A quality tent that is spacious and robust
We bought this tent last year and went out in September to the New Forest.
We were hit by severe storms that ripped some nylon tents on the park. It was noisy but stable and we stayed dry! In the following couple of days we saw many others with lesser quality tents strike camp and leave, they were wet and damaged. Second part of the holiday was superb, hot and sunny but humid after the rain. The ventilation maintained the tent cool and dry.
This year no storms but some torrential rain which the tent dealt with easily. We bought the awning as well for extra space and would suggest others consider as well.
Overall a superb tent of outstanding quality and very sturdily built. Poles are heavy duty and a tight fit but helps with the rigidity in storms. Ventilation is excellent in hot humid conditions which support the benefits of a good poly-cotton tent. I would have no hesitation in recommending this quality tent to couples or small families who want a tent for all conditions and weathers. Exceptional value for money. Our last tent lasted 24 years!
We suggest you 'practice' erecting the tent after watching the Robens erection video, work from the front to the back, Loose peg the groundsheet, front frame and peg the front guys. If you are short like my wife and I you might need a stool to reach the roof line poles. It is a tight fit between sections. Finally tighten all guys and pegs, including on the awning if fitted. The inner tent is just as well built and very versatile as is the awning.
