  1. The first one had alfa.romeo stickers on. And a roll cage, looked like a lot of fun. The guy driving gave me a wave while we were parked on the m5

    The guy in the other one looked weird

  8. Guilty as charged!

    Easy to put up or take down on your own but not quick but quicker than our old frame tent style.
    Its Big.
    Has a little porch canopy at front to shelter outside whilst chatting & having a smoke (standing room for at least 4 without blocking the door).
    I've not managed to break it yet however it is only 12 months old.
    Sewn in ground sheet.
    2 Big canopy things with adjustable poles which reveal windows when up, they also give enough shelter from the rain to do your BBQ under.

    Con's
    It's still pretty big & heavy once down & in the bag.
    Front porch canopy could have been a bit bigger.
    Sliding door will catch the awning but it has a loop which I attached some guy rope too then pass this over the corner of the van and hook onto the rear hatch latch, the door then doesn't catch.


    We do like it as a family of 4 + pooch it gives us plenty of room when we go away we use it for 3+ nights & when we are not guaranteed a scorcher. We will be purchasing a sun canopy thingy for when we go away for just 1 or 2 nights especially if the forecast is good!

    Friday for example was quite a rainy day, there's room for us to sit and chill with plenty of room for our kids to come in and out or sit and play or for friends to bring there chairs to sit & chill, we can leave the door open & the rain doesn't get in, it comes with the option to use fig 8 or you can use the pole & clamps provided which I much prefer as its proper secure & we get no water dripping through. It also gives enough of a gap between the van & the awning for our bucket with a loo seat for those late night / early morning / anytime toilet dashes with the kids.

  18. Oh no ,really sorry after all the help you gave us :(
     
  19. Not your fault lord Congi, nobody forced me to drink your fine whiskey even if that was the only cause of my illness but it wasn't! It didn't help matters I grant you but it really was the venison as well :)
