One of the best 2 person, all season tents. In excellent condition. No tears, rips, all guy lines intact.
The only negative I can see after 25 years is that the floor seam sealing is coming adrift in a few places.
last used in 2018 on the SCT and no leaks then that I recall.
Comes with all pegs and poles.
$400
PM me if you are interested.

It seems to have changed colour over the decades.
Is it the Army Olive drab colour or the grey/green?

Yeah I never really noticed any colour change. More likely due to the aspect of the actual picture and sunlight. Certainly not Army Olive more dark grey green.

Ok maybe $400 is too much? Anybody want to make a reasonable offer?

I've been unable to sell my own FairyDown Plateau of the same vintage; even when I dropped the price to $250-
Good luck
It's now my "loaner" tent I just warn people to treat it gently.
