    Something like the Zircon 15

    Hi, sadly just pipped at the post on an old style zircon 15 on ebay, which we were hoping to buy to run some courses in our woods and also potentially house forestry workers while coppicing. Does anyone know if there is anything else similar? It needs to be quick and easy to put up and take...
