    Default Do you camp with a tent?

    Who takes a tent camping?

    What kind do you have and how many do you fit into it? How happy are you with it?

    We had a Coleman two room + sunroom tent for years. It wasn't too bad to put up. It didn't have a fly (so we got pretty wet when it rained for three days in Adelaide - a kind of fine mist came through!) So we brought a tarp, too. The tent fitted well on a regular caravan site.

    We now have an Xtrail Cross dome (with fly) which has three separate bedrooms and loads of space. Great to fit all of us but it is way too big for a regular van site in caravan parks.

    We also have bunk beds to save space, which we're quite happy with.

    We camp in a tent. We just have a cheap 4 person tent. We fit my tent, my mum's tent, my car, my mum's car and my brother's van on the 1 camp site. Plenty of room.

    Just those foam mats that roll up and sleeping bags. My mum has a camp bed due to arthritis and my brother sleeps in his van.
