Camperite, Colchester

Camperite has been trading selling tents for over 30 years from its location in Marks Tey near Colchester. The accessory shop is always being improved and a large extension was added to allow more space to stock those all-essential bits of equipment. Outside there is space to erect up to 30 tents with a mixed range of Kampa, Outwell, and Vango so that customers can have a good look round and see the models performing in realistic outdoor conditions.
