VANGO AIRBEAM ILLUSION 800XL 2018
The Vango AirBeam Illusion 800xl features the fantastic Protex® 420 Double Ripstop 6000HH polyester material. It can sleep up to 8 people in its four bedrooms and has Vango's inflatable superbeams, making the Illusion 800xl one of the best family tents on the market. The enormous living room and built in front awning (which you can enclose) can easily accommodate a large family or group, giving you plenty of space for shelter, storage and dining.
The Illusion 800xl comes packed with Vango features including cable entry points, Sky Track system and Skylight windows.
All of the tents in the Vango AirBeam Elite range are supplied with a roller bag as standard. The bag is oversized which means you can fold up your tent and get it back in the bag easily. It has nice big wheels which make it easy to use on site.
The size of the beams for the Vango AirBeam Elite Range is 30% larger than on standard AirBeam tents. There are five Inflatable AirBeams in this family tent and when erected it measures 7.5m x 4.4m. The extra thick beams are pre-bent to give full head height throughout and they have two layers of protective casing to ensure they are incredibly hard to puncture.
The canvas is a high quality 420 denier ripstop polyester. It has a hydrostatic head of 6000mm, this makes it robust, waterproof and will last you many years. Every door built into the tent has a double layer so it's got the flysheet door as well as the secondary mesh door.
A zip runs across the front of the tent which enables you to attach an extra canopy or awning (optional extra).
The best feature of this tent is the flexible living area. When the middle wall is open the living area measures an impressive 5.3m x 4.4m. When the middle wall is closed it creates two separate areas for you to use. The front section is perfect for use as a cooking area or wet area but can also be used to sit out in. The back section of living area can have an inner tent attached to it to make it an 8 berth tent. This inner tent can be taken down during the day to use it as living space. You can also have the inner tent removed and roll the middle wall back to create a massive living area.
The front section of this area has a bathtub groundsheet and the back section has a sewn in groundsheet. The large crystal clear windows, with zip up curtains, keep the living area bright. Besides the main front door, this tent has an extra two side entrances, one of which has a small canopy. The Illusion 800 features Vango's new vista front. This gives you panoramic views and allows plenty of light in.
The Illusion 800XL will sleep eight adults in its three bedroom areas. It has a large 4-berth inner at the rear of the tent with a zipped curtain divide (to create a 2+2). There is a separate 2-berth inner that is alongside. There is an extra 2 person inner tent which can be hung in the back section of the living area.
All the bedrooms are made of breathable polyester which features a ‘lights out’ filter that block out sunlight.
Inside the bedroom areas, there is plenty of ventilation and also extra storage pockets. A pelmet runs along the outside of the main bedroom area to help hide the attachment points of the inner.
