Ok, I need to buy one asap and have narrowed it down to either the wynnster perpignan 8 or vango Athena 600. Stumped. So you can all decide for me!

There are 5 of us, kids are 12, 8 and 3.....

Will try to do links......

Thank you!!!

The steel poles of the wynnester would win it for me, despite the
HH being less than the vango.

Oh I didn't even look at that, although I did see the hh was more on the vango.

Thank you, I have to say its my favourite even though its more expensive....

Yeah but less likely to get damaged in gonorrhoearic gales.

You're right, I think the wynnster wins!

Yay! We have a Wynnster Mallard 5 bought about 9 years ago now, a bit smaller than yours but similar design. We love it and it is still going strong after all these years of very heavy use. It stood up to torrential rain in the highlands of Scotland very nicely. We're taking it back there with us later this week (and hoping for better weather grin ).

Happy camping, hope you love your tent!

I've got my eye on the Perpignan 8. Let me know how you get on on your first trip with yours. I also like the Hi Gear Corado 8 and Hartford XL. Ah decisions decisions...

Whichever we go with we won't be using it until the spring and I thought we might get a better deal I'm an end of season sale but the Perpignan 8 is currently on offer with the carpet for 275 which seems a really good price. What do you camping experts think - should we buy now or wait?

Oh that's great music, very reassuring! Some friends have a wynnster and I was quite taken with it on a camping trip earlier this year.....can't wait to try it out grin

cheerup, we did think about waiting but that deal seemed much too good to pass up, we are camping in Wales on 5 August, I will make sure I come back and let you know how we got on. But I would go for it, its a bargain!
