Robens Prospector - Retro Camping Style

If you are after a larger retro-style canvas family tent for your holidays, then the Robens Prospector might be just what you are after.
  1. the pitching instructions tell you to start from back of the tent. i have found if you put the first A frame up at the entrance, then peg that so it doesnt fall. This opens the tent and saves you scrambling in the canvas and allows for an easier pitch.

Camping, Caravanning, and the Alps

Summer camping and summer travels...
  1. Hey Gav, we (mum, dad & 3 boys) are currently two thirds of our way through our own grand European tour! We did Spain, France via the Pyrenees, Dorgogne & the Alps, into Italy. Touched Rome & are currently sat outside our tent in Florence! Yes, we crazily did it all in our Outwell Phoenix 7atc! The car was like a giant Jenga puzzle on every pack down day. But in spite of some tough days, it’s been amazing! Next we head to Como, then the Black Forest in Germany. A few other places to tick off as well before heading back to the UK.
    Enjoy your adventure, love the blog!

    • Wow! That’s an epic trip. 🙂

      We only have the 2 weeks so our tour is limited, but love the idea of doing a few more countries.  How are the kids coping with the travelling? Do you try to keep distances short or do some long journeys with rest days in between?
