Our latest addition is a Model "Conway Corniche" trailer tent, we bought it recently second hand. We thought we would buy one in a 50% share with my adopted son Steve. The idea is to be able to visit other people and places. I expect you all know I have a caravan but its just too big (23ft) for me or Sue to tow, so had to rethink. As it is at the moment due to my breathing and the need for oxygen visiting is at least very difficult. With my emphysema, COPD and sleep Apnea I need approximately 12 to 14 hours oxygen every day, (sleep hours count in this). As you can imagine trying to carry enough cylinders for this amount over a few days is difficult to say the least. For this problem my oxygen suppliers (BOC) have supplied me a machine thats makes my oxygen for me, then I just carry small portable cylinders when away for a few hours. The problems others would have with this machine is the noise, it is quite noisy and is difficult to sleep with.Trying to stay in B&B or hotels would be a no no, so here we are a trailer tent with an electic hook up and the air machine inside the car with a long air pipe to tent, so keeping the machine noise down (hopefully). This set of pictures I "borrowed" from another site, its of the same model.

This is just a very quick blog to tell everyone that this week we have been out and bought ourselves a Second hand Trailer Tent !!!. At the moment we have no photo's of it, as its been too wet to take any, the last thing you need to do with any tent is to put it away wet (mildew & mould).This is a picture of one of the same model as ours.

Hi, thanks for dropping by at my blog,
This camping tent you showed is very handy, we always are going for camping the last 20 years, however we are relly thinking of something else , like going into hotels etc, but we have also a DOG, a very sweet one... and spoilt too.

You said you did not see my red hairs?.. have you looked at the sidebar on the right? there you can see me, covered behind my curled red hair!

Interesting blog you have,also an interesting story about your and your wife's hobbies (painting) I also like your car(s), we have a Saab 9.3 and a Volvo V40, because we drive a lot...thats why.

Bye greetings also to your wife :)

Just happen to stumble across your site... love the new tent... we just got a pop up camper but we don't use it as much and so will have to sell it and stick to our tent... take care...

Gday happy camping Bob may you have lots of fun and enjoy. We also did a lot of Caravan trips to the top end of Australia and met a lot of happy campers that had downsized from Van to campers for the same reason the van was getting to big to tow,and were still enjoying there trips with smaller vehicles... enjoy and have fun traveling around..
