Product Information



The Vango Rivendale 800xl is a huge family tent which sleeps up to eight people comfortably.  It features Vango’s AirBeam technology for quick and easy pitching and a large living area space.



The Vango AirBeam Rivendale 800xl is one of our top picks for 2018. Why? It offers amazing value for money compared to other similar, tents on the market.  It's ideal for a family of up to 8 people as you get huge amounts of both living and sleeping space.  It features Vango’s Protex® 150D 5000HH polyester flysheet and a fantastic enclosed porch area.

The Vango Rivendale 800xl is part of the AirBeam Exclusive range.  It comes in Vango's sky blue colourway.  A great feature of the Rivendale 800xl is the large living area complimented by a built-in front awning which doubles up the space available to you.

All the tents in the Vango Exclusive range have a full AirBeam structure and pre-bent beams which give the whole tent a more spacious feel and gives it more head height.  Also, each of the doors built into the tent has a secondary mesh layer.


  • Double action air pump - unique to Vango quicker and easier to use.
  • 50% larger vents - enhance ventilation and significantly reduce condensation
  • Full zip awning - the awning is attached with a full zip to eliminate gaps
  • Side door - creating flexible entry from front or either side
  • SuperZips on flysheet doors - stronger, smoother and more durable
  • SkyLight windows - to increase the amount of daylight and for stargazing at night
  • Cable entry points - 3 zipped entry points for power cables
  • Bedroom low-level vents - enhances ventilation and helps decrease condensation
  • SkyTrack system - to attach lighting, tidy cables or even storage units

AirBeams - There are five Inflatable AirBeams which when erected measures 7.3m x 4.4m.  It feels even bigger due to its pre-bent AirBeams that give you full head height throughout the tent.  The beams are encased in two thick layers of protective casing to make them tough to puncture.

Canvas - The canvas is a high quality 150 denier breathable polyester.  The canvas has a hydrostatic head of 5000mm making it tough, waterproof and durable. 

The Rivendale 800xl features Vango TBS (Tension Band System).  The TBS acts as an internal guying system to prevent sideways movement of the tent in windy conditions.

Living area- The size of the living space on the Rivendale 800xl is impressive.

The front section of the living area on Rivendale 800xl is perfect for use as a cooking area or wet area.  The front section has a large barn door entrance that can be opened partially or rolled all the way back. 

The back section of the living area can have an inner tent attached to it to make it an 8 berth tent or you can unclip this lightweight inner during the day to use it as living space. 

The large windows help keep the living area bright but if you need some privacy you can zip up the curtains.  The Rivendale 800xl has vista front that gives fantastic panoramic views. The vista front allows plenty of light in to keep the living area naturally bright.

Bedrooms - The Rivendale 800xl will comfortably sleep eight adults in its three bedroom areas.  Each bedroom is designed to take a double airbed.  There is a large 4-berth inner at the rear of the tent with a zipped curtain divider (to create a 2+2).  The zip dividers which adds to the privacy.  Hung up alongside this is a separate 2-berth inner.  A 2 person inner tent can be hung up in the back section of the living area, this can be taken down during the day if needed. 

The inner tents are made of breathable polyester that have a ‘lights out’ filter to block the early morning sunlight.  The bedrooms have plenty of ventilation and also extra storage pockets at the bottom.  

A pelmet runs the full width of the tent to hide the inner tent attachment points and there is also extra storage space pockets attached.

Pitching - All Vango AirBeam tents are very simple to pitch – first, peg out the four corners of the tent and then inflate the AirBeams using pump supplied, we find pumping up the middle beam first and the tent pitches itself.  The Inner tents are pre-attached so once you have inflated all the beams you then simply peg out the rest of the tent and the guy lines.  From start to finish this tent can be erected in 10–12 minutes.
