The Outwell Master Bedroom and Sleep Comfort ethos

22. November 2016

Welcome to an exciting new era in tent design that sees us create new levels of bedroom comfort. Our super size Master Bedroom concept has evolved to improve the camping experience by offering much needed extra space for mobility and storage to increase comfort levels.

But first, the history…

For years, campers have complained that the minimum tent bedroom size of 200cm long x 60cm wide as laid down by the official standard DIN 112-02-01 AA was just too small. While we complied with the standard to assist campers compare products, we also acknowledged that more space in the bedroom was needed and suggested, through our Outwell Sleep Comfort icon, a realistic number of campers an inner could accommodate based on 70cm-80cm per person.

As part of ongoing evolution the Outwell Research and Development department has continued to canvas campers’ opinions in this area and 2016 saw us set a new standard in comfort and practicality by launching the Master Bedroom in our popular Smart Air Polyester and Air Comfort inflatable family tent collections.

New Outwell Standard in Sleep Comfort

We redesigned the bedroom using a sharply sloping back to increase valuable standing height throughout. And the depth was extended from the Outwell standard 215cm to 250cm to provide much needed space at the foot and head of the bed. All make dressing easier and allow the use of handy furniture like bedside tables and wardrobes.

We combined these features with our proven Universal Inner for the ultimate balance of sleeping and living space. The ability for a camper to control their environmental space to suit needs has never been so flexible and the new Master Bedroom redefined expectations for practical space and comfort, enhanced by our Night Sky ceiling that ensures low ambient light levels for optimum rest.

Three new bedroom systems

This year we build on the Master Bedroom concept with three new bedroom grades that appear in all but the Encounter tent collection, providing the extra space and headroom required for easy mobility and bedroom furniture. Common features throughout include Night Sky Ceiling and a cable port that brings mains power to the bedside for lights, tablets and more.

Colour-coded red and green respectively, the enhanced space of the Royal and Ambassador Master Bedrooms have been created by increasing length to 250cm and adjusting the cut of the rear wall to increase standing headroom. Rear mesh panels lead to our new exterior Rear Ventilation System while the Royal also features wide side windows in both inner and outer for views out from the bedroom and extra light in when desired. A clothes line adds to the convenience and comfort.

The Royal Master Bedroom

Royal Bedrooms, indentified via the red colour-code, feature in the aspirational Smart Air TC, Smart Air Polyester and Premium Outwell tent collections.

The Ambassador Bedrooms

Ambassador Bedrooms, featuring the green colour-code, can be found in Air TC, Air Comfort, DeLuxe and Élan tents.

The Premier Bedrooms

Premier Bedrooms are colour-coded black and provide extra space through the minimum 215cm length – 15cm above industry standard. These are used in the Air Polyester and Privilege Collections.

While the Encounter Collection designs do not lend themselves to a Master Bedroom it shares the new Thermo-reflective coating found in all our polyester tent collections. This has been applied to the inside of the outer tent above the inner to act as a barrier to radiant heat, working with our Night Sky Ceiling that dims ambient light levels, to help create the ideal ambience for sleep comfort.
