All i need now is some SUNSHINE!!!!!!!!!!

after a rather cheeky and somewhat tongue in cheek Email to Vango a few weeks ago a very good guy at AMG17 (17 you know who you are 17) has given me the loan of an Eternity 600 and front canopy171717 

it arrived today. just got back from pitching it and boy its beautifull 171717

and crikey with the front extension its big!!!!!!

Now my mission to convice her indoors that this is the tent for us really starts 17

i would of posted lots of lovely photos but the flippin batteries in the camera were dead17

was a breeze to pitch so hopefully will post lots of piccs this weekend1717

so for now all thats left to say is 1717171717171717171717

Great to hear people using the Eternity 600 - we still haven't had the chance to put ours up yet.

Looking forward to seeing lots of pics and perhaps a review?

All the best

So ok guess its time for a bit of an update on our Airdream...

as i said previously after a cheeky email to vango they offered to lend us an Eternity 600 and front canopy it arrived last thursday and like an excited little boy i booked two nights at 3 rivers Clitheroe for the friday and saturday.

We arrived and i managed to solo pitch the main tent in under ten minutes, just in time as the heavens opened and blimey did it chuck it down.... the canopy took a little longer to put up partly due to the stinging rain and partly getting the positioning right.

the torrential downpour carried on for a good hour or so, but just as the first thoughts of calling the weekend a washout crept into my mind the rain stopped. 17

sat inside the tent listening to the rain bounce off the flysheet was fantastic ive got to say.... not a single leak, the inside of the flysheet has quite a dry waxy appearence to it and this gave me a good sense of confidence in the tent.

We woke saturday to a nice sunny morning fantastic, had a cracking day out in Skipton and returned to the tent early evening, had a great night sat in the canopy with a couple of beers watching the world go by17

Sunday morning and again nice and dry with a little sunshine and a trip to the car boot at clitheroe auction mart.

Packing up was fantasticly quick just unscrew the valves and down it went.... fitted back in the bag quite easilly aswell 17

All in all a cracking weekend....

going away with the Eternity on friday so will report back on our holiday when we get back with lots of sunny Airbeam photos1717

Been given the option to buy the tent off Vango, its one they lend out to journalists and use at trade shows, looks in really good condition though so could well be tempted 17

for now though a couple of photos of the Eternity and canopy just before deflating....

I got a reasonable deal from Bristol Camping, so it would be worth checking in with them.

Thanks

What PSI is everyone pumping there Eternity 600 up to?

The tent instructions says 3 PSI with a max of 4 PSI. However the new updated instructions on the vango site say 7 PSI should be used.

Hi all.

Well this is a long thread! I have read most of it.

I wonder if someone could clarify a few things for me please. Are the latest 2012 batch of Vango Eternity tents okay?

Meaning...
Is the stitching problem sorted?
Is the water at the base of the poles sorted?

If so, only problem might be availability.

Many thanks,
Andy

Also wanted to say that we purchased earlier on in the year a Calisto 600 and we have used it twice for short trips and we really like it.

Unfortunately we have had a few issues with it which I have contacted Vango about, if I decide to upgrade to an Eternity it will depend party on what their response is to these issues.

Hi

I have just come back and used the eternity, if the pressure valve is not working keep pumping until it starts to get hard to pump, feel the tube and give it a hard squeeze, it should feel pretty hard. How long are you away for, contact your retailer and they will be able to get Vango to send you a new valve within a day or two.

Gary
