3 Reviews of the Zempire Mothership

Well what can we say - fabulous!

We had previously only seen this tent on the web and no where near us had one on display and we wasn't happy purchasing a tent we hadn't actually seen and that there wasn't too many reviews of. In February we attended the camping show at the NEC and Zempire had a stand there and we were extremely lucky to meet the owner of the company too. Originally I went to purchase a air tent but after much discussion we decided on the Mothership and boy am I glad we did.

Having a 14 yr old Son and a 9yr old Daughter separate sleeping pods for them was a must and the mothership delivers fantastic sleeping spaces for us all. Only disappointment for me was that I couldn't fit my wardrobe in the pod due to the height issue at the sides but I can solve that by buying new storage! Great storage pockets inside and out the pods and the kids have space to store all their belonging and tat in their own bedrooms without encroaching on the living area!

We also bought the airflow canopy which we feel is a must and that was our kitchen area etc.

Love the fact that the door has a full mesh screen so you get the air in but no buggy friends. The door on the canopy is the same too. Also like that the main door just stuffs in a pocket at the side rather than trying to roll or fold it back.

All the bedrooms have windows you can zip open to reveal a mesh panel to help the air flow - used these this weekend and it helps air a teenage boys pod nicely!

Now to the pitching - how easy literally my hubby and 14 yr old did it on their own! Once your two main cross poles are in and someone inside to help pop it up the majority of the hard work is done. Did take us a while to sort out the tension on the inside and out and we've put it away with the pods still up inside and I imagine they'll need readjusting on pitching the next time.

Not much more to say really, great space, great quality and easy pitching sums it up really!

In August we're off to the South of France so hopefully the airflow system will live up to its name.

I bought one of these tents late last year after a lot of research into types of tent, size, layout etc. We have four daughters aged between 9 - 12 and on holiday, if using campsites in France, we have always rented a static home (3 bedroom's). Vital to keep the peace. So three bedrooms in a tent was on the required list. The Mothership, from the description on the website sounded as if it fitted all our needs.

We bought it from Yeoman's Outdoor Leisure. It arrived in good time and we put it up. So easy to do for such a large tent. It was up in 40 minutes (not bad for the first time) and with the three 'privacy pods', bedrooms to us, put in, the tent lived up to all expectations.

The bedrooms are a really good size, easily fitting two girls in each with a lot of room left over. The Main living area is big and gives plenty of room for eating, games, enjoying each other company. The 'Airflow' system keeps the tent nice a cool and allows a nice flow of air through it.

We have only spent one night in it, in the back garden, but have booked a holiday in the south of France for May half term. I will let you know how the tent lives up to the 'airflow' system and how we got on with it.

So far, great looking tent, great name, lots of room, good quality, great service from Yeoman's.

Totally awesome tent. Lots to say about this and I will submit an in depth review but thought I would post a quick one to let any would-be purchaser that this tent is great and represents a real long term investment. The campsite we just stayed on was battered with wind and rain in Cornwall last week and whilst many tents were either torn apart or bent out of shape we got through it totally unscathed! We were more concerned for the health of our Vango Icarus 500 porch (that fits the mothership nicely) and that came out of the storms well too but the poles look a little 'shaped' as they went back into the bag! As I said many things to say about the Zempire mother ship but am still unpacking from the trip! Back soon !

Manufacturer's Description

Sold as Zempire Mothership in UK, Freedom Camping Mothership in New Zealand.

The Zempire Mothership is our largest dome tent. The three rooms located around a central living area make it also one of our most stable tents. It offers many layout options making it a great tent for a couple wanting a lot of extra room for all the gear or a large family.
The Motherships large central living area is great for storing all your camping gear and cooking for the family.

At Zempire we like to think of better ways to do things. The Privacy Pod system is one of those ideas. Instead of having a fixed layout to your tent we have designed our airflow tents with an open plan shell. Inside this shell you can connect privacy pods which you can take in or out as you please, this maximizes your sleeping area at night and your living area during the day. We also make sure that every room has a private entry/exit so no one is disturbed during the night.
