I am trying to get hold of a footprint and a carpet for this older model Outwell Nevada M tent with no joy.
The Outwell Reddick 5a and the Outwell Nevada SP dont look too far off the mark - what do you think?

A bit of a stock reply to anyone trying to source difficult to find footprints/carpets.

Just use an ordinary builders/general purpose tarpaulin (it's the same material as custom footprints, but MUCH cheaper!) for the footprint, obviously colour is irrelevant as always out of sight. You will need to cut or fold it so that it does not protrude beyond the extremities of the tent ground profile, 100mm(4") SMALLER on ALL sides is ideal, this stops rain wicking underneath and partially defeating object of footprint which is to keep SIG dry. You can easily fit DIY plastic eyelets to corners for pegging down if you wish, and the tarp material tends not to fray when cut so doesn't really need hemming, but can be hemmed on a domestic sewing machine if you want to.

As to carpets, picnic rugs are a common solution, as are universal awning carpets (breathable types are fine, they provide good comfort under foot), both are cheap. They may not fit into every nook and corner, or need excess folding under, but they work pretty well. If you are DIY/handy sort, you can even make them a custom fit every bit as good as the genuine carpet.

For bedroom pods, interlocking foam tiles work well, giving a decent insulation layer for warmth as well as comfort under foot.

Can't comment on the tent models you mentioned, but when I was in your situation, with an Outwell tent too, I found the different models were just sufficiently different to be not a perfect match with my tent.

I used to have an Outwell Oregon then bought the Nevada M. We just used the oregon carpet even though it was 50cm too small. As long as it is close enough in size it will be fine
