To the good old camper

We start by thanking the old man for his helping hand; yes, we say “the old guy” in sports circles (sporty, me?).

Thanks to a quick, well-done little partnership, we found ourselves with an “expedited account” which gives us the right to 14% on all the stores, in exchange we will provide them with a few photos to populate their catalog. It seems to me to be an exchange of good practices.

Note for those who do not know “the old one”:


To the old camper is a string of stores French of sports and leisure articles based in Paris, founded by Roger de Rorthays in 1941. It is one of the pioneers in this activity in France.

This brand has a group of 28 stores in a square rue des Écolesrue Du Sommerardrue Jean-de-Beauvaisrue Saint-Jacques, in the 5e district of Paris. It also has stores in the cities of Lyon (10 stores), Sallanches, Thonon-les-Bains, Toulouse, Albertville, Strasbourg, Marseille, Grenoble, Chambéry.


Thanks Wikipedia :).

Après avoir épluché leur site et s’être déplacés sur place une fois auparavant, on y achète tente, réchaud, sacs de couchage, matelas autogonflants, popote, évier (eh oui!), vestes en gore-tex, polaires, frontales… Le tout pour moins de 2000€. Oui, on a passé la carte bleue en deux fois 🙂

Vous verrez tout ca bientôt dans un article dédié au matos !

In short, we had a good time, tiring, but nice – the sellers are really competent and pleasant.

In any case, it’s not every day that we fall for the old camper like that.
