WHO’S IT FOR?
The Bergen 6 is a large tent for families taking longer holidays
WHAT’S IT LIKE?
This is a huge, spacious family-sized tent with superb materials and loads of room for furniture and storage. The front porch, with its windows and groundsheet, makes an ideal kitchen and dining space, particularly as the front can be fully opened to provide maximum ventilation. You enter the main living area through the flat front door and here you’ll find a fantastic, versatile space. The central area has plenty of room for furniture – you’ll comfortably fit a table and chairs for at least four in here, as well as storage units. Even better is the side annexe which is perfect for storage, or even a portaloo. This side room is also set up to fit Kampa’s optional wardrobe rails. On the opposite side there’s another access door, which has mesh backing for ventilation as well as a PVC window. Other features include two cable entry ports, storage pockets and a drop down step at the front door. The sleeping area at the back has two smaller double bedrooms on either side of the master bedroom – all have darkened material and low and high level ventilation. If you need more sleeping space, you can take advantage of the large living space by adding another optional double bedroom.
The versatility of the layout coupled with the amount of space is excellent and the front porch area is very useful. The storm straps provide extra reassurance and overall the materials and workmanship are of the highest quality.
WHAT COULD BE IMPROVED?
The size and weight of the tent makes transport and pitching more difficult and you’ll need a large pitch to accommodate it.
