    My "temporary "set up

    Another new section to post on.........cheers Graham!!

    Well after selling my much loved Bongo last year and still suffering from "camping pangs" I decided to get sorted out with a tent as a short term fix.I had never bought a tent before so I was a bit in the dark with the subject.I only had a few requirements with one.....easy to erect.......big enough for two.....and looks nice.Oh and I wanted something a bit different....if there is such a thing with a tent.I ended up with a Coleman McKenzie Cabin 4.Having bought it a bit blind I think I did quite well,its been out 3 times do far this year and I must say I am delighted with it.being a "soft" camper I also bought the footprint groundsheet (for protection underneath) and the carpet for inside,Im pretty well made up with how its worked out so much so I have suspended my plans for a new van till next year now.....Im quite enjoying living under canvas and even better my Mrs is enjoying it as well,never thought Id hear that!!
    Main problem I have is fitting all the kit and caboodle that goes with it into the boot of a Jag,it does fit but every inch is precision packed!!:so happy:

    anyway a few piccies

    Nice one Dave, glad to see you are still camping. Your tent looks good, they have certainly come on since the last time we had a tent. Nice to hear Mrs. Dabs is enjoying it too.

      Lovely set up, Dabs!

      I was originally a tenter, but you couldn't stand up in mine (except right in the middle) and that was hard work with the back probs. In the end I gave it away to my son. Still miss sleeping under canvas though, there's something about breathing fresh air all night that makes you feel wonderful!

      (and my tent and stuff all fitted into a little ford fiesta! LOL)

        Hi JayJay yes the height was another consideration and I must say I have plenty of headroom in the tent so far its been brilliant.........Id still like a new van though

              That's probably because you managed to get to sleep in the first place.

                Nice to see you on here again Dabs, you have been missed.

                Enjoy your Bongo bash and we look forward to seeing you at a future small motorhome meet, our Spring Meet must be getting near to the sort of numbers you get at Bongo meets, you'll have to give Ian some tips as our meet organiser he will probably be looking for a larger venue next year.
