Because the tent had a blemish, we were sent a second NEW flysheet - this is unused and comes too! (in reality the original flysheet is ok but as the tent was new I didn't see why I had to put up with any blemishes)


RRP is a shade under £275 - with the 2nd flysheet the package must be worth nearer £400


I'm willing to let the lot go for £185


Here's some official pictures plus some of ours:






Our Comments:


Quick to put up, light & airy with room for a good long stay - evenings out under the canopy with a glass of red wine and a barbeque on the go

We can't keep all our tents so this has to go - ideally we want a tent as light as this tent but as big as the tent below

Our Comments:


Blimey - it's BIG!

The Espace 8 is the castle of frame tents!

Sleeping up to 8 people and with enough space to have dinner parties this tent wont leave you wanting.

There are plenty of large PVC windows and doors to make this tent light and airy and curtains to give you privicy in the evenings.

Don't let the size of this tent fool you, its as sturdy as a rock and boasts all the Cabanon quality.

When it comes to large frame tents, this is a stylish and spacious holiday home. The Espace is an eight berth frame tent with four bedrooms.

If height (or lack of) is a concern, I am 6'5" and had ample headroom to spare!

This truly is a fantastic family tent which still has a decade or two left in it yet.

If there is a better quality tent made - please contact me (I don't expect any calls!)

The two of us struggled to put it up because of it's sheer mass - we need a lighter weight tent with the same space


If you want both tents, you can have them for £500 and would in effect be getting the Rage 7 tunnel tent free!


...I'll also throw in a new unused externally framed toilet/changing tent
