Location: Devon Added: 27/07/2014 Price: £ 900.00
Manufacturer: Other Sleeps: 7+ Year: 2012
Large 5x5m, 25m2 classic poly-cotton tent by German brand Scoutdoor - made in Czech Republic. Typical German attention to detail and quality. Model is Yukatan XL.
Used for less than 14 nights. Clean.
This is not a modern style tent but a classic, traditional style tent which looks and feels the part.
Purchased in 2012 from Mark Royal at thecottontentcompany.co.uk which is now diejurte.com. Originally cost £1010.00 plus £50 delivery. Please visit their sites to get the full description.
PLEASE NOTE: we also have a Windy Smithy 6kw Arthur stove, custom made by Jon with a rear output for tent installation is also available. New and unused - with all the flue pipes needed for use with this tent.
My girlfriend and I purchased it as we were moving to SW France for 6 months+ to help a friend build a house. In the end, we rented a village flat instead and the tent has gone unused. Less than 14 nights total use. As there are only 2 of us, it is wasted on us. 7 nights camping on clean, dry ground. Hosted my fathers retirement celebration dinner inside with 16 seated guests!
Heavy duty 420g/m2 50/50 Poly-Cotton canvas material. Soulpad or other bell-tents are made from only 285g/m2 material. This poly-cotton is superior (most p/cotton tents are 70/30 poly-cotton) has it has all the durability of poly, with the weather resistance of cotton. It has been properly proofed (soaked, not sprayed or painted) and the proofing should last 20+ years before needing another treatment. The tent itself will last a lifetime if properly dried before storage.
This weight of fabric will easily extend your camping season from October to May, especially with a stove.
It has a 2m high door (no stooping) and 1m high side walls. Bell tents only have 60cm high walls, for example. So youre getting the most usable floor space available. It has steel vertical poles all around the perimeter, and one supporting the door, as well as a 3.10m high centre pole. The main guy pegs are 12 steel Y-pegs and the shelter will easily shrug off very, very bad weather. The ground skirt is polyester, coated on both sides, and 450g/m2. Very heavy duty.
Sleeps 15-20 people plus kit if youre Scouting or it would be palatial for a very large family when car camping.
To give an idea, we test erected it before leaving for France and put the following items inside without it being overly cramped - double bed plus bedside tables, small 3-seater sofa, coffee table, floor lamp, small fridge, desk and chair... and there was still one corner that was nearly totally unused!
We used it w/out a groundsheet, but you could easily have a smaller groundsheet covering the back half the tent to accommodate a large sleeping area and have the front half as a dining/lounging/cooking area.
2 large gauze windows and covering flap which securely ties up or down. Great ventilation if needed.
Please email if interested and Ill forward you to a full-write up, with 30+ photos.
Thanks. Matt, Tiverton, Devon.
