Once removed from the packaging the first thing that struck us were the colours. Although many pictures have been published
on the internet, the colours are not as strong as on the pictures. The carpet itself is heavy gauged PVC backed, with a soft fleece top. It is very soft to touch and we would imagine quite warming to the foot when on the floor of your tent. The carpet is made to measure the tent that it’s purchased for and sits nicely in the living area. It lays down loosely in the living area not needing securing. The carpet has some in panels on it where the roll has been joined in production.
We have been told keeping the carpet clean is easy, just hang it over your washing line and rinse with the hosepipe. We thought the price we paid of just under £50 was very reasonable for a wall to wall soft carpet.
Our first trip with the new carpet is over the Easter period and I hope to
be reporting back on how well the carpet performed with two adults and one
dog in part two of this report.
To be continued....................
||................. We have just returned from a six day break,
the first with the new Outwell Carpet. As mentioned above the carpet just
lays in the living area of the tent - a Montana 6 in this case. The rear of the carpet
has a cut out to accommodate the centre fixing of the bedroom pods. During the
Easter break the evenings were quite cold and damp, The carpet with the addition
of the new footprint did cut down dramatically the dampness in the tent and on
We found it very comfortable to walk on during the day and would be a
very suitable addition to those camping that have a young family. Only towards the end of our time over the Easter period did we find the carpet
start to raise in places. It should be noted no family here, just two adults and a dog, so with kids, and more coming and going, it may be different.
are easily taken care of. Whilst away a cup of water was knocked onto the
carpet. The liquid had not soaked in by the time we had got to it and was easily soaked up by kitchen towel.
Our overall experience of the carpet is very good. We found that not only did
the carpet provide a soft underfoot, but also helped to reduce the cold and
dampness on cold evenings. We would have no doubts in recommending the carpet if
space allows and especially for those with young families.
