Jules..... Phew that's a tricky one. That's like saying who is sexier... Charlize Theron or Cameron Diaz.... :rolling:

I prefer a proper canvas material tent. My RTT is an Echo tent and is as robust as can be. My Camping trailer tent is a ripstop type material. Its a much lighter material, but I don't believe its as robust. I haven't managed to do any damage to my Camper tent, so it seems be pretty robust considering its about 15 odd years old.

The advantage with the canvas tent is that at night with a light on inside, there is no sexy undressing scene visible to the people outside that will be selling popcorn and slushies to the premier viewing of you and your wife getting undressed.... :rolling: :rolling:

There is NONE beter than the BUNDUTOP Bundutech RTT [it goes up in 30 seconds, Down in 40 seconds [[ in a alum lid and bottom and it works off 12 volt battery [your car or 2nd battery..

Have a look: http://www.bundutec.co.za/bundutop.html .. If you like it let Oompie know [I am a sub agent, so would appreciate if the sale can go through me]

Thanks vir raad manne,oom Mac ek like die Bundutec maar daar is nie n aantrek area nie wat ook kan doen as n kuier area Indien dit reen. Ek wil n tent hê wat wanneer jy opslaan reeds n vertrek by het

Tinus hou maar jou oor oppie grond want ek sal defnitief 2de hands gaan
