Colour Coded Awnings

This is a great example of a Karsten with colour coded awnings... A 350 set up in dark green. The family also have the sleeping extension to further enhance the sleeping area,leaving the main tent for day to day use.

The owner said of this picture; 'This is our most recent camp (late May BH) at Glanllyn, Lake Bala in Wales.  Its a site we used to use circa 25 years ago but have started using again - excellent location for sailing as you can store boats by tents and launch straight onto Bala.  We are going back with a group of friends with similar boats in August'.

We have supplied our customers with such an array of bespoke tents, if you have any photos of your set-ups we'd love to see them. Please send in any photos to info@campingtravelstore.co.uk

Quick overnighter to Town Farm

Having just finished the display and been away from the children for two week, I naturally said 'What would you like to do this weekend?' their joint response - GO CAMPING!

As it happens, it turned out really useful as I needed to see the Karsten rental tents that Town Farm Camp Site have, so it was a great excuse to take the new ESVO Bedouin 340 for a test run... there will be a review on that tent coming soon.

We arrived just after lunch to glorious sunshine and managed to pitch the tent solely with everything sorted, camp kitchens and beds etc... in under an hour from arrival. The children spent the afternoon playing on the campsite and settled down for home made chill supplemented by a campsite pizza cooked on-site by the travelling pizzeria. It was awesome.... After a fantastic sunset we settled down and slept really well. 

Unfortunately the tent had to come down wet, but as it was so easy to  pitch  I don't mind re-pitching when we arrive home.



 This is a gem of a site - one of our personal favourites

Summer Display - Featuring ESVO


Our June display saw the showcasing of the ESVO Bedouin range....certainly the first time I've ever seen them in the UK. Together with the Cabanon and Karsten's our show was a 'Sea of Canvas'.



With over 20+ models on display as well as Karsten Commercial Range and the mainstream tents offered by Cross Camping it was a display not to be missed. Quite possibly the best in the UK!
