VW Camper Van Tent – an exact replica of a 1960s van


If you can't afford the real thing for the summer, this VW Camper Van Tent might prove an able and equally cool substitute.

It's actually officially licensed from Volkswagen, a four-person tent and indeed, a 1:1 replica of a 1965 VW Camper Van. For your money, you get the design, all that space (you can even stand up in it), with two zip-separated double-sized rooms within and top-end waterproofing. It even has doors that open just like the original van.

Everything is included – tent, fly, poles, ropes / pegs and set-up instructions – and there's a choice of three colours (yellow, red and blue). £299 is the price and you can pre-order at Firebox right now. More images over the page.

Zandra Rhodes Teepee for Millets

Zandra Rhodes teepee

Think of someone associated with camping and the outdoors life and Zandra Rhodes definitely isn't first person that springs to mind. Surely another sign (if you needed one) that camping is now considered cool is the fact she's now done a range with Millets which includes this striking teepee. 

The teepee is decorated with the bright colours and the bold pattern you'd associate with Rhodes and the design draws on her love of Native American folk art. The teepee has a central pole and sewn-in ground sheet, though it's not clear how many people it sleeps, and is sure to be as well seen at the festivals this year as the Celia Birtwell or the Cath Kidston tents from previous years, not least because the shocking pink colour should help you spot it easily. 

The teepee is the first in Rhodes' range for Millets that will eventually also include chairs, wellies and a flask. It costs £119.
