or...

the more likely scenario (I'm too trusting/gullible for my own good!) is that they have an old shabby Karsten for sale, but really can't be ar5ed to set it up and photograph it...

or...

It's a scam, and doesn't even exist.

Regardless of the above, I'd stay well clear for the simple reason that any self respecting and proud owner of a Karsten should already have at least 100 photo's to hand, if not several hundred!
For that reason alone...

I agree. I suspect it'll be a case of 'send me your money and I'll post the tent sometime never'...just hope anyone considering buying will ask to see the tent pitched (my money's on the seller not responding to requests to collect in person).

When we sold our Outwell Harrier in 2015 I pitched it and took loads of photos and stuck it on eBay and gumtree.

Some cheeky so and so used all my photos and created another Harrier listing on Gumtree, so there were 2 on there at the same time with the same set of pics! Theirs was priced a lot less....

I decided to ring the gumtree add and explained politely that they were using my photos for their tent and how it looked dodgy them both being listed with the same pics. To be fair to them, they agreed to change their listing to make it clear the photos were not theirs, which they did follow up and do straight away...

Watermark them and anyway, don't you own the copyright?

Not sure about the legality of ownership of photos when uploaded Skiiddy, but watermarking them would be a sensible precaution. I guess it's just user beware, don't ever upload a pic you would not be comfortable being shared without your permission.

I guess photobucket did me a favour wiping out my photos!

Children have had their own pup tent this year for our French holiday - complete with Karsten Tarp - They love it!

Those tarps look great on mass don't they!

The Mistral Air is the tent rather than the tarp - it's Karstens small inflatable tunnel tent, sleeps 3. Was a bit pricey for the size it offered, maybe that's why they stopped selling them.

I love the look with the little flat front with mesh window and side wings and then sloping FW. There's a window on the back too.

I'm always keeping an eye out for a used sea green and beige one to use for the kids, exactly as James is here, or for me if I go somewhere on my own or with a friend walking
