Tent Layout

This tent is a supersized version of a great family tent layout.  You have three zones: the front porch area, inner living space, and bedrooms.

The Tent's Bedrooms

At the back of the tent are three generously sized bedrooms.

Each is 230 cm deep, which is much longer than most tent bedrooms, and the three-person room in the middle is ideal for Mum & Dad's master bedroom ;-)

All the bedrooms have excellent Outwell Quick & Quiet doors, so no messing around with zips if you don't want to. Plus, a power cable entry point at either end of the bedroom block.

The rooms are darkened too, which should help your kids sleep longer when the sun rises early at the campsite.

Note that one of the double bedrooms is narrower than the other, making it ideal for a child who wants their own room.

This sleeping layout is ideal for a family wanting a holiday tent, with two adults and 2-3 children.

Inner Living Space

The tent's inner living space is generous, with plenty of space for camping furniture.

This area has two external doors with bug mesh, so you can help keep this part of the tent cool on hot days without filling the tent with flies.

External power cable entry is available on both sides of the Outwell Knoxville 7SA tent, making pitching more practical.

Of course, you can get the carpet accessory for this area of the tent. Something we recommend is worth investing in.

The Porch Area

This final zone is a spacious porch area.  Though I call it a 'porch area', it comes with a groundsheet you can optionally put down and be sealed up completely with a large front door.

We would not typically use the groundsheet in this area, with the front door either fully or half-open. This makes it a very flexible space for people to come and go without taking their shoes off.  It's an ideal place to leave muddy boots and wet coats to dry.

Access into the inner sanctum of the tent is by another pair of Quick & Quiet doors.  I like this as these doors self-close, so it will help keep the bugs out of the inner part of the tent.

There is also a power cable point to run some power from the inner part of the tent into this front zone.

Windows

All of the windows in this tent are tinted for added privacy, plus they have zip-up blinds. Zip-up blinds are a lot less hassle than toggle-up blinds and enable you to cover the bottom part of the window for more privacy. This is ideal for first thing in the morning or dressing kids in the inner living space.

Pitching

This is an inflatable tent, so there are no tent poles for the main structure (there is one small pole for the side porch).

Being such a large tent, it will take at least two of you to pitch, as it weighs 46 kg.  The tent bag has wheels to help you get it into position.
