About this deal

The porch is not waterproof and there are not enough securing points on the porch to hold it in place firmly. If you like the Gelert Horizon 6 or want to a different colour, then this tent is actually the same as the Gelert Horizon (both Hi Gear and Gelert have the same manufacturer). The sides of the porch blow in and the wind blows under the porch. I returned my porch as it had a small hole in. Getting the pole into the key was too tight and I think the tent would break.

There are however some methods that you can use to determine a product’s quality without needing to physically have it.Price – as you’d expect the price of a product can be an instantly recognisable factor on what sort of quality you can expect. Whoever came up with the phrase “you get what you pay for” pretty much hit the nail on the head. Whilst it’s not always the case and there are many bargains to be had, you can as a general rule, expect the higher priced products to offer better quality than a the cheapest option. We’ll dive into the price of Hi-Gear Zenobia 6 Nightfall Tent in more detail in a moment.

The Hi-Gear Zenobia 8 looks more professional with the little rain canopies over the doors. These prevent rain falling inside the tent. When buying 5 – 6 Person Tents, the quality of the product is going to be one of the factors that you really scrutinise before you commit to buying. To give that price some context we then looked at all of the products available from Go Outdoors in the 5 – 6 Person Tents category. We found 17 items in total. What’s the price of 5 – 6 Person Tents? Bought as an addition to our Zenobia tent for all the usual reasons: more space, shelter to sit, cook, etc.

How to buy the right family tent

The porch could do with a better fit to the main tent but it served its purpose and looked great when up.

As for the Zenobia 6, the Regatta Karuna 6 family tent seems to be the obvious alternative, although the Regatta Karuna does not have darkened bedrooms and it’s slightly more expensive than the Zenobia 6. The downside to buying online is that you can’t actually get hold of the product to try it out first. Bought the porch to go on our Zenobia tent, had the tent a few years but with 5 of us the space inside was small, so got the porch to make more seating area and to have more space inside if it rained. We had a nightmare putting it up, had to adjust it many times as it just never looked like it fitted right,it never fitted snugly against the tent so rain came in the sides and it was windy when we fitted it and it nearly flew off, it took 3 adults to hold it down, its like a kite.Large gap around the bottom is nice on a hot day, not so when raining (will likely saw off a few inches from the poles to lower the porch to the ground) Adds a fair amount of extra room & can comfortably hold our kitchen unit and the table & chairs and leave room between to get in / out the main tent easily
