We need a utility at short notice and are trying to decide between these two. I did originally consider the outdoor revolution xl but we were thinking of something more like a gazebo which this is.

Does anyone own either or have any advice please?

I don't have either, but I prefer the look of the Lichfield personally

Lichfield

pros - groundsheet (unless cooking then a con!), Steel poles for rigidity

cons - groundsheet if cooking, large openings only

Ultracamp

pros - can be more enclosed, pvc panel in roof for light

cons - pvc panel can make it hot in sun (no shelter), fibreglass poles.

mmmm difficult, perhaps I just prefer blue!

Yes, the car is bigger than the 'van.

I just wonder whether you'll end up with loads of flies batting up against the pvc ceiling in the ultracamp, trying to get out - we used to have a roof light in our previous tent and always had loads of flies trying desperately to get out that way.

Have you considered the kampa day tent?

More expensive but it's a nice day tent

Hi there.

As a supplier of Ultracamp tents may I add another viewpoint - that of the reliability of the seller. We offer next day delivery (if ordered by 2.00pm) and a 30 day money back guarantee - if you don't like the tent just return it!

We are www.squarekipper.co.uk or if you prefer, check us out on eBay and Amazon - look at our feedback too.
