We purchased this tent about 5 years ago, and it has been used for 4 summer holidays and a long weekend in the UK. The pictures shown are from when we were in the Dordogne last summer. Its in great condition, well looked after, and always carefully packed away, so there are no issues with damp, mould etc. There is no damage, all zips work perfectly, all guy ropes - there are spares in with the pegs too. It has a fully sewn in groundsheet, which keeps everything clean inside, and a minimum amount of insects etc......easy to pitch, everything is colour coded, and with 2 / 3 people it takes around 30 minutes to put up. Instructions are sewn into the bag.
Photos showing it packed. with the poles and pegs separated. The pegs are brand new, never used...we have camped for years and have a big bag of old pegs, so the ones that came with the tent have never been in the ground. The bag of poles are outside the main storage bag, because we have never attempted to roll the tent tight enough to be able to get the poles in too.
The other photos show the tent erected from a couple of angles. We did not have the guy ropes pegged out, as we were in such a sheltered campsite, there was never any need to.
I have more photos I can send on request.
A very roomy tent with plenty of headroom inside. Even if you are 6ft+ there is room enough to stand up.
There are 3 dedicated sleeping pods in the tent, which is perfect for a family. Mum & dad in one and a bedroom each for 2 kids, although this can easily sleep up to 8 people if you double up each pod, and use the main living area too.
One of the sleeping pods can be unzipped to the outside, giving an extra entrance or some airflow through. Numerous windows and air vents give plenty of light and airflow. Storage pockets in the walls of the tent. Lantern hook,
and cable entry hole for electricity hook up.
Also included in the price are the Footprint groundsheet, which is essential for keeping the main tent groundsheet clean. The one supplied will be dry but quite dirty - its the thing that gets a bit muddy everytime you camp, and it pointless cleaning it up fully.
Also included in the price, the dedicated Kasari 800 internal carpet, Grey colour, in good condition, which makes the living area much more comfortable. You can't buy these from Vango any longer, and they are very sought after in their own right
Also included in the price, the Kasari Front Canopy, which you can see in the pictures. This extends the entrance to the tent quite considerably, and gives space to put a kitchen etc, and an extended area to keep dirty shoes, wet clothes etc, which helps keep the main tent cleaner and tidier. Again, you can't buy this canopy from Vango any longer, and they are very sought after...its in great condition too, comes with the original groundsheet, which is in perfect condition - we never used it, as we had another groundsheet we used to cover the area...and the pegs are also unused in their original bag.
Lightweight fibreglass poles, which are colour coded for easier pitching
4000HH tent material with 10000HH groundsheet
Weight approx 30kg, which is a lot lighter than many family tents of this size
Vango pitching time estimate of 35 minutes
Why are we selling ?? Our daughters are a bit older now, one off to Uni after the summer, and we no longer need a tent this size...so we are selling this and we are going to buy a smaller tent that my wife and I can use for just two of us, and if our other daughter still wants to come in the future, with a friend, we also have a little 2 man pop up. This tent will be great for a young family - we've been camping for years, and know how to look after them, this is a great chance to get a tent thats been really well kept and will do for years to come.
Due to the weight, this tent is pick up only. We are located in Hornchurch / Romford, Essex
