The Outwell Knoxville 7SA is a massive family tent, with a massive spec list to match.

If you have a large family or want oodles of space for your family camping holiday, the Outwell Knoxville 7SA provides loads of room. And to a high spec too.

Here’s a quick overview video from Outwell.

Tent Layout

This tent is a supersized version of a great family tent layout.  You have three zones: 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, there is a power cable entry 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.

We think 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 a generous size, with plenty of space for camping furniture.

This area of the tent has two external doors, both 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 it more practical when pitching.

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 can be sealed up completely with a large front door.

We would not typically us 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 really like this as these doors self-close, and 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 have the bottom part of the window covered 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 does come with wheels to help you get it into position.
