VW Camper Van Tent - Easily assembled luxury 4 person tent, available in a number of colours

People of a certain age will remember fondly the 1965 Volkswagen Camper Van. Synonymous originally with the Swinging Sixties and the hippie culture, later to be adopted by surfers as the de rigueur means of transport and accommodation, the VW Camper is an icon of its time.

Now you can have a modern icon without the cost and problems of the original – welcome the VW Camper Van Tent. It´s certainly a considered purchase – but you are guaranteed it being rust-free and mechanically sound, and you don´t need to fill it with fuel either. Officially licensed by VW, the tent is a luxury 4 person tent that packs up compactly and is easily assembled.

Red, yellow and blue novelty 4 person tent. Also various views of the tent and dual access flaps. Ideal for VW enthusiasts and avid campers. Buy yours today from Gadget Hound!Available in blue, yellow or red – you´re sure to find a shade to suit your taste. But the tent is more than a mere looker, it´s practical too. With enough headroom for an average adult to stand up in comfort there´ll be no body contortions getting in or out. And the overall size is a very impressive and spacious 4 metres long by 1.5 metres wide by 1.8 metres high.

Add in two zip-separated double size rooms that allow 4 adults to sleep in comfort, and a built in groundsheet to keep you dry, and you´ve got one of the trendiest tents to hit the market in years. The tent is also fitted with two zipped external doors that open just like the originals – another nice authentic touch. Fortunately it is not supplied with fake entrance columns, onyx surfaces or Burberry groundsheet, so should be safe from being adopted by Wayne Rooney or any other Premiership footballers – good news indeed.
