We camped 3 times last year in an outwell MaineL purchase at a discounted price as OH was unsure if he would like camping. Generaly the tent worked well but with 3 of us, we found we had a lack of living space when it rained! So spend Saturday looking at tents. (PJ St Albans) [Wanted to see a Delaware 5 - as seen a package deal tent + foot print + both carpets £1k].
They had a Delaware 5, Vermont XLP, Lake Wolf 7 and Bear lake 4.
I love the polycottons - but are a bit unsure about weathering/possible leaks. I like the Bear 6, OH likes the Wolf 5 becasue the canopy goes to the floor. Was surprise on how light the Delaware was. Vermont (like layout) concerned about overall lenght. My heads say keep the size to 5m by 7m as the maximum. This rules out the Vermont.
I hoped seeing the tents would help make the decision easier but it seem to have got worse. Any advice.
