Put the Vango Diablo up in a howling gale over Whit and tore the corner off one of the bedrooms. Anyone got any ideas on repairing it? The damaged section is part of the SIG, and would be tricky to sew since it would require one person inside and one outside. Even if sewing is the answer how do you seal it later?

We live in Ellesmere Port in Cheshire so if anyone can recommend a local company which repairs tents that might have to be the answer.

Over to you camping world.

You can't buy pods as the whole thing is one piece, however we rapaired our torn grounsheet with good old duck tape, put it on heat it up with a hair dryer and rest something heavy on it whilst it "sets".

this months "country walking" magazine is showing "stomsure"in its new gear section as ideal for fixing holes and tears etc there is not a field review of the product but blurb states it works on a variety of different materials it is 5.50 per tube and available fromhttp://www.stormsure.com tel 01638 570 478.if you do try this and it works as an overall sealent to re-attach your corner let us all know as there are a lot of vango owners(aspen 500)on ukcs as you know and it would be a priceless piece of kit in an emergency............hope this helps happy trails

also go to http://springfield-camping.co.uk as they do offer a repair service but i know that they can be expensive however all cost is relevant other option is if repair to close in cost to replace see if you can get  a used diablo 600 and just utilise inner and keep rest of poles and fly sheet/pegs for spares

Thanks for the replies.

I may have to go for a duck tape/sewing/seam sealant combined attack.

Hi, I had a damaged diablo 900 (eaten by mice in my garage over winter). I contacted Vango/AMG outdoor.co.uk and they basically replaced the whole damaged inner at NO COST!!! These guys have an absolutely excellent customer care and I totally recommend them, I am sure that they'll be able to sort out your problem for you.

their address is :

AMG Outdoor

Kelburn Business Park
Port Glasgow
Lanarkshire
PA14 6TD

http://www.amg-group.co.uk/vango/contact/contact.asp

Hope this helps you out

Lee
