Hi
We have seen the above tent for £299, almost half price and not sure whether to buy it. Can anyone recommend it? I like that we can all sleep in together and also loads of room for our toddler on rainy days.
Is it a beast to put up?

No help I am afraid, but I am marking my place as I am also interested in this tent.

Ooh I've just seen this earlier today and think it would be perfect for the 3 of us. Would be interested to see if anyone else has this.

I have this tent and it is huge, excellent for families easy to put up 25 mins. I also have the canopy and it makes the tent almost 30ft long
It is also thicker material 150 denier as most tents are 70d.
Go for it

Garford - that is great news as we have just bought one. It is sitting in our living room at the moment (taking up most of it). Can't wait to take it on its first outing. grin

Just re-instating this thread in case anyone sees. We are thinking about getting this, but umming and aahing as to whether to get the canopy too. Its our first tent. I know full well if I don't buy the package now, then its unlikely in the future that I'll be able to source the canopy on its own (actually can't find one now!) However it does stretch the budget a bit!

Can't help yet as our first trip with ours will be at Easter. However, as it is over 6m long without the canopy, we are thinking we can manage pretty well without it by just using a tarp at the front of the tent as a cover for cooking/somewhere to take wellies off etc.

That said, if you have the money now and can find one, you might as well buy it as I have no doubt they will sell well on Ebay in the future even if you decide against.
