4 Reviews of the Bahia 7

By: Zaccybabe  Reason: I own(ed) one  Made in: 2014   Rating: 

We love this tent, it's a beast but actually easier to erect than our old Outwell hartford xl. We agree that the pitch 4 corners and work from the back using the fibreglass poles works best.

Weve camped in torrential rain and it stood firm.

If I could change anything I would prefer the porch to have a fully sewn in groundsheet but only because our dog can sneak under the porch to escape. We always keep the main section closed from the porch.

We have 2 add on pods which we use one for the porta loo and one for the wardrobe and cool boxes.

The bedrooms state for 7 but again I would agree comfortably sleeps 4/5

We chose this tent for the size and HH6000 rating. It's a fantastic tent and if you deal with the online suppliers you can get a good deal. I got the tent, carpet and footprint together for £1000 just by playing 2 sites against each other.

If you like space inside your tent and want something that you will keep you dry in any weather then this is for you.

Virgin campers and we had to go with the biggest tent!

Although the instructions on the bag aren't that clear (no text, just images) we managed to pitch it fairly easily.

We pegged the 4 corners as stated, but we did the front porch poles first, rather than on the 2nd rib.

Once up, it is huge. Huge front porch which we used for cooking and food storage area. We also had an Outwell Calgary L table in here and still had loads of room. Lots of windows and vents and this opens up as an open porch or a large canopy.

The living room is very spacey. Windows and vents and the light coloured fabric ceiling making sure plenty of light filtered through. We bought the carpet for this area which was great. A heavy duty backing and it is wipe clean. The only downside is that you can't fix it into place, so it kept moving about. More of an annoyance than anything else. We had 2 gravity chairs, 2 blow up chairs, the dogs crate and a table in here and still loads of room. The velcro and hook are a good feature for an electric light.

We had all 3 bedrooms set up. Night ceiling, great feature. Plenty ventilation and storage pockets. Storage pockets are also in the living room. These come in very handy.

We bought a storage pod and a cuisine pod and are fantastic add-ons. These were very easy to attach.

Plenty of room and a well made tent, of course, it's Outwell.

Sleeps 7 but I would say comfortably sleeps 4.

Very easy to put down and pack away into its own wheeled bag.

We have camped for 7 days, so far. The first 2 through torrential rain and flooding in the area, but our tent never budged. No leaks and we were snug and secure, whilst other campers packed up and went home!

Highly recommend!

We bought this tent earlier this year & we have not been disappointed. We were already big Outwell fans as we previously owned a Montana 6 & front awning which we loved & used lots of times. The Bahia 7 is even better, it has exceeded our expectations, we have used it twice for long weekends this year & it is perfect! I cannot fault the design & although it is a big tent it is easier to put up than our old Montana. We watched the 'You Tube' pitching video & peg the 4 main corners first, it's a bit tricky to get the 1st main pole up but then after this it is easy with a bit of practice. We experienced all the elements when camping in it & it stood firm, very waterproof & lots of great features such as zip up curtains, we even fitted about 15 friends in the tent with their chairs when it rained one evening by unzipping the divider between the porch area & main tent! It is so spacious & well designed, the materials are of high quality which you expect from Outwell. I cannot fault it & would recommend it to any family who like lots of space, well worth the £1000 price tag! If you search the web there are some good tent package deals inc carpet & footprint which I feel are a must, especially the footprint to take the wear from the underside of the tent. Next on my list is a zip-on side pod so we can use it to put our porta loo in when all the kids are with us. Overall I have scored it 10 out of 10 as there is nothing I can find fault with, a brilliant tent!

I love this tent! The room in it is amazing even when the weather is bad you just have so much living space.

Pitching it may feel a bit daunting to start with however we have found that the best way to do it is peg out the corners and the front and back guys then work from the back but put the fibreglass poles in as you go as this keeps it in place. This is a heavy tent and don't think anyone could do it on their own but well worth it when it's up.

We have bought the cuisine pod and storage pod and they are so easy to put up and make a great addition to the tent.

The space in the tent though is brilliant there are two of us over six foot and neither of us have to stoop in this tent.

The night sky ceiling in the bedroom works great but also the white ceilings in the main tent keep it light when the weather is bad but also cooler when the weather is good.

The front awning part is just so spacious but also lovely for sitting in.

This tent is brilliant and I know it's not cheap but as a long tern purchase well worth it.

We have camped with 7 days solid rain and not a single leek also done strong winds and it did not budge! Would not think twice about recommending this tent!

Manufacturer's Description

The largest tent in our aptly named Superior Collection, the Bahia 7 sleeps up to seven in three bedrooms. The big news is that versatility and stability result from the use of the new Outwell Hybrid Frame System that not only allows the development of the Outwell Integrated Vent System, but has enabled us to create a tent that can be customised by zipping on optional pods. There is a large living area and versatility continues with a front room that can be opened fully, or in various combinations, by opening the panorama front and side doors. The tent is made from our own logo-embossed Outtex® 6000 in Estate Blue and features tinted windows. Outwell Wind Stabilizer and Easy Pegging Systems enhance stability and ease of pitching. The inner’s front is also embossed and its Night Sky Ceiling helps extend sleep.

Recommendation: The flagship full-featured customisable large family tent in our own market-leading polyester fabric.
