Hey everyone.
My family and I are thinking about going camping on a regular basis but I don't know if my hubby will like camping or not, and would hate to buy all the gear only to find he doesnt want to go again.
My friend reckons you can stay in 'ready made' tents provided by certain camp sites so you can try before you buy so to speak.
Ive been searching online but havent found anything.
Does anybody know of anywhere that offers this?
If you have understood that you deserve a medal lol oh and rep! x

I cant answer your question about ready made tents...

but possibly try freecycle for a free tent

If you decide you like camping and decide to then buy a tent that better suits your needs, pop it back on freecycle.

Try ]eurocamp :thumbsup:

Camping holidays with ready pitched tents

Tents are at a very resonable price at the moment so I don't think you would lose too much by selling it on if camping was not the thing for you.
Or have a look at this site............]http//ww…htm





Happy Camping !!!!!!!

You sound like my Oh, she keeps trying to wean me off hotels and get me under canvas, I like my luxuries too much. The nearest I got to camping was two years ago when we hired a winnebago for glastonbury.

THe 'ready made' camping holidays don't give you a real feel for camping, as they are usually higher spec'd than a 'normal' tent.

Buy a cheap tent, try it out & then if you like it get a good quality tent & sell on the cheap tent.

It's not just expense of the tent though. it's all the other stuff you need.

Agree with you, either hire, boorw a tent or try the ready made variety.

It is not everyones cup of tea.

Thanks Ill take a look. Although tents them selves are reasonable prices all the equipment is very expensive when you add it all up.
