Dk,
We bought some solar lanterns for our last trip & attached them to the rain cover using small clothes pegs & have seen some people use mini stationary clips.

Not sure if Gazrow had eyelets fitted or maybe used clingons ?

Eyelets in both the pod door and awning door.

Allows me to sit in the breeze, yet avoid the seagull bomber squadrons. :-)

Hi Gazrow
did you do this yourself or have it done at Karsten when they made the tent ?

You'd never believe it, but the tent is used and the eyelets were already in place.

I'd put money on them originating at the factory. (But not a lot). :-)

THIS LINK will show you the price.

They have two that you can hire out.
Not sure on sizes or the exact set up they have but could be worth a phone call to see what they have could be a money saving exercise in the long term.
As you are looking at spending a lot of money, might be worth just spending a couple of nights in one seeing how a basic pod and awnings does/doesn't work for you.

Might be easier to make the choice then!
Just a thought.

Cheers

Ian



You are not as daft as you look, my friend!
Although I was aware of this site, and the fact they had a couple of Karstens, for some reason, I had it in my head they were a little further away than what they actually are!

Anyway, a couple of emails later, and I have confirmation that they have 2 x 350's (1 with CA, 1 without).... PERFECT!!

Just need to find a free weekend in August now, which isn't as easy as it sounds! :-(
Thanks for kicking me up the a*5e, Ian... just what I needed!   


Latest update for us...
I've had the list off James.
We're now looking at trimming a couple of grand off it, as being totally OTT and frivolous (280 for a bedroom, mainly, but with added extras/colour changes etc)
Should leave us with a 350, CA, EA, FFW, RA, the odd extra window, the odd colour change, blah, blah, blah.

Likely scenario is to put the order in on September 1st if only to prove that not only am I the sensible sort, but patient too!! (Not sure exactly who I'm proving that to, in all honesty, but prove it I will! )
A long wait deep into winter, but I already feel like "One of the gang"!!

Just hope we can get this trial weekend in now... and that we can fit everything in comfortably!!

Fingers crossed!
