A fantastic tent! We realised however, that when it rains (unusual on a camping trip!) that rain water runs down the front door and therefore into the tent when you open the door! We therefore got the Montana 6 front extension to go on the front, and this stops it nicely. It also forms a sun canopy on those hot sunny days! We are really happy with the tent, we have 2 adults & 3 children, all on airbeds, and there is enough room in the bedrooms. We don't use the wardrobe, although the hanging rail can be useful for hanging towels etc on.Really pleased with it, have camped in all weathers, and have no problem recommending it, but also suggest the Montana extension!

I am a first time camper so can not quote on other tents, but I bought the vermont l for space as there is a hand full of grandchildren we have in tow. Our first holiday in September 08 was not the best of weather but we did have I would say 4 out of 7 good days. But the second day in to our holiday the rain and wind was horrendous my wife and myself being first time campers were a little nervous to say the least. But I can honestly say our tent was fab no leaks and stood up to what we thought was a tornado. Only had a little trouble with the bath tub ground sheet in the porch as we weren't sure which way to clip it on. Kids loved it and so did we, if I sort out the bath tub ground sheet in porch then I would give this tent 10 out of 10

Unfortunately we got a 2007 tent that was one of the 'bad batch' ones! We had a week in Woolacombe at the end of August 07 and (because it didn't rain) it was fantastic. We then took it to France for 2 weeks in August 08 - it was a great 'nice weather' tent - but as soon as the rain began! It poured in through the window seams, through the top of the tent - we had huge puddles under the sleeping area as well as it raining through into the sleeping area and soaking everything. OK it did rain very hard - but the Gelert Satellite 6 we had just got rid of had handled this type of weather for 6 years without a problem! I was gutted because I had insisted we get rid of the Gelert and buy the Outwell Vermont L! When the sun came out and dried up all the rain - and we got everything dried that was inside the tent - it was a fantastic tent and lived up to all the positive reviews of the people who didn't have a 07 non-waterproofed one! The only negatives (apart from the obvious) was that I was mystified as to how you were supposed to put the front up and create a sun canopy! We tried it but it just looked silly - so if anyone knows if there is a canopy that fits onto the front of this tent to create a sun canopy I would appreciate it - this would also help when it is raining and you are trying to get into the tent - all the water just runs onto the groundsheet by the time everyone has got through the door! We didn't want to use the side doors because we had the carpet and didn't want that to get wet and dirty. It is easy to put up and to take down and for once we have a tent that fits back into its carry bag very easily. Luckily we got the tent from Outdoor World in Warrington and as soon as I phoned them with the problem they took the tent back, reviewed my comments and photos and immediately replaced it with an 08 version - which judging by the comments on this page - it should be fine - Outdoor World has also promised to guarantee this tent for our holiday next year too - so it does pay to buy from reputable dealers. Fantastic tent though - can't wait to use the new 08 version next year in France! (Note to self: try the tent out first!)

We bought this in 2007 as we upsized from another Outwell. Loved the fact that everything was enclosed and for us clearly defined i.E. Sleeping area, the enclosed living area for evenings and bad weather days and the 'kitchen/diner' area with its bathtub groundsheet. Whilst in Devon in 2007 it leaked - however I put this down to a combination of heavy rain and strong winds. We had even worse weather (heavy & persistent rain)this year in Cornwall and it never leaked once - so I presume maybe I had erected it too rigidly which caused strain on the seams. We love this tent with its size and very practical layout for a family of five. Have the carpet which adds to the comfort. Only downsize to this tent is that at times it can be a bugger to erect and takes us both and our eldest daughter all our strength. We still have not mastered the perfect way after numerous trips - although the suggestion by one contributor to this site to leave vents open will be tried on our next expedition. We do get the occasional sharp intake of breath from camp site wardens when questioned about the size - but we now bite back by saying its still smaller than most caravans and their awnings. Although Outwell have to be commended for their quality & design their customer/after sales service leaves a lot to be desired. I needed a replacement bathtub groundsheet and had to contact a least three retailers who had to contact their reps to obtain a replacement. Finally after three months I managed to get one! If I had to buy another tent - I buy the same again - although from the retailer who managed to get through to Outwell!

