Money was returned without questions, that's always with call back actions. Manufacturers doing call back actions are in my good book. Things might go wrong during designing and it's great the consumer get's money back or free replacement with a good part.
So checkout when you're going into the buying of a tentipi with aporch if still the velcro solution is used. Ask about it and ask for your rights when things go wrong.
hi I've git a Varrie 7, (now called the safir 7) and on my way back from a camping trip on monday I called in to proadventure in Llangollen , they showed me the porch, it looks very nice BUT at £ 375.00 Id just be able to stand up in it , and a lot af faffing around to fiit I decided to give it a miss , I have today found a vango add on porch so with a little sewing magic , I will make it fit , ok its not as nice looking as the tentipi one but it is green , , and it has a floor ! I am going to measure it against my tipi tommorow so if the price is right Im on it
just my opinion guys
Hey Riz, if you do manage to rig up the vango porche, care to post some pictures?
Hi Nick , yes of course , I went to fit it today and it fits a treat it does need a little work . but I dont mind that all the tie in points of the vango just fit , Im just awaiting the shop owner to come back from his hols to give me a price ,
Hmmm my idea about the porch is that it has an awfull look on tenttipi's but that's personal. I'm more the guy that likes the A frame construction above the entrance of the tipi (staked bak along the sides of the tipi and a huge tarp on it. The small gap between entrance and A frame is almost no burden in a heavy downpour. But the looks are far more better than that strange tunnellike porch. Again it's personal . And I do not own a tentipi but a Bison Tundra 8 tipi. It was better for my wallet and i do not use it that often. i'm more a lightweight person (owning also a Seekoutside tipi 6P).
each to their own , Ive tried a totanka tarp and as you say for looks , it does do the tipi justice but my dog is now blind and there fore I need something that I can secure , and my mrs likes to sit in a porch with window s, and the porch ive got will also fit around the back of my trucks , and when alone I can sleep in the back and just step out into the porch , just different kit for different scenarios ,
For tipi fetish look at this....
If you take a good look you see that the huge tarp is connected to the top of the tipi. Furthermore you notice something of a porch also.
This tipi is raised by a single steel pole which also functions as exhaust pipe for the stove which actually hangs on the pipe and is turnable (you just turn the whole pipe with it.) handy if you don't want to get out of bed when it's cold and you want to throw a log in it.
I see this type of tipi often and IMHO a tentipi is nice but these babies are way more nicer, rounder, higher, sturdier. Simply a roll royce under the tipi's suited for car camping (you might need a cart behind your car if it's small one).
