The Outwell Corvette 7AC (formerly Corvette XL) tent is a supreme seven-berth tent, with plenty of living space, sleeping space and full standing height. The Corvette 7AC features the new AIR system, meaning it can be pitched very quickly, with it being an inflatable tent. The unique feature of the Corvette 7AC is the flexibility, it can have three separate areas, the porch, the fully sewn-in living space, and the sleeping area. Or you can open the porch up fully by removing the front doorway entirely, to create a large internal living space, with an open front. Perfect for the larger family or group wanting a lot of space, comfort and luxury.

Berth – This shows the number of people that the tent can sleep within the inner tents of a model of tent, in line with the industry standard. Normal procedure is to look for a slightly larger tent, for example, a family of four usually purchase a five or six berth tent, to give added room and comfort.
|Hydrostatic Head (mm)||
Hydrostatic Head (Tents) – a waterproof rating for technical fabrics measured in mm. The higher the rating the more waterproof the fabric is. A rating of 1500mm is deemed waterproof, but on a tent, look for a rating of 3000 or higher. Measured by the height of water column a fabric weave can take before it begins to “sweat”. “Polycotton” tents will not have a Hydrostatic Head level, as they are not treated for waterproofing.

Polycotton - a blend of polyester and cotton, primarily cotton (usually around 65% cotton / 35% polyester split). Polycotton is a more natural fabric for camping, as it is breathable, far more durable material, reducing the effects of condensation. Offers greater versatility in hot and cold climates.
Ripstop Nylon – a durable material used in tents which is strong and repairable due to its Ripstop properties.
