4 Reviews of the Centara 800 Airbeam

By: Belfastjules  Reason: I own(ed) one  Made in: 2016   Rating:   Date: 12/03/2017

This was my 2nd Vango inflatable tent in the summer season 2016. My first purchase had airbeam issues from day one and had to be returned and refunded. In replacing it, I chose this one, slightly bigger than the previous 6 man one.

On erecting the tent on first use, one of the bedroom central peg straps came completely off, leaving us unable to secure one of the bedrooms properly to the ground. Result was water able to seep in under the bedroom between the footprint and groundsheet - as well as things just not being as 'tight' as they should be resulting in lots of flapping in the winds

Again, disappointingly, this wasn't fixable and this tent also had to be returned.

My dilemma remains whether to try for 3rd time lucky this year as I have the official footprint, carpet and matching porch now for a centara but wary of buying another. I always thought Vango was a good reliable make of tent but now am not so certain 😐

I wanted a tent to give my teenage daughter a bit of space away from her younger brothers. This tent has been excellent so easy to pitch by myself and I can pack it away and get it back into the bag by myself which is a bonus. Loads of living room space. Reason for 8/10 is same a a pervious review as only one door has the mesh fly screen, and it's a squeeze only just fits 3 single airbeds in the bedrooms. Overall I'm really happy with it, I recommend it to a family of 5.

We had to upgrade from a Vango Icarus 500 as its wasnt big enough for the 5 of us. This allows the kids to have one end and us the other end, with living space in between. Easy to pitch, we just pegged the corners and inflated the tent, and then put the rest of the pegs in after. I do miss the storage pockets on the front of the bedrooms.

Great tent in a style which allows some privacy and splitting for sleeping arrangements. Easy to pitch and spacious and airy inside. 9/10 because only one door has mesh, would have been great if both had it. Also, coming from a Kalahari 8, I miss the storage pockets on the front of the bedrooms. Great tent and would recommend.

Manufacturer's Description

For families with older children, a vis-a-vis tent design is a fantastic idea, since positioning the sleeping quarters at opposite ends of the tent allows the children some independence whilst granting the parents some well-earned peace and quiet. New for 2015, the Centara is the only traditional vis-a-vis model in the range, with five AirBeams using the new AirSpeed® valves and two huge 'Lights Out' inner tents at both ends ensuring that after a long day you can always rely on some privacy to relax and enjoy your evening.
