It's brilliant!

Just got back from a short break in our new Nevada and it was excellent. The fully sewn in groundsheet and midge screens on all the doors were very efficient at keeping out the beasties. We'll be trying it in Scotland next so fingers crossed it will be midge proof!

We didn't bother with the optional carpet (we're camping so are prepared to rough it a bit). We looked at the footprint but (on cost grounds) decided to improvise with a tarpaulin from B & Q. This worked very well at keeping the underside clean.

The headroom and space inside were very useful and appreciated. You get a very nice smug glow being able to sit inside on a miserable, wet evening. However, there is a slight drawback with the height.You need to stretch a bit to tie up the end door.

The pitching WAS easy (2 of us took about 20 minutes), although if it's windy an extra pair of hands would be very useful.

The 'rain safe' side door does work as advertised if the rain is just falling straight down. However, it's not quite as succesfull in typical British rain that tends to come sideways!

There were only 2 of us sleeping inside (very comfortably) and noticed no condensation inside. There are good-sized air vents on both ends and all four corners, which should cope with more bodies.

The provided blue tent pegs are secure but the little hooks for the guy ropes are a bit flimsy. Two were already broken off when we opened up the tent.

The little velcro 'guy-rope tidies' are handy for keeping things neat and tidy. Unfortunately, the velcro is very attracted to the guy-ropes themselves and can be a little bit fiddly.

My wife did make the VERY good observation (as always) that having the blinds on the inside of the mesh doors, would mean not needing to open the mesh to lower the curtains at night. This would also keep the curtains dryer and less likely to catch the wind if using porch poles.

Additionally, a darker material for the sleeping area would be nice for long, light evenings and early sunrises if you're looking to have a long lie-in.

Overall, an excellent tent that we're looking forward to getting lots of use from.

Recently bought our Nevada M at a camping exhibition. Have used it several times now; once for a weekend in Yorkshire and just had a week in Cornwall. All the family love it - plenty of room to put the kids in together and for us. Very easy to put up and take down, with three entrances. Fly sheets to keep the bugs and flies out and we are still finding different bits that can be used for hanging bags, clothes etc. Millie, is now one of the family.

This is a great tent.

Roomy, dry, good head height, plenty of light, lots of doors, lots of storage pockets, .

VERY east to pitch, even virtually single handed.

Carpet and footprint groundsheet are both great too.

Kids room makes it even better for the kids as they feel as if it is their space.

4 of us (2 adults and 2 small children) camped in it for 10 days and had a great time.

Did get a tiny leak in the roof where the central pole is in torrential rain but only a few drops of water.

Zip arrangements are a bit fiddly.

Got a bit painful when it rained for 3 days as didn't want to be in the tent the whole time so bought the front extension (which I was convinced we wouldn't need) and it made an excellent combination. The addition of somewhere under cover but essentially outside was brilliant.

This is our first tent of this style, the previous being a large canvas frame tent with poles that weighed more than the total weight of the Nevada. It is primarily for use by just the two of us so there is ample space for everything. There are a number of points for and against this tent as follows.


Easy to pitch - Takes only 30 minutes from out of the bag to fully erected including guy ropes.

Large separate sleeping compartment.

Large living area with sewn in ground sheet.

Large windows allow views to all except the back of the tent.

Excellent ventilation.


No safe cooking area so have to be really careful when the weather is bad (as it has been!).

Poor door design means having to fully unzip inner mesh to gain access to curtains. No facility to partially open doors and sometimes difficult to attach and detach toggles after doors are rolled up.

A darker material would have been better in the sleeping area - it's far too bright first thing in the morning even when it's raining!

We have used this tent now several times and despite the apalling weather, it has been an enjoyable experience.

We bought the Nevada M last year and love it. So far only the 2 of us have been camping in it, its easy to put up and very roomy. Hubby is 6 ft tall and finds the height brilliant (no bad neck) We unzip the partition and use all the bedroom space, plenty of room for our Queen Anne size airbed / wardrobe etc. The Living area is big enough for table / chairs and cooking area.

This year we have bought the front extension but the only drawback is the colour, our tent is last years blue model and the extension is this years mocca colour (It dosen't come in blue)Also got the footprint groundsheet but not used them yet. Our 1st trip was to Cornwall last year and the tent withstood some very high winds and heavy rain on a cliff top. We had no leaks and creep crawlie visitors. We love our roomy tent

Just back from a weeks camping in Scotland, very pleased with the Nevada M. We were caught in the thunderstorms that flooded some parts of Scotland but not a leak in the tent. Very easy to erect, it takes me and my wife 15 minutes to put up, a very good all round tent with no problems at all.

