The Black Wolf Mojave HV6 tent is a classic single room dome tent with enclosed vestibule, which is ideal for family camping.
The Mojave is designed to increase interior space and offer plenty of headroom making it extremely liveable. The geodesic reinforced frame will keep your tent sturdy, even during a spot of windy weather. In warmer weather, the big No-See-Um mesh windows will keep the insects out, and provide cool air flow through the tent.
The added curtain sky panels allow you to gaze at the stars while you doze off, and the polyurethane coating on fly for added insulation and extra protection against wear and tear.
Ok I've owned a few tents over the years (including a camper trailer, RV5, full canvas family tents and a smaller Malamoo) and I would have to say these guys have thought of everything. From the increased spacing beteeen the zips (where the screen and door panels meet - avoids your zip getting caught) to all pockets. The poles appear to be of good quality and if you're planning to set up in sand or hard ground you will need to upgrade the guide rope pegs and some of the fly ones only. The fly took a few tries to get the orientation right but if you align the rectangle clear panel over the front room you shouldn't have a problem. It went up in 25min first time and down in under 20min - beats the camper trailer hands down. The poles we assembled at 2-3 sections at a time - this made things more manageable.
As far as room goes there is ample - I stand at 6.5" and had heaps of head room. The queen size air mattress fits with ease and a tonne of room for the dogs up front.
Materials - the floor has a decent bucket and appears to be made well. The fly is equally of a high quality.
We are looking forward to the first weekend away to give it a field test.
Great tent with plenty of room for two young kids and all that comes with camping with young kids. The only complaint would be the strength of the tent pegs as they bent out of shape easily in only moderately hard ground. Overall very happy.
Goes up very easily for a large tent, spacious with plenty of room to move. Big improvement on my previous tent which was also a Black Wolf which did good service for over 10 years. I reckon I will get at least that many out of this one as well.
After last tent became long overdue for replacement, we researched the Mojave HV6 and others simular and with the help of Snowys AWESOME team answering our book of questions, we settled and purchased. What a great choice! easy set up and packs down just as quick. Good ventilation in the heat of recent days. Fits a family of 5 with all clothing etc with ease.
I will suggest though investing in more "heavy duty" pegs; the ones supplied are way to weak - they didn't last more then 2 trips. the minimal extra weight would go unnoticed over the ease of pegging down in not so perfect grounds.
All in all very happy. Thanks Snowys as always.
First of all, Snowys provide great passionate service. This is a great versatile tent. We have used it when the nights are cold and the main bedroom is warmer with a mild insulating effect - surprising for a tent. We have used it when the weather was hot and opening up all the available openings really cools the tent down. With the pole going across the dome tent, it really creates spacious headroom with almost straight walls for a dome tent. Solo set up possible. Set up takes me half an hour by myself. Two people setting up is a lot easier for a dome tent this size. Handy versatility.
We love this tent. It's strong, spacious & well thought out. It withstood a storm that lasted all night (heavy rain, strong winds, lightning) & strong winds all weekend. Our family loved the video of it and we couldn't buy anything but Black Wolf after that - the other brands did not seem to compare as far as quality, usability, & handy features. It takes us about 30 mins to put up, we enjoy it as part of camping and don't trust pop-up styles. Expertise & advice from Ben was brilliant, thanks
Excellent tent, well made and very spacious.
Best bet is to have two people set it up(20-30min first setup) but once it's up its a pleasure to stay in.
Well ventilated and seems very strong.
We absolutely could not of been more stoked with our tent ! Everything from height, Windows everywhere, floor vents, options of three entries but stood up to a massive storm to perfection !!! Thanks to Mandy especially as bought this tent because of her fantastic video and instructions for setting up. We were in tent for four weeks but could of stayed a year :))
worried about our tent and gears in Geelong (wettest in 50years) while out for a drive in lashing down rain. Surprise it is bone dry even the floor.
