Decals have arrived from Zen Graphics. Very fast service, including a custom order to replicate a ‘California Beach’ decal of the time. Just need a dry day!

Hi all. I’m very interested in the Cinch hub tent (@Claremacrob posted about it above). Has anyone got one? If so what do you think?

There is an old thread on this (in fact I’d forgotten I’d posted to it :oops:). But has anyone recently got/used one?
We have a cinch hub. Love it. Easy to put up and even put down. Makes an easy storage / drying / toilet tent and keeps any clutter out of the Cali during trips. The doorway just fits under the awning for weatherproof access. It‘s a good compromise versus the hassle of a drive up awning tent which for us for too much of a faff.

Mine arrived last week and I was very impressed when I tried it in the garden, but I don't have the Cali yet so can't give the full picture. It ticks my boxes - v easy to erect and put away (once you have the knack), gives a decent amount of additional space with minimal faff. I like that it has openings (plus insect nets) on all 4 sides, so it can work whatever the limitations of the pitch. I went for the extras of the solar panel and an inner tent so it's a full-on sleeping space if/when we need it. @Nambola 's set up is exactly what I have in mind.

That looks interesting and very useful. Where did you get it from please?
You may want to send the eBay seller your photos as they’re a vast improvement on the advert’s.

Yes, I ummed and ahhed over this purchase for 6 months because the advertisers photos didn’t give me confidence about the quality of the product. I read the buyers reviews and they were positive so took the risk.

If I have a criticism it’s that the item is not colour coded to the grey materials of vehicle. But from a construction perspective it seems well made. The materials are good, though the hard plastics are a questionable gloss black with chrome edging.

Overall I’m very happy with it.

Looks pretty good considering. What happens when you want to spin the seats?

The unit is secured with Velcro to the van floor, so when you want to spin the seat you remove it spin them and replace it.

Another vote for the clinch hub, it’s great. They have a new version that has a optional inner tent
