The new Vango Lumen V 500 is one of the largest AirBeam tents in the range this season. The styling, particularly the integrated front canopy, is taken from some of the popular tents that are seen in the Netherlands.
The Vango Lumen V 500 will sleep 5 people in comfort. There's a single bedroom inner sleeping five people with a divider curtain to split it into a 3+2. The inner is made with highly breathable polyester with the darkened 'Lights Out' fabric to filter out early morning daylight.
The living space of the Lumen V 500 is generous 380x285cm providing plenty of space to establish a dining area, arrange your camping furniture and for gear storage. The tent has a fully sewn-in 300D Oxford polyester groundsheet throughout which prevents draughts, moisture ingress and insect invasion.
The Vango Lumen V 500 features two doors - a roll-back side 'D' door and a large roll-up front door. Both of these doors feature mesh double doors to aid air circulation while keeping insects on the outside.
The 'V' in the title of this tent refers to the Vista front - this is a large hex-shaped front with panoramic windows that let in plenty of daylight and allow great views out. All windows have zip-down curtains so you can regulate the amount of daylight/privacy levels you want.
The striking integral front canopy provides an excellent area for you to sit under and relax on warm days but will also protect the front entrance on rainy days. In stormy weather the canopy can simply be taken down, rolled-up and toggled to the main tent to avoid damage.
During inclement weather, the Vango Lumen V 500 has the unique internal TBS (Tension Band System) for you to deploy. This is a series of webbing straps that can be tightened inside the tent to tension the whole structure.
Vango AirBeam tents are quick and easy to pitch - simply peg out each corner of the tent in place and then inflate the AirBeam inflatable inner tubes with the Vango AirBeam pump (supplied) and the tent effectively pitches itself. Then simply peg out the guys and you are ready to go. Everything is pre-attached, the AirBeam tubes, groundsheet and flysheet and so there's no preparation or assembly required.
For those who would like even more space at their disposal you can add the Vango Exclusive Side Awning to this tent which is available as an optional extra. In addition there's also a footprint groundsheet and internal tent carpet available.
