Brilliant! Thank you.

Hi all. Hope you all had a good xmas and looking forward to another year of camping.
So I have viewed many posts on here but never posted myself.
I recently acquired a 3m x 4m karsten tarp and could do with some info.

So without unwrapping it in my small living room would I be right in saying it has 8 pole attachment points.
And the second question is Iíve looked at many (would I be right in saying king poles?).
Can anyone give recommendations for additional poles.Iíve read many reviews and just when I think some would be ok you get somebody say: not very strong or would bend easy e.c.t.
I know the canvas has a bit more weight. I was thinking of using 6 or all fixing points.
Any information would be appreciated.
Mark.

I'd invest in Karsten king poles from Camping Travel Store. They're not cheap but are lightweight and strong and obviously made for the job.

Can I please ask, is anyone going to the Netherlands soon, or into Europe?

I have recently purchased a 2 year old Karsten tent package but find the wrong Rain Awning zip has been fitted to the front of the Comfort Awning at time of manufacture (see pic), so it's impossible to use both at the same time.
I know Karsten tent warranties are not transferable, but James at Camping Travel Store has very kindly contacted Karsten in the Netherlands, who have agreed to fit correct zips free of charge, since this is clearly a manufacturing error, not a fault which has developed.

James says he can facilitate return carriage but not outward, and there's the problem: to send this canvas to the Netherlands (not a huge box as no poles need go back), it has to go through customs and the recipient (Karsten.nl) needs to pay import fees and VAT, despite that it will then be coming back to the UK. They haven't agreed to this. Furthermore, the customs declaration needs to include new value of goods (and Ive no idea what this is without poles) and duties must be paid by recipient on the combined value of goods plus carriage and insurance. It basically makes Karsten's offer to amend the zip unachievable.

It seems the only way to take Karsten up on their offer is to send the parcel from within the EU. We hope to go to France in May, but that's 3 months away and I've been told it might be some months until Karsten are able to return the canvas, so it would probably negate use of the tent awnings for this year.

Which brings me back to my original question: is anyone going to the Netherlands shortly, or to Europe, and might you consider posting this parcel on my behalf please?

It's going (hopefully!) to:

Karsten Tenten

De Factorij 9,

1689 AK

Zwaag,

Netherlands

Attn: Erwin Glas

If anyone can help, that would be wonderful. If not, it's looking like we'll either have to manage with just the pod for this year, or else see if TVS in Bolton can sort this out for us.

I'd be very happy for you to open the parcel to confirm contents are just tent Awning canvas! I would of course fund all onward carriage charges incurred.

Thanks for reading!

I am in Bath and going to Eindhoven (might go up to Zwaag) for a few weeks in March. I could post it in Holland or take it up to Zwaag if I go up.

I am not sure the zip is incorrect, I seem to remember something about zips and attachments in this thread previously. Did you buy all items new or second hand?

I have several used Karsten king poles. If interested please message me direct with how many you want and I can let you know a price. They work well with Tarps but so do good quality extending aluminium ones which might be a cheaper option.    For instance look for the Reimo Aluminium Telescopic Awning or Tent Pole | ō 30mm | 95-230 cm.

Hi,

Do you know what date in March you'll be going to NL please? Is the offer to post or take this parcel to Karsten in Zwaag still open please?

Many thanks
