Am looking at getting a trailer tent. I am going to look at one this weekend. Has anyone had any experience of putting them up. How easy is it? Ive looked at a couple of online vids but am not convinced. Also what are they like to tow? I would imagine its better than towing a caravan. The onther bit of help im after is would I be able to move it into a garage by hand. The weight is approx 350kg. Can anyone give me some pointers. Thanks in advance. Lee

my f in law had a trailer tent, and when it finally gave up we got the trailer bit, which is quite handy, I can push it around easily, but it's minus the canvas now.

Family has had one for many years, upgraded recently.

There are pretty easy to put up, everyone is always astonished at how quick they go up, but you do need to know what your doing. You can put them up on your own, but i would suggest having two people makes it alot easier. They become alot harder to put up in strong winds, just like any tent.


They are easier to tow than a cavaran, lighter for starters, also i find they tend to weave less (although that might just be my personal experience) the main advantage is visability, it becomes alot easier to see. Still not perfect mind you as they are still usually wide but being able to see over them is a big advantage.

You should do fine pushing it around, we push ours into a carport and that requires going up hill, again two people would make it alot easier.

Hope that helps :)

Thanks for youre help. Am going to take the plunge I think. We like the camping but havnt got the space for all the bits. Was looking at a mobile home but havnt got the space. Ill be putting it up with the help of my other half but if its like putting the tent up she gives up halfway through and tucks into the wine. I will let you know how I get on. Thanks again.

My fella gets really stressed putting our tent up and throws the hammer in disgust X)

Can you not find a storage yard for a mobile home in your area?

The storage is arround £500 a year. I can get a trailer in my sisters garage wich will cost me a bit of labour. She just wants her grass cut every now and then. Have you tried camping with kids. My lad got up at 4 oclock the last time we took him. I wasnt impressed. The time before that a bloke was snoring all night. Cant beat it though. Its just the thought of getting it all set up.
