My main 2 tents are a Vango Maritsa which is large and bulky and used for longer stays---so it is known as the "big tent". We use a Vango Beta 350 for short/weekend stays as it is small and easy to carry.I call it the "humpy tent" The Mrs.isnt amused Cant see what the problem is????

Our Vango got nick named the Bungalow a few years ago by some friends.


Although it looks tiny in that photo, we had 15+ people in there.

Esther - the Cabanon Estoril a real lady.

Raymondo the Outwell Monterey - definitely a male tent for some reason, and 'The Bed and Breakfast Tent' (Mark III) - a Halfords Osaki budget for, guess what, overnight stops.

'Dartford' - the Sunncamp tunnel tent is long past, as is the 'Mighty Atom' - in reality a small 2-man creepy crawly in thing.

We only had girl names. When the midwife put him in my arms I said "I don't believe it, it's a boy"

He was called "short stuff" for 11 days

I imagine he'll thank you for that, when you relate this tale to his girlfriend(s)!
