The Outwell Dawlish is a great idea. It’s both a seat and storage and folds down really small for transport.
If you are taking away the kids for a long camp break, storage is key to help prevent your tent descend into a scene of chaos.
Unfortunately, tent furniture can sometimes take up too much space in the car.
This year, 2020, Outwell has introduced some innovative folding storage solutions that look smart, are practical, and fold down small for transporting to the campsite.
And fortunately, Outwell agreed to send me over one of these to review: the Outwell Storage low seat & storage.
When the Dawlish Seat is folded up, it measures less than 10 cm high, with the sides folded up and stored inside the lid or seat.
This has got to be one of the simplest pieces of camping furniture to put together. You simply unfold the sides and slot the base in the bottom then place the seat on top.
It makes a handy little storage container. Ideal for storing toys! 🙂
The total capacity is 22 litres and it’s just under 30 cm high when put together.
Using it as a seat
The top is cushioned and works as a seat.
It’s not very high (there is a taller version of the Dawlish), but it’s an ideal additional seat for a child.
The Outwell Dawlish is an affordable and very practical addition to your family camping kit.
It get’s the Thumbs Up Award.
- Useful storage and seat. Ideal for kids toys and as a kids seat (when they are old enough not to need a seat back.
- Folds small for transport.
- It doesn't come with a bag, and so you'll need to store it in something to keep all the bits together.
