Erection and Pitching

It doesn't take long at all to pitch - 4 fibre glass poles that snap into place and then you thread them through, make a hoop and attach the ring and pins.  I can even do it on my own!!!  With two it takes us about 30 mins, including pegging it all out.  It can be erected all in one or you can attach the bedrooms separately if you wish.

Pros and Cons  
Pros: Cons:
price
Quick and easy pitching
vis a vis bedrooms
light and airy with enough windows
1500mm hh
No SIG - but for the price whoís complaining?

The Cost
Around the £110

Verdict
I love this tent.  Itís so easy to erect .It has a light airy quality and ideal for a family of four. You could quite easily sleep 3 in each pod but with 2 in each it is a lot better.  Plenty of living area to sit in and at over 6 foot tall its tall enough to stand in too.  The quality isn't wonderful but itís perfectly adequate and with delta pegs saw us through a hell of a windy weekend better than a lot of the other tents on site.  Itís a brilliant tent for the price and well worth it.  Itís colours make it stand out on the campsite so you can't lose it and it also makes it lovely and light when sitting inside.  We use it for weekends away or if thereís just 2 of us for a week.  Itís great to just throw in the car and drive of at the last minute and know that when you get there its only going take you 30 mins to be set up.
