Got a diablo 600 and used it very successfully for 2 summers in France.

But would like more porch space and wider porch opening.

The Outwell Vermont looks pretty good, but I have no experience with tunnels.

Worried about single skin condensation etc.

Does anyone have any advice. Plus wehre can I see a vermon up near Nottingham?

Thanks for the replies in advance!

I am tempted by the look of the vermont front opening and the ability to pitch outer first. Not sure I can really justify the spend on a new Diablo just for a few tweaks.

Got a Montana 6. No problems with the condensation loads of ventilation that you can control and decide with which to open. Easy to put up. The vermont is only one extra pole across, we also had the extra front canopy. So rather than canopy i prefer to have tent space instead, I have also orderd the vermont xl. Based exactly on the Monty slighty wider by 800mm and longer. Cannot really justify the expense, but then why should I. I like the way the whole front opens. Good for cooking and shade. The extras you can get as well gives a little more choice. Would always recommend the footprint groudsheet. My Monty is 2 years old and it is still spotless.

All The Best.

Get Bear Lake, has a large conopy and being pollycotton, you would not have to worry so much about condensation (not that I got it in my Montana anyway) and would be cooler when the days are hot.

Blacks were selling them off at 400, which seemed like a good price.

Now I am confused. Bear lake versus Vermont! Oh no will this torture never end?

So if readers have got this far, it's now Bear Lake vs Vermont!

Guidance please!
