Well our 3 summer camps went great in the Gelert Atlantis 4. However I may have been a little conservative with the size in panicking about putting it up alone. Also when it rains, it rains in when you have the door open as the front door has quite a slope and when it has been raining and you unzip the door, it falls in along with puddles of water!
I was thinking of getting an extension for it but the canopy/porch for both this and the hi gear rock 4 (same tent apparently), is open ended and has no door - something I didn't realise when I bought the tent. The Gelert one is longer than the hi gear but is nearly twice the price everywhere I can find it at the moment and more than I paid for the tent at £120.
So, will it matter if there is no door on the canopy? I think the hi gear one will be to short to be of much benefit (though it would still solve my raining in problem) so it will be a case of trying to get the gelert one cheaper and keeping a look out.
If I want a door, then maybe I need a different tent... If I get a bigger tent, do I still need the porch...? Decisions decisions!
As usual not wanting to spend a fortune and looking for a bargain!
I really like the idea of having an extension area to put shoes and a kitchen (also on my shopping list) as this would mean I could get a carpet for the living area and not be walking in the muck/wet!
Off to do a bit more research - any thoughts? Anyone spotted any great bargains as we reach the end of the camping season?
Can't wait for spring