Only takes about 20mins to set it up and take down. 2 adults and 2 kids with 2 double airbeds fit nicely. well worth it. fine and small package to make room in the motor.
We tested out our Mohave on the weekend for 2 nights. My wife, 16mth old son, 2 medium size dogs and myself comfortably fit in the tent with all of our gear. THere was still plenty of room to move around and stand up (I'm 180cm) to nearly full height in the main room. Airflow was great having the windows on ground level really helps circulate the air, quality of the tent was good and set up time was a hafl hr first go although this will decrease alot second time around. Great for the price!
Just bought this tent and wondering what lighting would be suitable for the inside of the tent (both rooms)
I'd say that if you'd like something that's going to hang at the central point of your tent then the Black Diamond Moji Lantern is a good choice as it's compact, lightweight and very reliable.
If you're after a model that can rest on the ground, and also hung around the campsite the Vanquish Push 450 LI Lantern from Coleman is a great option, as it uses a rechargeable lithium ion battery.
I am trying to compare the Mojave HV6 to Kathmandu's Retreat 280 5 person tent. Any thoughts?
We're not familiar with Katmandu's range as I think their tents are exclusive to their stores, but from comparing the specs of the two - here are my thoughts.
Both tents are a similar size, have a geodesic style frame, a breathable inner, and a high head height - so they are similar in some ways.
As far as we know Katmandu make good quality products, and the Retreat 280 Tent seems to have some interesting modern features that might be suited to your style of camping.
We have had excellent feedback over the years from the Mojave range from Black Wolf, generally what people love about it is that it's roomy, comfortable and reliable - I'm not sure of how long they have been making the Retreat 280, but what I can say is that the Mojave HV6 is a classic style that gets a great response from our other customers.
If not - can you purchase awnings separately that connect to this tent?
Hi Nikki. Unfortunately the door flap can not be used as an awning. An option could be an Oztrail Compact Deluxe Gazebo which you could errect out the front of the tent to create a protected area.
We've just found out that the Mojave HV6 does actually include eyelets and awning poles (as does the Mojave HV6), so I do apologise that we got our wires crossed there. I hope we haven't caused any inconvenience, please let us know if you have any more questions about the Black Wolf dome tent range.
Hi - I would like to know if you could fit 2 Coleman Dura Sleep XL Single Airbeds (#44789) in the front vestibule.
G’day Andrew, if you’re looking to put two beds in the vestibule I’m probably safe assuming that you want to use it as a sleeping area. In general we don’t recommend doing this, as while the vestibule is waterproof it is part of the fly which doesn’t have the same protection and insulation as the main body of the tent. The Mojave HV6 has a sloped vestibule that tapers off to the entrance, which means you could probably fit one single mattress closer to the tent, but the other one would be a struggle due to the slope of the roof.
Hi. If raining does the tent provide some protection when exiting from the side doors, or would rain enter the tent? From pictures the side doors look to curve up towards roof - so unclear if much protection would be afforded. Thanks.
I have read reviews which constantly talk about how the posts break readily. Has this been rectified? Also how does this tent differ from the " tuff dome plus"? Thanks
Hi After a tent for the Nullarbor. Hot, windy, cool in Winter. Need sleeping for two adults and need area for gear storage, etc. Happy to spend the extra dollar on the Black Wolf but is it better than the new Zempire Neo6? Have concerns on back up of Black Wolf.
It's me again :) So I've been looking around and I came across the Coleman - Instant Gold Cabin - it has great reviews. It is still slightly smaller than this tent. I know it has an easy set up though. Which would you say? I'm leaning towards the Mojave for stability and quality. Cheers, Ali.
I am after comfortable for family of 5 (3 little ones), sturdy, UV/Water resistance. Cheers, Ali.
We have 2 double xped camp mattresses for us and our kids and we are wondering if we would fit them side by side in the main room
Just wondering how big the tent is when packed down. We have a smallish car.
