This is a review of the Kampa Rally 330 tent and awning carpet. A cushioned and well thought of camping product which we look in to more detail at below.
The Kampa Rally 330 Tent Awning Carpet is designed for specific Kampa Rally awnings, that being said I didn’t have one of those but instead brought along to use while camping with friends and to test out in their big tent. At first glance, it was more like a carpet and huge rug than the others we have looked at, felt solid under foot, seems heavy duty and also has some nice features, to boot it looks good too.
While walking on it barefoot, it feels comfortable, warm and soft. It is made from a soft cushioned nylon material. There is no waterproof base layer to this carpet and what is recommended is that you purchase the matching breathable underlay ground sheet. We used this with a large ground sheet our friends had and this worked except we had to tuck in the ends of the carpet to hold it down securely in line with the ground sheet.
You needn’t worry if you are using this inside your tent because your ground sheet which is built in, called your bathtub of the tent will easily keep the water outside and combined with this tent carpet by Kampa will make a great hard wearing flooring that should suit all tent inner living spaces as well.
Pros & Cons
- Soft and comfortable to walk on
- Large size, great for awnings
- Provides good insulation
- Easy to fold away
- Breathable fabric
- Rot proof
- Designed to fit Kampa Rally specific awnings as well
- A little pricey
- Not waterproof
Conclusion & where to buy
The Kampas Continental Carpet is designed with certain Kampas awnings in mind, you will need to have a large family tent with an inner living space to make this fit, or you could just fold it up to the size required to make it fit. Check the measurements to see whether it will fit your awning, you will find it comfortable under foot which is really nice when you have your footwear off and are just wearing socks or slippers.
It has loops in the corners to fit to the poles of the tent or awning you will be putting it in, but there is a bit of weight to the carpet which means that compared to others it shouldn’t be moving around when people walk in and out of the area it is laid down in.
We would actually recommend this for the inner of a large family tent than an awning because it is hard wearing, so will take a lot of foot traffic and because it isn’t waterproof. And with the inside of a tent, you won’t have to worry about that problem, which makes it perfect.
