Hi, I'm new one here but I've just ordered a 5m soul pad lite. It comes friday. We're planning to use it in france for 2 weeks in the summer (2 adults and 3 children). What are the additional essentials we need to get to go with it?

That's good going glad to hear all went well, I'm planning on taking it down to my dads house for a practice pitch since my garden isn't big enough but I'm hoping for dryer weather to do so its been on and off showers this weekend.

So pleased. It took us 46minutes to get it up first time but I think it will be a lot faster in the future.

We spent the night in it too. Was very pleased with the level of warmth but the howling gales made it impossible to sleep as I was convinced that I was convinced the pole was going to snap and the tent collapse. It however stood up to the test an remained erect and dry all night.

One of the guy ropes at the back did come undone though, which I will investigate further when more awake.

Brilliant, how long did it take you? I've still not got mine out the bag yet sad

We don't have beds but are going to borrow air beds ad sleeping bags from MIL. I think we are going to need extra blankets and hot water bottles too though!

I'm jealous! I don't have beds for it yet or I think we'd be sleeping in ours this weekend too! Have fun!

That's fantastic that's the very tent I got which I did get for £506 I decided to go with soulpad because of the amount of people that said the customer service was great.

Well done soulpad that's the kind of service that will keep people coming back.

Just had a lovely call from Helen at Soulpad explaining they are out stock of the 5000 hybrid and she has upgraded my to the Genie free of charge!

What amazing service. Am very impressed and so glad I chose a Soulpad.

Just need to start sewing my bunting. Have quite a bit of red and blue fabric with a Scandi themed print on it in my stash....

nizzy99 Sat 06-Apr-13 12:25:35

I've just bought a soulpad hybrid-g also (on Easter sale) and can't wait to go away with it and our 5month old the reason I bought one is because of all the reviews and praises on mumsnet soulpad service was 1st class.

Also just joined mumsnet with all the great advice and info.

TheRealMBJ Sat 06-Apr-13 09:56:46

TheRealMBJ Sat 06-Apr-13 08:14:17

Moodykat Sat 06-Apr-13 07:26:27

I'm going to have to make some bunting for when we get one. I am ridiculously excited.

Looking for a good campsite in Devon near the Dart if anyone has any good recommendations. (Preferably a little quieter than the average campsite)
