The Sibley 400 Deluxe Tent is something I came across a few weeks ago and immediately bought on impulse – despite the fact that I had no plans to go camping and that it’s currently the middle of winter in my part of the world.
At €449 each, the Sibley 400 Deluxe certainly isn’t the cheapest tent you could buy – that said, you’ll be hard pressed to find another tent that you’ll actually want to permanently move into. Each Sibley tent is made from waterproof heavy-duty cotton canvas (320 g/m²) and has a heavy-duty waterproof ground sheet made out of PVC (540 g/m²).
The tent you see here is the Sibley 400 Deluxe Tent, when erected it measures 13.12 feet wide by 8.20 high and 2 feet high around the edges, the total floor space is 133 ft² – which is actually better than my first 3 apartments.
You can easily fit 2 queen-sized beds into the Sibley 400 Deluxe but if we’re honest, you’ll be better off with 1 bed and some wood/canvas furniture – preferably with a small humidor, a sleeper trunk full of sherry and pith helmet. Just in case.
