Would hardly call a galaxy a car... :wink:

Cars are actually freezing cold to sleep in too.
What we really need is one f&^£ off big mess tent with a load of beds in. Easy.

I have a very large tent if you want me to bring it, the 2 rear rooms sleep 5 and those rooms only take up a third of the tent - I can easily park my VW Touran in the other section. whole tent is 3.5 x 5m and 2.1m head room.

It could easily work as a food tent/gazebo but it is heavy and takes an hour or so to pitch.

Let me know if we need it.

I'll am already bringing my small 4 man tent in case the car gets too cold. Happy to share if you don't mind my snoring and farting. :shock:

Think I will sleep in the car too.. :) :) :D

Car will be fine if its not too cold and you have a good bag, but they stay about the same temp as outside, whereas even a cheap tent will be a couple of degrees warmer from your body heat. This actually makes quite a difference.

I am just taking a three man dome tent, which is pretty small and quick to put up/down.
I have a six man sprawling dome tent with foyer, lounge and two beds, but think this is overkill here
:lol:

If you leave the engine running you should be ok.
