Thanks for the advice. It will only be used a couple of weekends a year and, hopefully, not in storm weather. Speed of pitching on my own is also important. So the Barbados looks best with that in mind. However I do like the look of the Bunzing (particularly with the door windows, which the Barbados doesn't have) and vents in the bedroom. And still not sure whether the Bunzing has this connecting poles (seller is showing them without but photos online show them).

Have also found a Jan Gent tent which definitely does have connecting poles but is very nice as has 2 middle poles for head height and lots of extras.

Thanks

Hi

Thanks for the advice and (after a LOT of umming and ahhing) i have bought a well looked after Kampa Frinton 4 on ebay. Always put away dry and only used 4 times.

For 210 got the tent, polycotton front canopy, carpet and footprint, which I think was ok?

Ticks all the boxes!

How would you suggest the easiest way to put it up is? particularly by one person.

Thanks for all your help.

I can see you are now besotted with Dutch pyramids... and totally understand why... but putting all that aside, and returning to your original post (for if the pyramid search doesn't progress matters), you could keep your eyes out for a used Kampa Frinton 4 Classic (The "Classic" denotes polycotton).

Did you get the Classic (polycotton) beige and brown version?

As for pitching, have a look at the Cross Camping Method.

When's the trial pitch?
