Camping Awards 2021: Best XL Family Tent

1ed4a373-b4fd-4b8b-a9f5-69353da57bb8

Supersize me! The fashion for XL tents (seven-berth and above) shows no sign of slowing down and if you really want to spread out on the campsite then it might be time to go large

WINNER

OUTWELL KNOXVILLE 7SA

  • Seven-berth inflatable tunnel tent
  • Three spacious living zones 
  • Silent access doors
  • 6,000mm hydrostatic head
  • £1,699.99

Our verdict The Knoxville manages to combine size and quality to great effect. In our view, this is the best tent of its class on the market right now.

The first thing to strike you is that it is absolutely enormous – but it’s surprisingly easy to pitch and packed with features. We think this is an excellent large family tent that should ensure happy holidays come rain or shine.

Commended

Outdoor Revolution Airedale 9.0 SE

Nine-berth (+4) tunnel tent • Two double side-annexes • £1349

Our verdict Size-wise, this great tent is a beast, with the potential to sleep up to 13 people. Alternatively, it can provide comfortable and spacious sleeping accommodation for up to nine campers.

Olpro Odyssey Breeze

Eight-berth inflatable tunnel tent • Sewn-in groundsheet • £999

Our verdict They say big is beautiful, and the Odyssey Breeze certainly lives up to that. With room for up to eight people, it’s a great option for large families or groups and it comes in at a good price for what’s on offer.
