The Outwell Glendale 5 Tent is repeated in 2014 but with a couple of new design changes that will make this tent even more popular this season. The 'elbows' in each of the steel poles have been rounded to give a more aerodynamic appearance, plus the front Durawrap 'Rain-Safe' pole extends out further to provide greater protection to the front doorway.
At first glance the Glendale 5 tent may look like any other tunnel tent but in actuality it is longer and wider than most comparable tents. It has the proportions of a large steel poled tent like the Vermont LP but in fact the Glendale 5 has a hybrid frame - part steel and part Durawrap fibreglass - that allows for its generous proportions while also keeping the weight and bulkiness of the tent to a minimum.
The Outwell Glendale 5 is essentially a three room tunnel tent with a versatile 2+3 berth sleeping compartment – which can be opened up to a full 5-person bedroom - or one half of the inner removed if not in use. The main living space measures a very generous 3.6x2.8m and features a fully sewn-in groundsheet and a side entrance door.
Through a wide dividing doorway is a fully enclosed porch area which itself offers plenty of additional space to relax, dine or establish your kitchen area. This area has a detachable groundsheet for ease of cleaning.
There's a large canopy style front doorway which can be rolled up or propped out to form a sun canopy (porch poles not provided). Another feature are the multiple large windows throughout which allow in a massive amount of light but also feature adjustable toggle-up curtains (ideal for strippers) to adjust the light/privacy levels.
