Second what Jase says. Some bloke does a challenge at one of the shows where he gets the thing up in under 60 seconds.. That's not pegged out mind, but gives you an idea. 

and 150 is a good price as well, we paid a lot more Embarrassed

We had one with the poles you slide through. Fucked it off after the first outing and bought a Kyham !

We've got a motordome classic.

I find it's great as mentioned above, can be put up on your own. You can also take it down on your own even in the wind by leaving the guys up until it's collapsed. Very handy with a wife who doesn't like the rain!!!

Ours has been very durable

Good luck

Dave

After speaking to a few seasoned campers I am pretty confident a motordome classic is the way forward and am slightly gutted to have missed out on a bargain off Jason through a bit of naivety but you live and learn and at least I now know what to look for,thanks for the input

Somerset Camping seem to have the best deals but a quick Google will bring up other sellers to compare prices.

If the motordome is to small you can add  this to make more room
