3 Reviews of the Mallard 5

By: Jonelle Atkinson  Reason: I own(ed) one  Made in: 2005   Rating: 

I'm not actually clear about year of manufacture, I bought it approx 4 years ago from a camping sale in Preston Park, Stockton on Tees. I find it very easy to put up, my 12 year old nephew and I managed it, no problems. It is big enough to stand up in, essential for me being 5' 10 and the 2 double sleeping compartments at the back mean there is an ample living space at the front to set up your camping table and chairs, comfortably for 6 people if it should rain, there's also a small awning for shelter from light drizzle/ shade. 2 doors make for more choice/ privacy/ good air flow. The only 2 things I would suggest for improvement; we bought an extra ground sheet to use underneath the sleeping compartments and the fly although fits close to the ground at the back, is a couple of inches short at the front, meaning draughts creeping in at night can make it chilly (so don't forget your warm socks) - but perhaps that's why it was a bargain at only 80.00.

I bought mine on ebay for 80 in 2003 (so probably only a year old, though its a very dark blue model so not sure) and its done me pretty well. Only an occasional camper I've found it pretty easy to pitch, about 20 minutes depending on who's my anchor man. I dislike the lack of mudflaps but like the layout - tall living area, cosier sleeping area, and having two doors. Has done about 15 nights with me without major mishap (though a pole broke when forced into the wrong sleeve by a particularly useless anchor man) but it now has a small rip, I think just from handling, and the bedroom zips play up a bit, though they are gently usable if well pitched. One is worse than the other and I tend not to use it. Has survived some pretty ferocious summer storms.

Had this tent for several seasons now, and it's done really well. We bought it when our children were 1 and 3, and wanted to sleep all in 1 bedroom, there is also a divider which we use now. It has been used in all weathers, has never leaked when many others have, and has been cooler in hot weather than many (poles included for front canopy). Space in the living area for table and 4 chairs, and on 1 wet holiday 4 bikes as well (although that was a bit of a tight fit and the chairs were folded at night when the bikes were in). We are now considering upgrading as it was rather draughty (no SIG in communal area) on our last chilly holiday, our children are now older and we would like separate bedrooms, and a bit more space. SIG for bedrooms, clip in fitted one for communal area. Easy to pitch. Communal area 305 x 350 cm, bedroom 210 x 350cm. If you have very young children, and see 1 of these 2nd hand then I would highly recommend it.
