To all the practical members out there, does anyone have any info on

 

To all the practical members out there, i would like some info regarding a tent modification i am thinking of. I have a 1985 Wilk Emerald with only a rally tent fully enclosed, a bit small for my family. A new tent is about R 19 000. I can pick up a Campmaster Family lodge tent which is complete rip stop canvas and 6M x 3M in size with 2 x seperate rooms, 1 x main area and a patio area for R 1500 in good condition. I am thinking of having a double zip sided exstension made from Rally tent end door to Campmaster tent side. Therefore having a walk through area from rally tent into Campmaster tent. Might sound stupid, any ideas.

Regards

John

Imagine trying to get square at Medolino Frown

  Hi John, We have had all our tent repairs and modifications done at Gans Tents in Phoenix. Found them to be very obliging and reliable. Their workmanship very good. They are prepared to make any alteration or changes you require. We did our repair/changes in three stages as we had the money to do them. Very satisfied and will definitely go back to them if need be.

Hi Duncan,

most of the stands in KZN are not all standard, and site plans are available with the sizing. Some of the stands at Karradene are over 300 square meters. But i do see your point.

Regards

John

Thanks Marg,

R 19000 for a Wilk Emerald tent. Never the less thanks for the advice, i will contact him with regards to my tent mod, this time i will call him from my vehicle wearing my safety belt.

Regards

John

 Hi John, When we bought our caravan we were advised that the tent would be worth more than the caravan. Now I believe it. I saw the above advert on Gumtree for a large tent under the caravan section.
