At TentBox, we love building a community and meeting like minded people. It’s absolutely one of the best parts of our job.

Recently we got to chat to TentBox Lite owner, Anthony, to hear his TentBox story.

What’s your setup like?

We have a TentBox Lite on top of my Green Skoda Yeti, 2015.

What made you get a TentBox?

Well I’ve been retired now for 6 years, and I’ve always camped since I was a boy.

Over the last 30 years I’ve had tents, caravans, motorhomes…you name it i’ve had it!

They all had their good and bad points, but I needed something more usable and the TentBox is just that – usable and not too expensive.

And the best thing of all is that I can go anywhere with it. Car parks, wild camping, stopping in laybys etc. It’s great!

Top tip: You can use the Park4Night app to find the best places to stop with your TentBox.

Who do you go on adventures with?

I normally go alone or with family.

I have 4 daughters and 7 grandkids, so it’s always fun! They’re just getting into the camping stuff and my brother is a big fan too. He’s a big adventurer – he’s been up Everest, but he still loves a day out in the TentBox with his bro.

What are your future plans with the TentBox?

Well, the last 3 years have been tough for everyone, but I got cancer and had to have chemo and radiotherapy so I was out of action for a while.

We’re hoping to do some big adventures now I’m back and ready to go. So far we’ve done a few trips locally, but we’re planning a big UK road trip, stopping off at a couple of places on the way.

We also plan to do the NC500, the TentBox Campout in New forest and maybe Cornwall for a couple of weeks.

Really looking forward to it!
