No it isn't Karsten but it is a Dutch brand and James said they do not sell in the UK if I remember correctly

I will definitely be cooking dinner most nights when i am away in May and porridge most mornings. As mentioned in my previous post i had a window fitted in the C/A as this is where i will site the hob, will be leaving the foil off this window when i cook.

I have cooked in both a cabanon venus trailer tent and a cabanon antigua(both canvas) with no condensation problems. They both had a thick plastic window where you cook that you can unzip leaving a mesh window for ventilation. Neither of these tents/trailer tents had a SIG or ZIG but i used to use the 'old' brown plastic ground sheets so probably not a great deal of additional ventilation aside from the window.

TBH Puplebean due to these past experiences i'd never really thought/worried about the prospect of cooking in the Karsten. I shall find out in May

Just wanted to add. One of the reasons for me buying the Karsten was because it was a bit of a pain keep stepping outside the Guadeloupe( if the weather was rotten) to cook under one of the 'wings'.The rain always seems to be driving the wrong way! I thought i could stay nice and snug cooking inside the Karsten and hopefully that will prove to be the case.

I am not concerned about cooking in the awning but might just use the pod in winter and am not so sure about cooking in there

Sorry i do see what you mean but i'm not intending using the C/A without the front wall, so will be enclosed still. I'm sure cooking in the pod will be fine with ventilation.

Ever the optimist!

Hi All, good weather and RAC 750 arrived so put tent up again. All went fairly well, pod up in about 7-8 mins. Gauge on RAC 350 not very accurate, showing 4 bar when only 3 (according to my pressure gauge.)
The most difficult thing, when taking down, was the indexed pole for the comfort awning. It was very difficult to separate the poles due to the tightness of the index studs. Has anyone else experienced similar problems.
A few pics below of our Karsten plus our Karsten chest.
