    While I adore my Tentipi, it's a bit of a pig to carry in and if it gets soaked it's a bit of a pig to dry out.

    I purchased it from Taunton Leisure in 2010, it is the single zip model and it has spent about 10 nights up in total. it is in flawless condition and comes with a comfort floor, also in flawless condition.

    http://www.tauntonleisure.com/tentipi-comfort-floor-9/p1839

    New prices for both would be £1785 - I'm putting a toe in the water at the cost of a replacement Helsport model and asking for £1055 which is still just over £700 off retail so pretty good I think.

    No idea what to do about postage, while it's an immovable object when set up, it's still big and heavy so postage isn't going to be cheap, of course, collection is more than welcome, especially if someone wants to come and check it out first.

    If nobody wants it I'll just keep it, I still love it.

    Hi Freddy, I need to replace it with another tipi so £1055 is my best price but I can sweeten the pot a bit...

    I can include a decent set of nail type pegs (The tentipi ones aren't so good for UK soil), a handy spring clip double hook so you can hang stuff off the centre pole and primus micron lantern.

    Let me know ;)

    WOW!! what an amazing tent!!
    I want 1 lol!!
    Have you modded at all for use with a stove?
    I no it says you can use an open fire or a stove in it but cant figure out where you would put it as the pole would be in the middle wouldnt it?
    Cheers

    Thanks for all the support and bumps of various types everyone :D

    The videos explain everything well, thanks for posting 'em... other than some of the smaller features like being able to vent the top from in bed and the ground vents in the skirt etc.

    Cheers again.

    Great vids Southey thanks mate!!!
    I really am in love with this tent!!!
    Does the ground sheet that comes with it zip in?
    There is myself and my wife and we have 3 girls, is there enough living space inside and sleeping space?

    Cheers
    Steve

    Dunno about the floor of the Bergens tent but the Tentipi ground sheet has a zip (The Pro floor has a different shape)... I put the tent up and then toggle the floor in after by unzipping the floor and laying it around the pole.

    In terms of living area, it's 5.3m across but because of the tipi design, the edges of the tent are really just for gear storage only as they lack head room. I don't know if the living space would be enough or not but I have had 8 climbers sleeping in mine for a weekend with bouldering mats... I have also had weekends where Eloise and I took up all the room with camp cots and chairs!

    The massive benefit of a tipi over a bell tent is guy lines, unless it's the absolute worse weather imaginable, you don't need them on a tipi but bell tents need them all over regardless.

    I'm guessing nobody wants to buy my tipi then. Oh well, keeping it isn't such a bad thing :D

    I don't think that nobody wants to buy it... far from it.

    I'm really interested. the main draw for me is having a fire inside, and if I had one I would want the stove too and cost loads. So the cost of the tipi and stove is a bit scary for the amount of I would use it.
    Do you have a stove? or have you had a fire inside?

    Soooooo tempted ;)

    I see the frontier stove is cheaper but the flu doesn't look any good for passing through the top. Has anyone done or seen a 'good' mod to overcome this problem?
