I need to book a campsite and they are asking for the tent size. I havent used my Karsten yet. I know the size of my tent (350) but I'm not sure of the length once I have all the sections up. I have the CA, EA , Front wall and RA.

Don't forget to leave a review of all tents you've used, for a chance to win fantastic prizes

New! Please upload a photo of your tent to the Tent Showcase!

the CA, EA, FW are all approx 110cm long each extending forwards and the RA is approx 1.5m again.

just add together the pieces you want to use on that trip ( beauty of the Karsten pod - you can adapt it to Exactly the size you need for said trip! )

Pod = 3.5 + CA (1.1) + EA (1.1) + RA (1.9) = 7.6m plus guys. (Ideally add 1.5m at both front and rear for guys, but can manage with less if need be, particularly at the back, so around 10.5m long inc guys).

The RA effectively cancels out the FW, as they start at the same point (The RA protruding out further than the FW).
