I'm desperately trying to get a pop up gazebo - one that will fit in the back of my car when folded down?

I bought one from E-bay, it was huge and not waterproofed. I sent it back.

I bought one from Argos. It was huge and i couldnt fit it in my car - an estate! I sent it back.

Somebody please help me. I really want one for camping this summer (summer?!) and cannot send another one back. HELP!

what was wrong withthe blue £80 one from Argos ? It pops up and fits in my car (not an estate)

The Telegraph on Saturday was recommending one for about £30 from Woolworths.

I got one from B&Q .it is waterproof ,with 2 sides and tall when up , suitable to use with a patio heater.Very cosy

really Kaluna? Does it just fit in your boot? There is no way i could fit in my Ford Fiesta or my DP's Passat estate. Certainly not with anything (or one) in there as well. it was a fab gazebo but just too big.

Easilt in the boot with one seat dropped forward in Vectra and same in Passat I had last year when purchased. Children have to sit the two seats remaining - but may be a squeeze if you stil need two car seats as well

Defo gets in both cars with seat down

Thanks anyway..

They are good until the wind gets up. Think I saw them in the Argos or Homebase sale for £14.99

I've seen this one if you google

It looks fab and am very tempted myself as you could take it to the beach (& be stared at!!), but would love to see it for real before buying.

If anyone knows if they are any good - let me know please

that does look pretty groovy but i would also like to see it in action before i bought it. I wonder where they stock them....
