We've got a 7 year old Outwell Colorado 8 tent. It's been a great tent but last week one of the 19mm upright poles snapped whilst we were camping in the New Forest. We made a running repair but now want to replace it. I've trawled the net and also gone to Go-Outdoors in Loughborough. The replacement pole sets from Outwell seem to be for their newer tents and so we can't seem to find the right poles for our tent. Does anyone know where we can source replacements? Thanks Simon and Nicki

Hi and welcome
I assume this is a metal pole, if you cant find a replacement you could have the old one welded with an insert inside to strengthen it.

I may be able to help.

I have the Colorado 5 of around same year and also had all four on one side bend and split in a storm. I got replacements but I still have the original poles. Becasue they split in the same place on the second section down , you could make two complete poles out of the four. They are 19mm and around 95.5cm from base to top where meet plastic section. You are welcome to them if they will fit...not pristine condition I'm afraid but may do. I also still have the tubes the kindly campsite owner used to mend mine so I could continue my holiday! He happened to have some tubing slightly larger diameter to the poles whcih he forced over the break...think the poles were stronger than originally then!

If mine are the wrong size you could get some tubing and make a sleeve to cover the break.

If you're near Loughborough I am only just South of you.
