After much deliberation and procrastination, plus a brief panic when they went out of stock on Obelink, I've now ordered an Eldorado! Can't wait!

Congratulations, I went to Obelink a couple of weeks ago and saw one up and its a really great little tent.

We just bought the Escala 4 and really want to pitch it but the stupid weather keeps getting in the way

Well done to the OP, it is a great little tent!

I thought about going away for a 3-night trip over the early May BH weekend, however, the weather has put me off.

Just hope all the rain will fall during May, leaving the June BH weekend dry, as I am off for a 6-nighter that weekend, can't wait!

Lynne, I would advise you to stay away from camping shops on or off line while you wait to perform your test pitch, or you'll spend more money buying more camping gear!

Haha - too late DK, I've already started buying new storage boxes and things for the Escala. I'm currently searching for material to make carpets and cushions lol  

I'm also keeping myself (and my mum) busy crocheting granny squares to make a new homemade blanket for the bedroom

A crochet blanket... there's an idea! I'm also gathering stuff for flooring etc - new tent needs some new trimmings I think!

Nice, you can't go wrong with an Eldorado. I have one for a couple of years now and i'm still very pleased with it. Planning to buy a larger tunnel tent from them later on this year, has anyone any experience with their Trail or Familia tents?

Just had delivery of a korfu but not had chance to pitch it yet. It looks really good quality and we are very pleased with it.
