And the winners are...
If you follow our Twitter or Facebook accounts you'll have noticed the excitement building around our competition to win a Tentsile Vista over the last few weeks. With just a few simple clicks, six lucky people have so far become proud owners of our 'portable treehouse' - the new, stackable tree tent poised to take the camping world by storm. So, without further ado, let's introduce them. Matt Williams, Matthew O'Brien and Lydia Rogers are all outdoor enthusiasts who retweeted us to win, and the winners from Facebook are Johnathan Williams, Anca Stefan and Erin Marie. We know they can't wait to trial their Vistas, and we can't wait to hear how they get on!
So, what can our winners expect from their prize? The Tentsile Vista offers a unique outdoor experience by combining adventure, comfort and a new method of communal camping. While the basic Vista sleeps three people, by purchasing extra floors this can be tripled to allow for a large group to join the fun. The roof of the tent is a removable fly sheet that facilitates group star-gazing and spotting shapes in the clouds, and it provides fantastic ventilation as well. The floor is a spacious triple hammock, accessed via either the hatch in the centre of the floor, or through any of the sides, and it can be suspended above any ground conditions. With the rainfly roof extending outwards and upwards away from the floor, the porch area is a generous 110 square feet/10 square metres, and the insect mesh creates an additional dry storage space for personal belongings or clothes that have properly endured a hike and need to dry out. Full specifications are available here. Shipping on the tent is free worldwide, so anyone from anywhere can get their hands on one of these fantastic outdoor homes.
Vistas are priced at approx. $680CAD / £380GBP / €480EUR / $720AUD, but if you want to be in with a chance of being the next person to win Tentsile gear for free, follow us on social media to get involved in promotions as they come up. Our Facebook page is https://www.facebook.com/Tentsile and you can follow us on Twitter at https://twitter.com/tentsile - both pages are full of great pictures, anecdotes and information from the Tentsile team and our friends around the world.
To our Tentsile Vista winners, happy camping! To all our other readers - good luck in future competitions, and keep in touch on Facebook and Twitter - we love hearing from you.
