3 Reviews of the Louisiana 7P

By: Kthowlett  Reason: I own(ed) one  Made in: 2012   Rating:   Date: 03/09/2012

We bought this tent after our Coleman died in heavy winds and rain. On the way home from our camping holiday we visited a tent exhibition in York, where we were met by a scene of devastation following high winds and rain after the Jubilee weekend. However the only tents still standing were the Outwells. That made our decision to spend the extra easier we just had to choose the model.

The main reason for choosing this tent was the need for three bedrooms as I have a 13 year old boy and a 10year old daughter who do not wish to share for obvious reasons.

The Louisiana 7P was purchased online for £699!

Our summer holiday was in France where we spent 2 weeks in this tent. It was fantastic, plenty of room for all of us. Good quality fixtures and fittings, and relatively easy to put and down.

The only downsides are

1. The weight of the tent and poles

2. The head height, I was unable to reach the tops of the zips!

We are a family of 2 adults and 2 children and have now used our Louisiana 7P twice. The first time was just for one night in Brecon. We’d originally planned to spend 2 nights, but unfortunately, the weather was so atrocious we had to delay our arrival by one day. Having previously only managed to half put the tent up in the garden, we wanted to make sure the weather conditions were good for the first real pitch. After initial decisions on which way to pitch the tent, it went up relatively easily. We did find it quite difficult getting the tent poles onto the little metal clips, with the very last pole proving to be the most difficult. Once pitched, we discovered we couldn’t completely zip the inner door, so obviously something wasn’t quite right on this occasion. Being quite short, I found reaching some of the top zips impossible, and even my husband had to stand on a box to reach the loop to hang our light.

Our second trip was a 2 night stay at a campsite on the Gower nr Llangennith. We were in a small group staying in our own field with no electricity. When we arrived at the site, it was very windy (but not raining). We felt more confident about pitching this time, but we had the added problem of the wind. My 12 yr old daughter had to help support the poles, as the size of the flysheet threatened to blow everything over. Once up, and securely pegged the tent proved to be very stable, and this time we were able to zip up the inner door properly. We experimented with the layout of the tent, removing the front bedroom to see how much more space we had. The living space is big, but even more spacious without this bedroom, and we were able to open up the windows that were hidden behind it. The carpet is a must, definitely taking off the edge of any chill first thing in the morning, and making it quite a pleasant space for the family. The little curtained area at the back also proving to be a very useful changing space. The height inside the tent means that even in the bedrooms you don’t have to stoop.

The weather conditions during the weekend were of gusty wind and rain. The worst weather being on our 2nd night, with the rain really lashing down on and off for most of the night. In the morning I was quite relieved to see that the tent was still standing as the wind and rain had been so bad. Having checked the tent we discovered that the only water to come into the tent was in the porch (having come under the door). Mental note to remember to zip up the bath tub ground sheet next time.

The only real problem we have had so far is when pitching was that metal clips were hard to put into the bottom of the poles. We have partially broken the plastic inserts at the bottom of 2 of the poles (not sure if this happened when we putting them in or when taking them out). Also as I mentioned above, the height inside the tent (but then I am quite short) and being unable to reach some of the zips and the light loop. But other than that I am really looking forward to our 2-week break coming up. Just hoping the weather improves.

We are currently testing this tent for Outwell, as one of the Danish test families.

So far we are very satisfied with the tent. But after just 4 nights in very nice weather, it's hard to say anything about how it is doing in poor weather.

The layout is really good, and the tent is very roomy. We are 2 adults and 2 children, and we could certainly easy fit two more persons in the tent.

The only downside we think is the head-height. With 1,61 cm. I have problems reaching the zippers thru out the entire tent.

The tent is very quickly to erect, but due to the weight you really need to be two persons to do so.
