Just spent two weeks away in Yorkshire the tent was amazing. I agree with comments about a window but my husband had a brain wave and he does not have many, he only used two sections of the porch poles and placed them at an angle in front of the side door. This enabled us to have light and air plus a little window, even though we had rain it never came in it was one of his better ideas. All in all one off the better tents we have ever had and we have had a few.

Started camping last year and really enjoyed it. This year with a growing family of 6 decided to purchase a bigger tent. We did some research and decided on a Sahara 6. When we went to purchase this tent my partner and I thought the Mojave 5 was better for us as some reviews did say the Sahara 6 can be tricky to erect and was very big. The Mojave weighed lighter with lots of space in living area for the 6 of us with tables and chairs. The 2 bedrooms a 3man and 2 man was ample enough. The sig was a plus point as well. It was a good price of only a 100.00 that made our minds up so we bought it.

We have been camping twice or ready and have not had the tent 2 weeks yet very pleased, it erected easily fits in the bag great and kept us bone dry with all the rain over Whitsun which was a lot of rain. The only downside was it would be nice to have a window and let some light in especially when the weather is bad.

Overall would recommend this tent excellent value.

Love this tent. Bought it from the new GoOutdoors in Southampton for 100. I came home from work and my wife who is a complete novice had been able to put it up on her own, rather windy and with our 2 boys under her feet too!

Spent 2 nights in it so far, lots of room. Zips got caught quite a bit but seem to be made well enough not to damage the tent. Fitted back in to the bag easily. A window would have been nice and it is very blue, however the tent stayed darker in the morning and the kids slept longer. We didn't notice a draught from the large front door but weather was reasonable for us, cant wait to take it away again soon. Tent heavy, not much of a factor for us but maybe a concern if you need to throw it into a roof box. Really good tent, very good price

First things first, yes quick and easy to put up/take down and this is the first tent that has actually gone back into its back with ease and room to spare! bonus!

Just camped for 1 night on the cliff tops at Flamborough, the weather was very unkind and we have had hail / rain / gale force wind (tree blown down in village) and this little fantastic tent stood its ground, yes it wobbled but it stayed put. There was another one of these tents in the field and this was not anchored properly with the guyropes and that did blow away, but that could have been any tent.

Only negative, I felt like an extra at Avatar it is a little blue inside when all closed up and perhaps 1 window would have been nice.

Last word, loving this tent.

Just purchased the tent this week, we have yet to go away in it, however, we put it up in the garden on Saturday and only took it down today. The tent has withstood hailstones, heavy sharp showers and wind. The tent was dry no water ingress at all. I cannot wait to have our first trip in it. We previously owned a 2009 Vango Colorado 800 DLX, whilst this was a good tent it was too big and took a great deal of time to put up.

The Mojave only took 15 mins to put up and around the same time to take down: what a joy we are totally delighted. When we have our first trip away I will update

Quick update from previous review. We went camping with our Mojave 5 for the first time in the New Forest over the early May bank holiday. We had some pretty heavy rain on the Saturday night, and not a drop penetrated the flysheet. No condensation problems either. Plenty of space in the bedrooms and easy to pitch and take down. My only criticism would be that there doesn't appear to be a purpose-designed canopy / porch for this tent (would have been useful to have one in the rain). Might have to try one of the Hi Gear ones designed for other tents.

Bought a Mojave 5 a few weeks ago - first tent we've owned as a family. No real camping experience with it (first time will be end of April) but pitched it in the garden as a practice this afternoon, and was very pleased with it. It's very straightforward to pitch with the sewn-in groundsheet. It even packs away pretty easily (once we remembered to put the bedrooms back in with it!). Very pleased with our purchase and can't wait to try it out properly.

Our friends invited us to join them on a 5 day camping holiday near Barmouth. Having never camped before we had no equipment and a very limited budget, I set about frantically scouring the internet for deals on tents. After several weeks of reading reviews and a visit to Go Outdoors, we decided to go with the Mojave 5.

We went on our first camping trip in our Mojave 5 in August 2009, our friends using their Coleman tent. It was very easy to put up and took around 30 minutes, which I thought was pretty quick considering we had never been camping before.

The tent performed very well over the 5 days. We had a little heavy rain on the second night and with me waking to the sound of dripping, panic set in. After several minutes searching the tent with a torch for a leak and not finding one or any sign of water in the tent, I realised it must have been dripping off the rear air vent onto the tent, Panic Over.

The inside is very spacious and the bedrooms are a good size (a roomy double and single). The living area is a good size and easily fit 4 adults and 2 teenagers inside with doors zipped up during the cooler evenings.

Sewn In Groundsheet was good, although the large gaping gap along the bottom of the front entrance caused quite a draft, hence the 9/10 rating. We never used this entrance during our holiday and it was pegged to prevent as much draft as possible. We will definitely be trying the sticky velcro method next time.

This was a great starter tent for us and when our daughter decides it's no longer fashionable to be seen with Mom & Dad, we can detach a bedroom and give us even more living space inside.

Tent came down just as easily as it went up and packed away into it's carry bag first time.

Our friends in their Coleman did not have such an easy ride though, having one of the guy rope points rip out of the tent and the zip failing on their second door. They were so impressed by the quality of our Mojave 5 they purchased one on their return home.

All in all a good buy.

We used the Mojave for the first time in September at the Chertsey site, and we thought it is a great tent. There is only the two of us but the stuff the oh takes we need all the space. The only thing I will change is to put some sticky back velcro along the bottom of the main front door. Apart from that an excellent tent,and we've had a few over the years.

I bought this tent for when I camp without OH as I cant quite pitch the Oregon 8 on my own. And what can I say! absolutely fantastic and cheap (150).

Very easy to pitch on my own with help from my 7 year old carrying pegs lol! (im 5ft 6 female).

We were in very heavy wind and rain all week and this tent stood up to all it was subjected too. No leaks!

Would definitely recommend.

Manufacturer's Description

Easy to erect, easy to dismantle, and offering generous living space, the Mojave 5 is a great choice for families wanting comfortable, fuss-free camping, or couples wanting extra space for storage and fun.

It pitches outer first, with separate 3 and 2 person rooms that clip in to the underside.

With taped seams, a sewn-in groundsheet and completely waterproof outer layer (3000HH), you can be sure of total protection from rain and draughts.

The poles are angled to give you maximum headroom throughout the tent, so no need to stoop when you're inside. The pole sleeves have slick inners to make pitching the tent quick and easy.

In warmer weather, the breathable inner and 2 side doors with full mesh panels give you superb ventilation and allow plenty of light into the tent. The large front door can be extended out as a canopy, using the steel porch poles, offering shelter from sunshine or rain.

It has bright and reflective pre-attached guylines to keep it stable and secure, and more visible in the dark. There's also a electrical cable access point allowing you to use appliances inside the tent with the minimum of fuss.

A practical and versatile option for families, group campers or anyone who needs comfort and breathing room when out in the wild.
