Hello All,
This is my first post on the forum, having been a visitor on and off for a while now.

Having been given my parents old Albatros Jr I, last weekend I unpacked and erected it for the first time in something like 20yrs! Totally unsure of what I would find I was delighted to find the tent itself in amazing condition. Really nice green. Credit to my dad for attention to detail in packing and storing. :respect:

Speaking to Mum it was purchased in about 1984 and has seen not much more than 8 weeks use in the next 33yrs. Which probably also explains how kind time has been.

Before I can share any pics I do have one issue, the horizontal support pole (Blauw?) is incomplete. Does anyone know where I can buy or have made a replacement? Any leads/ideas would be gratefully received. I have many happy memories of camping round Brittany in this tent and am really exited about sharing the experience of camping in a proper tent with my kids.

Thank you

Nick

I contacted DeWaard directly and they no-longer have the poles in stock. So as recommended I shall try the home made option. I have ordered an adjustable steel, awning pole and got some c-clips from a local DIY store.

Lets see how it goes - I am not known for being good at making things... :lol:

Update: I have a friend who I never really knew what his job was - other than he makes things. I thought from wood. Turns out he works at a sheet metal factory and can make me a couple of these clasps - so I have spares. :lol:

Hopefully I should have them for the weekend so will post a picture with the finished article.
