Hi,

I recently purchased a polish lavvu and I have been looking at getting it modified like ChairmanMeow’s lavvu at the top of this thread. How much would these modifications cost?

Kind regards

Matt

Hi John l have come across this thread as I am looking for a couple of mods for our lavvu. We have been lucky enough to get a size 3 and want a couple of zips and a groundsheet. Please could you get in touch if you still do mods.
Thanks Nigel

Hi all first time poster here.

While looking through YouTube I came across the Simon a bloke in the woods video I thought the modifications he had done to his polish lavvu were great and it would be a great way to get outside with my 5 year old daughter only problem was I can't sew for toffee so a quick Google search and I found my way onto this forum. I got in touch with scotisha5 and told him what I wanted. So the modifications I had done were
1. Both halves sewn together
2. Zip to front entrance 8mm self healing nylon zip with metal sliders
3. Removable groundsheet fitted 560g pvc coated polyester light grey to add light to interior
4. Zips to armholes
5.sidewalls to raise height, sidewalls are fitted with an opening upright zip and sidewall zip, canvas is 360g fire rot mildew angle dirt resistant in green
6. Tin grommets removed and 25mm webbing loops fitted and nexus d rings
7. Webbing and d ring to top to enable it to be hung

Its amazing how much room there is now in the tent now and we took it out for the first time today and it works a treat. Really pleased with it and cheers scotisha5 :)

Sorry...a lot of excess what? Or is the tent slack?

Make sure that the tent is perpendicular, doors buttoned shut, and all pegging points are in turn pegged out very tight. I'm probably stating the blindingly....

I like the lavvu set drum tight, not saggy as is often seen. As such the door fastenings will also be tight, even if you have 2 halves of different sizes, determined by the no. of eyelets below the button fastenings.....

i am also looking for someone to help me with the mods of the lavu.
Were you succesful with your request?
No. I added a a zip etc myself. I'm fairly pleased with the result even though it's not pretty :) I stitched the 'back' of the lavvu together first to give me confidence in using the sewing machine on canvas.

Good on you, Grey.
Because I'm rubbish, I had someone put zips front AND back (great in hot weather!!). I use an external A frame and do away with the pole inside.
I'm always amazed by how many vids I see of people with them pitched inside out...…….:facepalm:

Getting in touch with:

I am not sure that you can. While he is still a paid up Maker here, his last posts were two years ago, and his last visit to the site was November 2019. As you can see, many have come here and asked how to get in touch, but no one has posted here that they have succeeded.


Sorry to be bearer of disappointing news.
