Quechua Base Seconds

Used as awning for camper van and it's brilliant

Why can I not get the "velcro" in ground sheet?

used for 2 to 8 weeks Love this product - very quick to put up/take down. Size is perfect as awning for my camper van.
Would love to be able to get correct size ground sheet that used to be available to velcro into the product.
Would also have liked it in previously available grey - a great pity these are no longer produced.

So simple to put up (& down with practice)

Pops up in no time at all

used for More than 2 years I have 3 of these that connect into an L shape. One lounge, one bedroom and one for the bikes. Bought for holidays with my daughter and so simple to put up. Allows us to spend our time as we please. I have two bedroom inserts and two ground sheets too.

Brilliant idea!

Goes up in 2 minutes!

used for 2 to 8 weeks I went to Italy at the beginning of June 2016 and all the Italians had one, and you know what they say 'When in Rome do as the Romans do!' I checked I could get one in the UK before coming home or else I would have bought one there, luckily Decathlon sell them. Bought one, it arrived quickly with the couriers keeping me informed so arrived OK. Have used it more or less every weekend since in all weathers as both a tent to sleep in and a drive away awning for my VW T4 camper van. It more or less puts itself up. It can be tricky to fold down into a circle took me 3 trips and lots of U tube watching to get it back in the bag but even so still got it small enough and flat enough to travel back ok. It's got loads of features like fly screens etc and if you are in a group and everyone has one you can make a honeycomb like kingdom by putting them door to door. I knew as soon as I saw one it was the one for me and it hasn't disappointed, I absolutely love it. Finally compared to other drive away awnings it is a bargain price!

Not same as picture

Great idea easy to put up amd down. However the picture advertised shows the pull out sections going down to ground but thru only zip to halfway down. This means that when you put 2 together which decathlon say they are designed to do - they don't properly work as have a bit of a gap.
Also it has velcro inside for the special groundsheet that is no longer sold. Please re introduce it.

Experienced camper with this tent

Up in seconds, great for lone parents.

used for More than 2 years Got this tent as husband does not like camping and I wanted a tent that I could put up on my own and tall enough to stand up in. Kids at the time were 7 and 9 and were reluctant helpers. Now teenagers, I have two tents - this one for me and another one with the bedroom attached for them. I got a ground sheet with my tent which you attach with Velcro. I prefer this rather than it be 'built in' as you can wash them really well ect. A good tent to get quick cover in terrestrial rain. Out of the bag and up. However, does need to be pegged down. I always have a cheap festival pop up tent handy for bad weather, chuck the kids in and set the big tents up when weather permits. Hope this blog is informative. My main advise is to watch the video on how to get it down and get it into the bag. It is doable but you need a tutorial here or will end up abandoning it !! I watched the video 10 plus times and was quickly proficient but needed that tutorial, I am 55 and 5' 3''. I can do this anyone can.

Wind protection We test all of our tents in a wind tunnel with a rotary table to expose each side of the tent to the wind. A properly assembled tent with all the stays in position around the tent should remain habitable;e under wind speeds measuring 50 km/h at ground level.
Waterproofing Like all Quechua tents, the waterproofing has been particularly well-developed, approved in lab tests (ENTIRE TENT tested with 200 litres of water per hour and sqm!) and on field tests. (PU-coated polyester roof with heat sealed watertight taped seams). 2 twinned Base Seconds were approved in terms of waterproofing in the same conditions.

Stock advice STORAGE - after use or cleaning, do not store your tent until it is PERFECTLY DRY to prevent odours and mould from forming.
Care instructions: 1 CLEANING - if needed, clean the tent with soapy water, then rinse (with a hose if possible). Then leave to dry completely. 2 TREE SAP STAINS - Can be very hard to remove Once the stain is fully dry, gently scratch it off while holding an ice cube on the inside of the fabric to make the sap brittle so it will come off more easily. 3 STORAGE - after use or cleaning, do not store your tent until it is perfectly dry to prevent odours and mould from forming.
Guarantee : All of our tents can be repaired in your local Decathlon workshop.
