Which second hand tent?

I plan to go camping for a night or two (max) either in the Easter hols or summer. It will be me and the two dds. They are desperate to try it out. I am not from a camping family and see it will only ever be short localish trips.

So, I want to get a 2nd hand tent, under £100, can put up fairly easily by myself or with minimal 7yr old assisstance. It should not be as large as a small hotel nor as small as a dog kennel.

What should I look for? I have been browsing eBay . . .

Well I have the 3 berth version of this (as it's just me and DS who camp) and it's very easy to put up alone. I think you'd probably want a four berth. Also check you can stand up straight in at least part of the tent.

I'd definitely go for summer if I were you as the nights at Easter can get very chilly. It might put you off before you've even begun.

Thanks. So that style looks quite straight forward
