Mojave 5 is worth every penny. Warm Dry and easy to erect. I use a power inverter with a cable running from my car, I was amazed to find a small opening in the Mojave 5 that allows a cable into the tent.

Its strong and very well built.

Comes in a strong bag.

Would recommend it to anyone.

I found the carpet was a little pricey

We bought a Mojave 5 last August for 100 whilst it was on special offer at Go Outdoors in Coatbridge near Glasgow.

Previously to this as an introduction to camping we had purchased a cheap four man tent which did not have a sewn in groundsheet and took ages to put up.

We went away for a weekend in August 2010. The Mojave 5 took us about 20 mins to put up which for us was a miracle.

It was heaven compared to our previous tent. The space inside the tent was magnificent, we could stand up inside the tent and it felt very spacious and the sewn in groundsheet was great.

We purchased the carpet for the tent also which made it feel very homely indeed.

The tent could have done with a window as it was looking and feeling very blue.

We have already booked our camping holidays for 2011 and with several weekends also planned we can't wait to get away with our Mojave 5 again.

I've just been on to go outdoors and they have told me there will be a canopy for the Mojave 5 out next April (2011). About time. They said it will be a front canopy but it should fit on the side as well. They're not sure of the price yet. Hope this info is of help as I have been trying to get one for a long time now.

We used our Mojave in August in South Cornwall, we were battered by gale force winds and heavy rain for three days. But the inside of the tent remained dry and the tent stood up to the high winds. We were very satisfied. I would like a porch for next year though so that we have somewhere dry to cook.

We decided to buy The Mojave 5 tent after a walk around a Go outdoors shop.

Myself, hubby (both in our 30's) and little boy then aged 2 decided to try are hand at camping. (myself and hubby use to do camping some 10+ years before & for many years & enjoyed it, but also knew the pit falls.)

. Our aim this time was to find a tent that was a good height for my hubby (he is 6ft 5') and had a good size separate sleeping areas and a good sized living area in case of bad weather (Well, it is England!) and finally something that wouldn't take an hour to put up or down . Did we find it .

ABSOLUTELY . We LOVE this tent, considering the cost of other tents-this was 100 in the sale and in our opinion is brilliant, having the 3 doors is great as you can always find a door thats out of the wind! the huge door at front is fantastic - we erect 3 wind breaks from this door and have a little garden for our boy to run in (Without him running off into other peoples tent-you laugh it has happened!) and also means out of one of the side doors we erect a little kitchen and have the flyscreen zipped-great as keeps the little one safe and away from the cooking area.

As for the Big Door and I have noticed a few mentioning it not closing securely enough, hence letting in quite a bit of wind etc - my advice - PLEASE look again - on this door it has double fastenings and it as its lipped upwards and not on the ground it is GREAT as when closed properly it is so snug and tight and doesn't let it ANY wind at all (minus the husband!) - and the last camping outing we did (3 weeks ago) we were up on a hill and my gosh did we have some strong winds up there, especially at night - and not a breeze was felt inside, totally amazing.

By the 2nd camping trip we had this up within 30 mins in quite strong winds (Tip.Get all poles in, then the corner guide ropes pegged, then your lift up & peg others in)

I am truly pleased we bought this tent and do not think we'll be upgrading for sometime. The one thing that might be nice would be an added extra porch which they don't seem to make for it, but reading the comments of Mathew Betts and he said a Zenobia tent Porch fits very well - that a consideration for next year.

We recently purchased one of these tents after some deliberation. Couldn't decide between Mojave 5 or Vango Icarus 500, in the end we decided on the Mojave 5 and the footprint. Unable to have a practice run to pitch and put away (as the tent was to big for our garden) we headed off to Norfolk last weekend to try out our new purchase.It was raining when we arrived - not a good start,

We preceded to unpack the tent and footprint, still not sure whether the tent is supposed to attach to the footprint or not, managed to get the tent erected and everything else sorted in about an hour & half. Not sure if tent was pegged down properly as we had lots of pegs left over, does the groundsheet and the flysheet get pegged separately? as I pegged them together in places.

We only used a side entrance as it was to wet to have the main door open and didn't come across any problems.

We didn't find any leaks but on the second night it was really cold and a clear sky and in the morning I noticed water on top of our sleeping pod, I am hoping this was condensation as I had the ventilation flap open behind the sleeping area. Other than that no major problems. But now maybe think we should have gone for the Vango at least we could get a porch for it unlike the Mojave.Value for money ??? only time will tell but for 110:00 Shouldn't really grumble too much.

We bought this as our return to camping tent after weeks of research - have just returned from our first trip out in it and I have to say it is great - stood up to everything the Welsh elements could throw at it with hardly a drip. We only put up the larger bedroom which meant we had a lot more living space (part of the reason we decided upon this one was exactly this flexibility!) It would have been nice if there were windows to peer out of but the white stripe helps let in plenty of light and the fact there are three doors to choose from means you can avoid the wind and have one of them open.

We also have the footprint which is a complete godsend -especially at packing up stage. We would really like a porch to add on which would take it up to a 10 out of 10.

I just wanted to post this onto here because I have noticed that other people have been asking about buying a suitable porch for this tent; I recently purchased the Mojave to upgrade from two smaller tents I thought were handy as an odd-trip away. Now a more serious camper, I got this tent from Go-outdoors and wanted an area for the cooker etc to be kept in a safe area with having two young girls.

I read on here about the Zenobia Porch fitting relatively well and thought I would give it a try! I must admit that it is the truth. It fits very snug on one side and on the other side, it leaves a small gap, which too be honest would probably be the same with any other porch you try to fit on (that anyone else may suggest for this tent) until Hi-tech decide to release an official one. With more practice, I think it could fit better. The carpet was a good purchase to make it that extra more comfortable during a camping trip. All in all an excellent tent, was very warm and spacious at night. One suggestion would be to take the advice of other Mojave owners and purchase a pack of velcro strips for the large front entrance which lacks the ability to be more secured down to keep the wind at bay!

I have uploaded a photo or two for all of you who are interested.

Have Just Bought This Tent to replace our 3 year old. As others have given this a great rating we decided to purchase at the opening day at Norwich last Saturday of our new super store, price 120.00 with Discount Card. Feel a bit upset seeing others have paid 99 quid, still who cares! Have today erected it in a neighbours garden (it was to big for our garden) No problems up and done in 25 mins, impressed with easy to follow instructions that actually work. Will report back when we have been away with it.

Bought our Majave 5 in March from Go-Outdoors Bristol. There are only 2 adults staying in here, and the fact that that 2 sleeping pods are separate swung it for us. We just put up the 3 sleep pod, and use the extra space for the cooking gear when we bring it in at night or when we go out, so it does not compromise our living space. We can also stand up right in the tent all over which is an amazing improvement on our previous 3 man dome tent.

The only fault I have found with it, is the main front opening, is only toggle shut, the material gapes so we end up putting bags and things against it when it rains/windy/at night, the bugs can come and go as freely as they wish, so am thinking about getting some sticky back velcro to put on, so we can close it a bit better.

We went to Dawlish Warren last week, and for a whole 24 hours it drizzled constantly, then tent held up brilliantly, no leaks (well only where the wind pushed the rain drips in through the zip teeth (am going to run a candle down both sides of each zip 1, to make them a bit quieter, 2. To see if it makes them a bit more waterproof))

For the price that the tent is, I think it is worth the money. Am now contemplating getting an extension so we can cook under the canopy rather than eating out at pubs every evening!

Highly recommended here

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.
