It looks like it is the category of "too good to be true" at that price including postage! :unsure:

That's not disimilar to the one my friend had on another allotment site. The frame is pretty good but the door zips will probably only last 2 years. Still a steal though as you can just buy a proper cover in the future and build a doorframe to fit as well.

Exactly what I thought, my replacement cover cost more than that! At least with ebay you can usually get your money back if things go wrong.
I would have taken a punt on it, if I hadn't just bought the cover  :lol:

I've got exactly this polytunnel, 6mx3m and it's brilliant, but I paid £206 including postage.  I'd be wary of this one;  as mikem and mum have said: it looks too good to be true.

Sensible! I had one of these and it lasted for years (5 as I recall) Securing it into the ground is key, and we found long stakes cable-tied to the frame inside on the corners did the job a treat :D

That's a massive shame, at least ebay have jumped in quickly.
