The camping essentials - I've found a bargain which you all need to know about thread...

Recommended Posts

Not so much a bargain and it's no secret but I've recently discovered the benefits of dry shampoo, what an invention!

I owe the man / woman who made that stuff a beer

For anyone thinking of getting one, the 2 wheel trolley is great. Used it for the last 3 years for numerous festivals.

I second that. Have had one for a few years now. Folds down great and can carry a surprising amount with bungees. Handles rough hard ground and mud without any problems

Good to hear. I bought one recently and will be giving it a run out at Bearded Theory in a couple of weeks.

One slight word of warning though for anyone buying one, make sure you pump up the tyres when it arrives. There was a faulty valve on one of the wheels on mine and I had to contact the company. They were brilliant and sent out a whole new wheel without me having to return the other one but just saying don't leave it until the night before you go before checking them.

One year at Glastonbury we went down on the Tuesday night and slept in the cars. Wednesday morning, we get up and start loading up trolleys, one of the people with us had a new wheelbarrow. She took it out the car, still in the box, not even unsealed it. Of course the tyre was flat as a pancake, she hadn't even thought about that and no-one had a pump. 

It was not an easy trip in.

Can anyone suggest a trolley or stuff carrying device that I'd be able to take on the coach?

Inflatable mattresses are half price in Tesco. Got a double for £7.50 

But what about inflation?

i'm an avid fan of Hot UK Deals and today this popped up...

http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/portable-camping-stove-4-99-what-stores-caerphilly-2450215

Portable camping stove £4.99 @ What! Stores (Caerphilly)

Admittedly it's only in Wales in a shop I've never heard of and no one knows if it's a national or store specific deal. Either way, great price for a camping stove!

I had something identical to this for my first festival, it didn't make it much more than a few feet from my car.

Yep, I wouldn't buy one but it may carry a few cans of cider...

Honestly I think it could just about manage to carry a hat, I was really cross when the whole thing fell to pieces.
