The Royal Atlanta 8 Air design has been around for many years. It was originally called the Royal Atlanta (when this tent had fibreglass poles instead of a air tube system). This Royal Atlanta Air is new. The bedroom sizes are ample to fit a standard double airbed at 140cm not like some tents which only allocate 120cm per double room. Each double room has a divider to separate the rooms or you can remove the divider to make larger bedrooms. This tent is completely sealed so the doorway entrances are off the ground, no chance of any wind or water getting in on bad nights. The doorways can be a tripping hazard for young kids but most just get used to it.
The Brisbane is also one of the taller tents with a max height of 215cm = 7ft. For me of course i am only 5' 6 I have plenty of head room.
The entire tent fits into a decent size bag it won't take up all your boot space. I can lift it?. The AIR frame system on this tent makes it easy to put up and take down there are not many tents of this size that one can do on their own. This is a great selling feature if there is only 1 adult camping with several kids.
Living space is generous not the biggest and not the smallest either approx 3.2m x 3.1m the size of a small patio area. Enough space for chairs, table, cooker + stand, ice box etc. 2 Entrance doors into this tent and 2 large windows which have mesh panels so plenty of ventilation and if your into camping you know that ventilation is very important. The bedrooms have pockets on the outside I love this feature. You need places to put the items likes car keys, change, phone chargers, toiletries, camera, crayons etc handy (but don't put too much heavy stuff in these pockets).
There is a fantastic sized extension which fits this model of tent. The extension is not air it has a Fibreglass frame. You won't always use your Extension but it gives you so much more room. I have seen the extension on camp sites been used as kitchen areas set up with a cooker stand, fridge etc. The extension is also perfect for leaving the buckets shovels, bikes and buggies in out of the rain.
For me this is a must. I know the Carpet can get dirty and you can't wash them in a washing machine. If your walking around or sitting on the floor of your tent with your kids it makes such a difference. It's soft and warm and comfortable. (Bit of luxury!).
Optional in my view they can be good and bad. If you go camping and the site ground is wet and mucky when you get there the footprint is great because you can open your tent up on a nice clean footprint instead of getting your new tent dirty. Once you do not have a "wash out" of a week when you take your tent down it's still clean and it's only your footprint which requires to be cleaned.
If however you have a "wash out" or if your tent is pitched on a slope the rain water can find its way between your footprint and the groundsheet of your tent. If the water lodges and remains there it can then start to come up through your groundsheet. This has happened to me where I had my cooker stand stacked with heavy items. The water started to come up through the groundsheet at the points where the stand legs were.
Only when taking our tent down did we see a puddle of water on our footprint underneath with the cooker stand was placed. A footprint is also a double layer so if there was a protruding rock or broken glass etc your footprint would protect your groundsheet a little.
