Can anyone point me in the right direction? He has a tendancy to escape from beds and we have a secure bed at home but we are going to 'brave' going on hol and we are going to put a mattress inside the tent (we are staying in a house) and then zip it and lock it so he can't escape in the middle of the night (my big fear and the reason we haven't as yet been on holiday) He is nearly 6.
jimjams has been looking for similar if you approach her, but otherwise its a case of find the right tent and woprk out how to lock I reckon.
Fist things first- we know you need, pop up or wuick erect; how many people for, and will you be erecting alone or have a DP? Also, are there any other unusual needs- eg a really tall DP, that sort of thing?
As a quick start though the khyam quick erect tents and quechua 2 seconds are the mainstay of this type
TheDevil - no he would not be scared by this (he loves to feel secure/hemmed in) - I prob won't sleep in same room as him as I don't want him to think this is the norm for when we get home.
A secure bed is like a cot but with extra big sides - My DH made one for DS when he was 2 and had climbed out of the cot - its lockable with an inner door - they cost a fortune in the shops (about 1000 quid!)
So what about a gelert quick pitch pop up. here It looks like it has a double zip...so you could just use a normal lock to lock the 2 zips together. He could move them around but they wouldn't come apart iykwim.
