Conway Canterbury DL Trailer Tent 1992/1993 Model.. Condition is used.
This trailer tent has been owned by my parents for well over a decade now. They haven’t used it for the last couple of seasons and have had it stored in my garage where it has been untouched other than me opening it up recently to take pictures. They have subsequently moved abroad and no longer require the trailer tent hence why it is up for sale.
As is obvious in the pictures it has a slight ding to the front left, I believe this was from someone reversing in to it years ago and my parents have used it as is since. It is very thin aluminium I believe and held in with pop rivets. I reckon if drilled out you could straighten the panel very easy and then use a bit of standard car body filler to hide any blemishes and touch up with some paint. It doesn’t effect the towing or use-ability of the trailer tent, it is more of a cosmetic issue.
On opening it up and looking at the main canvas there are a couple of small repairs that will need to be done to the side panels, the roof looked to have a couple of pinhole size parts that need a small repair. It will most likely need to be waterproofed also on completion of the repairs as it has sat for a couple of years. I will include the necessary Kampa repair tape required to fix the issue so the new owner can crack on with getting this ready for camping in this summer. I’m fairly certain there will be plenty of information or videos online to assist with this.
It has the inner tents (which could do with a wash) for the main double beds and also the additional two single tents that go under each double bed for children so this is a 6 berth tent. It has a 1m and 2m awning extension which massively increases your living space.
Being the DL variant it has a kitchen unit attached to the rear which is removable when pitching up. This will need some attention also but nothing major. I have removed the rubber gas tube as this was very old and didn’t trust it so new owner will have to purchase one if required however they are extremely cheap to buy.
I have also removed the square frame at the front as this was very rusted and was no use to anyone. It wasn’t used for anything and was just an eyesore. The towing arm has lots of room for a storage box or even a bike rack and has a plate with holes already welded to it to support additional loads. The trailer is galvanised and is still in great condition.
I have purchased a brand new Dark Blue Travel cover which will be provided with the sale as the one currently on the trailer tent is very tatty and I don’t think it will survive a journey. I will also include a brand new tub of fabsil and the kampa repair tape already mentioned.
I’m sure I have missed out some information however questions and viewing are welcome and encouraged. This is a small project but I’m certain in the right hands it can be fixed up and cleaned/waterproofed in a few days or couple of weekends ready to be used.
