Kampa is a welcomed new entrant into the world of inflatable tents with their new Kampa Southwold Tents - the Southwold 4+2 and the Southwold 8. If you're looking for a large 8-berth family tent that takes only seconds set up then the Southwold 8 could be your answer.
The Kampa Southwold 8 is so fast to put-up that you can use it for touring and weekend breaks as well as extended holidays. At last, a large tent that you can use for a quick overnight stop!
The Southwold 8 sleeps 8 in a vis-à-vis style arrangement with two sets of bedrooms facing each other. The inner tents are in a 4 + 2 + 2 configuration giving plenty of options and privacy plus, the four berth inner comes with a roll- away dividing curtain.
Kampa's new inflatable tents means there's no more traditional steel poles but instead an inflatable 'AirFrame' that is pre-attached to the awning and so there is now awkward or time-consuming assembly.
The 'AirPoles' that create the frame are also inter-connected so that you can pump the entire frame up using just one valve. Conversely if something happens to damage one of the 'AirPoles' it can be isolated from neighbouring poles using the in-built isolation valve therefore ensuring continued use of the Awning while a repair or replacement is arranged.
You simply use a double-action hand pump (supplied) to inflate the AirFrame and it will be fully inflated in 60 seconds. There's also no need to worry about over inflating these AirPoles as they are very high pressure and the pump will simply cease to work when they are full. You will be amazed how rigid the AirFrame is when fully inflated.
Even with the generous bedroom accommodation of the Southwold 8 there’s still plenty of living space (c. 270x330cm) within the tent and the light roof panel and the plentiful windows add to the feeling of space.
There's a door in either side wall both featuring a rain save canopy overhead and both with mesh double doors to increase air circulation while keeping bugs out. Next to each door is a full size picture window with external privacy covers.
The Kampa Southwold 8 has a fully sewn in groundsheet that will keep the elements at bay. The front and inside of the inner tents feature numerous storage pockets, extremely useful for your camping accessories.
This Southworld 8 Tent Package also includes a 100% polyethylene footprint groundsheet which will protect the sewn-in groundsheet of the tent plus a soft polyester Southwold 8 Carpet that fits perfectly into the living space of the tent to provides additional insulation and warmth under foot.
