For small families working to a budget this summer but who also want a decent quality tent that won't let them down then the Easy Camp Wilmington 500 will fit the bill.
This 5-person tunnel tent has a simple 3 pole construction that is pitched outer first. Once you have erected the flysheet, you then toggle in the full sized bathtub groundsheet that comes with this tent. This groundsheet is waterproof and toggles to the flysheet to create almost a seamless seal. Being a 'bathtub' groundsheet it also has side walls to ensure the elements are kept at bay.
The breathable inner tent is then hung inside the tent. This is a 5-berth inner in a 3+2 arrangement with a 'D' entrance door on either side of the divider curtain. The divider curtain can be removed should you prefer an open plan 5-person arrangement.
The living space measures 280x300cm so providing plenty of space for dining, etc. Off the living area are two entrances - a roll-up side entrance and a roll-up front entrance. Both of these roll-up panels can be propped open to form a sun canopy (canopy poles not supplied) when the weather allows. The front door also has a mesh double door. There's also 3 PVC windows, all with internal privacy covers, that let in plenty of daylight.
Additional features include front and rear venting, reinforced guyline points, step-in doorways and internal storage pockets.
