Did we choose the right tent?


Holly "Little Pickle's Mum" theatre graduate, lifestyle blogger and passionate family camper reflects on her experiences with her Kampa Paloma 5 AIR tent, having purchased it last February at the Caravan, Camping & Motorhome Show, NEC Birmingham.

Almost a year ago now, we bought our first proper tent. Before then, we’d made do with little pup tents – which are fine for the odd night away or a weekend in the summer, but not practical when camping as a family and for longer periods. We excitedly went along to the Caravan and Camping Show at the NEC and came home with our Kampa Paloma 5 Air tent.


Finding the Paloma 5 Air tent felt like we’d stumbled upon the perfect tent for us. On paper, it ticked all the boxes we could have hoped for, and it was just on the cusp of our budget.

  • Air poles for quick pitching
  • Large inside living space
  • Porch entrance with a canopy extension
  • Bedroom area that can be kept as one large room or split into two
  • Plenty of windows to create a light and airy living space

We used the tent in a variety of situations last year: for a Bank Holiday weekend away, for a couple of festivals (Timber Festival with Pickle, and Cornbury Festival without him), and a longer summer holiday in Cornwall. As I start to plan our trips away for this year, it felt right to have a look back and see if the reality of using our Kampa Paloma 5 Air met our expectations.
