2 Reviews of the Kingstone 8

By: Jules1972  Reason: I own(ed) one  Made in: 2007   Rating: 

This tent is simply HUGE. Yes it takes a little longer than most to put up, but the process is quite simple and straightforward with a little common sense.

There are 5 poles, 2 short 2 medium and 1 long. As common sense tells you little ones at the end, then the medium meeting the longest in the middle - easy.

I am 6 foot and was able to stand upright with room to spare. The sleeping compartments occupy either end of the tent, and easily fit 4 a piece. We have actually all slept in one end (myself, my wife and two daughters) allowing one sleeping area not to be used making the interior HUGE. Easily accommodating kitchen, toilet, wardrobes, tables and chairs with room to spare.

Nice tent, easy to erect and spacious. It scores 9 out of 10 as its not a fitted groundsheet and the wind can flap the edges a bit. However a minor set back to a tent that literally ticks all the boxes.

A large tunnel tent with plenty of room. Usually there are 5 of us using the tent and in some ways the tent feels too big. But it is nice to have the extra space.

Takes 2 of us 1 hour to erect and peg down. The job to erect the tent is simple enough, but it is the sheer size of the tent that takes the effort. There are 5 poles (3 long and 2 shorter) It would have been helpful if they would have been colour coded as I have on a number of occasions put the wrong poles in the wrong holes.

Ventilation is provided at each corner and via mesh covering half the windows. There is a door at either side of the central living area and a large door at one end. The 2 bedrooms at either end can each be configured as large bedrooms or divided into two smaller units.

Overall a good tent for a large family or for a 2 week holiday. Not a tent I would use for an overnight stay.
