Hello all, We are off to the south of France later this year. I was originally planning on doing the drive in one hit, but as time goes by Iím starting to think itís unrealistic. So Iím currently planning on booking a campsite for a night (somewhere around clermont-ferrad). Iím sure a hotel would be more straightforward but my logic is thereíll be more for the kids (7 & 9) to do so they should be able to burn off some energy, I wonít have to worry about the security of my trailer and weíll, itís supposed to be a camping holiday!
Problem is that I really donít fancy putting up our tent for one night, so Iím considering buying something that I can pitch quickly. Criteria is that it needs to be quick to pitch, not overly bulky and can accommodate 2 x 70cm air beds and 2 x 76cm sims.
I was originally thinking about the Quechua 4.1 air tent, reason being it could also be used for weekend camps, but the bedroom isnít quite wide enough. The next size up feels like itís too big, and wouldnít really save much in terms of effort to pitch.
So Iím now leaning towards getting a couple of small 2/3 man tents. I like the look of the Quechua 2 second tent, although itís not quite wide enough. The 3 man version at £200 each feels bit too pricy.
Has anyone done something similar before. Can anyone recommend any tents to consider?
