Company Background & Products
Visit their site - http://www.sunnflair.com/
Sunncamp tents are manufactured by Sunnflair www.sunnflair.com who also make outdoor furniture, outdoor kitchens and accessories. Sunncamp have been in the tent making business for more than 20 years but they’re not considered to be the market leader.
Sunncamp do provide a large range of tents but they don’t really cater for the high performance end of the camping spectrum. They produce a huge selection of dome tents, plus trailer tents, frame tents and a relatively new range called APS (Advanced Portable Structure) tents. The APS is basically a touring tent that is quick to erect, compact to transport but claims not to skip on the comfort factor.
Each model is relatively easy to erect, they all come with instructions and have spring linked sections which help in the assembly of a reinforced frame. Some also have colour coded poles and pole sleeves to help with finding the correct location. Another time saving device included on some tents is the inclusion of pre-attached guy ropes.
Many of the Sunncamp tents use Durawrap poles which utilizes technology that wraps the longitudinal fibres in a woven sheath. This sheath helps to make the poles stronger and more flexible, preventing splintering over long term use.
The zips are usually the first part of a tent to cause problems due to the fact they often get the most use, so Sunncamp have tried to counteract this with sturdy self-repairing zips on all openings.
All of the inner tents come equipped with sewn in groundsheets, making them fully enclosed units. They also feature an internal storage pocket or a gear loft in the apex.
Sunncamp tents are quite competitive when it comes to price and often found in the middle of the price range. However, if you plan to go camping in four seasons you might want to spend a bit more and choose a more expensive brand that can weather all conditions.
You can’t buy tents directly from their website www.sunnflair.com but it does refer you to a list of dealers who sell their products, some online.
