I have a leben aachen tent, despite some reviews I think its a great tent as does what it says on the tin (as they say)
Anyway the ground sheet is good but I want something softer under my feet, something that will keep the cold out (ish) any recommendations???? The inside of the main bit of the tent is 400x370cm if that helps.
Cheers in advance guys xx

A lot of people use cheap picnic blankets as tent carpeting. You can often pick them up cheaply in budget supermarkets (Aldi, Lidl, etc) or in the 'bargain bucket' at motorway services.

Old (or very cheap) sleeping bags are good for insulation but tend to slide around over the groundsheet unless you tie or velcro the corners. In the recent Go Outdoors sale, I picked up a couple of very lightweight ('summer only') sleeping bags for two quid each to use as tent floor coverings.

You can also use flattened corrugated card boxes (free from any supermarket) to add insulation under the groundsheet - the card gets damp but you just bin it when you leave the site.

A couple of years ago on this very forum someone was singing the praises of carpet underlay. Find yourself a friendly carpet fitter and get an offcut or two.........

for the colder months, I take 2 strips of vetbed (nice and fluffy) for the bedroom pod.  (A bit of luxury underfoot.)  Use picnic rugs in the living area.

Hello Luise.
             I use decorators sheets purchased from a local Sunday Market.

They are 4*3 metres polythene backed cotton twill, 5 GBP each, and work a treat.

Regards James

Hi Louisem143, Well done we have a Leben Uuna, and it to is a great little tent. I have used the silver on one side, underlay meant for laminate flooring, inside most of my tents, it stops most of the cold and moisture whilst adding a little comfort underfoot as well. It only comes in four foot width though, so parcel tape works for that, slice it off and fold it up at the end of your jollies. lies flat in the boot of the car as well.

Those Outwell carpets are real nice underfoot, we have one in the living area Minesota 6 me thinks, and the Wolf Lake 5 for the bedroom, they fit just perfect in our Biscaya 370.

I have a big roll of that under laminate flooring, which I intend to cut into different sizes for different tents. I think it'll fold up really neatly, much neater than a tent carpet or picnic rugs.

I find picnic rugs get ruched up, especially if you scoot a chair closer to the table for example, and the whole rug comes too. I'd like to get a dedicated tent carpet for my tent, but it's not really that high on my list of priorities at the moment.
