I bought a oztrail 4 person dome tent, had it for 10 years now, used it quite a few times in that time and everything still works ok. I think they're a good cheap tent.

I have an earlier version of this tent. Had no problems with it really. The design they now have is a great improvement on what was already a decent tent. Lots more windows etc and a sewn in floor in the front screen area. You will enjoy this tent a lot. They colour code all the poles as well so it makes putting it up quite easy. I can do it myself provided it's not too windy but I've never let a little bit of wind stop me. (I was camping in the second dust storm of 2009 - not much fun but another story for another day :grin: )
I've had my tent for nearly 6yrs now. I upgraded to a ct a couple years ago but have kept this tent for when visitors join us camping.

Steve,,,,Our 1st tent we bought (real canvas) back in 79 when we 1st moved to Perth had the ''3'' rooms.....was worth its weight in gold just being able to close off ours & the kids bedrooms.....best tent we ever had...

Hope you guys enjoy your camping

Ok thanks for the comments.

I believe this tent is better than some out there.

But of course a canvas tent will always be
Better as I'm new to camping didn't want to
Fork out to much to then find out we don't
Use it very often as most times it's going to be a
A couple of Weekend trips and one single week trip
Per year at most. as I have a 6 yr old and a neice and nephew
13 and 14. Good tent to keep the kids at may
Also have a single room canvas tent that I
Can borrow off the old man. so I've got a good
Back up if needed.

I'm from Melbourne very wintery at moment
Bring on the summer for the nice weather!!!!

Cheers steve
