It looked very spacious indeed. The family using it had a child in a wheelchair so they clearly needed plenty of space to move around. My fear would be that it is actually too big for an average family.
Nt seen the emperor, but very happy with my 5m - 2adults and 2 teenage boys. We have a quarter inner, 2 in that, the other two sleeping in the main tent, then the sims get propped on their sides to clear space in the day if need be. We cook outside. Tbh, we didn't really need to live in the tent during the day as the weather was so good. In the evening we sat out round the camp fire until we were ready for bed. Pangs.
Have been to see a 5m bell tent today which we liked very much but are concerned it would feel a bit too small for a week or more camp so would probably only use it fro weekends. My DH has now thrown a spanner in the works by finding the 6 metre Emperor Ultimate Bell Tent.Looks like a lot more actual living space. If you have seen one or own one could you let me know your thoughts please. Thanks.
