Darren (go_offroad) has a couple of them, and is happy with them.

I've looked for one myself few weeks ago, he must have got some more - if I had the $ I'd buy one today.

For the price of them, you could never lose!!!

Going to have a look at it next week, put it up etc.

Seems like good value but all it takes is one miserable wet night......

Very true..

is there good waterproofing stuff for Canvas? Maybe call Southern cross etc and ask them their ideas on it.. say to them you have an old one of their tents and wanna re-proof it!

but for $600+ cheaper than the top brands again you could sell for $500 on ebay I reckon and make money!

I had a second at a "trial" and sold it and bought a new Aussie made canvas one for just over a grand. This was a disaster, and I recently got a full refund. I then got another "second" off eBay a few weeks ago and have waterproofed all the seams myself with canvas sealer (purchased from a Saddelry) and some beeswax furniture polish and it is fine. Seems good at present. I think they are a terrific touring tent, and it is a shame they could not get the heavier Aussie made one to work.

Hey Alan,

I bought one as I like the concept but could never bring myself to pay the top dollar for one. I have follwed the instructions for waxing the seems and added a few eyelets where missing and will wet down the canvas on the weekend and let you know how it all goes. I am also going to make up a safari top for mine as well to be sure that the roof seams cope with an extreme downpour as well as providing the breezway in the upper part of the tent.

Regards,

Stuart M
