The post

It might be a bit late to ask this question as I snapped one up yesterday that was on sale and seemed to be a good price. It was a Sportiva Villa and I paid $289.00 on sale. We were looking for a fairly large tent for our family holidays. (I'll take a 9x9 tourer for my short trips away with the boys).

I was steering towards a canvas cabin tent, but when I saw this tent at that price, I changed my mind and handed over a lot less $$$. I'm sure the canvas tents are good, however, the family trips will only be a couple a year if that, so I couldnt see point at this stage, to invest in a good canvas cabin tent.

I guess, I'd just like to hear reports from other Sportiva owners on how their tents have been and if there is anything I need to look out for?

My sister got hers from the Caboolture markets, many years ago now so don't know if the bloke is still selling them up there.

Cheers Trevor.

I have a Sportiva Headland 4 tent that has never been used, If you would like it I would be prepared to let it go for $200.00

I have a picture of it but I don't know how to put it on here so if you email me at at just put @ inplace of at

I can email you the picture.

We got ours (a 4v+ not a villa) at A-Mart here in Perth, think it was $149.
Bloody good. We've used it half a dozen times now and its been brilliant every time.
Just get yourself some decent pegs (they give you very good steel ones, but some sand ones wouldn't go amiss - we leave half the pegs at home anyway, we only need about 6 to keep it up).
