Hi folks,

Finally got some pics of our new Cabanon Espace 8, we are currently on our second trip with it at Greenhill Leisure Park in Oxfordshire and are so pleased with it, suits our family perfectly and takes no longer to pitch than our other tent.

Not bad at all for 100!

Hope this works....

Wow, what a nice tent and set up, thanks for sharing!

I hope the dog has not claimed the moon chair as his/her own.

Great pics, thanks for sharing.

Why can frame tents like this not become popular again?

I consider them more practical for families than most current tent designs.

That thing is huge! I have to admit that I'm a bit jealous of the space (even though I got my spotless Cabanon Monaco for free!)

Good work on bagging a bargain!

Thanks folks for your very kind words, and yes indeed, the dog takes over the moon chairs, he gets so excited when he knows we are going camping, not least because it is the only time he has a cooked breakfast with us each day!

He certainly fell on his feet when we got him from the rescue kennels

We love this tent, especially the space for eating inside and relaxing, and in reply to beagles pitching was easy as pie, don't know what I was concerned about, and thanks once again for all the tips.

Even though this tent takes up a lot of space in our trailer, the practicality, comfort and space far outweighs that for longer stays, and I love the full height bedrooms, so easy compared to the Vango Colorado we have, and the Force Ten tent which we use for shorter stays.

As for the comment about it being tidy, of course it is ALWAYS like that

Extended our stay now until Sunday evening, loving the site we're on.

Jane.
