Hi all!! Been having a really good look for a good tent under £200, trying to get the other half into camping so needed something which was quite roomy. I will comment on the features individually.
Code for 10% discount bringing the price to £180 is: NEW10
Delivery is Free or next day delivery for £5.99 (courier is DPD and can track delivery nicely).
On with the Features!
-6 man tent
(Only 2 of us and a dog, but it's nice to be able to stand up in the tent to get dressed, eat dinners etc.)
-Tunnel style – large living space with 2x removable bedrooms and a built-on canopy.
(If there is only 2 of you, you can remove one of the bedrooms for more living space)
-Fully waterproof flysheet and taped seams – 3000mm hydrostatic head, with a classy embossed pattern.
(3000mm is okay, shouldn't get any leaks, though 4000mm tends to be the norm for more premium products)
-Waterproof, taped, sewn-in groundsheet - for complete protection from water and creepy crawlies.
(groundsheet is a must, keeps everything tidy, stops bugs getting in and can help to insulate the tent and stop the drafts getting in!)
-Stable design - colour coded fibreglass arcflex poles (12.7 and 16mm in diameter), 4x corner stake pegs and steel roundwire pegs.
-Adaptable bedrooms - easy to fit, with rollaway doors and dividers that can be removed for extra living space.
-Darkened bedrooms - prevent the early morning light from waking you up.
-6 large windows with roll-up curtains – for extra light and privacy when needed.
(nice amount of windows, nothing worse than staying in the outdoors and being able to see nothing but a green sheet in front of you!)
-Mesh doors and ventilation points – allow airflow right through the tent while preventing insects from creeping in.
-Storage pockets and organiser – for a tidy and organised tent.
(bit of storage in the living area and bedrooms, comes in handy)
-Electric hook up - zipped access point with Velcro tidies to run the cable to a ceiling lantern point.
(Helps to keep things tidy)
-2 king poles included - can be used to hold open the side door and convert it to an awning.
-Fire retardant – tested to the BS EN 5912 standard.
-Size: 595 x 360 x 210cm
-Packed size: 72 x 35 x 35cm
Overall I would say this was good value for money, only 2 reviews so far but both give it 5 stars.
RRP is obviously a bit of a joke, but I think for £180 you are getting a lot for your money.
Canopy at the front lets you store stuff with some protection from the weather as well. Or nice to sit outside with a bit of cover from the weather!
Off to the lakes with it on friday, I will let you know how it performs if anyone is interested! Just don't wish rain on me!! It's gonna be sunny I tell you :-)
Lastly, I have been scouring the internet for furniture for the tent and have bought a tent carpet suitable for the living space of this tent which is 2.5 x 3.5m (£22), also a LARGE folding kitchen unit (£58), 4ft folding table 150kg load (£25), 2 chairs (£10), Jerrycan-plastic (£5). I'll post them as deals and provide links for these if anyone is interested.
3 Days scouring the internet for good quality but cheap products, best I could find, hope it saves someone some time! Happy Camping :-)
