A great weekend or touring tent for couples or small families, packed with quality
WHO’S IT FOR?
The tent is aimed at smaller families or couples who like to spread out.
WHAT’S IT LIKE?
The first thing we noticed when the remodelled Airedale 5.0S was pitched was how bright it was, even on a grey day. With large panoramic PVC windows and front door, the light simply floods in. The enclosed front porch area makes an ideal camping kitchen, as the front can be completely zipped open for ventilation.
There’s a mesh panel built in to one of the windows, too, which allows extra ventilation above your camping cooker.
Through the inner doors takes you into a spacious living area with huge side doors. The darkened bedrooms also have plenty of ventilation to keep you cool on balmy summer nights and deal with condensation.
The Airedale range has been popular since its introduction in 2016. Not only do these high-spec inflatable tents look the part, but they incorporate some of the most advanced technology on the market. The Dynamic Speed Valve makes inflation and deflation easy and the Intelligent Frame (IF) system creates what Outdoor Revolution says is the strongest, largest diameter tube on the market.
It also regulates the air pressure to stop over-inflation, and if air inside the tube expands in hot weather, the valve automatically releases air to regulate the pressure.
Overall this is a top-quality tent for top family holidays.
For 2019, the Airedale 5.0S has been remodelled. The addition of more ventilation makes the tent more comfortable and the front door can be used in various configurations, including a useful porch area.
