2 Reviews of the Roma 6

Loved this tent it came with us to Ireland held up in very strong wind and even a storm. It held 4 adults with plenty of room we even had electric hook up . The thing I loved was you could move the door in so you had a porch if there was say two of you or move it back out for larger amount.

One the mane holiday there was 4 adults and a dog . The tent was well used and then sold on to another family that love it just as much.

First, I need to say I not sure if I have the correct year of release for this tent, as we have had it for some time, bought from new however!

This is a very spacious tunnel tent, with room enough for our family of four, two adults, and a son and daughter; I feel six may be pushing the capacity, but not impossible.

The sleeping compartments have sig's; the main living area does not. This means that the living area can be a little draughty and we have also experienced birds, hedgehog and squirrels in the tent overnight (not all at once tho!) There are two narrow hanging storage panels between the main sleeping pod and the next, and two large, lower level mesh storage pockets on each of the two sides in the main area. The front door is movable and can be placed further back in the tent, allowing a porch type area. There are windows on the front door, with curtains held in lace by velcro tabs. The inner windows are half mesh, and the outer flaps roll up to permit ventilation. I personally had trouble doing this, as I am 5'5', the tent is much taller and the securing tabs are near the top! There are also two side doors which roll up to allow ventilation, but we have never used these.

Pitching, we found tricky initially, as it is so huge, but once we had the knack it was ok. We found it quite difficult to set the correct tension on both guys and the inner straps,which resulted in the tunnel dipping and bowing in odd places. Lots of adjustments were needed, but we persevered until it was pitched correctly.

As said, the living are is huge. My husband stands over 6' tall and was able to stand easily inside this tent. There was plenty of space for table, chairs, cooker etc. Even the ubiquitous BWL has a discreet corner!

Sounds good so far, but here is the bad stuff. We have used the tent approx four times, due to work constraints, but each time has been a disaster and a literal washout. It is sold as having a HH of 3000mm. I don't know if ours was faulty, but it cannot withstand any rain at all, wind driven or not. It takes very little time for the water to find its way in. The seams along the top edge, where the support poles lie, always allow rain in first, after only a short time, this then drips down onto anything sat in the middle of the tent. It does take long at all for the fabric itself to leak, from then on you are done for, if it is a long rainy spell. Each time water has poured in from the roof, over and into the sleeping compartments .Just everywhere. It is absolutely horrid. Our most recent trip, we even erected a 2 man Eurohike dome tent, inner and fly, inside the living area so the children could sleep dry in their beds.

I have never, ever owned a tent as bad as this, going from the early days of an old ridge tent, to an ancient but oh, so reliable canvas frame tent, bought second hand, make unknown. I will never use this again, and am now in the process of trying to find a contact point for Jamet to let them know exactly what I think.

You may be wondering why we did not do something the first time out? We foolishly listened to advice that told us it would now tighten up and not leak again.Time passed before the next use. Too long to return it as faulty, our mistake and a very hard one to learn.

In the market for a new tent now, possible a Vango Tigris but time will tell.
