    Default canvas tents

    I am buying a canvas tent, but need some opinions between the brands Tentco and Campmor.
    which is better and why?

    I wanted this advice when I bought but didn't get round to asking and bought a Tentco. They are plenty good and a demo model can be bought for cheaper if you are the factory.
    Stuff I would like to look at next time .
    Can the door fully open.
    How high is the floor sail going off the ground.

    Cant comment on campmor, but I do have a tentco dome tent.
    Very happy with it. had it for about 7 years now. Still as good as new.
    No leaks. no tears, rips etc.

    Tentco is good value for money.

    Could I offer some more advice?

    Get a tent that has windows that go as far to the floor as possible. In hot weather you will get the benefit of any breeze blowing.

    I like to stand in a tent so that is a big factor for me.

    Try get a tent with a flysheet that acts as shade.

    Which model are you looking at?

    Am I being overly optimistic in looking for a modular tent system? I am keen to get a tent set up that I can use as a single tent but with an option to add a "corridor" to connect it to a second identical tent for family camping?

    Neil,

    the Oz Tent is a great choice. They are very well made and erect in 30 seconds (seen it with my own eyes). They are modular and can be zipped together and have a bunch of optional extra's.

    Not cheap mind so if on a tight budget this could be a problem.

    Charl, let me add to your homework. Have a look at howling moon tents too.

    Thanks Andrew, had a look at them online. They look great but way beyond budget unfortunately
