    Some new tents are appearing with daylight blocking sleeping compartment fabric, saves you being woken up at 4am when the sun get up. Sewn in groundsheet would be on my list, to stop the bugs crawling up inside from the grass.

    So you'll be camping at Dent next year then?

    If I could take my GSA and my caravan then I would. But I can't. So I won't.

    Could you not strap it on to the caravan roof, you are quite the master when it comes to ratchet straps

    New tent advice needed

    I use a Terra Nova/Wild Country Hoolie 3 - plenty of room, compact pack size and I got it reduced at Cotswold Outdoor for £100 or thereabouts. They also do one with a larger one called the Hoolie 3 etc with an extended porch for even more gear.

    Various footprints also available, although the supplied pegs are a bit weedy.

    Hoolie 3 top photo; Hoolie 3 etc bottom.


    Available on eBay I believe.

    The old traditional Vango Force Ten are a worthwhile alternative to all these ripstop/leakstop/windstop types of new tents. Just sent off the flysheet of my 30yr old Force 10 for repair to Lancashire Sports repair.
