    I've got a Vango Tempest 200 - £20 off ebay because the little ground sheet for the porch area is missing :ohmy:. Sometimes in summer I'll take my DD tarp and Frontline hammock.
    When me and MrsR go together we take an Omega 350, split between us.

    Got a cheap 2 man Hellfrauds job that is actually pretty decent, and a 6 berth Vango. I enjoy camping when the weather is agreeable, more so thatpn caravaning.

    Laser Competition 860g - super lightweight super expensive and great providing its not windy,

    And then there was this - Super cheap, Argos pro-action, thingk it was less than £20, it was highly recommended so I thought I would give it a go, it is may be 1.5kg but a much much sturdier tent than the super expensive one. May be the best tent I have ever owned. wildcamp_1451.jpg

    6 berth Vango for family use. Had it for about 7 years and it's still going strong despite being kept in a big galvanised storage box in the garden.

    No longer have a hiking tent since I lost it last year! On the lookout for a new one, but in no rush before Spring.

    Not a huge fan of camping but I have enjoyed the time spent in a tent.

    Err does a huge Outwell Montana count :blush:. We usually go for walks when we are camping, especially as campsites are normally in or near fantastic places! We probably need to downside now the kids are all but grown up!

    This is ours.


    We only started camping this year as a result of a challenge. We didn’t have a clue what we were doing.

    We tried out in Devon for a couple of days then we went on a mini tour of France and Germany and camped at four sites. It was supposed to be five but one of them was horrible it looked like a shantytown.

    We have a Quechella 4 man tent from Decathlon for about 190 quid. The first night we put it up, we had just got everything up and settled and an almighty thunder storm kicked off. But the tent was brilliant, not a drop of water came in. We put the kettle on and let it pass.

    There was a bloke across the way in a one man tent sheltering from the storm with a big umbrella over the entrance to keep the rain out.

    I'm thinking of getting one of those bivvies with the arch opening for a spot of wild camping.

    I’m too much of a scaredy-cat to do that.

    Vango banshee 100 (tiny!) and an ancient 4 man frame tent (huge!).

    I have a terra nova super quasar in a nice red colour. This replaced a previous worn out quasar. Both have been bullet proof even in winds over 80 mph. Loads of head room inside and massive for two. Managed to get three in there with a squeeze...
    Also very quick to put up, even after rolling out of the Warren House Inn...
