3 Reviews of the Eden V 500 Polycotton Airbeam

By: Viamanga  Reason: I own(ed) one  Made in: 2014   Rating: 

I would mirror all of Sparklies comments, and add that it is very very easy to put up - 20-30 mins by one person (even though it is pretty heavy).

We have also had minor issues with the finish, inc. A missing velcro fastener for the door (!), and threads.

However, our biggest issue is with the bag. Ours ripped at the bottom wheeling it on pavement to the car from the shop (the weight of the tent just splayed the wheels). And the seams are now coming apart (despite buying in July '14 and having only used it once!).

We contacted Vango twice in July and eventually they said they would replace the bag and send Velcro. They have done neither, despite me chasing again and again. Their customer service is truly awful and totally unacceptable in this day and age. They make it extremely difficult to find their customer services number (which costs money to phone!), and seem happy to just ignore their customers.

So whilst it is a great tent you're on your own if it goes wrong (and it's not like you can buy a replacement bag of that size) - hence the low score.

I now wish we had bought the Outwell tent we were comparing with - so much for buying British!

Overall a great tent. A few niggles that could have been sorted by Vango prior to release.

1 way zips are a pain. No method of securing the pump nozzle while inflating makes it a 2 person exercise which is a shame, as a screw thread that matched the valve would sort this. The end tape guy ropes only take the provided pegs so you can't use sand pegs without using some cord to attach them.

Fitting the tent back into the bag is a challenge but we have it sorted after the second trip.

The other downsides are expected in my opinion.The weight and bulk, but they don't detract from the overall package.

Only used it the once so far, but what a lovely tent! Really does feel luxurious with the polycotton.

It's a five berth tent but it is a similar width to the Outwell Harrier XL which claims to be six berth. There are six of us (four children, oldest is seven) and it fitted us all in comfortably in the bedrooms. Admittedly children take up less space and you'd have to be quite, uh, close to have six adults in there, but as a family tent for six it seems absolutely fine for many years yet for us.

The front awning is very useful to store things under to help protect them from rain a little, and there's excellent light inside too from the big front windows.

First night it rained heavily and there was not a single leak.

The downsides:

Ours wasn't 'finished' properly (Vango has issued a recall on the 600 I believe) and we had quite a few dangling threads inside but these are purely cosmetic.

It would have been nice to have had a window door instead of a solid door at the side.

The curtains at the sides are fine, but the ones covering the corners don't fit to the window and let in loads of light and people could peer in if nearby. Could be we're doing it wrong though!

Really difficult to fit back in the bag!

Aside from those niggles, it's a brilliant tent and those things have not put us off at all.
