Guadalupe Campsite, Spain

Zambujeira Campsite in Portugal

Hi Mucker, you'll have to wait till you retire like us to do longer trips. We did manage Hungary on a three week trip with our children back in the 1990's Also a two week trip to Italy though the furthest south we got was Florence.
That was our second trip to the Iberian peninsula, the first one four years ago where we first spotted a Karsten.
This trip like the last one was for seven weeks (50 days) and we covered nearly four thousand miles. We did spend one week in a house near Granada but the rest was in a tent. We used an ACSI Camping Card which meant that quite few sites were only 13 or 15 euros per night including electric.
Camping under trees is hard to avoid in the south and we did get some stains on a corner of the pod. (from eucalyptus trees we think) For the first time I connected some long guys to the top cap of the pod and kept it open during the day, certainly help reduce the temperature.
We did have a great trip thanks Mucker so dream on, your turn will come.

It was all going so well, KK... until you mentioned the 7 weeks/50 days!!
Now my face has gone a funny green colour, and there is steam coming from my ears!
Who knew jealousy could become so sickening!!

I'm looking to get a Karsten for family trips (short and long) with 2 young kids. I don't suppose anyone has a 350 (or 380) coming up for sale any time soon?

Hi pjs,

I have provisionally advertised my Karsten 350 plus rain awning in the classified section of this website. Will chase James at CTS tomorrow to firm up asking price. Tony

Hi blythspirit, it sounds lovely, unfortunately purchasing all the required awnings to make it suitable for a family of 4 at ~ 1500 would put it way out of budget I'm afraid.

Mucker, was it your wife who made a storage pocket holder-thingy for your Karsten? Triangular shape?
Would like to make one and wondered if I could steal her idea...!
Apologies if it was not you..
thank you,
Kate

Hi Kate. Yes it was.

One triangle...



and two "standard" type, with different pocket sizes/layout...








Obviously, pocket sizes/layout can be made to suit your own personal needs, if need be.
If you need any details, shout up... and I'll grill Muckerette for the answers!
