Hi campers,

Plan to buy a Camplet classic for short trips but keen to go away March through Oct, weather permitting. Would be getting a Velcro bucket groundsheet with the outfit.

What heaters are nice and not noisy? Remember an old blow heater in the 80s that made a terrific racket.

Also, what sleeping bags could we get that can be used in all the seasons? Would prefer to buy once and minimise storage. What brands/types to recommend? For me and husband and 10 year old.

Thanks!

Hi DrTinkle,

We use a 2000 watt ceramic fan heater, which doesn`t sound too noisy. On chilly days we leave it on all night to keep the TT warm. You want one with a safety button underneath so if it`s knocked over it switches off. Aldi and Lidl have the one we have in stock a couple of times a year.

You can see the one we have in PHOTO TWO under the TV.

We use a double quilt as we found sleeping bags too constrictive.

Thanks Griff, looks nice and compact and your tent is quite big so it should heat the Camplet easily.

When we have electric hook up we use a small oil filled radiator. No noise from it and heats the trailer tent nicely. We use a duvet too. Without electric hook up we sit with a duvet over us! Need to buy a gas heater.

You certainly can stay on the forum as there is a section for FC`s named "Folding Camper Talk" and a "General Discussions" section ThumpUp

Nothing wrong with FC`s as is with anything camping it`s what suits people the best. You`ll have many a good holiday ThumpUp

We have loved our TT`s and if it wasn`t for age creeping up on me would have stayed with our current TT. We had thought about a FC, but decided to go straight to a caravan. So are off to the NEC to have a good look at the 2016 Sprite Alpine 4 SR.

Never thought we would ever go for a caravan, but at least the camping will continue and that`s what it`s all about BigGrin
