Tents & Camping Equipment

Options
Hi everyone,

havent been on here in a while. Just a bit of industry insider news (benefits of working in an outdoor shop) if you're into camping most prices of tents have risen from the manufacturers this year so expect price increases.

Pick up deal tents where possible and there's a few places with sales on at the moment.

Blacks and Millets usually have something going off, Decathlon too

Ive said before i work for GO in the underbelly (warehouse) and IMO the best deal we've got at the moment is this:

Nice family tent.

Anyone got any other deals to throw out? I go camping quite a bit so it'd be interesting to see what comes up as a grabbit

    Go Outdoor is brilliant, I went there last year to buy new camping equipment. I bought many things and could have easier bought more, even the clothes section is great. I would definatly go there every time,even though I got lost on the way ..
    I have started entering competitions, lets see If I can win

    You shouldn't need any more than a 1500 for the UK if it's just standard holiday camping

    I would be interested if anyone can find a good deal on the below sun canopies, I can't find them cheaper than £50.


    Outwell Side Canopy


    Khyam Universal Sun Canopy


    It is to fit a Gelert Quebec 8+4, Gelert dont do one for this tent but I believe these will fit my tent. Unless anyone can suggest another?


    Thanks

    Not exactly a new variation on the Shakespeare line - that was on the fence of a local camping store in Cheshire every winter sale for years from about the mid 1990's.
