A bedside table may sound like an extravagant use of space in your tent, but if you've set up a bedroom with camp beds for your camping holiday, such storage may prove very useful. And fortunately, the Outwell Barmouth won't take up a lot of space in the boot of your car either :-)
Unfolding the Outwell Barmouth tent furniture
Putting the Outwell Barmouth bedside table is so easy.
The main unit simply pops up, and then you fasten the zip on the back of the unit so that it keeps its shape.
Each drawer simply unfolds, and then you place the drawer base insert inside them.
Is it flimsy? Just how practical is it?
This is just folding furniture, so I would not recommend placing much weight on the top.
A lantern and other lightweight items, like your phone or a book, are no problem.
The bedside table is 50 cm high when put together. An ideal height if you have a camp bed.
Each drawer can take a maximum load of 2 kg, and the unit has an impressive 40 litres of storage space.
I've used this a couple of times so far. The first time, we used it the large bedrooms Outwell Hartsdale 4PA tent with the camp beds. It was a cold night, and we placed the Outwell Katla heater on it.
The next time we used it was as additional storage in the Easy Camp Match Air 500 tent. This tent has smaller bedrooms, so the Outwell Barmouth was placed just outside the bedrooms. This was fine, as we were sleeping on mats on the ground.
Overall, I think this is a practical storage solution. I like how it folds flat and takes up very little space.
I would use this as supplemental storage. You'll still need a larger and more sturdy storage unit for a long family camp.
The other negative is that it doesn't come with a storage bag. I keep it in one of the plastic bags that some other camping gear came in. It certainly would be annoying to get to the campsite only to find you left one of the pieces at home.
Those niggles aside, I think this is a great piece of additional storage that won't break the bank or your car boot! ;-)
