Hello,

I'm having trouble finding a new small tent. I'm after one with a fully sewn in groundsheet. 2/3 man. I had my eye on the new outwell cloud 3 but can't find anywhere in the northwest with one set up to go and have a look. I've been spoilt with my larger outwell (Cape coral s) I've got for the two of us. I'd use that but would feel lost in it on my own. Just after a tent with a bit of a porch area for dumping kit etc in. I don't need to be able to stand up. I need help! Any make will do to be honest apart from coleman, sent a few of their tents back. What happened to them? Their quality consistency is rubbish. Advice, help is needed. Thanks folks

Not many small tents have a fully sewn in groundsheet, they mainly have a loose groundsheet in the porch area. Is that a must-have?

Take a look at Dewaard tenten on the internet, lovely tents if your going for quality that will last a long time, but pricy

I was after a fully sewn in groundsheet just to stop it being so drafty and to help keep the warmth in. When ever I go camping with mates /by myself the weather is awful. I do fair weather camping with my partner a lot also. The temperature last time I went on a stag do it was - 6 and blowing a gale at night. I've had a coleman tent for 9 years and it's never failed me but it's really drafty inside. I tried to replace it last year with another one and it was so poorly made that I sent it back and won't go back. It's looking like a vango or outwell for me, just need help picking the right one. I don't have a huge budget 250 max. Thanks for helping guys
