First time camping, first tent, even in heavy rain, and no sealed seams it kept us dry. Suits us a family of 4. Nice and roomy, lots of space for the kids to play when the weather was bad. Looking forward to buying the extension when it comes out. All in all really like this tent, but then it is our first.

We love this tent. Having sold our caravan last year we wanted a tent that would still give us plenty of room. I went to go outdoors to look at all the tents and this one screamed out at me as being the best value for the size.We tested it for 5 days at Harrogate and loved it. It went up really easily. The sewn in groundsheet was great. The bedroom pods had plenty of room for the 3 adults that went and there was a decent sized living space for us all with plenty of windows. I thought the little zip at each side to admit an electric hook up cable was a great idea. Now I just want the carpet and porch and I'll be happy

After buying and trying a few (4 actually) tents last year, this has got to be the best I have had. I needed a tent that would fit myself and 3 kids, but that could be pitched by just myself, whilst keeping an eye on the kids. After a quick trip to Swindon GO, I came back with this.

I took it away for about 7 short breaks last year, it took about 20 mins to pitch by myself, has to be the easiest tent I've ever done, and stood up to lashing rain, thunder and a lot of wind in an exposed fields in Cornwall and Wiltshire ! it also coped with 3 lively children being kept inside during a storm ! and the best part was there were no leaks.

I bought the carpet to go with it, a bit of luxury, but it does make it a great and very warm family tent.

Bought this tent last summer in the GoOutdoors sale ready for our last big camp of the year. LOVE IT! simple as that. We go away with a child and 2 dogs so the tent design is perfect. The sewn in groundsheet and secure fastening of the front opening meant the dogs were well contained throughout the night which is paramount as we no longer have to take a dog cage for them to sleep in. Also the bedroom designs mean our son gets a single mattress plus room for all his junk in the smaller bedroom pod and we get double mattress plus standing room in the larger bedroom pod. The tent is easy to erect - even on my own it was possible. It is well built and withstood some harsh weather last year when we took it out. Not one dripping seam or zip! I would love to get the fitted carpet this year and will be looking into the porch for it. Our tent didn't come with the windows which seeing the windowed version is a bit gutting hence the drop in a point for my rating. Considering we only paid 115 quid for the tent it is a fantastic purchase for me - well worth it!

Well that was me just getting my tent out the bag for the 1st time yesterday to check all was well before we go away with it next week. Got as far as opening it out and noticed it was filthy and wet/damp. Put it straight back in the bag and tore down to GO asking for a 'new' 1 and not 1 that had been used and returned filthy. (Tut tut GOOUTDOORS)

Got back home and proceeded to erect the new 1 only to be disappointed again as there was a toggle fastener missing to secure the front door curtain but not taking it back, should hold with Velcro. Would probably have been ok if the curtain rolled from top to bottom instead of bottom to top (strange set up) A bit footery to zip closed from the inside but looking forward to trying it out next weekend.

We bought our Mojave 5 (2011) from Go Outdoors 129 to replace our Carplan 5. The main reason for this the extra space it provides, along with the introduction of numerous windows. We have used it several times since March in all weathers. It seems to us that Hi Gear have addressed all the issues with earlier models. It has stood-up to all weathers that Scotland can throw at it. No leaks at all. Packing it away in the wind is fun, but is that not the same with all tents. We have nicknamed our tent Amityville, because of the way it looks at night with the lights on inside, but as far as we are concerned there is no horror with this tent. Just happy camping.

Just bought mojave5 in early march 129.99, special offer at go outdoors. This replaces Vango Icarus 500 which has nearly every pole split. The Mojave5 was easy to erect single handed, about 15 mins. Good size and pleased to find addition of 7 windows from side doors and across all of front, great addition. Only niggle, seemed draughty as was - 2 outside at night and difficult to zip up doors from inside. Will review further as will be used every weekend at Brands Hatch from March till November. so far seems excellent value for money

Hiya, I was in my local Go store last week after receiving the latest email from them regarding the sale of the Mojave 5. From the 7th to the 13th March this model comes down from 199 to 129. I've known for a while it was going to drop in price so decided to hold off till the 7th.

Good news was I seen it had the full sewn in groundsheet (no more need for the velcro carry on) but the best news is that it has 7 windows in the living area and a far better front entrance! Woohoo! I've always said I'd opt for this tent if it had windows.

I went and asked the assistant if this was the model that was getting reduced but he said that they'd probably be the old stock with no windows and velcro needing model :(

I was just wondering if anyone has seen this new version and do you rate it if you've purchased one?

Roll on Monday.

Update: I went back today to see if they would sell me 1 early in case it's the old version they put on sale. No joy, I was told it wouldn't come up 129 on the system until tomorrow.

The new model's front entrance in almost just all window and the windows on the side walls are a good size too :)

We have had this tent for a year now and love it. Easy to put up and pack away and has stood up to some very bad wind and rain. We have added some velcro along the bottom of the door on the front to stop any drafts. We too were looking for a canopy to cook in so I emailed Go Outdoors last August and was sent this response:

I can confirm that there are plans to make a porch/canopy for the Hi Gear Mojave

5. Please be aware it is not likely to be released for sale until the start of

Next year's camping season - around April.

We will be looking out for it in April!

Very simple to erect, especially compared to some of the god awful tents (particularly the halfords thing we had just) before this.

Seems well made, we've been all over with this thing, zips still haven't broken off, its all still in one piece (apart from some vandalism done on the door when we had the misfortune to visit Orchard Farm in Humanby) though obviously thats not a fault with the tent, luckily it also comes with a repair kit.

It also comes with all the poles/pegs, beware of some of the cheaper tents which don't include these, even though you'd assume they do.

Highly recommended tent, even in treacherous weather conditions you feel safe.

First place to check for one of these would be Go Outdoors, they seem to do special deals on these quite often.

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.
