All Tent Discounts, Offers and Sale - April 2018
I've got the four man one it's a great tent. I didn't use the room divider and could put a full sized flock divan in there. Felt a bit lavish at the time.
Nice tent (I have the smaller version and can vouch for it). (y)
This has been £70 ish in recent weeks. I'd wait for it to drop again
No problem, I was sure it was linked in (y)
No sorry I was mistaken, I thought I had edited my comment. I remembered I had bought a Calder instead and the reason for that was the ground sheet being seen in
Are you sure?
I got the inflatable one for £167 on amazon just after xmas. Still havent opened it but as it's over £400 now I might sell it & get this one instead.
yeah all depends on what your after... better airflow and condensations control, and detachable and easy to clean, or that warm feel with no creepy crawlies
Link not working
They used to do a big party tent, cheap, with or without the sides. Unfortunately nothing else comes up on a search now.
I've got the Colemans event dome, bit lighter than the shelter. Great bit of kit for camping & outdoor events. Totally different league to these things & price bracket at around £200 by the time you've bought all the sides ect. At £15 this does the job imo. Horses for courses i suppose. (y)
Not 50£ but we had a "colemans event shelter" at Glastonbury. It survived torrential rain and strong wind! £100~
First time trip = 2nd hand tent with very little use, you’ll be surprised how many buy a tent bundle brand new and then don’t like camping! Loads available on the likes of eBay and Shpock
Thank you so much for that reply, (embarrassed)
2 man tents are perfect as long as you don't bend your knees and sleep on your side ;)
Why not this one?. Vango are an OK brand. The tent is about the right size for 4. You may be concerned about creepy crawlies but the sleeping areas have sewn in groundsheets. You are also going to need to purchase cooking equipment, sleeping bags, possibly a roof box (to cram everything in). You don’t want to spend all your money on a tent and have little left to buy the other stuff to make life comfortable Lidl/Aldi do ok camping gear. If you are on a budget, look at second hand. Some people are selling their perfectly good tents to buy air ones (Outwell Montana is a good sturdy family tent) Lots of reviews and helpful advice on UKcampsite.co.uk ( its also a good site to find campsite reviews). Most important bit of advice I have is camp on a site right next to a beach. Keeps the kids occupied for hours and hours and hours.....whilst you sit there on the beach peacefully slurping a cup of tea enjoying the wonderful views.
What ever you buy it's always worth getting a footprint, or making one out of a tarpaulin! ... It makes packing up so much easier, when we used to pack ours away we would spend half an hour wiping the underneath of the groundsheet to rid it of worm casts, grass, damp etc to ensure that it didn't contact the sides of the tent when we folded it up & would be in tip top condition for the next time, a footprint does away with this OCD type stuff as all the worm casts etc are on the footprint which you can fold up and pack away in 20 seconds and wash/wipe at your leisure ...
Footprint back in stock at £24 https://m.millets.co.uk/product/grey-eurohike-buckingham-elite-8-footprint/009708/
I've bought this last year in the sale for camping this year, am still yet to get it out the pack and have it up (weather hasn't been kind this year!) There is a video on the YouTube to show you around it, sorry I cannot give you a buyer used review though guys :|
thanks more4 great price shame its oos you got a bargain there tho. (y)
On Monday I bought for £209 from Millets on Ebay Apologies for not posting it https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/New-Eurohike-Buckingham-Elite-8-Man-Tent-Camping-Outdoor-Shelter-Green/183105805394 Delivered 48 hours later in it's brand new and sealed box Been looking for it's own footprint but currently out of stock May well tarp it
I haven’t purchased it however blacks is a leading tent selling website that was enough for me.
Do any of the shops display the tents
Hot from me although looking for a decent price on the 6XL, but going to hang out at least for another year with my Outwell Montana 6. We have the normal Berghaus Air 4 for short breaks and cannot fault it. I've found the only problem if you have a smaller garden is drying the tents with the integrated floors as at least with the old type I can dry the min part in the conservatory and other parts at the back of the living room.
A lot of tent for the money. :D
Hey good idea lol. We need somewhere to store our clothes can’t just leave them in the bag or in a corner :p
Wardrobe? WTF- take both tents and your butler can stay in the old one! :D
Which groundsheets are good to be seen in?
Terrible tents, they don't fit flush to the floor so the wind just blows in and up the sides, buy cheap, buy twice, get something with a seen in groundsheet.
Don't put it up if it's gonna rain. ....simples! Pure summer tent or light bit of rain, should be OK.
1500 HH, good luck staying dry in that
Nice price - thanks @zgaguska :)
Thank you..went for the tent .. and few other bits. First time camping with kids this year.
Cheers Op, double and a single ordered. (y) heat added
Thanks OP, copped 2 doubles (1 deluxe) went through Topcashback but may be a conflict with existing code, still worth a try ;) Heat added. (y)
Good Find (y)
I got one of these last year, it’s a brilliant tent, well made & huge inside. Absolute bargain (y)
No groundsheet in the porch area is a shame
I bought one last year, only used it for a bit of weekend camping but was impressed with the quality and it is easy to erect. Good HH for the price too.
