We are planning our first camping trip and thought that we had decided on the Khyam Harvard Deluxe:

Khyam Harvard

But have realised that I think it has no SIG in the living area. Can anyone confirm this as I cannot seem to find a website that has enough information on it.

We would love to have the possibility of 3 separate bedrooms, did look at this one:

Easy Camp

As it has a SIG, but was wondering if it has its faults?

Can anyone help me find a tent? Would like to spend as little as possible, have found the Harvard at less than £100 but would go to a bit more.

Harvard definitely doesn't have a SIG. The only thing I would say about the easy camp is if you pitch the single pod as well there isn't a very big living space. Also, not sure of its hydrostactic head (HH) - needs to be 2000 minimum

Have you checked out ukcampsite? They're good for this sort of thing

The easy camp had a HH of 2000, but one of the reasons that I liked the Harvard was that as well as everything else, it had 5000. I know that's not necessary but not sure I would be pleased with only 2000.

With the single pod, can you put it up once the whole tent is up? SO could I just put it up at night?

Does the Harvard have SIG in the bedrooms?

I've looked on the outdoor megastore site and it seems to suggest you can chose whether or not to pitch the single pod. scroll down the page to find the Napoli

DO NOT GO TO
Awnings Direct & Tents Too
Sandy Lane

Tyne and Wear

This place has the worst customer service i bought a tent the sunncamp tarn 300 on their tent experts opinion after he said it could be put up by one person. It is untrue there is no way unless you erected tents all day every day you could put that tent up. i want to send it back and he will give me a partial refund which he decides. he gives me advice which is untrue then he decides if i get a refund. i said i would take it to trading standards as i bought it solely on his advice and they put the phone down on me. please if you want good customer service do not buy from them. this company is on other sites as well with other peopke complaining about their service. to save yourself money please do not buy from them.
