Attached is my review of the Trigano Olympe, which I hope provides useful information to those thinking of buying one.

We've just recently had a Olympe 2014 model. Took it out for its 1st time @ Charmouth.
As a 1st time with a TT it went well. There wasn't too much to remember & turned out not to be stressful at all in putting it up. It was fantastic to use, spacious & comfortable. Beds were comfortable too.
We had an issue with a leaky waste water pipe as the type of hose used is not a good fit to the plug hole outlet. There are plenty of options in terms of windows/doors to have closed, open or partially.
We had 1 day of rain (all day) where the new canvas took a battering. There were several wet patches, some inside. But after the following dry day you could see the canvas had tightened & dried well. It's now effectively waterproofed. It didn't feel drafty & was well ventilated still.
Putting back was a doddle. It's kinda fantastic that a 25 sq metre unit fits back into such a small package. It's very simple to do & not at all a chore.
It was also my first time towing. It didn't pull or shift around. Very stable & size-wise nothing to be worried about.
We're a family of 2 adults & 2 kids & this TT was perfect. We will have many fantastic holidays with this.

Indeed, the Olympe is a fantastic family TT.

The sink waste can leak as they are not sealed properly. What I did was to take apart the bit the plug goes in and smear some silicone around the top and underneath the hole in the sink where the plug hole is. Re-assemble the plug hole, wipe any excess silicone with a paper towel and try to keep water away from it for 24 hours. Hope it makes sense.

To secure the waste pipe to the plug hole outlet I used to use a thumb turn jubilee clip...saved messing with a screwdriver.

With those two points done we never had a drop of water leaking.

Hope it helps.

I'll prob get my 'DIY' on this weekend & tackle that. I'll check both the plug hole seal & improve on the fitting of the hose so it's tighter fit. Cheers.

If you have a little DIY shop near you they may sell the thumb turn jubilee clip, (also called a butterfly hose clip).

You can get a pack from places like EBAY for a couple of £`s.
