Thanks, but the model in your link is an older model.

How can you tell? Your link says 2009 and 2010 models. The other sites don't specify. What's the difference?

The tent is updated

In what way? And how can you tell the links I gave aren't updated models?

I'd really like to know as I was going to buy the one you posted until I checked around.

If you could please confirm :

a) how you can tell that the links I posted are 'old models', and
b) precisely what the difference is between the 'old' and 'new'

I'd be most grateful.

There is only a slight change in look and colour between models, take what you fancy i just liked the green and black 2010 model.

Just remember when the sun rises at 7am and the dark lining of this tent starts to suck the heat from it like a black hole - you'll be cooked within 10 minutes!

I hope you like early mornings when camping!

I like early warm mornings when camping. That sounds like a feature more than a flaw.

Slightly off topic. Can someone please recommend a tent for 2 aduls and two kids to share. We are novices, needs to be easy to put up and it will be used in spring and summer rather than the cold months.

we have used these 6 man tents in scouts for a while

good tent, easy to put up etc

A cheap solution to the heat problem (coupled with a few clothes pegs)



This. Essential packing for any camping trip.

Absolutely. Bought these on friday myself! Forgot about using them on the tent - although I have done it many times. An absolute must for those (rare) scorching days at Glasto!

Clothes pegs? Please can you explain?

I am off to V this summer and need 3 x 2man tents. Would these be any good for a festival?

Thanks

good weather should b ideal i think they mean attach the heat foil sheets to tent to stop it getting to oven temps when suns givin it some and take a couple spare for wen tent blows away

or dont touch the sides in the rain lol

Good luck putting it up in the rain, you put the inner tent up first, bit of a silly idea.

I had one of these tents last year and it was rubbish. The seams rip very easily and it leaks as the inner and outer layer touch in some places.

good luck putting any tent up lol my camping days are gone, i like my comforts!

The Marshall Leisure superstore is located at Scremerston on the A1167 just outside Berwick-upon-Tweed

So, this price if local enough to pick up, and assuming it's got stock there. Otherwise, there is the delivery charge.

check out the coleman 2 man tent posted on here a month ago from amazon, its gone up a couple of quid now but its a great tent used it a few times now

Hmm - it's now disappeared from the first link and gone up a tenner in the second. Typical. A rule of this site should be "See it? Buy it!" Any hesitation and you're stuffed X)

well i managed to order one at £25 delivered, many thanks Dilbert & OP.
lord knows what colour its going to be, but i'm not that fussy Lol.

Just in case anyone was considering this, the new 2011 models are out next week and come with a 50% more waterproof flysheet (3000 as opposed to 2000 Hydrostatic Head).

Mind you, I've been camping since the 70's and I'd never heard the term before I came on this site!