I think this is the same as our regatta tent. Had it a few years now and has been fine, even on the north west coast of Scotland.
why would 4 men sleep together in a tent anyway (ninja) should be fine for family with two small kids.
Ok so you return it, what do you think they do with it, make trousers out of it for all the hard working elf’s at the North Pole
No such thing as landfill after first use. Not that I'm condoning buying this tent, clearly not very good. But sale of goods act, "not fit for purpose" is your friend.
Rule of thumb : whatever it says it sleeps deduct 2 from it . These tent companies think that ppl sleep cuddling each other without bending their knees.
If the tents just for you this seems a good buy at £64 for a 4 man tent using the code Easter20 https://m.millets.co.uk/product/green-eurohike-ribble-400-4-person-tent/025771/
Yes I was tempted too but not after reading the reviews.
Cheap ass tat. Done even bother. Just look at the amazon reviews.
For a moment I thought the tent was marketed by these guys https://youtu.be/JWY_8ASwYNY
cute! great find
No. It's just a toy. It won't protect you from the elements in any meaningful way, and it's too small for all but small children to sleep in.
Not a serious tent, but a good price for something to be pegged out for fun (children and sunny festivals).
The hydrostatic head (level of waterproofing) is 1500mm according to this site: https://www.outdoormegastore.co.uk/easy-camp-funster-pop-up-tent-black-and-green.html
Just ensure you leave the hose aimed at the tent soaking it all night long for that realistic camping experience. (y)
Perfect timing My girls have been buzzing recently at the talk of us going camping together for the first time (since they were born) as a family These will be fun out the back garden and will prepare them for the real deal in the big tent come the nicer weather Bought 1 of each colour Thanks
I think it's called dogging :p but obviously i would have my car there too for that
Surely if you could attract 5 women to share a tent with you, you wouldn't actually need to camp at all...
"Waterproof in heavy rain throughout Europe with taped seams - 3000mm hydrostatic head with fully taped seams on the flysheet and groundsheet and a rain hood to prevent leaks." Heat added. (y)
6 man tent :o I prefer 1 man and 5 women tent (y)
Talking of mistakes have you heard this cock-up by the voice over artist in the promo video https://youtu.be/YnXXudwS2SA?t=29 ? Maybe abrasive is written with an 'f' in her copy?
Totally agree that pump in the video looks ridiculous! anybody know the type of valve on the tent or if the pump for the two man is any smaller?
I guess these are OK if you're the type to drive a car to your field/campsite. Wouldn't like carrying that massive pump around on proper hikes though!
I think their copy writer is getting mixed up or something is getting lost in translation. Found this on the Quechua website: What is the difference in the waterproof properties of a tent with a “2000 mm column of water” rating and a tent that passes a shower test of 200 L of water per hour per m²? One rating measures the waterproof properties of a fabric whereas the other measures the waterproof properties of the entire tent. Indeed, it’s possible to make a tent that will leak in many places through the seams and poorly designed openings with a fabric that can bear a 10,000 mm column of water or a perfectly waterproof tent with a fabric that has a 1000 mm rating. This is what we have been verifying for many years using our shower laboratory that checks the waterproof sealing of our tents (and those of others!). The column of water in millimetres or Schmerber mm ratings are not therefore a good indicator for measuring the waterproof properties of an entire tent… they only measure the waterproof properties of the fabric. The Quechua tents are designed and developed to stop any water getting through the seams, flats, openings, zips, etc. Their waterproof properties are tested and validated under laboratory conditions. The purpose of these tests is to demonstrate the waterproof properties of the entire tent, not just the fabric of the flysheet. The tents are placed under a shower that pours 200 L of water per hour and per square metre for a period of 4 hours. This level of rainfall is equivalent to about twice that of a European storm for a period of 4 hours; and our fabrics have a minimum rating of 2000 mm.
Under product benefits it clearly says "waterproof" 200mm. They can't make up their mind so for that reason, I am out.
I’ll expire it
Happened to be in my local Halfords and they had the all blue version for £29. Asked for 10% off and they obliged. Every little helps http://www.halfords.com/camping-leisure/camping/tents/halfords-4-man-vis-a-vis-tent-light-blue
I saw his and waited. Sold out now in most places. Gutted
Am off to download with one of these, in you're experience how well do these hold up?
Depends if you're into that sort of thing I guess brs98 (lol)
4 man tent? Sounds like a gay ol' time.
Thanks OP. In stock here (dunstable) reserved one :)
It looks like a huge cadbury creme egg
lol.. The trick is to spoil them when they are two and not twenty :)
If she's anything like my daughter, it won't work. No amount of presents will change the fact she thinks I have funny hair and a stinky bum. She wouldn't even appreciate it if I personally dropped it off at her front door at uni.
They sell a similar one at Ikea for £13 if you happen to be near one: http://www.ikea.com/gb/en/products/childrens-ikea-products/children-3-7/small-furniture/cirkustält-childrens-tent-art-80342052/
