Anyone selling a tent? by Duncan

Not quite sure whether to buy one, as I'm not sure what to do at the July Nano. I have a smallish tent already, but if I stay fancy a bit more comfort than crawling into a small tent.

Was prompted by seeing a larger tent for sale locally, that seems to be sold now. Seen a few on fleabay too and some have a decent area for sitting / talking if you don't use all the bedroom sections.

So, anyone selling something? Not promising to buy anything yet, but let me know if you do have something to sell.

If all else fails, halfords have some cheap deals on. This one for example.

Thanks for the link, Mick.

Having done some digging, no need to buy a big one, Outwell do a 3 man that still has standing height and a sitting area. Just need one to come up at a decent price.

Thanks for that link. Not heard of this brand, but might find out more about them.

So far, favouring Outwell or Vango. I know Vango of old, and still have a Mk3, however that's a crawl in and out tent so not what I'm after!

Thanks, but secured one on the bay of fleas last evening, and sorry about the circumstance that sees you wanting to sell. Gone for a sunncamp elan 200. I would have been tempted by your Wynnster if that hadn't happened.

I have some camping stuff from my youth, plus we do have a 'van, though we can't use it as it takes two to maneouvre it and my wife has had shoulder surgery recently. However there will be some bits and pieces that might be useful, and as others on here also tend to stay over at some events, it might be worth your listing them in the 'for sale' section.

If that's all that is stopping you using the c@ravan Duncan, I'll come over and hitch it up with you and also assist when you take it home.

Thanks for the offer, but it requires a few maneouvres. Need to get it out of the storage shed and on to the drive to prepare it, then rehitch for the Nano, and so on. If I knew it were ready to go, I'd take you up on the offer!

The offer is there regardless Duncan. If you want to get the van to your drive prior to the meet, then happy to pop over and assist as well.

Not sure how local you are, but are you coming to the Nano?

Could you tell me how much you want for the hook up, and a few details on the cooler box?

Sorry for not replying sooner. I'll have the hook up from you (if my delay doesn't mean you've sold it), it will be perfect for using with my generator which has the blue socket. See you at the Nano to sort out?
