Do I Have a Tent Buying Addiction?
« on: April 12, 2021, 06:14:36 AM »
After being told "No, you're not buying another tent you have loads and don't need another!" by SWMBO I went and bought a Vango Banshee Pro 300.

Now the list goes:
Vango Icarus 500DLX
Vango Turini 200
Vango Gamma 300
Vango Spirit 200+
Vango Banshee 200
Vango Banshee 300
Vango Banshee Gear Store
Reggata Pop up thing (pink and grey with butterflys for my Daughter)
And a few adventure tarps used as canopies with the tents, not ones that are big enough to sleep under.

I'll admit I'm a bit of a fan of the Vango brand but the irony is I used to sell Vango in a motorbike dealership but I never bought any of my camping gear there. (We sold camping gear to go with the idea of adventure motorcycling)

The larger Banshee 300 was to replace the 200 but as yet I haven't tried the 300 to confirm the 200 being surplus to requirements.

Yes you have issues. When your tent collection has a greater floor area than your house then I would say it was time to seek the help of a specialist in a field...
