OUR VERDICT A spacious family tent that has loads of flexibility and a fantastic multipurpose side annexe and is packed with quality features.
When it comes to family tents, Outdoor Revolution’s Airedale range is up there with the best. With excellent materials and top-quality design and workmanship, it’s intended to give you as much usable space as possible.
The Airedale 7.0SE is a premium seven-berth inflatable tent with a large, double side-annexe that gives you loads of options. It could work as a double bedroom, a vestibule/access point or as a storage room. And for families with young children it would make an ideal playroom, where you can hide toys away and keep the main room tidy.
Outdoor Revolution also gives you the option of buying an internal inner tent to create another sleeping area, and when that is added to the annexe, the total sleeping capacity can be increased to a mind-boggling 11 campers!
It’s not just the size and capacity that makes the 7.0SE so well-suited for family holidays.
A panel backed with mesh windows separates the internal living space from the front porch, and this can be fully rolled back or zipped closed to create a totally enclosed area. It provides the tent with some versatility and gives plenty of ventilation and a feeling of open space on hot summer days. The bathtub-style groundsheet in the front porch can be removed, allowing you to use the area as a wet room.
Another great feature is the double patio-style side door, which opens the tent to the outside further. The Airedale also includes Outdoor Revolution’s Intelligent Frame Relief Valve, a clever piece of technology which prevents you from overinflating the tubes and regulates the air pressure in hot temperatures. For extra reassurance, the air tubes come with a lifetime guarantee.
