Advantages very spacious, steel frame
Disadvantages large pack, heavy
Nice, robust, tent. Apparently some sellers discontinued it as there were concerns over it leaking, but we've had a couple of very rainy nights in ours and no problems.Durability - some of the hooks/clips that attach the bedroom pods to the tent have come off (due to children jumping around) but can be sewn back on.
It comes with a DVD showing you how to put it up - you can do it without watching it but there are some handy tips so it's worth a watch. We only got round to watching it after 2 camping trips, but found it cut pitching time by 10 mins or so - it now takes us around 45 mins to pitch.Loads of room - spacious bedrooms (easily sleeps 6), large living area. Great for families as there's space for cooking, playing, etc. Good layout, with the bedroom/living room dividing line going along the lenght of the tent rather than the width (so the tunnel arc is from front to back rather than side to side if that make sense). This means you have wide bedrooms and a very wide living area.
Has sewn in groundsheet, but the "lip" at the doorway can be hooked up or down, so you don't get the trip hazard you have with other tents with bucket groundsheets.There are 3 doors so it is well ventilated.
Downsides - large pack - need a big boot or trailer. Heavy (though the pack has wheels).We;re very pleased with it and feel it was good value for money, especially for a steel-framed tent.
