There’s no shortage of ideas out there to keep your tent tidy and comfortable and looking great and this selection of new furniture for 2020 will enhance your living and sleeping areas
Outwell Barmouth bedside cabinet
Expect to pay £39.99
A three-drawer bedside unit that lets you organise your essentials and keep them close at hand. Perfect for stashing socks and other small items of clothing, as well as phones and chargers, etc. The inners have an easy-to-clean polyester fabric and the three drawers have webbing handles. The real beauty of this cabinet is that it all folds flat, making it easy to slot into the car boot.
Helinox Chair One
Expect to pay TBC
The original, award-winning Chair One from Helinox packs smaller and lighter than a bottle of wine, but is strong enough to hold up to 23st. The new 2020 version of the chair retains all the best bits – including lightweight DAC legs and tough fabric – but it now comes in a dazzling selection of eye-catching new colours and patterns.
Vango Hyde DLX chair
Expect to pay £80
The Hyde DLX is a classic steel-frame, high-backed camping chair that features Vango’s new Dura-Lite fabric – an air mesh surface designed to provide the maximum comfort and durability. The steel frame is reassuringly sturdy and it folds flat for storage and transport. The adjustable cushion gives neck or lumbar support and the seat and backrest are padded for more comfort.
Outwell Padres Storage Rack L
Expect to pay £74.99
The smart two-tone fabrics and lightweight bamboo frames of the Padres range of storage furniture wouldn’t look out of place in your conservatory at home. The storage rack is a multifunctional piece of kit, that comes with three different-sized baskets for keeping your tent neat and tidy. It folds flat for transport with the top frame acting as a carry handle. The storage range also includes a basket, lidded box and laundry basket and there’s a matching collection of kitchen table units, too.
Zempire Roco Low Rider
Expect to pay £110
Zempire’s new Roco range of camping chairs has a real touch of natural style. Durable and lightweight, the chairs have frames made from beechwood imported from Germany, combined with breathable canvas. They have a weight capacity of 150kg and come with a foldaway cup holder. The chair is also available as a lounger-style and as a more traditional, aluminium-framed camping chair – but still with the canvas seat material.
Zempire Eco kitchen unit
Expect to pay £80
They used to say that family camping trips involve packing everything but the kitchen sink. Well, these days, that comes too. The Eco kitchen is a PVC sink and MDF worktop that attaches to the side of Zempire’s Eco Fold single or double storage unit and creates an area for either washing up or food prep at your tent. A useful feature is the foldaway rubbish bag holder.
Kampa Dometic Mini tub chairs
Expect to pay £24.98
Kids love to have their own dedicated camping kit, and these new mini versions of the popular Tub chair are perfect for little campers. The chairs are available in three colourful designs – unicorns, woodland creatures and animal traffic. They come with a carry bag and fold down small, and are light enough for children to carry themselves.
Robens Adventure coffee table
Expect to pay £30.99
Robens has become expert at creating camping equipment that looks really good while ticking all the boxes for quality and practicality. And this is yet another addition to the range. With the round bamboo tabletop and gold-coloured aluminium legs, this side table will add a touch of glamour to your camping set-up, yet is quick and easy to assemble, is lightweight and will take up very little room in the car boot when it’s packed away in its own carry bag.
Kampa Dometic Zero Concrete tables
Expect to pay £137.50 - £206.25
These smart looking new tables from Kampa Dometic come in two styles (rectangular or oval) and will add a real touch of class to your camping set-up. The concrete-effect top might look like it will be heavy but it’s actually made from a fibreglass honeycomb composite and, with the aluminium frame, these are actually incredibly lightweight. The rectangular version comes in a medium or large size and folds in half for easy packing in the car, while the oval version is slightly larger and doesn’t fold.
