Dag sê.

Vir oornag hang dit af waar ons staan en van die weer.

Dis vinniger en gemaklik met die raley as om n gazebo op te slaan, dis ook weer die weer wat n rol speel, tov vas anker.

Vir my is of niks so vir een aand onder n boom, ek neem maar die weer in ag, of die raley vir n naweek met of sonder n sykant.

Is maar ook smaak verskil.

Wind is 'n probleem met a rally tent.  Met ons Skipper het ons ook al die rally opgeslaan in plaas van die Skipper se tent omdat dit baie vinniger is, maar in geval van wind, is die rally 'n besliste nee.  Ons slaan gewoonlik geen tent op vir een dag se staan nie en as ons langer staan, die Skipper se voltent.  Dit is maar, soos seker alle karavaantente, nogal 'n jop op dit te doen, maar as hy eers staan, maar dit die kampering baie aangenamer.  In kort, neewat, 'n rallytent is nie juis geskik nie.  Soos Jin, 'n lekker koelteboom as dit beslikbaar is, is 100%

ek staan altyd met 'n vol tent. Ek is glad nie lief vir wind nie

Dit vat paar min extra om tent op teslaan.

as ek oornag staan eet ek uit en slaan niks op nie.

 

Kom ons gaan kamp

I have been using the Natural Instinct 3x3 Easy-Pitch for years. Never had a problem with it. Like any gazebo you may need to drop it during strong wind. I am still using the solid sides that I purchased years ago from a company in Australia. Was not available then in South Africa.

Vir oornag is die blou lug en sterrehemel my dak.

Kamp nooit net vir 'n naweek nie, minstens 4 nagte. Dan slaan ek die tent se dak op. Indien die weer sleg raak, is dit vining en maklik om net die sypanele aan te rits.

Seker so 4 jaar terug laas die "rally met sykante gebruik. Het nog nooit 'n problem met wind gehad wanneer ek die "rally" gebruik het nie aangesien ek voor en langs die kante van dwarss pale gebruik maak wat hom dan baie stewig maak. 

Moeg geploeg.

Ek het baie lank laas ‘n volledige tent opgeslaan, gebruik altyd die rally met sykante. Nog nooit probleme met wind gehad nie, maar ek sit altyd ‘n net oor.

I do this. I have a Tentco Senior Gazebo with sides. It works well and can handle wind. I used to have a Tentco Dining Shelter and although this was even more weather proof, both the canvas and shade cloth sides were permanently sewn in, which made it very heavy and cumbersome to set up and pack away.

Alex did you get the Caravette i think it was to replace the Navigator?

One of the reasons i got the Skipper was due to it having such a good strong , quality tent. To me it is not worth the effort camping unless we camp for 4 nights so use a full tent, but did buy a ralley for the very rare possibility of a weekend camping. From what i have seen and experienced gazebos are rather susceptible to breaking with strong winds.

Dis soos JIN se.  Die weer speel 'n groot rol.

Ons kamp 100% van die tyd oor naweke met die rally met 'n sykant of twee.  Dit is vir my baie makliker om die rally vas te anker as 'n Gazebo.

Doen dit so sedert ek my eerste wa gekoop het en dit werk vir ons puik.  Gebruik net die vol tent as ons lank op een plek kamp.

Sonder Jesus is ek niks! ! ! !

The Tentco is pretty strong and holds up well in the wind. Much better than the pop up gazebos. I have had it a a few gale force storms.

Ons het begin met 'n tent, toe 'n "Bush Baby", en nou 'n Sprite SC - nooit gedink ons sal ooit weer "teruggaan" na 'n tent nie.

Toe kom "Seuntjie", my Jimny, en die klub doen toere met die karretjies en ek kan nie my karavaan gebruik vir dit nie .... dus... sleepwa en tent agter Seuntjie is seker maar die uiteinde?

Wow, toe kry ons hierdie aanhangsel tentjies (dink dit word "Add-a-Room" genoem) wat aan 'n 3x3 Gazebo hak. 2 gekoop, en een as 'n slaapplek gebruik en een vir aantrek, stoorplek vir tasse ens. HEERLIK (maar, gelukkig het die weer elke keer saamgespeel. Die Gazebo self is gebruik as 'n kombuis/sitplek/kuierplek

Tydens ons toer saam met die kinders Waenhuiskrans toe, is die stelsel weer ingebruik geneem vir slaapplek vir die kleinseun, terwyl die ander "kamer" gedien het as stoorplek. Weereens groot sukses, en weereens, alhoewel die wind redelik waai aan die kus, was die staanplek redelik beskut, en dus sonder groot probleme.

Dus, as jy goed beplan, kan dit beslis werk!

Nico, also seem to enjoy my tent more than my small caravan, also looking at your set up, but the advert states it only fits on Tentco bow tents, I have a different make allthoug its the exact same dimensions as the Tentco bow tent, any help out there  ?

Gee Lance, I don't have any idea as far as brands are concerned. Bought our Gazebo at Makro, and some years later the 2 "Add-a-Room" sides. I must admit, once again, that this is an ideal set-up. The added fantastic part of this is that we added sides to the Gazebo and, at Waenhuiskrans, incorporated this feature on the one side as well, as it gave the kiddies that little added protection against the wind (they used the Gazebo in itself as a play pen area ....)
