2020 Tent Owner Satisfaction Awards update

Our definition: Here, we’re looking at tents that were sold for anything between £300 and £999. That means a broad spectrum in the middle of the market. It’s also where larger, weekender and family-size tents are more to the fore.

Outwell’s 90% satisfaction rating gave it top spot, with Kampa on 88%, and Vango 87% – all of which should be reassuring news for anyone thinking of buying a mainstream tent.

This was Outwell’s second win in this class – it was also top last time around. But, all the brands mentioned above have performed consistently since we first began the Tent Survey back in 2016.

Please note: This is a price category and includes all types and sizes of tents that were purchased (regardless of manufacturers’ recommended prices) for between £300 and £999.
