June 2012 - In sum: very pleased with this tent. We wanted a large tent for 2 oldies to stand up in, easy to erect. We have just 'stress -tested' it in 2 very wet weeks in France and it stood up really well - just some minor condensation after hours of rain. We could sit, eat and live in it and still have space for bags and beds etc. Excellent.

I've read the review by Davesaat and just want to add that 40mph winds are classed as gale force winds.

If the wind was gusty then it could have been possible that winds were gusting to severe gales (41-47mph) or possibly even storm force (55-63mph) but this is speculation. However if such gust were blowing this would have taken the tent to the extreme of its testing (in ideal conditions) and beyond.

Can I also add the forum has been littered with posts of various tents collapsing in the past couple of weeks due to wind conditions. I just want to add a balanced view

We originally had a 8-man Khyam tent, but when it had to be returned under warranty, our retailer offered us the opportunity to get something else. As it was on sale at the time, we decided to get the Nevada M.

The build quality seemed good, however there are definitely some niggles:

1 - Every time I pitched it, I could not get the bedroom inner to remain separate from the outer flysheet. The flysheet itself seems very long, which causes it to be very flappy in the wind, and touch the inner bedroom pod. I've spoken to owners of Outwell tents at the sites I've stayed at, and this seems to be a common problem with other Outwells if the ground isn't perfectly flat.

2 - Initially, the living area seemed large enough, however when it rained, everything had to come inside (eg table and 3 chairs) and it became cramped, particularly as the corners are cut off by the main entrance to make the living space non-square.

3 - It does not stand up very well to wind. I pegged it out using Deltas where I could on the main guys, but as soon as the wind changed direction (which it does on a regular basis in this country), the tent had no stability whatsoever. Our previous Khyam Quebec 8XC was better in the wind.

This resulted in me needing to abandon my holiday and return the tent when it blew down in 40mph winds (so much for a Force 9 wind rating). The overall build quality was good, so I've not been put off from getting another Outwell, however I wont be getting a Nevada M again as the living space is just too small when in the wind and rain.

Purchased in April for a bargain of £199 ,price match from Go Outdoors. This tent is everything it says on the can. Easy to put up, quality material, quality poles and light and airy to sit in.

Stood up to a very breezy weekend in the Yorkshire Dales this weekend. First date we have been able to try it out because of the weather.

We have purchased the carpet and awning (review on separate thread.

We purchased this tent as a quick to erect weekend tent, and we were not disappointed.

Having watched a video on You Tube of one man putting up this tent in 5 minutes, we gave it a go. No running around for us OAPs though, working together we had the tent erected in 6 minutes - result!

I've even took it camping last December on my motorcycle, (it's a big bike - Pan European). The benefit of not having to crawl in & out of a 2 man tent, made the trip a pleasure, even when the temperature was down to -10!

This was my new Nevada M's first outing. Only the second time it's been pitched. It lived up to my expectations.

I just loved the windows, which gave panoramic views, in turn very bright and airy. I wanted something which gave me lots of space in the living area, which it did. There were only the two of us plus the dog. DS gave approval of the bedrooms which is 3+2. I had a double bed in my larger room; the only draw back, another single bed may just fit,leaving no room for belongings. DS had the smaller room he had his single bed plus the dog. He liked the zipped divider, it gave him proper privacy, but can also be unzipped to make one big bedroom, or just be removed completely. The extra pockets in the living were a great addition. Which my other tent didn't have.

The overhang canopy on the side door was a blessing. No nasty drips down ones neck, thumbs up. I didn't purchase the proper carpet, but loved the one I did buy, made it extra cozy. For a footprint, just used an oversized tarp sheet, fitted great. Tent stayed dry when it rained nothing came through, Which was a luxury not having to worry, as it has a sig. The underside stayed clean with having the tarp protecting it.

I didn't use the pegs which came with the tent; only because the sort of ground the site is on, very rocky and can be hard. Used my rock pegs. No problem. Did like the high visible guylines, cannot miss them.

