The tent's shrunk!
The only difference you can see is the fading at the very top, compared to the as new dark section just under where the canopy would be.
If you look on Marktplaats, although they usually state the age, they always say how many. 'Weeks' use it's had which gives you a better idea of the condition.
I don't think my Karsten had had much use, as I could see no fading at all. Now I've used it for five weeks, four of which were very sunny(yes, hard to believe I know here), I can see some very, very slight colour loss when I take the top square rain cap off.
I could never afford to buy any canvas tent new, (not just karsten), all my tents are secondhand. It's a compromise I'm happy with, but it does take a bit more time and effort to find the right one, in a condition that you're happy with.
