they had the yellowstone falls and the Kauai reef at Caseys in Chester a month or so back. Even when you take the wardrobe out of the yellowstone tent you have a funny toggle on the floor which we didn't like. And at the high price it would have to be perfect!!!

I'm sat in waiting for the FedEx van to arrive. After several weeks of UK camping this summer in a Coleman Mackenzie cabin 6 we decided to blow a wad on a new tent and opted for the Yellowstone. Paid 1070 from Yeomans.

The crazy thing is it is an unseen purchase, but I've done as much research as one can and it looks to be a sensible choice. We were looking at a Wolf Lake 6 for about 750 but were put off by the open canopy, would make cooking a drag in the wind and rain. Primarily, we wanted more space, quieter and more stable in wind and rain, hopefully a little cooler in the sun, and less propensity to leak and allow water to drop onto our heads in heavy rain.

Havent bought the footprint or carpets yet, as they are a crazy price, and I'm thinking I'll see what else I can find

Wow, that's a fantastic tent you have bought, we were pitched next to one in August.

You seem to have got it at a good price too, well done and enjoy!!

hi tracy, congratulations on your final choice! we also have the bear lake with the front and side extensions. its a great tent and i hope you have many happy camping trips with it.

just to let you know, we bought the side extension too. i dont know that 2nd time around i would buy the side extension again. it only has 1 useful purpose and thats to let you use the side entrance in the rain without getting wet taking shoes clothes etc off as you get into the tent and it stops the rain running down the tent roof and into the tent through the open side door.

we had ideas of cooking in it etc, but its way too shallow for that, its only just over a metre deep so in wet windy weather, anything stored in there gets wet!

just thought would let you know about the limited usefulness of the side extension before you rush out to buy one!
