After buying the Eden 600XL, we put the tent up before going away as we wanted to be sure in our minds how this thing went up. Great decision as it's not getting the tent up - it's trying to pack the thing away! This tent is HEAVY, we couldn't get it back into the bag. Not to mention the amount of space it takes up in the boot of the car (we have an estate) After phoning the company who sold it to us at the Camping and Caravan show we were advised to use the poles as a guide to roll up to the width of the poles. Thankfully this worked. Nothing else was going into the bag though - i.E. Pump and pegs. At Easter we pitched up at Pentewan Sands and the tent went up fine, we were very lucky with the weather until the Sunday when we had heavy wind and rain. The tent did leak on the seams of the windows which made the curtains really wet. (Not sure if this was our fault as we didn't weather the tent before hand, as we were told we didn't need to? But after the phone call we were told we should have?) The beams started to buckle with the weight, but again not sure if it was us as we have no real experience with such a big tent and air beams?
Other than that it's a lovely tent, very spacious, fantastic sleeping compartments which stay dark in the morning and a gorgeous amount of windows which you can control the amount of privacy you desire and we had many admirers.
Luckily the day we left was dry and the tent had chance to dry out. I have to say though it would fill me with dread trying to put this tent away if it was wet - I really don't know if we could do it.

Well just done our first pitch and weathered the Eden and wow what a tent quality is amazing
Pretty standard to erect the tent as we've owned a couple of airbeams
Yes this tent is heavy and there's no way around it be prepared to do some lifting so park as close as you can to your pitch
But it's worth it
This is our first polycotton tent and you can really feel the difference when inside
The sound and the overall feel really explains why this tent commands the price tag
Will edit this review once we have really used this great tent
Well done Vango

Beautifully made tent. Sales teams rarely cover the weight of the tent. This weighs at least the claimed weight. When wet will be considerably more. Two people needed to move the thing around when packed. Not for anyone with a bad back! Difficult to lift to a height eg roof rack. More to follow to once we've experienced the tent in wind and rain etc.

Well having received our Eden 600XL on Friday after seeing it at the camping and caravan show, we gave it a run out this weekend.
Quality - Excellent, good materials and nice touches inside with various pockets and storage compartments. Very sturdy peg loops and pegs.
Construction - Easy once you have done it and familiarized yourself with the layout. Important!- make sure the Airbeams are fixed to the velcro pads on the base of the tent before inflation, otherwise the tent will not properly support itself. And this tent is HEAVY!
Packing away - Absolute nightmare first time around, getting it back in the bag is a no go, we have almost managed it but without the canopy poles and peg bag, the difficulty lies in the weight of the tent, no clear guidance on folding etc. TAKE NOTE of how it unfolds when you take it out for the first time.
An interesting flattening technique is lying on the floor then rolling down the tent. We were desperate and surprisingly it worked!
Overall - amazing space, great looks, easy to put up. But very very heavy - do not underestimate the 67KG this tent weighs.
Consider a bigger bag!
Oh . And make sure your garden is big enough so you can put it up if it ever needs drying out after your break.It's rather large!

When it comes to luxury, you donít get much better than the Eden. A rich Polycotton fabric in a beautiful nutmeg colour provides a sumptuous space to enjoy your holiday. Polycotton breathes, as well as being water resistant, so no more build up of condensation. The huge Vista front on the Eden creates a bright and airy living area that leads out to the large sun canopy which provides shade in the sun, shelter in the rain and a relaxing space to enjoy the outdoors whatever the weather. New for 2014, the Eden is the epitome of luxury camping
