The Vango Castlewood 800XL Poled Tent offers a camping experience like no other. Designed with precision and equipped with a host of practical features, this spacious 8-person tent ensures a comfortable and enjoyable family camping holiday.
Spacious and Private Layout: The Castlewood 800XL boasts a vis-a-vis layout, with two separate bedrooms at opposite ends of the tent, each accommodating up to 4 people. This innovative design provides greater privacy compared to traditional tents, making it perfect for families or couples seeking their own sleeping areas while enjoying a generous living space in the middle.
Light-Filled Living Area: The central living space is bright and airy, thanks to large diamond-clear windows that allow natural light to flood in during the day. At night, you can maintain your privacy with the roll-away toggled curtains.
Quality Construction: Made from Vango's Excellent Sentinel Fabric, the Castlewood 800XL maintains a compact pack size and low weight while delivering exceptional durability. This fabric is not only robust but also waterproof to a 3,000mm HH rating, providing peace of mind in various weather conditions.
Practical Features: This tent is thoughtfully designed for your convenience. It features lantern hanging points to illuminate your evenings, and the easy-pack carry bag is oversized for added convenience. Toggled privacy curtains give you the flexibility to choose your level of privacy. Furthermore, it's fire retardant, meeting European EN5912 safety standards.
Comfort and Security: The Castlewood 800XL is equipped with fully sewn-in groundsheet for a bug and draught-free environment, fully taped seams for a watertight seal, and an adjustable pegging system that ensures a perfect pitch even on uneven terrain.
Stability in All Conditions: The TBS®II Tension Band System provides extra stability, especially in changing winds. It braces the tent poles at three points, reducing lateral movement. Additionally, the pre-angled poles create more internal space and effectively brace against strong winds.
Additional Privacy and Convenience: The Castlewood 800XL offers mirrored bedroom layouts for added privacy, drop-down door steps for easy access, and king pole compatibility to create a sun-canopy (optional extra). The toggled inner divider allows flexible sleeping arrangements and clear access bedrooms provide easier entry.
Ventilation and Climate Control: Stay comfortable with the Vango AirZone ventilation system, which ensures a healthy flow of air throughout the tent, reducing condensation. Adjustable rear ventilation and high/low-level ventilation panels contribute to a comfortable camping experience.
Protect Your Investment: With an included groundsheet protector, your groundsheet and tent's lifespan are extended, providing extra value and peace of mind.
