Hi there!

My girlfriend and I are looking for a tent that is suitable for a weeks holiday in Cornwall this summer, and for similar holidays afterwards. We ideally require a tent which will allow us to stand up in both the sleeping area and the porch/living area. We don't necessarily need to be able to walk around in the tent, however, we would like enough space to be able to sit comfortbly in camp chairs in the living area and also store certain items of equipment. We have been looking at the Outwell range, particularly the Casagrande L and the Arizona L.

Does anyone own either of these tents or used one of them in the past? Just want to get an idea of overall stability should the weather become rather wet and windy, and in general, how well built are they?

Hi & welcome to the forum mdownes

Both the tents you mention are very waterproof, and you shouldn't have a problem with the stability of either of them.

Outwell is a well known, and well respected manufacturer. They use quality materials.

Lots of people on this forum are in love with the Outwell Montana, so I'm sure someone who owns an Outwell will be along later today to confirm that you've made a good choice

Hi there

We bought an Indiana 8 - we haven't had it up yet, but we keep going back to the display to walk around it... I know....SAD lol.

Seriously, I have a back / mobility problem, and it was the one tent we felt we could move around in easily, and get one of the hi blow up beds in one end, albeit taking up two of the four bedrooms. It seems light and airy, and we cannot wait to try it out for real... roll on August and the Cornwall meet!!

Both are great quality - but I would be tempted to go for the Casagrande L, because if you leave out one of its bedrooms you will have ample space for chairs and table if the weather is poor - the Arizona is a good tent but would not offer the same versatiliy about how you use the interior space.

I personally don't think there is enough living area in the Arizona L, it's a nice tent, but I'd be more tempted with the Aztec Merida on that style, or better still, from what you say you would like, one of the Tunnel tents, which are the same height all the way through.
