New Family Tent – Outwell Nevada 5 birth
So with the addition on young Pepper at Christmas we are now unable to book into hostels, most B&Bs and bunkhouses. So i was left with 2 options a family tent or a caravan.
Not wanting to park a caravan on my drive i popped down to go outdoors tonight and came home with this for just short of £200. Not bad, managed to haggle 20% off with the manager.
Anyway here is a little info a picture

Update : First thoughts
I found a video on youtube and followed it to test pitch it in the backgarden. Pitching was very easy, i was worried about putting up such a beast of a tent. The build quality is good and i am very pleased with the features of the tent. Taking the tent down was soo easy, took about 15 minutes with two of us.
Update – Sept 2010
We love this tent and the ease at which you can pack it away but one if the cords inside the pole snapped when packing away the tent. There was no tension on the pole which meant it came as a bit of a suprise. Anyway its under guarnatee for a year so a replacement pole wont be a problem. UPDATE – Go Outdoors fixed the pole in a jiffy and its good as new again.