I was very excited about this tent, having three young children the space and the layout fab. Until it rained and had to come home early. The tent leaked not just at the seams but all over leaving us very wet. I like the tent and hopefully it will get sorted.

Having just returned from a VERY wet and windy 2 weeks in Cornwall, I decided to write a review of this brilliant tent.

This was our 3rd family holiday in it, and it really stood up to everything that Cornwall threw at us!

We upgraded in April last year from a Khyam Rigidome XXL because we wanted more space for our family and I wanted to be able to stand properly upright!

It is spacious and has brilliant storage. We cooked and ate in the front section and used the 'living space' for everything else.It is really cosy, especially with the addition of a tent carpet (bought and used for the first time this holiday).

Some of the reviews have been less than favourable about it's ability to stand up to rain, but I can honestly say that it couldn't have performed better.

We have been camping as a family for years and have never encountered such consistently heavy rain and strong winds, and the Vermont L handled it all. It was only beaten by a mouse nibbling through both the footprint groundsheet and the integral groundsheet. Obviously it had had enough of the cornish weather!

We have dried it out and repaired the nibble holes and are already planning our next camping adventure.

To sum up, if you are looking for a spacious family tent with great storage, which is straightforward to put up and take down and which will cope with the extremes of weather we get here, then I can't recommend this tent highly enough.

Our first tent - we have just returned from a family camping holiday in Dorset with our two young children aged 4 and 6. We had mixed weather including heavy rain strong winds and yes !some sun! The tent was fantastic, sturdy, dry, warm and cosy and with the extra space you get with the vermont l it was ideal for all being able to sit at the table at meal times in the front of the tent and in the evenings be in able to sit as a family and play/draw or read in the main living area. It was lovely and made even more cosy by having the vermont carpet!

We found the vermont easy to put up and just as easy to take down, having the built in wardrobe was a great way of storing and covering up our clutter.

Due to the fact that the tent performed so well during the wind and rain made our first camping holiday more enjoyable, so much so that we have booked a long weekend in September.

Further to my last review I've just received a replacement 2008 tent today from Oase Outdoors (Denmark). I was instructed to retain the poles and pegs but everything else has been replaced. I've not heard of any leaking problems with the 2008 model so hopefully I can get back into camping in our wonderful aquatic climate. I'll update if I encounter any problems. Although I maintain Outwell are difficult to contact direct I can't fault their excellent customer service. Anyone wishing to contact them would be advised to visit their website - link below

We decided to replace our excellent Vango Diablo 600 with a tunnel tent and Outwell were recommended to us by friends who have a Montana.

Layout is fantastic, lots of living space and very bright and airy. We use the front porch area for cooking, being able to open the whole front up in hot weather was great. Lots of mesh doors make it easy to air the tent whilst keeping the bugs out.

We got a 2007 model originally which leaked very badly when used in May, this was replaced without quibble by Yeomans and the new model coped fantastically with everything Wales could throw at it last week - this included very hot weather followed by very heavy prolonged rain and wind gusting up to 30mph.

Tent is very easy to erect and packs away easily too. The only thing we would add is a canopy to keep the rain out of the porch.

We bought a Vermont L in 2007 and loved it. It is a very big tent - loads of space for my husband and I, our two year old daughter and a small dog. It is not quick to erect; the steel poles and sheer size of it make it fairly heavy, but once up it is extremely sturdy and we only ever had a few drops of water inside, despite the heavy rain last summer!

It is great to have a separate area at the front for cooking and storing muddy boots etc. And the spacious living area was great in the evenings, with the sewn in ground sheet making it very warm and cosy. The living area also has a big wardrobe so all our clothes and bags were kept out of the way. There was also ample room for our portable toilet in the living area without compromising on space.

One downside we found was that the sleeping areas are very light. Our two year old daughter wasn't keen to go to bed as she kept saying it as still daytime! Also I woke at 4am every morning when the sun came up!

Another problem we found was the size of the tent meant that many of the Camping and Caravan Club sites refused to accept us, saying that the tent was too large for their pitch size during high season. For this reason we have now sold the tent and will be downsizing thi summer. Overall though a great tent.
