Easy Camp Tempest 500 2017


What did I think?

This is a great tent, it is not too large, as some of the inflatables ones are, so you will not lose too much of your boot space, or require a roofrack, trailer, etc.

It is very simple to pitch, just peg out the four corners and side pegs, then inflate each beam individually and up it went. Then it is a simple case of pegging out the guy lines and you don't even have to worry about fitting the bedroom pods as these were already in place.

It took us around 15 minutes to erect this tent and once it was up we found it to very spacious and perfect for a family of four.

The groundsheet is sewn in for extra warmth , etc and the tent has two entrances so you can pitch with a door where you wish and also allows air flow for those hot days. There is plenty of headroom too, so no aching neck when walking in the tent.

There is a lamp hanging point and if you want to use electric hookup then there is an access point for this too. The bedroom pods are separated by a divided and there is also a handy holding rack to keep magazines, torches, etc.

This is a great tent and one I will use again when on a long weekend break and not taking the campervan.
