Tarptents in Melbourne on 04/21/2010 19:40:57 MDT Print View

A few weeks ago I commented that I am not just a Tarptent fan/user any longer but also will look after the Australian customers when I can.
Part of this is that I have several Tarptents that I can demonstrate at my place here in Melbourne.
I do not sell directly, all purchases and warranties are still from Tarptent.com.
So if anyone is interested , please contact me at
franco at tarptent dot com

Congratulations, Franco, now you can play with the latest models all the time, ha ha!

Seriously, I am a Tarptent fan, too, and I enjoy reading about your adventures with them.

Well Ben you would have a free room and board if you visited. Not as exotic as the rest of your trips but not too bad either...
Come to think of it I am sure I would enjoy having Mary here too...

I have to say that finally playing with non-solo Tarptents has been an experience. The Rainshadow was a nice surprise. You can certainly fit 3 adults in there...

Ah, thanks, Franco. Oz is high on my list!

And of course, you'll need to visit LA LA Land too. I'll put an extra shrimp on the barbee for you. :)

Hi Nick
Thanks for the comments, nice pic.
In a way a lot of the TT customers are a bit like reps, or pimps as Ben likes to call them.
Because of the fanaticism, I called that the Church of Tarptent.
I hope at least that the two Moment owners there let the guy with the Lightsabre try the TT shelter for the extra space at no weight penalty.

it was a wonderful 6 day trip and the tarptents did great - perfect for the south australian conditions and a joy to use.

I had six great days using my Sublite in Big Bend Texas last month. Its a keeper, light and tight with a very quick setup.
