Conway Festival Wide Body Trailer Tent 2006
I am selling our much loved family trailer tent due to kids growingup and downsizing to a 2 berth tent. The tent was first used in 2007, and hasprovided us with 9 fantastic holidays in France, Germany and Switzerland. Itwas last used in 2017, and has been carefully stored since.
The tent has been well cared for, and all inner tents andlinings have been removed, washed and stored indoors after every use. Thetrailer itself has always been stored in our garage, until 2 weeks ago with thearrival of our new trailer tent.
The Festival is a wide body trailer tent (150 cm wide insteadof the usual 140 cm) which Conway only used in a few models. It was also thelast model sold under the Conway brand. The advantages of this are large beds150cm x 220cm) and a kitchen unit with the wider 3 burner cooker. The paddedseats of this model are also incorporated in the sleeping compartments, givinga massive total sleeping width of 177cm.
The tent is being sold with:
2 under bed tents which will fit 2 small children each, orone larger child/small adult.
A Lafuma California Folding Table
2 Lafuma padded reclining chairs
A single metal step for easy access to the cabin
The tent can be put up in 2 parts as shown in the photos.The cabin is quick to put up and suitable for overnight stops, and short stays.The awning gives a large family sized space for comfortable living duringlonger stays. All the windows have curtains, which make the tent cosy and privatein the evenings, but allows lots of light and great views during the day.
The detachable kitchen unit give plenty of useful storage,and allows for easy preparation of family meals. There is a little rust on theburners, but all works very well.
The trailer body is in good condition, with some small markswhere the bed supports rest against it. When opened up the trailer provides comfortableseating for 4, with spacious storage lockers underneath. When travelling, the centrepart of the trailer is big enough to accommodate all the poles, awning canvas, andpegs. We also packed 4 folding chairs and 2 tables in there too. We neverneeded to pack camping equipment in the car when the 4 of us when away for up to5 weeks at a time.
The chassis, wheels, hitch and tyres are all in goodcondition, with a deep tread left on the tyres. The trailer always towed well.The lights are all in good working order, and the electrical connection to thecar has been upgraded to 13 pin, but an adaptor to 7 pin is included. At thefront of the trailer is a large fridge storage box. We used it to carry a 40 litrefridge, gas BBQ, and gas bottle, as well as tools, and other bits and pieces.There is a 12 v socket to connect up the fridge for when you are travelling.
The canvas is in very good condition and has never leaked.There are some spots of tree resin on the roof of the main cabin. This happenedthe first year we used the tent, but have never caused an issue in all theyears we have used it. A small amount of stitching has come undone in the frontleft corner of the awning, but as this is under the front canopy it does notaffect the water proofing. The canvas pocket for the middle canopy pole, hastorn on one side, but the does not affect the performance of the canopy. Thereis also a tear in the rear cabin window where it is sewn onto the zip, werepaired this with tape, and it worked well. These are all clearly shown in thephotos. We used the tent for 4 weeks in this condition with no problems, andall could be easily repaired. The Pegging rubbers were replaced in 2014 by alocal dealer, but some of the smaller rubbers for holding inner tents androlling up the windows are showing signs of wear. I have replaced many of thesemyself where I have spotted them, and I have included some extra new rubbers tomake future replacements when needed.
Current Price: £300.00
