    Sitting issues

    Got whacked by a big storm in Polzeth whilst camping a couple of years ago. Fortunately my Kayam air awning did a great job and just buckled and popped back. Did have to re-peg a few times during the night. The posh Berghaus ( other makes are available) tents etc went in the bin the day after.
