Ha! he's the only one who knows how to fix it if it fucks up (and has a van to transport it!) 

fyi, it's great fun to drive!

Going on a Hurti Gruten trip around the Norwegian Fjords in February when it will be really cold and icy so have stocked up with cold weather clothing at Mountain Warehouse.  Got some great bargains at present which will also serve to keep dry and warm at festivals.

Hope this helps someone!

Just ordered this myself, looks like the perfect tent, haven't been able to find any reviews but unless it arrives with more holes than a cheese grater then it seems like an absolute steal!

Ill be using my trusted sack barrow with yellow solid monster truck wheels, it’s done me proud at Glasto 2011 and a couple of muddy ynot festivals.  

Can we get a photo? Sounds rad.

Anyone know of any decent tents with two separate bedrooms? Looking to spend about 150ish and the smaller/lighter the better.

It looks like a good deal, I couldn’t share a tent with 5 other people though, I need a little place that I can escape everyone from for a few hours per night.

Comes in a case with wheels and my entire group are heavily into the gym so 20kg won't be bad if we take turns on the walk. 2000mm be waterproof enough?

So, I have one of these.... I guess it's not THAT small or light, but I can manage to carry it myself (with a massive rucksack,  a smaller day pack, and a bag with wellies and cider in). It's cheap, sure, but I can testify that it can withstand rain and very high gales - I took it to boomtown last year where there were up to 60mph winds (or kmph maybe?) and it stood strong while loads of lesser tents fell down or got blown away. 

Spacewise, it's great. I often taken it for just two people which is nothing short of luxurious, but have also done with four with all the booze and wellies in the middle 🙂

Seen a few similar ones around, they look great, not for me as I like a bit of space at night after its all over and having the extra space just  to get away from everyone in the morning is great for my mind.
