im not concerned about site fees or additional costs, i dont think you can put a price on your families safety.




It's not an either/or, there are plenty of ways of ensuring safety without having to pay extra site fees. It is important that whilst we get information across to campers that we don't scare people unnecessarily.

The OR used to get good reviews a few years ago when it first came out - many have moved from utilities to extensions in recent years. I would also go without a SIG, you don't need the warmth and it's better to have something free draining to avoid the GS getting slippery if things are spilt thus creating another hazard.

Hi piglet,

Not sure where you are coming from re the groundsheets. Many tents now are either SIG or ZIG which mean you can't erect the tent without the groundsheet. Our Cabanon Biscaya has a ZIG and its such an integral part of the tent its impossible to erect without it.

If you keep the floor well mopped and clean I don't see there is a problem. Attached photo I called " who says camping is roughing it". 

The original OP is concerning carbon monoxide poisoning which is really a common sense thing. Don't put any kind of fossil fuel heating (barbeque fuel, log fires etc) anywhere near your tent in the night and there is no problem.

John

Good choice FamilyCampers5. Hope it works as well for you as it has for us.
