    last year I bought the tentipi cp 9. I was in doubt between the 7 and the 9, but somebody who owned one told me to take the biggest size and I am glad I did so. If you buy the cp version even the smaller lavvu is only suitable for car or eventually canoe trips. I didn't buy an inner tent nor a groundsheet. In the wintertime I use a basha. the cotton polyester from Tentipi is waterproof and I suppose the Bison lavvu will also be. Cotton polyester will certainly be more comfortable than polyester and I would abolutely prefer it in combination with a tentstove. Camping in the snow with a tentstove is abolutely fantastic, you will love it

    greetings

    Hi meanderer,

    I'll come and collect from you.

    If you need any help when the pallets arrive, just let me know and I will come over and give you a hand.

    Hi Squidders,

    Looks a nice bit of kit.
    How many would this sleep comfortable? What’s the build quality like?

    Cheers
    Nigel

    Hi Nigel, mine would easily sleep 8 plus their gear... it's utter overkill.

    Well, I took it down in a hurry because it was getting dark and I didn't want to leave any of it in the front garden over night but first impressions are very good. I'm quite impressed.

    My thinking (before this thread) was that it's a local company in the north of Norway making tents for the local market... how bad can it be?!?

    Hi Squidders

    From the photo it looks pretty good. Have you got the stove?
    I had been looking at the moskoselkatan, but not that impressed with the price. It does look a much better deal.

    Cheers
    Nigel

    Yes, I have the stove also... it's very cute and chucks out LOADS of heat. nice little folding legs and all but 2 of the pipe sections fit inside the stove for transport... on the smaller models, the entire chimney may fit in side.

    Regarding the tentipi ones... the top of the range canvas ones are... in a word... lovely.

    These, I would say, match the lighter tentipi models for most functionality but I can't really draw a comparison with the quality as I simply don't know.

    Looks superb. :D

    At least it gives me an idea of what the "8" will look like.

    Sorry peeps...

    Just ran out of time so have done nothing on this for over a week :(

    Anyway, back now and should be getting payment details off in PMs tonight.

    The delay on the stoves is a nuisance but I will withold payment until they're ready to ship the second pallet.

    More later.

    Jon

    Hi Jon,

    Do you think delivery of the Lavvus will be before Christmas? And are the stoves still expected for Feb. next year?

    Sorry to be a pain but we had a trip planned for the New Year period :eek:

    Thanks for all your efforts :You_Rock_

    Cheers,

    Phil.
