    Mehler Camping?

    Does anyone know anything about a (I think German) firm called Mehler Camping?

    We picked up a proper canvas frame tent locally last week, purely because it was very very cheap and we can't resist a bit of canvas but the seller didn't know what it was. I've had a scadge at it today and found a label which says Mehler Camping.

    Found this as on a German website https://m.ebay-kleinanzeigen.de/s-an...3#&gid=1&pid=1

    Which appears to be the same tent as ours but haven't been able to find any other details

      Thanks for that, very interesting. Are they a well known tent brand on the continent? It is a lovely looking tent and in great condition but we won't have a lot of use for it

            It does say Stromeyer on the label as well. It's a nice thing anyway, someone will want it

              Well, after much umm-ing and ah-ing about the possibility of turning my Skoda estate into a micro-camper, I eventually opted for a tent. It's a really...
