    5. WATERPROOFING
      Like all Quechua tents, waterproofing has been carefully designed, tested in laboratory conditions (WHOLE TENT tested under 200 litres of water per hour and sqm!) and on test field trips. (PU coated polyester roof, all seams are waterproofed with thermobonded strips.). The waterproofing of 2 paired Bases Seconds has been validated in the same test conditions.
    6. WIND RESISTANCE
      We test our tents in a wind tunnel on a turning platform to expose each side to the wind. A well pitched tent with all guy ropes rigged around the tent, must remain habitable in wind speeds of 50 km/h measured near the ground (force ).
    7. ENTRANCE/EXIT
      2 large doors that can be used to connect to a small tent, family tent or van. Side door that enables you to enter and leave the shelter even when 2 tents are connected.

      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.

      Thanks to its 5 sqm surface, 4 or 6 people can easily sit around a table.

    • Easy to pitch, sturdy in harsh weather

      Used for 2 to 8 weeks
      Very pleased with this. Used it so far with a pop up tent underneath one awning edge, but I intend mainly to use it over the car. Lots of room inside, very sturdy even battered by storm winds. Incredibly easy to pitch with one disabled adult and one able bodied person, and took very little effort to pack down too.
      Ease of pitching
    • Great for camper van

      I've used several times now and its a great bit of kit, at a very good price. I use as a standalone next to my Trafic camper van and no need to faff about with drive away awning. I use 2 extra guys on the poles as you need them really. I've also taken the ground sheet out, it's just clipped in. Copes well in heavy rain.
      Easy to put up
    • Simple and fast

      Used for 1 week or less
      We cut one door of so we could fix it on the caravan with awning beed ,
      A little sowing and glueing and it fits great,
      Same height as a vw camper van.
      Well made
      Pegging holes on front of ground sheet needed
    • Great living room with height

      We already have the pop up base seconds which we love but this is far more spacious to stand in (same floor area) and almost as easy to erect. Copes pretty well with torrential rain but we noticed some internal moisture.There are three door options for when it's hot including side door with mesh screen. The ground sheet is not sewn in but provides a skirt that the vertical sides overlap for rain to run off. This also keeps the air moving!
      The light canvas and plastic window all ensure an enjoyable living area, combined with good height all round to stand in, cook and 'live' in.
      Height, light, doors, easy assembly
    • Great bit of kit