We bought our tent in 2008 after a lot of diliberating and viewing camping exhibitions & shops. We have been camping for years, so wanted to carefully choose yet another tent and make sure it was not just going to add to our collection in the loft! We wanted one big enough for our family (2 adults & 2 children aged 2 and 4) but didn't take up all the boot space or need a trailer. We have a Volvo estate and don't have a lot of kitchen equipment, but by the time we have packed all the camping stuff & the kids toys, the top box and the car are so full, my husband warns us we can't even break wind or the car will explode!

The Nevada M has been perfect for our requirements. We have bought the Nevada side extension too, which we were warned wasn't really for the Nevada M, but it seems to fit fine & provides a great cooking area & eating shelter for drizzley days.

We have also bought the kids bedroom which is fabulous & our kids get a lot of enjoyment out of it.

We have one of those double height queen sized airbeds which takes up all the triple bedroom. The kids are in ready beds so have ample space in their double room. They'll still have plenty of space when they move up to standard single air beds.

The only problem we have had is with the poles. The elastic snapped in one after the first outing, but the shop repaired it for us. Now we have used it several times, the metal on one pole is bending back. Maybe this is due to the tension that a tunnel-type tent takes?

We experienced the tension with the zips that other people have mentioned, but it was because we had erected the tent incorrectly. You have to unzip the zips to put the tent down, but make sure you erect it with the zips done up or you won't be able to zip them up again.

I also like the layout of the bedrooms. If my littlies wake up in the night I can unzip the adjoining bedroom walls and talk to them without leaving my warm sleeping bag! Something I couldn't do in our old vis-a-vis tent. Also, the SIG makes it less draughty and protects everything from the rain.

Great tent for more than 1 night (we took a simple 5-man dome tent when touring France for 1-night stop overs). We would defo use the Nevada M for a fortnight's holiday, but we have never owned a bigger tent!

The side porch has straps that DO NOT need to be fully tight. Those having issues with the side door being 'tight' zip hard to open/close have erected the tent wrongly!

A fab tent and as we have the front extension shall be using this for a few years. Best features the pockets on the bedrooms, electric cable access zip, front panoramic views. Also like how you can put down half of bedroom area too. We have the footprint, and carpet too all together a fantastic outfit for £240 including the extension. A bargain!

We bought this as a small weekender (our main tent is the Nebraska XL). Initially had some problems finding a combination of airbeds that worked, as the width is based on sleeping mats (@60cm) rather than airbeds. Finally found that two double airbeds, plus a kid’s readybed fitted to sleep 5 – though the pod divider has to be rolled up. One double airbed with three child readybeds will also squeeze in.

The new Mocha colour was off-putting at first, but we found it quite relaxing in practice, and after the initial ‘erk’, the 70’s style bubble carpet was fine as well. We haven’t had a problem so far with the porch zip, and the bedroom door mesh is a tiny bit at the top, so no worries about flashing the neighbours! Panoramic windows around the living area make it seem bigger.

Going from such a large tent to one without a front porch made us think about things we never had before. Where do muddy boots go? Where are we to put on our shoes? The rain door did a good job of keeping water from dripping directly into the tent. We used half a picnic blanket along with the complementary Outwell doormat to create an entrance area and keep our carpet clean. Lack of windows that open was a bit disappointing – it’s the entire door up or nothing. This also meant that ventilation had to be provided at the bottom of each door – they didn’t zip securely around, meaning that the bug mesh had to be fully zipped up all the time. This made getting in and out a little more time-consuming. (In case you’re wondering, a crawling baby will escape through the slightest gap!)

The carbon fibre poles were good at first (second trip out, the elastic cable snapped as we were setting up). Lovely and light for lugging around, and very easy to clip onto. We found we tend to put too much tension on the guy ropes though, and the whole structure would bend out of shape. Finger taut only! We had a bit of a wind when putting up, but didn’t find it too much of a problem. Getting back in the bag was easy.

Living space is pretty decent. We comfortably fit in the Outwell Haiti cupboard, a table, three chairs, with plenty of space left over for a rug rat and, if necessary, two extra chairs for visitors!

Not a tent I’d want for a two week trip (without a utility tent in addition) but just fine for weekends and short jaunts.

We love it, our last tent was a Vango Diablo 800 that always lead to frayed tempers trying to erect it properly.

Our priorities for this tent were:

1. Easy to erect (put your tent name into youtube.Com for an ease of pitching video, bit anorakie but it saved us from buying a Vango Orchy 500 (as well as the reviews on this website of course!))

2. Roomy

3. Budget of around £200

4. Able to stand up in it

We have now used it for 3 weekends away in May this year, on the first weekend we worked on our pitching technique (tunnel tent design is new to us), we can now very quickly pitch it right first time, about 20mins including the footprint. We did find putting some tension on the front pole before the back pole essential. We have not used it in heavy weather yet, Cornwall in August for 10 days may be a good test.

Sure there are a number of things that could be improved such as having dark material around the bedroom but value for money, unbeatable!
