Small tent!

Postby AngelaD » Sun Jun 03, 2012 3:03 pm

Hi, would be grateful for any opinions on the following:

I'm looking to buy a very small tent, just for my and two small kids so we can still go to events if OH is working. Has to be light enough so I can shove it on the roof of the car, and also so I can put it up by myself if needed. I've found this type of tent which would be ideal but I'm not sure how authentic this is:

Would this do? Our groups target era is 1360 or thereabouts. What do you reckon?


Thank you

Hi,
it looks like they are around for quite a long period.

Has anyone ordered from them?
We have some new people in our group looking for a tent and they look good value.

Yes tents look very good value. I don't know of anyone who has ordered tents from them, but have heard people who have ordered other stuff and all was ok?

Thanks for the pictures :thumbup:

One of our members (Clarence Household) ordered one last year and very nice it is too. Would happily endorse them
