Outwell Oklahoma Day Tent

 

 

 

The Tent


The Outwell Oklahoma is from Outwell’s Deluxe range of tents and is the largest of there current range of day tents. This tent utilizes Outwell’s Power Stability System to ensure the tent is kept secure and incorporates a screen house door on each side. This tent is at home as a kitchen tent on a campsite or can be used as a gazebo when at home and not camping. Being easy to erect and a reasonable pack size this is a cheaper option to increasing your camping accommodation without the need to purchase another tent. The tent is made to Outwell’s very high specification (see below) and is designed to ensure comfort and a great additional space for your camping experience.

Erection / Pitching

 

There are two different poles for the tent, the side legs and the roof poles which makes the pitching relative easy. Once the tent is out of the bag and in position insert the two roof poles into position. Insert two legs into any one of the sides, ensuring that the material loops at the top are slide over the leg poles. We then after experience have found if you then insert the pin of the ring & pin system into the bottom of these legs and loosely peg, this helps with the final erection. Insert the final two legs and insert pins from the ring & pin system. Adjust the tent poles to be in alignment and then finally peg out the tent and the four pre attached guy ropes. The detachable groundsheet is then located inside the tent and secured at each corner by a tent peg.

 

Pros and Cons

 

 

Pros

Cons:

Large kitchen area

Spacious

Well ventilated

Stable

Additional kit to transport

 

The Cost


Around £120 for the 2007 model but the cost may increase slightly for the 2008 season.

 

The Verdict


This is a great addition to your camping kit if additional storage / kitchen area is needed but you do not wish to replace your tent. We use ours as kitchen and it provides ample space for table, chairs and the kitchen unit and keeps as well as for safety and removing your cooking from your main tent. The tent warms up nicely in the evening with the cooker on but can easily be ventilated by opening of the doors, indeed opening all four doors transforms it into a Gazebo type structure. Some sites we seen do charge a small fee for the additional tent but we on trips of more than a few days would now not be without it.
