The Florida 8 is new for 2011 and effectively replaces the Florida 6, which is now out of the range. The Florida 8 is a four room tunnel tent with accommodation for up to eight people. Six will be able to sleep (while the rest keep watch for alligators) in the conventional 3+3 Universal inners tents at the rear of the tent. However, when you have extended family or visitors to stay, you can erect an additional 2-berth inner in the living area to increase your options. Like its smaller relative, the Florida 5, the Florida 8 a fully sewn-in groundsheet throughout, two large doorways, and panoramic windows all with new zip-up curtains. There are also large vents above the window panels for optimal ventilation. The really strong selling point of the Florida 8 is the 4.0 metre wide/1.5 metre deep front sun canopy which is fitted with two drying rails which are perfect for towels and damp clothing or swimwear. The main living area is a massive 2.7x4.0m space with the benefit of the large side door which can be propped open when conditions allow to form a sun canopy (porch poles included).
