You all must be getting fed up of my posts by now. However we have just come back from our first holiday in the trailer tent. So thought I'd tell you all how it went, the wife isn't convinced trailer tents are her thing yet but we may get their at some point.
Well, I took delivery of the Quickstop SE on the 15th Aug and managed to have a quick look around the unit, however didn't get chance to put up the awning looking at videos we managed to have a vage idea how it all goes Unfortunately their was no instructions So a phone call to Raclet UK who managed to advise me and the help of this site.
The day of the holiday, I was already off work so managed to pack the car and trailer etc while my wife was at work we was on our way to a small site in Twywn, Mid Wales. This is a lovely site been a few times now, however once we arrived our one year old son was hungry well to be honest we all was so got the main Unit unfolded then come the fun of the awning, it seemed to take forever neither of us really new what we was doing as such but managed to get it up and then realized we was missing the small centre pole that holds the awning flap up and i don't think I had got the canvas taught enough looking at other awnings. But all in to get fully set up it taken about 1hr and half. Then we couldn't get a sky signal or a digital tv signal.
The next few days was great, however then came the wind and rain, everything was ok apart from feeling like it we was going to take off wasn't expecting to move so much the canvas was very noisy hoping to get it out and try setting it up again on a nice day once we have the replacement pole from raclet which our dealer is sorting Asap.
Hoping to try again in nicer wether, with instructions. I must admit I did enjoy it and the beds was awsome just think I need more experience setting up etc very difficult with a teething one year old who recently had his immunizations so bit stressful.
Packing away was nice and easy, although it had to be packed wet and its raining today so will have to be dried properly tomorrow.
