Crotec Wagon With Shade Canopy Review (Folding Camping Trolley)

Before we went to Larmer Tree Festival, Daddy insisted that we invested in a folding camping trolley that we would be able to use to move our camping equipment in and, more importantly, that we could use to pull the kids in during our weekend away.  As we thought a camping trolley would be something that we would use a few times, we decided to buy one.  After some research online, I found the Crotec Wagon on Amazon which looked perfect for us.

The Crotec Wagon was such a good investment and we found that a lot of people stopped and asked us about our camping trolley while we were at the festival.  Even people without children were impressed with it!  The girls loved all the attention too, and were often spotted giving a royal like wave to other festival goers as they passed by.

The Crotec Wagon is compact and lightweight, so it went in our car really easily, along with the tents and all the other stuff you need when camping with a family of four.

The other really fab feature about the Crotec Wagon is it folds out and goes down in one really easy manoeuvre.  There’s no faffing around at all, and no assembly either.  The four sturdy panels at the bottom did a great job of supporting the weight of all your camping equipment or the children we wanted to pull around.  Sometimes you can even fit both in!

The rear basket and extra pockets on this camping trolley are great for putting all the things you need for the kids in, so we didn’t have to carry extra changing bags or supplies with us during the festival.  We could just load up everything we needed into our camping trolley and go and explore the festival for the day.

The Crotec Wagon is also really easy to manoeuvre.  As it’s a lightweight camping trolley, pulling it wasn’t difficult, even with 2 kids in it.  It turned really easily if you wanted to change direction, and the handle was a good length giving enough walking room for the person pulling it.

The only thing that camping trolley didn’t solve was the issue we have with sibling rivalry.  We’d hoped the Crotec Wagon might have been supplied with some festival magic to help our kids get along better, but this is the only area it failed in.

We bought the Crotec Wagon ourselves, but I’ve decided to share this review as it did make our lives so much easier and so many people stopped to ask us questions about it.  We paid around £105 for it from Amazon, and I have to admit is was money well spent.  It definitely made our camping experience with the children a lot easier. If you are interested in buying a camping trolley, I would recommend this one without a doubt.

If you would like to see the Crotec Wagon in action, I also made a YouTube video sharing our experience.  Do have a watch so you can see the camping trolley at work.
