Recommend a 6 Person Tent please

Found 29th Jul 2010
Could you guys recommend a 6 person tent (for a family of 4 & need some extra space for the tod)

Not necessarily the cheapest but would prefer personal recommendation.

Should be easy to put up.

Thanks in advance

We always buy vango.We find you definitely get what you pay for, i personally wouldn't be paying £40 in argos for one. There are lots of different shapes and styles. Is there a local camping shop you could go into? We did that and that way you see them set up etc. We have bought a brand new vango for this year although haven't used it yet so can't give advice on our model.

In the past we have had (all vango) vail, colorado, (will add a few more when i remeber them)


You also need to consider height, do you want to be able to stand up in it? I'd also go for one with a sewn in groundsheet (some like , some dont)
Advantage being....... No mozzies get in!
Disadvantage.......If you damage the floor tents goosed.


Have a look around i'd say, whats your price range. I'll have a look there are some really nice ones about.

Another thing to consider.... This is what got us the first time. We were given a 4 man tent. So off we go with my bro and his family. Get there put it up and it would only fit 1 double air bed in.. Eeekkk. Plus a small space for bits and pieces. Luckily 2 of us went in with my bro.

Thanks superskilly, much appreciated

Happy to spend a decent sum for a 'good' quality & easy to put up one. Would prefer the one where we can stand up as with the little one, its inevitable.

Have a Blacks Store nearby.

Ditto on Vango,u get what u pay for definately.Venture is a good start,easy to pitch n waterproof straight away as u put tent up n hang everything from inside.Not sure if they make em big enough for your needs though.Good luck,we had a blast when the kids were small.
