VANGO PADSTOW 500
The Vango Padstow 500 is a five berth tunnel tent which is part of the Vango 2018 Family Exceed tent range. It is similar to the Vango Dunkeld 500 but the Padstow 500 has a fully sewn in groundsheet. It will sleep five but we feel that it’s the perfect size for couples.
The Padstow 500 only has four poles and when it is fully pitched it measures 4.55m x 3.2m. This tent can be fully pitched in under 15 minutes making it perfect for weekends away.
The Padstow 500 tent has a 70 denier polyester canvas. It has a 4000mm hydrostatic head, that’s the measure of waterproofness. The seams are fully taped to stop the rain getting in, making it completely waterproof.
Access to the tent is through the large u-shaped door which zips all the way around. Inside the tent you have a living area that measures 1.5m x 3m, giving you space for your camping gear. There is plenty of light due to the large crystal clear window on one side of the living area and at the front of the tent.
The Padstow 500 has a large poled sun canopy at the front that protects the door from rain and also provides a perfect area to sit under in the evenings.
The Vango Padstow 500 has one large inner tent that has a curtain divider to create a two and a three-person bedroom. There is plenty of headroom within the inner tents so it’s possible to get dressed inside. The bedrooms also have the lights out inners which mean they are darker to filter out the early morning sunshine.
