Hi,

Please help! I am looking for a family tent for 5-6 people that I can pitch by myself (on the odd occasions that my DH doesn't want to come camping with us).

I'm not keen on pop up tents as I do not think that I will be able to pack it up by myself! I absolutely love the Outwell Montana 6P but not sure about pitching it alone. I've been told to avoid fibreglass poles as they tend to snap.... I've looked at Vango airbeam but can't find any for under £550 (i like the enternity 600). I'm not keen on the bell tent as I like the separate rooms and think that bell tents can get messy very quickly.

Is it possible to find a decent sized tent that I pitch by myself? Any recommendations please?

I have a very high tolerance for creases so I should be fine. Creases are generally the least of my style worries when camping. I am the woman who looked down at my feet about lunchtime the other day at eweleaze to find myself wearing crocs with black socks. A bit of a low point.

Thanks for the tips Starlight. I like the pillowcase idea for my DS & DH. For me, creased clothing will be a step too far..... I may be converetd after my camping trip next week though!
