Not a great start. The first tent supplied leaked by one of the poles. Outwell and the retailer were unsure of the cause, but given the fact we had another camping break booked were good enough to replace without a quibble. We also broke the pump on the second outing, which was also replaced. They do feel quite flimsy and we have since bought an electric one that runs from the car battery.
Unfortunately one of the beams leaked on the replacement tent. We were lucky that it was a central beam and not an end one, so the tent stayed up for the 5 nights but sagged a little. We have since been provided with a new beam which zips in.
We had a Montana 6P prior to this tent, so do miss some of the nicer touches. The Corvette doesn't have zip up curtains, tinted windows or wheels on the bag. We were also disappointed to note that you still need two people to put the tent up. We wrongly thought you simply pump, but you do need someone inside to lift the beams as they inflate and you will definitely need two people to lift it.
Grumbles aside, it is approx 15 mins quicker to put up than the Montana and is a great design. The canopy is a good size and the zip out doors are fantastic on a warm day. There are storage pockets, access for EHU cable, Velcro for a ceiling light cable and loads of space.
I suspect when we have gained a little more confidence in it after a few more trips we might rate it a little higher. Outwell have never let us down it the past.

I really enjoyed spending time in this very spacious inflatable tent. It was waterproof, light and airy - a proper palace! We enjoyed feeling smug as other campers ooohed and aaaahed over our boudoir. You can jump up and down in it like an idiot and never touch the ceiling!
A word or two of warning about inflatable tents.They're heavy (watch your back!), using the hand-pump is knackering and blowing them up in strong winds is like taming wild horses - woah there!
We're going to sort out an electric pump, so I can crack open the gin and tonic and watch it rise in style next time!
