Wondering if anyone has bought this previously? Is it big enough for 2 adults and 2 children, or is it more of a 2 berth?

Does anyone know the dimensions of the room as I will be wanting 2x double air beds to fit. Would a double air bed fit into a room comfortably campers?? Thanks

It gives the dimensions at 300cm wide, so each pod will be just under 150cm wide, about 5 foot.
I would say that's easily enough for double air beds.

Would probably be a bit of a squeeze - might do for 1 or 2 nights but for a weeks holiday it would be a nightmare by the time you have added clothes, cooking equipment, etc On the camping forums for a weeks family holiday the general advice is to go for one or two berths more

I think you'll struggle to be honest - if you look at the video the bedrooms taper towards the back and you don't have much space length wise to play with....

We bought one and have just got back from our first ever camping trip. It was a great tent and to be honest, there was just about the right amount of space for the 4 of us. Any more and it would have been a bit too cramped for comfort. Plenty of living space and relatively easy for us (novices) to put up.

got one of these too £60 with new Tesco customer voucher and yes it seems good - possibly better value than this Aldi one. Bit of a mare getting it packed back up though.

I think it sounds very like this one that was once sold at LIDL:
lidl-service.com/cps…son Tent
... right down to the 'convenient washing line'

There is a link for the instructions, and in there is a layout plan.
For me, I've just gone for the Tesco Corona. The ALDI one looks just a bit too big (5 metres long!). Though I'm also very interested in trying to track down the Ozark Trail sold at Asda. We've had the 4 man version of this for a few years and it is very good.

Sorry missed the sizing earlier. Any campers out ther got an opinion on the hh rating between the gelert and the aldi? Aldi is higher at 3000 compared to gelert 2000. I'm not planning on going to the Himalayas tho!

I got the powered cool-box last time they did it and it was very useful for camping last year.

Pleased it wasn't just us who struggled to get it back in the bag. We did the same and used the code to get it for £60. Fab price for the tent. Has 2000 hh rating which is fine for us as we will only camp in the warmer months.
When we put it up, it looked huge, but then looking round the campsite, we had the smallest tent oO

You get what you pay for with camping, don't compromise, it's uncomfortable enough as it is. Worth paying a couple of hundred quid more & getting something half decent.

Does it actually chill the food like a fridge? I ask because I bought a Thermos one from Argos last week and although you hear the fan working, after 3 hours on the road (via cig lighter socket) it was at best cool.

Or book a hotel or b&b and actually enjoy your vacation, rather than a miserable, muddy campsite with communal toilets and washing facilities !

Just saying .....

It did seem to, but it cannot run at maximum power from the 12v car socket. It has two connectors, one for 12v (which I used when in transit to the campsite) and then a standard UK plug which I connected to my electric hookup. It kept dairy and meat fresh all week, and drinks nicely chilled.

Some people may decry camping with an electric hookup, but there's no way I could go on a camping holiday without a kettle and a way to charge batteries for cameras, etc...

I generally go to Camping and Caravanning Club sites. The facilities are always excellent, and it's a good deal cheaper and more fun than a hotel or B&B.

So take your stupid, pointless stuck up comments elsewhere no one is interested you complete and utter moron...........why are you even on a camping thread?????????????????????????

As witchfinder says - the coolers tend to work better from the mains (if they have a mains connection). In a car the limited airflow (if you have it stuck in the boot surrounded with other baggage) can also hinder cooling. Three things you could do to improve the performance - cool the box overnight by leaving it plugged into the mains (so that you're starting from cold), try to put chilled stuff and supplement the cooling with icepacks or frozen drinks bottles or bags of ice from the supermarket.

Shouldn't be expired. I've just picked one of these up for £45 with the Mirror voucher and have also seen them for full price in another store.

Bought one, put it up in our garden and one of the front windows was leaking after a night of rain. I'm going to return it for a replacement.

Maybe someone could tell me this, how far apart should the inner tent and outer "shell" be positioned?
