OK this isn't for most people n will probably go as cold as a Polar Bears paws but it is a fantastic product and an amazing price for a bundle like this during high season.
You get the Nimbus 8 tent, the add on Porch, footprint for the tent and a carpet for the living area - the tent alone usually sells at £899.99!

The tent is huge, if you only have a little supermini then it isn't for you as it probably won't fit even with the back seat down. However it is unbelievably spacious having 4 double size bedrooms as well as a more than generous living area but its party trick is its an air pole tent and can be erected in under 5 mins and fully pegged out in less than 15 - that's the time for both the tent and porch btw.

I've had mine now for nearly 12 months, in use its been battered by gales and rain and all the time we have been perfectly dry inside and the tent has remained incredibly stable due to the design of the air poles which are cross linked unlike many of these tents and both the main tent and porch only have one point each where you inflate each part.

If you're interested, fire away with any questions.

Sounds great but well beyond my needs! Just a note, the pic looks like a tiny two man affair at first glance, might get some knee jerk colds for that!

​This is really top end - the main tent alone is something like 7.5m x 3m n weighs 42kg and both it and the porch easily handled our blow up 3 seater sofa and single chairs.

Looks like good value (for what you get). I'm tempted.

Trust me it really is, tent snobs might knock it because it isn't an Outwell or Vango but I looked long and hard at everything like this and absolutely nothing came close. It isn't perfect tho, the porch design could have been better connected to the main tent, the plastic weather protection on the door zips has a habit of catching and for the money the curtains should have been zipped instead of velcroed but it is without doubt the most secure feeling tent I've ever owned n I've gone through a fair few over the years.

I just bought this for £495 with code NEW10, personally fount it superior to the HiGear and as least on par with our old Vango for half the cost it was a no brainer.

My only issue would be for this price I would really want poly cotton

​How is it superior to the Nimbus 8? It's Hydrostatic Head is half the Nimbus's on the actual tent itself (only the ground sheet is 6000hh, the tent a poor 3000), it lacks the cross members the Nimbus has for stability, doesn't have the solar reflecting roof, windows are half the size and it has no available porch, footprint or carpet add-ons.
It's pretty much a knock off poor quality copy rip of the Nimbus !

​Correct hence why I stated the saving on the usual actual selling price rather than RRP. The AirGo range are also far superior in build quality than the usual pole based HiGear models too.

quality feels fine to me and it's not leaked yet and while only tested in 30mph winds it held up fine. I've bought the air porch to go with it and it's still cheaper than the tent your showing. Please don't get angry I'm simply showing other options to people.

​Who's Angry? I've simply pointed out why your statement about the tent you purchased is superior to this when it isn't, not by a long shot! It might be cheaper but then again so is a Fiat next to a Mercedes and after your porch purchase (good luck in keeping that dry in poor weather btw) your still lacking the footprint and carpet this deal offers as well as a sub quality tent...

You've been fooled by the badge in thinking because it says Berghaus on yours it must be superior when if you had done a bit more research you'd have seen that it isn't anything to do with Burghaus at all but a badge licenced tent made by Black's and Millets to sell in their stores.

Haha listen angry old guy, I go camping for at most half a dozen weekends a year and maybe a week near the bank holiday so my tent will be fine, I didn't care if it didn't have a brand at all. Fact is you paid double for essentially the same thing so take your buyers remorse to Everest base camp or wherever you're going to try and justify your purchase... Bon voyage!

Forget the naysayers.
I posted this deal in January this year when i actually bought it.

http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/go-outdoors-sale-hi-gear-airgo-nimbus-8-man-package-inflatable-pole-free-system-2114512

Its pure quality. What made it better was a hefty payout by quidco and a code retrospectively applied meant it essentially cost me £720ish. I was well chuffed with that deal.

The tent is awesome. Its huge, so is the packed size but we bought a trailer so we can be spontaneous. Its not a trial getting it back in the bag either as its oversized.

I cannot speak highly enough of this tent. Whenever it gets errected people stand, watch and admire... They like to watch us put the tent up too

The vangos have a ridiculous strap system thing inside which means yoi have to be careful not to strangle yourself moving about inside. We looked at both. AIRGO was just class.

Have to agree with Freezing Wolf, the Vango tension system basically cuts the living area in half! I actually asked an assistant if it had been erected correctly it looked that ridiculous.

Still yet to see a tent as good as the Nimbus overall myself, bit more attention to porches design and it would be absolutely perfect.

Code 10SEP15 will bring it down to £855ish
