1 Reviews of the Orava 500

By: Mcclays  Reason: I own(ed) one  Made in: 2015   Rating: 

I got this as I was going away to France camping for 10 nights and felt like I needed something bigger than my 4 man tent. (There is just me, my husband and our dog btw)It was super easy to put up, however I would recommend watching a video on youtube about pitching tunnel tents if you have never done it before.

The layout of the tent is great. There are 2 bedroom compartments (they always advertise to berth of the tent and you can never understand how that many people would fit in the tent, never mind sleep in it - not the care here!); one is a large room that would comfortably fit 3 people in it. We use this room for the2 of us and the dog and we have plenty of room to move around. The other room is a good side/smaller room which you would be able to fit a double sleeping bag in but maybe not much room to move around, we use this room as a little dressing room with all our clothes and toiletries (next year when we return to france, I think I will put a portaloo in there getting up in the night busting and fighting with zips was not great!) Anyway. Both these rooms have a great height and ventilation.

The main living area is big! We had our coolbox in there with a collapsible cupboard with a small tv on top and inflatable sofa and inflatable single seat with a very small coffee table like thing! Again comfortable massive vent that lets the cool air in and also a mesh door to the side. We have the carpet the for this tent too which just makes it even more confortable! Only thing I wish it had is a central lamp hanging point :-( id love to have one of these!

Then there is porch. This area is fantastic! Its like having a conservatory on you tent, its crazy! Again its a really good size so even in the rain (which unfortunately we had a lot of when we were in france) you can sit out here, play cards, cook etc. Out here we had our kitchen unit, stove, pots pans 2 camping chairs and a table. There is such great versatility with the doors. There is a massive door/doors which you can open separately or together if you want. You can also get king poles and peg them out so you have a huge canopy! The sides next to the door can also be rolled back to open up the front event more.

Cant wait to go camping now :-)
