Tasty tents on new French menu

French company Cabanon has launched its new 2009 trailer tents and tents – and has announced the welcome news that it will be introducing an exciting range of Bardani tents exclusive to Cabanon’s UK dealers.

Cabanon, known for the superb quality of its tents, has introduced a small version of its popular Stratus trailer tent. The Manga comes with a steel frame to take the weight of the cotton tent and is available with or without a kitchen unit.

The Tabora is a brand new quick-pitching folding camper that comes with an optional awning or sun canopy. The unit is set to appeal to tourers and small families.

On the tent side, Cabanon has introduced the Vision to compete to provide a top-end product for campers considering up-market cotton tents from rival manufacturers. The Vision has been designed with few frills and returns to the back-to-basic values of traditional family camping in a quality tent.

Camping magazine has tested Bardani tents in the past and has been impressed with this Dutch brand. Cabanon showcased four tents – two from the cotton Comfort line designed for family camping, and two from its Trekking line that uses synthetic materials to reduce weight and pack size.

In the Comfort line, the Livigno tunnel should prove popular with touring couples and small families looking for the luxury provided by cotton. The large Esperanza provides a stand-alone bedroom in the living area that can be removed to create a huge area for family and friends to socialise.

The Trekking line consists of the Rocca and Bormio  – neat tunnel tents ideal for car touring.

The Cabanon launch follows the news that the company has gone into administration. Under French law, this will allow Cabanon time to restructure itself to cope with the global credit crisis and create a firm base from which to trade into 2009.
