Hi mankymanning, you haven't got long to wait now.
You will have to get some photos asap as we are a nosy bunch & love looking at photos.

Seen the door zip mentioned a few times now .... i maybe will look into using a velcro fastening on the bottom of the door ..but 1st will see how we go without.

Good luck with the sale of you other tent we sold our large tent cpl weeks ago will miss it but so looking forward to getting our Karsten.

Maddie

Ok may be a stupid question but is the velcro fastening not standard on the door then? If it is then you wouldn't need more but if it isn't - lucky me!

Mine has Velcro on the door as well, and it's noisier than zips! I'd prefer a zip, but how would that work from the inside, as it overlaps on the outside? Not sure how it could be done up from the inside?

...ahh, do you mean the front wall door? As in a zip to the zig? Or the pod door?

Hi mankymanning,

We ordered on the first Friday of the recent Karsten display (25/04), i.e. just over 3 weeks ago, and had a call from James today to say it was now in and we are expecting delivery on Wednesday this week.    Can't wait and am hoping to use this coming weekend (though if the weather is as wet as forecast over the next few days and we don't get to have a trial run at home first we may bottle it and stick to our trusty Coleman MacKenzie cabin for this weekend!!).

Hopefully yours won't be too far behind!!

Dave

Unfortunately I am off visiting friends this weekend but have just managed to snag the last electric pitch for the weekend after at a site not too far away.

I think we will be attempting a pitch in a friends' garden before then.

Nice one .
Lucky you for getting a very unexpected, very welcome delivery tomorrow. I'm sure once you have your tent you wont be able to resist a trial pitch

So jealous of you all getting your new tents ...oh well just over 3 weeks to the arrival of ours !

Maddie not so patiently waiting

Thanks maddie!
I was hoping it was going to come in time, so may try and get away for the night on sunday.
Can't get before then as helping the inlaws to move house on saturday.
If not I'll try and squeeze it onto the garden to take some pictures.
It might just fit as it's 4 m wide and the tents 3.5m
