3 Reviews of the Airbeam Flux 500

By: Paul+kate s-o-t  Reason: I own(ed) one  Made in: 2013   Rating:   Date: 07/10/2013

We owned our flux 500 for about 8 months and only sold her as we got a great deal on our eternity 600

This little airbeam is a fantastic little weekend tent and couldn't fault it in any way plenty of space in the bedroom pod for 2 adults and a daft Staffordshire bull terrier as in one of my photos

We had the 3 of us plus clothing holdall in the sleeping area and 2 camp chairs and fridge in the little porch.

Couldn't possibly see how it would cope with 4 people let alone the 5 people this tent is marketed for as being a 5 berth tent.

All in all a great tent would recommend it highly

My partner and I are seasoned campers and we absolutely love our Flux 500. We actually went looking for a smaller tent for just me and my partner to use but came across this Vango Airbeam Flux 500 at a discounted price and it was last years model. As I have 2 children who we were likely to take camping sometime soon we'd need something bigger eventually anyway, so we decided it was too good an offer to pass on and we got it.

We have used the tent twice so far this season and it goes up like a dream - we had it up in less than 5 minutes. And coming down is just as quick - we find rolling it twice means you can get it back in the bag no problem!

The first time we used it there was just myself and my partner so there was loads of room to spread out, but even the second time when there was us plus 3 kids under 13 we found it wasn't too cramped. We did only have the stuff we needed in the tent though and kept everything else in the car, which helped keep things in order.

The only thing we have thought of that would improve the Flux 500 was if they made an extension for it. While we were away with the children we were very lucky with the weather so we could sit out to cook/eat. Had this not been the case we would of struggled.

We are going to buy a Vango Family Shelter (even though it won't match our red tent) so that we can extend the porch area and have somewhere in the future to cook etc should the weather not be as desirable.

All in all though an excellent spacious tent without the faff (and arguments) that the larger poled tents can cause.

As a retired, overweight and fairly sedentary lady I was looking for a tent that I could manage by myself.

Plenty of space was important and good headroom, because at my age I'm not crawling around in something that is only waist height!

The tent goes up in no time. All that is needed is to peg out the four corners and then pump up the two beams. After that it is very easily finished by pegging around the sides and the guys.

I managed unaided in about 15 minutes.

Inside there is lots of room for a self inflating air bed along with the electric cool box and all the bits and pieces that an ex-motorhomer expects.

Packing the tent away is as simply as pitching it, the only problem being that it will never again pack neatly into it's bag, but I'm told that is normal for most tents. As I prefer to keep it spread out for airing anyway that doesn't matter to me.

A lot of other campers have asked about the possibility of a puncture, but so far it looks very unlikely. The whole thing is put together beautifully and although I am no expert I think that it is an excellent tent.
