Not much to review really. The 2013 side extension comes in a holdall with extension, groundsheet, pegs and poles. Putting it up solo is harder than putting up the actual tent. It really needs two people to position correctly and to drag the cowl over the top of the tent. It also causes an unsightly fankle at the corners where it meets the tent. In future I won't use the tent guys at those points.
The extension has a large zipped end door and windows all round and there is enough room for a table and four chairs. Quality is fine with no dodgy stitching and it is stable when up.
It turns the Wichita twin from a weekend tent into a tent for longer use. Pity the extension is teal whilst the tent is blue but my tent is a 2012 model so this may explain it.

An add-on side awning means Wichita Twin owners can vastly increase the living area of their tent, at the same time keeping it all fully enclosed – all as and when needed. Angled poles maintain overall rigidity, whilst curtains at each of the large side windows help with privacy. It all connects easily to the main tent. Flysheet: 190T 100% polyester PU coated.
