I got the Mojave 5 tent and I think this tent is brilliant , I also bought the porch , and its made the tent even better even more room , we leave all our tables and kitchen stuff in the porch and its superb the amount of extra room is great. I did wait for a 50% sale on all hi gear stuff at go outdoors and got the porch for £60 so its great value for money. I could do with a little bit of advise if possible , on putting the tent up on the easiest way, I put all my poles in - is it better to start from the front or the back to erect it , do I start to put pegs in while I put each pole up ???? Me and our lass did it a few times and we never get it exactly right , our poles are sometimes not parallel or we make it too tight for bed rooms to go in. We are doing something wrong but not sure what, any tips? Would be really grateful to get the tent perfectly up, and to put the porch on perfectly too, many thanks!

We recently bought the Mojave 5 as a larger more comfortable tent for a car camping trip to France. During which we experienced heavy rain, wind and sunshine. I am pleased to say the the tent stood up to all conditions well, is easy to put up and take down (can be done on your own) and provided lots of space, particularly when used with the porch.

A good value tent, I would recommend it to anyone.

After much debate I bought the Mojave 5 recently for a family beavers camp (2 adults and 3 children), the camp was this weekend and when we arrived Friday it was very windy but between me and my hubby we battled the wind and had the tent up in no time at all, we had the footprint and carpet also, Friday night was very windy but tent held well, Saturday night early Sunday morning the weather was horrendous mainly very bad rain but the tent sprung no leaks, the only water issue we had was when we opened the door to go in and out but we will be buying the porch for our next camping trip which will solve that. We didnt really spend a lot of time in the tent as lots of activities going on but perfect space for us. The tent was easy to take down at the end of our weekend. Can't wait until our next camping holiday.

We bought this tent as a Ďsmallerí family tent for long weekends away Ė small is relative here as there are 5 of us, 2 adults and 3 kids; and the wife is not one for lightweight camping. It got its first outing over the Easter holidays at a very wet n windy site in mid Wales.

We chose this over other 5 man tents as it gave excellent living space, good headroom and decent sized bedrooms compared to other tents in this price range (it was bought at a heavily discounted sale price); and we were not disappointed at all. The weather was very wet with rain most days, much of it very heavy and the tent stood it all well. No leaks, no damage in winds, no feeling it was going to blow away or get damaged. My only complaint is that on one of the side doors the Velcro strips donít quite line up completely, only overlapping by about 1cm, so not as secure as it could be; so took a bit of care when securing to avoid the door end tucking itself inside the tent and letting all that rain water in. It was not enough of a problem to warrant taking the tent back, but I may add a bit more Velcro to make it as secure as the other side.

It is simple to erect and Iíve put it up solo in about 20mins on two occasions now. Its sturdy and quite well ventilated, though a bit more ventilation would certainly be useful. We were not cramped even when all confined to the living area. Tables, chairs, kit, clothes, toys etc were all accommodated without feeling cramped. In good weather it would be perfect as much of this stuff could live outside. The numerous large doors and windows make the living area very bright and the tent has excellent headroom throughout. The separate removable bedrooms are just about large enough for 2 and 3 bodies respectively if using airbeds, but the main area needs to be used for clothes storage if at full capacity. It has a v good HH, usual features like cable entry points, lantern hangings, fluorescent guys, door poles, SIG, pockets are all present. And of course separate footprints and carpets are available and certainly worth the money.

All in all very satisfied with the tent and would happily recommend to others. It would be too small for us for a long 2 week camp (unless I can get the wife to realise we donít need all that stuff! Or the weather is continuously kind, even less likely) but it would certainly suit 2/3 as a base for a long camp or a larger family as a weekend tent that offers plenty of space for those inclement days.

As an aside, we were tempted by the porch to give more space for cooking, but decided not to buy this as it is the same price as we paid for the tent itself. However the porch to our Kalahari 10 just about fits if coming off one of the side entrances. Its not a perfect fit but does give more space and another large sheltered area. Iím guessing other large porches could be used in a similar fashion.

We bought this tent from go outdoors in the sale, the first thing that stands out is the value for money is excellent!

There is plenty of room inside the tent, it comfortably sleeps 5 people and the living space is just about big enough to hold 5 if needs be ie if its pouring down!

The front Windows provide great light and visibility and are nicely closed out with the built in flaps, access is good with the 3 huge doors, the little ecu access points are handy, we've used this tent half a dozen times now and I really am struggling to find a bad thing to say about it!

Putting it up and down is a doddle, easy with 2 people but could be done alone, all in all really happy with our buy!

Just back from cliff top site in Filey, tent performed really well, no leaks even with heavy rain, hailstones and strong winds. Can't wait to use it again. There was enough room for 4 of us and our gear. Good tent for the price I paid. Will be buying the carpet to match now I know it can handle bad weather.

We have used our Mojave now 4 times and it has withstood rain, wind and heat. There are only 3 of us and we have plenty of room - I think it would be a bit of a squeeze for 5 people.

We bought the porch last year and would recommend it to anybody. The space is great for storage and cooking and the fact that the porch has a zip front keeps the cold out and your things dry. We think this is a great tent and would recommend it, especially with the porch.

We bought this tent on a 'spur of the moment' in August 2010.

Cant remember how much it was, but it seemed a bargain at the time.

The tent itself seems well made, and suits us perfectly. As we are old hands with it now, we can have the tent up in 20 Mins.

We take a little longer because we bought the Porch for it last year which is fabulous.

Never had any leaking issues like other owners.

We wouldn't like to sleep 5 adults in the tent as we feel it would be too small and claustrophobic but we have camped with a couple of grand children and its perfect.

Would we buy another?

Would if the 'big' pod was slightly bigger. Supposed to sleep 3 in there but would be too much of a squeeze.

It does suit us and we'll definitely keep it for another couple of seasons.

A Good tent

Easy to put up and down - took 2 people about 30 mins for the 1st time. Took less after that. Slight leak at top of zip on side doors, but everywhere else fine. Withstood very heavy rain and wind. Although its a 5, the living area was crowded with 3 people and everything else, so we bought the porch, which has now become the kitchen so problem solved. Bedrooms roomy and so much better when you can stand up in them, but would be crowded with 5 beds. All in all a lovely tent, which was a bargain at £130, which has stood up to everything that was flung at it.

We brought one thinking we were getting a great deal at around £150 - How wrong could we be. A very long story short. We brought this as a smaller tent to use for our shorter camping breaks instead of our larger one.

In wind it is like a tethered kite. On its 3rd outing in its first rain, to say it leaked would be a lie. It might as well have not had a roof. Everything inside was soaked and we had to leave our holiday as a result.

After spending £45 on sealant for our tent that had now done only 6 days from new and been wet once we left it out in the rain to test it. Again it served brilliantly as a colander.

By the time we had done all of this it was a couple of days past 1 year old. Go Outdoor to their credit (after a week of negotiation and help from 'the sales of goods act') agreed to provide me with a full refund.

10 out of 10 for Go Outdoor but 0 out of 10 for their Mojave 5 (unless your using it in the kitchen)

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.
