There is a pretty good Tent display at Yeomans in the Garden Centre nr Wigan just off Jct 27 of the M6, called in there on Friday - Outwell, Vango & Coleman, cant remember all the models but up on gravel so no muddy feet & all tents very clean & tidy.

Enjoyed our trip to Casey's today. Really interested to see the Airbeams, what problems have people had with them?


There's tons of issues, leaking, blown tubes etc.

We thought Vango had sorted them out but alas no.

Here's the thread:

Carolina M is an awesome sized tent for a 3 birth, Everytime we saw it we were impressed by the living space, I can't understand why Outwell discontinued it this year. Just read the reviews, thats why I always recommend it.

I dont think Robens have made any changes to their tents this year, maybe added 1 or 2.

If anyone else goes to a display, store etc try to list on here whats on display, gives others in the area a good idea if they want to see a certain tent.

Ok then, Casey's Chester had 4 different Airbeams, then one I liked was the Infinity 600.

Other tents they had there that I liked...

Kampa Carbis 5, Kampa Croyde 6, Vango Calisto 400.

They had a Bear Lake, A big Cabanon, and a Robens (I think)

Made a change for me to see some different makes that I've read about on here, as I live in Gelert dominated N.Wales.

We liked a windbreak by Outwell called the Windscreen Lux too

Went to Snowdonia Adventure by Caernarfon today, they just had a Gelert Horizon 8 and a 4 up out the front. (on offer at £200 and £150 respectively). I asked about the usual display and they haven't bothered this year because of thefts.
