Over The Moon Tents often make use of surplus military equipment.  It is a good form of recycling that enables us to purchase military grade equipment that is often superior to alternate commercially available equipment.

As well as our vintage ex -army marquee for hire, we also use old ammo boxes for carrying metal tent-anchor spikes; ex-helicopter cargo nets for securing loads to trailers; large holdall sacks for our cushions; ropes and bungees for securing sooo many things; a Sankey trailer for towing a generator; and surplus clothing can make for very hard wearing work-wear.

 We love scouring surplus stores wherever we find them to see what the latest gear may be in, and it’s fun figuring out uses for stuff the military no longer needs.
