I have used my Nebraska xl many time since buying it in 2007 including using it down in Cornwall in may 07. We had the worst weather I've ever camped in and many lesser tents were destroyed but ours withstood the gales. Very spacious, easy to put up and down but takes 2 people and a lot of shoving to get it back in the bag.

In a word, great. Agree with most of the comments previously, except the one by janners hat. Perhaps. As per Sullivan 2007 it was condensation and not leaks (use the vents) that's what they are there for.

There is only myself and my wife and The space is incredible we to use a bedroom as a wardrobe and one for the things you would normally have lying about. That leaves another 2 bedrooms - so now have on suite facilities.

We did do away with the bathtub groundsheet and got an off cut breathable groundsheet from local caravan shop.

We use the porch for cooking and have a picnic table in there as well (there is just so much room).

We went a stage further and also bought a canopy this year, so if the weather is not brilliant you can still have your BBQ without getting wet.

Getting the tent to fit into the bag did present a problem at first but it became easier each time and now it goes away first time.

This is a tent that I would recommend (and we have had a few over the years).

I bought this tent after doing lots of research and watching several different makes and styles being erected whilst on previous camping outings. I chose it as it pitches all in one go and you can stand up in all areas of the tent.

I am a single mum with 3 children (13, 12 and 9) and find it suits our needs perfectly! Its really quick and simple to erect (normally about 45 mins)and has tons of space. Like the other reviewers, we keep all our kitchen equipment and shoes etc in the porch which leaves a huge area for 'living in'.

We camped over May bank holiday this year and had nonstop heavy rain for two days but had no problems whatsoever with leaks.

Yes, the poles are very heavy (no problems with rusting or distorting) and the first time we went to put the tent away caused much hilarity but watch the video on the outwell website which shows you how to erect and take down/pack away the tent; we have no problems now.

I intend buying the canopy this year as the porch area does get very wet if you are constantly opening the front door when camping in the rain.

Overall, if you are looking for a spacious tent that is versatile and easy to erect, you really couldn't go wrong buying this.

First tent we've had. It's a gem. The living space is more than ample for 2 adults and 2 toddlers (on a couple of wet nights we had 6 adults, a table and 6 chairs accommodated very comfortably). We had a couple of minor leaks, but a quick squirt of seem sealant solved that on the next dry day.

Just stayed in it for 2 weeks, and it was very comfortable. All the kitchen gear and a 4 seater table & benches in the porch area, which left the main living space uncluttered, and usable as a proper living room when it really rained.

The bed pods are comfortable, and at 6ft 3' I can stand up without my head touching the top, which is a bonus. We only used 3 pods for sleeping, and the 4th was a big wardrobe.

Plenty of storage pockets dotted about the main living space and in the pods, so most of the smaller clutter can be contained.

A solid tent when erect. Strong winds had fellow campers looking worried, yet we hardly had any movement when others took damage. The weight of the poles and tent does have its advantages.

All this space means that you do need a decent sized pitch to erect on, but a bit of shuffling around means you can get onto most pitches.

Am considering the extra awning for next year to allow a bit more comfort in the wet - but other than that, look no further for a tent. This one will suit most people's needs.

We seem to have gone about things in reverse, Static Caravan, Touring Caravan, and now, a Tent.

Last year we spent a long time looking for the tent we considered right for us, and after considering many, we decided on the Nebraska XL, and what a right decision it was!

We managed to get away last August to South Devon, and our first time of erecting the tent was on our arrival. Once we had placed the footprint, me and my wife were surprised how easily we got the tent pitched, although, I imagine single handed would be a struggle.

Once all the guy's were set, the tent looked like it could withstand anything. There is an amazing amount of room in this tent,4 double bedrooms, a large living area, and a decent sized porch. The tent's design allows for plenty of light, and the skylights in the living area are superb.The tent has a fully sewn in groundsheet, with a 'bathtub' ground sheet in the porch.

For the two of us, this tent is fabulous, as I am sure it would be for a family!

We love our Nebraska!

It has a good amount of space in the middle and in the 'porch' for all our stuff and we love having the pods on the opposite sides of the tent so that we can settle the kids. I'm tall as well so being able to stand up inside is great.

I have pitched and struck the tent on my own but our family is getting quite good at the team work now and it is fairly easy for us to get it up in about 30 mins and down in about 20.

Only difficulty is the weight of the poles. Too much for my wife and children to move; but you know your tent won't blow away!

This is a fantastic tent. It is huge and it is flexible. There are four double bedrooms, all of which are optional so if you want more living space you take some down.

It takes about 30 minutes for two people to erect and once it's up it stays up. It is very sturdy and even when the weather is terrible you feel very secure. We had some days of torrential rain and strong winds yet had no leaks or draughts - Fantastic! I cannot think of a single negative point for this tent. I love it.

Unbelievable that outwell have discontinued this gem of a tent - can't think what we'll have to compromise when ours has given up on us. Huge living space, great headroom. Perfect for us (& occasional friends). Easy enough to pitch with 2 people - although not tried it on very windy day. Packing back into bag is an art form, but achievable at first attempt with one rolling & the other squashing air out!

We bought the Nebraska XL in 2008 and have had many weeks of happy camping without any problems whatsoever.

The tent stood up to horrendous weather in Cornwall when others about where falling down. No problems with leaks or tears as earlier models seemed prone to. We have been so impressed, we've just bought another smaller Outwell for weekend use.

We just love this tent! Huge amount of space, plenty of storage pockets, pitches in around 30-40mins with 2 adults, quite easy to fit back into its bag with practice! The bedrooms are very versatile too. The porch is ideal to use for your kitchen area. All in all a great tent, dont know why they discontinued it.
