Has this tent got a sewn in ground sheet
12 September 2016Use since 1 week or lessI recommendThat review has been deposited on this product versionpurchase confirmedQuechua Air Seconds XL 6 person tentthe size, easy to put up - very easy none!
Fabulous tent - dont ever go with poles again. I manged to have the three kids put this up for me - (I have a bad back) and there was plenty of room inside other than the sleeping area so the sleeping bags were kept clean and tidy throughout.
It was up in 15 mins and down in 10 - just what you want.
Its sturdy and everyone came over and admired it - we were so proud! lol
Its big enough to go away for two weeks and would hold everything comfortably. Bargain!!

04 September 2016Use since 2 to 8 weeksI recommendThat review has been deposited on this product versionGreat tent gret serviceEase of erection, space inside Ground sheet not sewn in, carrying bag small.
Further to my review of the service in store I have now had the opportunity to use the tent.
I have just returned from 10 days in West Wales and the tent performed a dream. It was pouring with rain when we erected it but it was problem free. Although there are gaps where the groundsheet meets the sides it was not draughty. It did encourage slugs, snails etc to join us during the night. One minor fault is the fixed bedroom door zip failed and the teeth came adrift from the fabric. This has now been sorted by Alberto at the Southampton store and I am waiting for a new inner to arrive form a Norther store. I cannot fault the service and after care this store has given me. Would I buy anoother tent from Decathlon???? Most definately YESSSSS. Why cannot one get the same sort of service from a British store with British staff ???????

23 August 2016I recommendThat review has been deposited on this product versionExcellent value for money
We love this tent. Just got back from our 7th trip this summer and the tent had its first real test against 60mph winds and heavy rain. Tent stood firm whilst many dearer brands were totally destroyed. The sideways rain did mean we got some light moisture through the vents but wasnt a problem at all in the circumstances! The bungee cords on the doors eventually gave out but preferable to the tent fabric (they did their job!) and pence to replace. Tent otherwise totally unscathed. We have recommended this tent to everyone who has come to admire it.

Upon Purchasing our Air Seconds 6.3 xl on 12/08/2016, I quickly erected it in our garden to familiarise myself and then dis-assembled it. No problems at all, folded back up and bagged quite easily. This weekend we ventured out on our first camping weekend to the Staffordshire Moorlands in the UK.
Arriving fairly late (17.00) Our tent was erected completely including pegged and guy roped pegged easily within an hour, Actual First erection (Blown Up And Basic Pegging) Around 15 minutes. Our first night was fantastic. However, Our second night not so good. This is where I think I need to make you aware of our problems and potential failings. We were pitched on top of a field with a natural valley creating an incline. We had force 6/7 Gale force winds, (60-70 mph) Because our tent was pitched with the back end (Bedrooms) taking the full force of the wind, literally, the blown up inner tube was folding in half and the whole back end of the tent was collapsing in the wind. The last very back section inflatable tube has no Guy Ropes nor a place to connect any. Although this was very extreme weather, the tent in general stood up quite well but I was not prepared for risking injury, I believe extra guy rope attachments may have helped in this matter but I made the decision to pitch down and return home. Another minor thing I thought could be a potential problem was at the front of the tent where the ground sheets meets the angled window sections next to the front doors. There needs to be either Velcro or some other type of fastener to attach the sides to the ground sheet. these were not facing the direct wind but were still just flapping around. In a direct storm I believe these sections could cause major flooding problems within the extra third bedroom and living section. Generally, I'm very pleased with the ease of pitching, the quality and mostly the size of the tent. However, upon inspection, I would possibly check out various other Air tents due to what I believe are minor but could become major faults. Value for money is not always the answer so I will be comparing other manufacturers with the view of maybe purchasing another tent

This is my second review now,just got back from Devon and I can honestly say what a great tent,so quick to put up and take down and plenty of space for the family to chill out when weather was bad,much warmer since doing Velcro conversion on ground sheet and less bugs(look out for pics on site) it really worked well at keeping out the drafts and with the light tarpaulin erected at the front made a great shelter to cook under and get out the sun when we had some,there were tents similar to ours taking much longer to put up and stood up to the wind no problem
13 August 2016Use since 2 to 8 weeksI recommendThat review has been deposited on this product versionpurchase confirmedFantastic!Able to erect myself
I purchased this tent, as I needed something that I could put up on my own. I managed to achieve this and within 45 mins I was having a rewarding drink. So pleased all round with this tent, very roomy inside even with the third bedroom in use. I have no hesitation in recommending. Only downside was the pump I purchased separately, the tube kept coming off the end and I needed to secure with a cable tie, It would have taken less time to get the tent up on my own but for this.
