Have trawled the internet but this hugely popular tent seems to be out of stock. Has anyone got any good suggestions, there's only 3 in our family so far but hoping (fingers crossed) to have another bubba at some stage so thinking ahead re: size.
Thanks in advance xx

I'm guessing budget around £150ish if you wanted the Icarus? I liked that tent too, there were still loads about a couple of weeks ago, typical! We were put off in the end anyway because I think it's just one big bedroom, no divider? Few suggestions:

Orchy 400 / 500? Seems to be plenty of them about still?

Or the Tigris 400?

Khyam Winnipeg?

Outwell Iowa can be had for around £200... or this Outwell Michigan L seems like a bit of a bargain but maybe bigger than you were looking for...

Coleman Waterfall 5 £130 at World of Camping

Just a few to consider! We too have been trawling the internet looking for tents and these are the smaller ones that stick in my mind!

Easycamp licata 400 is a similar tent and price. Or Outwell Nevada 4.

Thank you all so much for the top suggestions. Have checked them all out and most are now sold out but managed to get the Khyam Winnipeg and it gets delivered Monday, so excited. Even bought the footprint and if this trip goes well may splash out on a carpet!
Thanka again campers xx
