Karsten Opera Blueline

Karsten Quality - Ultimate Performance 

from £2665.00

Environmentally manufactured 

using recycled materials

We’ve seen it, played with it and fallen in love with it.

Highly commended in the 2021 Camping Magazine Editors Choice Awards for Best Luxury Tent.

The Karsten Opera Blueline is the latest model of tunnel tent from the Dutch manufacturer and it doesn’t disappoint.

Made from Tencate Bluecamp Cotton, this tent comes in at a total weight of 30kg which is separated into three bags for easy handling and packing. The sewn in bisynol heavy-duty groundsheet helps this tent pitch as one, and with the four easy assemble poles that simply zip into outer sleeves, this tent is rock solid and pitched within 15 minutes.

The Opera is a luxurious ‘couples’ tent, and will comfortably sleep three. The full height living area throughout and large windows makes this tent feel light, airy and very spacious. There is a half moon vent to the rear of tent allowing for a great air movement. This coupled with the superior cotton canvas material virtually eliminates condensation and feels so cosy.

The single entrance door has a dual zip, the first we have seen from Karsten, allowing the canvas door to be zipped completely shut or if rolled-up allowing an integral mosquito net (screen door) to be zipped down, ensuring  bugs are kept out.

The doorway also benefits from a height adjustable modification to the groundsheet. In its up position the bathtub is retained, but releasing the clips allows this section to ‘lay-flat’ allowing easier access for prams and wheelchairs.

The curvaceous detachable awning just refines this tunnel tent as well as providing great shade and shelter from the elements.

There are nice touches throughout this tent, from the cable tidies to the dual electrical inlets. Dividers separate the sleeping area, and can be tied back for a bedouin effect during the day.
