Tent bed ...luxury I say
To start this off here was my camp at Wivenhoe. I have used the tent bed minus the tarp several times now and find it so simple and comfortable.
A bit hard to gat dressed in though. Great for roadside stops and Oh so comfortable. Cheers, Pam [Photo credited to another respected member]
Looks good, better than my swag. What brand & where'd you get it?
Warwick, "Downs heating" It is just called a "Tent Bed"
Suited more for the warmer weather I think, with fly mesh and zips front, back and both sides. Basically just "drop and flop" which is what appealed to me . 2 second set up. Most of those type of camp bed set ups require more setting up than a tent. So this one in my opinion was a lot better than a swag even and much cheaper. If I suspect rain then I just throw a hootchie over the top. Supposed to be pretty waterproof anyway. It survived the Wivenhoe wind and is warm as a tent with the right sleeping bag.
Couldn't get any simpler.
She's an up market set up that one Pam, quick and easy too!
I bought a stretcher the other day for my swag, got sick of rain water run off running through my sleeping quarters.
Here's a shot of our camp at Lake Wuruma during the floods just before Christmas 2010. Didn't bother pitching a tent, it was too bloody wet.
