Description

The centre front guy line knot turned itself into a slip not, preventing insertion of the pole into the sleeve. I re-tied all of the major guy lines as figure of eight loops. During our trip we experienced strong gusting winds, which the tent stood up to well enough (although it did shake about quite a bit), and a night of heavy rain; not a drop came in!

The front corner attachment points for the bedroom inner are starting to fail where they join the groundsheet. The Coleman Mosedale 5 is 5-berth poled tent with considerable weather protection. I recommend it for up 5 people, e.g. a family of five and to lesser extent, a group of friends. It does not hurt if you have some experience at camping and you have pitched a tent before, but in general, the Mosedale 5 is beginner friendly and mostly hassle-free, an ideal partner for casual getaways and weekend breaks. There are, of course, poled tents with built in porch, such as the Vango Lomond II 500. It may be better value for money if you buy a tent that does not need any extension. Accommodating up to ten people, the Quest Touareg Bell is a tipi-style tent perfect for summer camping with large families. During the summer, roll up the sides and enjoy the spacious socialising area. In the winter, roll down the sides and socialise comfortably around the single central pole. Stay cool in warmer weather and comfy in the winter with the 100% cotton canvas flysheet equipped with breathing and insulating properties. The tent pitches much more easily with the shortened poles, and I am happy with the outcome, but I feel that I should not have had to do this to a new tent!

What to look for when buying a new family tent

It has survived some downpours and wind OK, although I would prefer a little porch to keep the inside dry when going in and out. Before purchasing the tent, consider the number of people that’ll be staying inside and whether they’d be able to move around comfortably. Although it might take longer to pitch a tentthat’s much bigger than the average, the more helping hands you have, the faster the process. • Does it have the right features for your needs? We have bought the extension, which we have yet to try out, but that should give us much more room, probably making us use the tent for longer trips, and the awning with the van for weekend trips. Although the Vango Icarus 500 DLX has a slightly smaller living room, it also has an optional front porch which would eliminate the difference in size, and you’d still be better off with the Vango than with a Coleman Mosedale 5 + front extension setup. The roll up curtains for the four little windows at the front corners of the tent are a bit of a fiddle; the main window and the mosquito net doors are fine.

Fibreglass poles - highly flexible and lightweight fiberglass poles guarantee a good response to wind and storms Perfect for a small family camping trip, the Vango Beta 450XL can comfortably accommodate up to four people. The tent gives an impressive space-to-weight ratio due to its tunnel design. The Vango Beta gets its sturdy stability from the Tension Band System, which can be adjusted to prevent sideways movement in strong, changeable winds. You can also store various pieces of camping gear in the functional porch area. Alternatives, that are 5-berth and are more expensive, well there aren’t many, if at all. Tents that are more expensive are usually bigger (6-berth) than the Coleman Mosedale 5, such as the Vango Icarus 600 DLX.