I was able to pitch the tent on my own first time around. The second time, I was very tired after being in the car for a very long time, and just need a little bit of assistance from DS. Would I be able to pitch the tent in windy conditions, without assistance, I don't know, however it is a very easy straightforward tent to pitch, especially for two people, doable with one. For convenience and the tent is heavy; I have separated the inner bedrooms and poles, When packing a way.

On the whole we all loved the tent, including my OH who came to visit, still plenty of space.

I am looking forward to my next trip in my new purchase.

We have just returned from our first trip in this tent and have been very impressed. We bought at a fantastic price from go outdoors on their price guarantee who matched a deal on Amazon making the tent less than half rrp. We previously owned an Outwell 4 berth pop up and while taking longer to pitch (approx 30 mins including guys) it at least did not provide such a spectacle as collapsing the pop up! The Nevada M appears to be well made and a decent size with plenty of living space and storage for bags without leaving everything in the back of the car as with the pop up. There was little rain or extreme weather, however the tent stood up well to small amounts of rain, hail and wind. We got the carpet and groundsheet to match the tent and this was a welcome luxury in the cold weather. Cleaning the groundsheet at home was much simpler than having to clean the whole underside of the tent and repack it again.

On the whole there are not a lot of differences between the 2011 models and the 2012 I was told its colour trims etc.

I am pleased overall with the tent it’s very easy and quick to erect, it only took us about 15 minutes and this is our first outing with it, not bad for a couple of over 60s, ha ha.

The front space is adequate and the tent material is excellent quality it did get quite windy at one point and it stood up to it well. The quality and design are quite good, however there are some points that need attention before it gets ten out of ten. I speak with 57 years of camping experience and the amount of ventilation in this tent is way over the top and is the source of cold drafts. Even ignoring that the system of door closing is far from good there is no way of keeping the bottom of the doors from gaping open three short pieces of Velcro are not up to the job and no way of fastening them from the inside. This leads to more draft no good on windy cold evenings. There is also no effective way of fully closing the door and sealing it all round thus leaving the bottom of the door to flap in the wind. Some instructions would help there are loops and fasteners that I have no idea what they are for.

Its a shame these points were not ironed out before production as they spoil an otherwise great tent

Firstly we had a Carolina M, which we loved, unfortunately, it had a manufacturing defect, and we took it back. Go Outdoors did not have another one, and refunded us, and we ended up by the Nevada M for £197.50 using their price match promise (making it £2.50 less than we paid for the Carolina.

We have not fallen in love with this tent yet, but we have not used it as much, I am sure we will, but it is a very good tent. Reasonably simple to put up (the first time by in darkness illuminated by Headlights. With a couple more attempts to familiarise ourselves with it, we will be able to set up as quickly as we did with the Carolina M.

Very Spacious tent, which meets are need fully, there is only 2 of us, we use the 3 Berth bedroom, to sleep in, the 2 berth Bedroom as a Walk in Wardrobe / Store Room.

In the Leaving room we have a 4 Seat table, 2 Patio Chairs, and Fridge, which all fits in with out being to cramped.

The windows are good, and let in plenty of light, and whilst I like the idea of the storm porch over one of the doors, it is just to Low - I am 6'3'.

We have used our Carolina M Carpet, Which is a good approximation, without us having to go to the expense of buying a specific one for this tent. The Footprint we made from a B&Q groundsheet, Mainly because No one had one in stock, at a competitive price.

We have also bought the Extension, which as other people have stated, is fiddly to put up, particularly the first time, hopefully next time it will be easier. This makes a significant amount of extra space available, which we have our Kitchen set up in.

The extension, for me, Works as a far better storm gaurd over the door, than the side door, and we will probably never use the side door with the storm porch on it.

