The Outwell Rockland 5P is slightly smaller than the larger Outwell Family Tents but still is crammed full of features. We think this tent is ideal for a family of four, giving Mum and Dad a little more space in the three-person bedroom. 🙂
Our Score: 9.1/10
- A good flexible tent for a family of four.
- Darkened bedrooms.
- Moveable front.
- Quick and Quiet bedrooms.
- Larger Ambassador Bedrooms.
- Privacy Windows
- HookTrack System
The not so good
- None I can think of.

Outwell Rockland 5P Bedrooms
The Outwell Rockland 5P has two bedrooms: a two-person bedroom and a larger three-person bedroom.
We think this configuration is ideal for a family of four. Either you can grab the larger bedroom yourselves to store more things, or if you have kids that are best kept apart, the three-person bedroom could be ideal for them.
Alternatively, you can remove the divider and just have one large bedroom.
All the bedrooms use the darkened inners, which should help when the sun rises very early in the summer. Plus, they use the new Outwell Quick and Quite magnetic tent doors.
There are useful storage pockets in the bedrooms, plus the bedrooms are Outwell's Ambassador Master Bedrooms, which are 230 cm deep, with more head-height and a better design for raised airbeds or camp beds.
Flexible Living Arrangement
Another neat feature of the Outwell Rockland 5P is the moveable front.
If you prefer to have a massive living space, you can zip the wall onto the front of the tent, and attach the additional groundsheet that comes with the tent.
Alternatively, you could zip the wall between the porch and the living space, creating three separate zones in the tent: a wet-dry porch zone, a sealed living zone, and a sleeping zone.
The Outwell Rockland 5P also comes with the Outwell HookTrack system, helping you to place lighting and other hanging items where you want them.
Poles, not Air
With many family tents being inflatable these days, you might be surprised to learn that the Rockland 5P uses steel poles.
There are four sleeves that the poles slide into. Being a tunnel style of tent, this arrangement is easy to pitch.
An advantage of poled tents over inflatable tents is that you can separate the heavy poles from the tent, which can make it easier to transport and store. The poles weigh 10.3kg and the tent weighs 21.2kg.
