Very tempted to try camping (long time since my youth time camp'g). I think I would like to try either a combi-camper or camp-let. Is there much differerenct between them? any advice welcomed.

Each have advantages.

The Camplet has to be completely erected, including the awning, whereas a Combi can be used with or without the awning. Also, it depends on what age of unit you are thinking of as they have changed over the years, e.g. new Camplets have gas assisted struts to make opening easier (older ones were really a two person job unless you were strong and fairly tall, whereas a Combi can be done by one person); new Combis from about 2000 have a permanently fixed kitchen on the back, older ones either didn't have them or they were on the drawbar and had to be moved when setting up.

I prefer the Combi Camp and have owned two older units, so I'm biased.

If you can't see the light at the end of the tunnel, just keep going till you go round the bend.

Thanks, have checked out the 'videos' showing both these items being erected. Inclined to look for a combi, obviously at the right price.

hi we had combi camp easy and found it a nice piece of kit we also had the awning  which we feel you need if staying for more than one night and it goes to say that when erecting awning it does take time.we now have a camplet concorde and must admit i prefer the camplet as it is very easy to erect and awning is all one unit  .the price of each unit may decide one to make up ones mind  but at end of day you only get what you pay for, hope this was helpfull.