The reason I have only given it a 9 is that I have not fallen in love with it.Yet, Its a great tent, but there is something that hasn't grabbed my heart. It may be that the first one was faulty, (it did not have any way of connecting the storm porch to the tent amongst other issues) has made me a little more apprehensive.

I do like it a lot. Later in the season, I will probably upgrade my view to a 10.

I spent quite a while researching tents and originally bought a Vango but the fact that there were hardly any windows made it very dark and I felt very isolated as im a lady camping on her own with 2 dogs.

The day after I returned from my first trip with my Vango I sold it on a well known auction site then proceeded to research similar sized tents which had a lot more windows.

On a trip to my local Water World I found the Nevada M and fell in love straight away, I also bought the footprint but not the carpet because I didnt fancy the dogs bringing in mud! . I took and used old sheets which just go straight in the washer when I get back!

Overall I rate this tent very highly, plenty of space and loads of light, this tent has in total 5 big windows which 3 of them are doors with nets and all 5 have sewn in curtains.

I have plenty of gear, larder/cooker stand, storage units, tables, chairs, loo and a double blow up bed and there is still loads of space.

The nets on the doors are great especially when you have a swarm of wasps and midges to contend with and the side door with the porch over it certainly does its job which means you can still have the door open in the rain and not a drop comes in. If its raining don't use the other doors because when you unzip them water runs in from both the door and the roof . Hence the porch!

I had 4 trips away from June to Aug Bank holiday of between 2-3 weeks at a time and when you look at how many seams the tent has I havnt had 1 leak, to me that says a quality product. I did have some quite heavy rain and wind for a couple of days. The site faces the sea so it really gets the full force of the weather and as I prefer to pitch for the super view I did get the worst of the weather and the tent hardly moved an inch!

My tent also has the plastic pegs and because id read the comments on here id started looking for new pegs before id even tried the plastic ones but id not got round to purchasing any before my first break but to be honest im really pleased with them so wont be spending more money on something I don't think I really need. They went in and came out really well but I hammer in a metal peg first to make my required hole then put in the plastic peg which goes straight in with no problems, I did buy a really heavy mallet though. Having said that I did find when it came to packing up there were a few which werent quite as straight as they could have been but non resembled anything like a corkscrew as one reviewer experienced.

As im a bit of a 'clean freak' I decided because I wasnt rushing home I would wash my pegs before I left so I boiled the kettle and soaked them in really hot soapy water which I found made them quite pliable meaning I could bend and straighten them out quite easily, so to be honest I am very happy with both the tent and the pegs.

It is quite a heavy tent as someone else said previously so I tend to split the tent up because everything has its own bag. Tent, pegs and poles and the heaviest bag seems to be the poles by far so be warned! Splitting it this way meant I could handle it a lot better plus packing the car was easier too.

I agree about it would be more convenient if there were clips or something equally as good for the centre light cable but I took some of plastic cable ties which tighten and used them where possible.

Definately a tent to more than consider but shop around on line as prices do vary and some retailers do offer a price match providing you can prove it can be purchased elsewhere at that time at a cheaper price, every £ helps when your starting out in camping, im still finding things id like and I really thought id got everything I needed!

Happy camping and just ENJOY THE RELAXATION a camping holiday gives you!

Manufacturer's Description

This compact tunnel tent sleeps up to five in two bedrooms. Huge windows, backed by toggle-up curtains, ensure plenty of light enters the tent and great views out. This is enhanced by the panorama front that also provides even more space. The looks are further lifted by the use of the new Treetop Green colourway of our own Outtex 4000® tent fabric. The Nevada can be pitched either outer tent first or all in one. This is further simplified by the addition of the Outwell Easy Pegging System. The unique Outwell Wind Stabilizer System provides even more stability in up to Force 9 gales. A Rain-safe door keeps out water when access is required in bad weather. The tent is packed with Outwell DNA features like pre-attached luminous guylines. The inners have the new chic logo-embossed fronts and Night Sky Ceiling to aid sleep.
