Our Cabanon "Cotton" 370 Biscaya, is easy to pitch single handed, in fact the instructions, show just the one person, pitching the tent.

The "Cotton" 370 Biscaya has now been replaced by the "Cotton" Awaya 370, which is pretty much the same tent.

The "All Season Polyester" 370 Biscaya is still produced, and would be even less of an effort to pitch single handed than the "Cotton"..

And if you can get hold of a "Polyester Rip Stop Nylon" 370 Biscaya, that would be super easy to pitch, alas no longer manufactured.

thank you to everyone for their ideas. I'm doing my homework on what's best for me. But a big thanks for taking the time to help. It's the first time I have used the message board, I will certainly use it again. Cheers everyone.

i pitch my mojave 5 solo and it's fairly easy. it seems to be the same technique for most of the tunnel tents. peg the 4 corners first to stop it blowing around. raise the back pole and use a couple of guys to hold in place.peg out the back. wor my way down the 2 sides. every time i reach a pole use guys to hold in position. once it's all up go back around to make any neccessary adjustments. to save time i don't remove the bedrooms when i put the tent away, i leave them clipped into position so when i put the tent up they are already in position

I think Camping International were advertising a polyester Biscaya on ebay, recently. No idea if it's still there. Think it was around the 399 mark?
