Hello. This isnt an advert (I know the rules) - but just want to know if anybody could suggest good price for 2nd hand tent?

I have an outwell indiana -sleeps 6. Good condition although couple tiny holes which I have repaired and it is also ready for re-waterproofing (it must be 6 or 7 years old).

I am thinking of listing from £75 as auction on ebay or £100 buy it now? What do people think? I will also put it in local shop.

Looked on ebay and cant really judge as lots of people seem to sell all their camping equipment as one, so including cooking equip, chairs etc. Other tents are hardly used so difficult to judge mine against that.
DO you think I am asking too much?? thanks

Put the name of the tent into completed listings on eBay. There are some on there . Judge it from there.

How do I find completed listings on ebay? Only used ebay couple of times in 10 years.

Life of Po - You can call me knackered - but please dont disrespect my tent wink. I have probably painted a bleak picture - the 2 holes are pinholes on on the side and one on the back (both patched with the little discs you get with the tent). The waterproofing aspect I just mentioned because we noticed a bit of condensation this summer and have been told that is a sign ready for waterprooofing. Otherwise it is in good condition -we are just going bigger having seen another outwell.

Will stick it on but dont want to sell it for 99p sad

You do a name search of tent and then click on 'refine' your search to be completed listings and/ or sold items only

Thank you - have decided to keep it now. Husband thinks it is daft idea to sell it - he seems to be on a mission to collect tents. Will keep this one and get an even bigger one - I suppose we can invite extended family away with us and provide accommodasion wink
