does it have a sealed ground sheet Sally? (or is that what sig stands for blush)

also would it be OK for a week in Cornwall in August?

we bought a windsor over the w/e. i hope its ok <worried> I know that everyone recommends a vango or coleman but frankly our money wouldn't go that far for what we wanted!

I have a little eurohike one i bught for camping experiment when the DDs were littler - it was absolutely fine.
now the flipp side - have a massive Vango which is also fine.
lets do a sundance - it may work.

tiggerish, I have a vango.
Without nipping to our garage and checking it out i cant remember what its called!
It looks like this www.millets.co.uk/Tents/Ventura-500-Tent/product/095167.aspx
We have used it twice and we have had it less than 12 months.
We liked it because the bedrooms were next to each other, or could change into 1 big room.
Anyway, we are selling as we have just bought a campervan.
Let me know if your interested, we paid about £130, willing to sell for £70 ono!!!!

I dont like the idea of dc's being zipped up in a different part of the tent!!!!
Also, its defo that tent!
Forgot to say, it has a very good storm/waterproof rating.
Dp is a paratrooper who likes to rough it, personally, the sun has got to be cracking the flags before dd and I venture out....dp insists its 'just incase' grin
