but you manage. Overall I think its a fantastic tent. I'm not hundred % on the year as its my parents tent and know they've had it a few years

This is a perfect tent for a family as the living space is big enough to fit us all in comfortably when it's wet.

Easy to put up with just one person as it only needs 2 guy ropes to get it up-right.

As a tunnel tent it can still fit on most campsite's normal size pitches which some other 8 berth tents don't.

My only complaint is a small one, that to 'open' the windows to let the light in you have to do from the outside. Not great if it's raining.

Other than that this is a fab tent.

We love this tent! Its quick and easy to put up, and take down, but needs some very clever folding to get it back in the bag again! As there's only 3 of us we tend to only put one bedroom up, with the divider, which gives us loads of extra living space, especially with the porch opened! Great for larger families or a group of friends going away! Everyone comments on how HUGE it is too!

Spent a long time researching before we bought this and very pleased with it. Very easy erection (went for a tunnel on purpose as I'm only 5'2' and could never raise a dome) and very quick to erect even in windy conditions. Older model so bathtub groundsheet which is fine for ventilation but can make the living quarters a bit draughtier in colder weather. I leave the bedrooms in when we strike so can pitch all in one which is fantastic.

We have the travel cot and single mattress in one bedroom (with the partition up) and us in the other so plenty of room in our boudoir, and my eldest had enough room to play in his 'bedroom' too, and lots of room for kitchen table/benches, Coleman Extreme and high chair in living area.

Glad we have the older model as there is a door each side and also full fly screens on the bedroom, but unfortunately no fly screen on the door.

Will be buying a canopy next year to put the buckets and spades and wet boots in!

I love this tent! When choosing a tent I wanted one which was quick and easy to pitch with a reasonable living space but with two decent size bedrooms. This tent seemed to offer it all and it didn't disappoint.

The pitch couldn't be easier, especially as it's a tunnel which I think is the easiest. Only 5 colour coded poles, fly pitch first which is most sensible, especially for those rainy days. I personally love the SIG, gives a little extra warmth and I never need to worry about checking my groundsheet should we have a torrential downpour.

The bedrooms are a lovely size, and the living area is more than adequate to house table, chairs, coolbox and collapsible kitchen. With the matching windbreak, it looks a fabulous tent from the outside too. Another bonus is that one end has the ability to raise into a porch which is lovely on those warmer days to be able to sit underneath, do a BBQ and generally gives extra flexibility. For those of you who are walkers and didn't want to put the second bedroom in then it makes a great place for all your walking gear and muddy boots!

Can't find any faults, it's just the right size too. Big enough without being monstrous!

Great sleeping space. Quick and easy to erect. Bedrooms have built in ground sheet but the living space does not! Very draughty at the 2 entrances. Didn't know until looked at photos of a review that you can lift one of the sleeping areas up during the day to maximise the living space(thanks). When you use both the bedrooms the living space can be cramped for 8 people. Very generous storage bag supplied for the tent. All in all a good tent but after struggling for the past few years I'm looking for one with more living space.

Fab tent. Quick & easy to pitch. Sturdy. Great size & nice looking piece of kit. There's only the 2 of us (plus our wampy border collie!) so we use just the one sleeping pod, thereby leaving us LOADS of living space to enjoy :-)

Purchased this tent (our third tent by the way) after seeing a demo erected at our 'local' camping store. Managed to find it new and cheaper online, so brought it there along with a footprint. Both arrived safe and well and to be honest the tent has been a joy to use ever since. It's easy to erect for her-in-draws and myself. The fully enclosed bath tub style ground sheet prevents any water/creepy crawlies ingress. The tent has had to stand up to some windy and wet weather, but has never, ever let us down. We tend to use one sleeping pod as our sleep area and the other as the storage for clothing etc, this leaves the centre area free for lounging about. Overall I would rate the tent as 10/10. I understand that this model is no longer made by Vango but I can whole heartedly rate it as a second hand buy. I'm still looking for a suitable side canopy to add that final touch.

Fantastic tent very easy to pitch. Took no time at all, this is our first camping experience. Would definitely recommend this tent to friends and family. All I need to do now is buy a canopy if there's 1 available. Brilliant.
