For the Trike Owners out there (Not suitable for a solo unless you live in Ireland).
For Sale is our Comanche Brisa trailer tent. Bought new from Barrons (now Discover) at Darlington 2 ½ years ago. Comanche trailer tents are made in Spain, but Discover are their UK agents, so no problems getting spares in the future.
This is a 2/4 berth trailer tent which has served us very well over the last two years, but we have seen something more suited to our needs, so time for a change.
Full details of the trailer, dimensions, capacities, how it goes up etc. (including a video of erection) can be found at http://www.comanche.biz/en_home.asp?g=en_model_brisa
It literally takes 5 minutes to put this tent up, i.e. for an overnight stop, and another 10 to 15 minutes to erect the awning. It is possible to do the whole thing on your own, but much easier for two people to do it.
The tent has a double bed in the lid and the living area also converts into a double bed if required.
It comes complete with Comanche awning giving a good liveable space for a family of three or four, or loads of room for a couple.
The trailer is one of the lightest available at 270 Kg and is fully braked because we tow it behind a Goldwing trike. It runs on 10” wheels, tyres are like new and the spare is unused. It has always towed perfectly, whether at motorway speeds, or on twisty narrow lanes around Ireland. Being so light, it will tow happily behind the smallest of cars or any trike, the brakes stop it pushing lighter vehicles like trikes and it all works very well.
We have toured all over the UK, Ireland and mainland Europe with this tent, as you can imagine, in Ireland it rained (a lot). The tent has always stayed dry and, as part of ongoing care and maintenance, we did treat the tent and awning with Fabseal at the beginning of this season. Always dry stored in my garage and has never been put away wet. There is a rack for a three way fridge on the A frame.
The only bad point is that we had to replace a couple of the locking devices on the awning poles, but everything functions as it should.
To buy new today, including brakes and awning, this tent would be in the region of £3,500, but looked after properly, as it has been, it should last many years.
You are welcome to come and see the tent up, or have a demonstration of putting it up. Looking for £1,500
