 VANGO ROME AIR 550XL IS A BIG HIT WITH CAMPING MAGAZINE

A Great Use of Space for Families.

Vango Rome Air 550XL

When it comes to choosing a tent for long camping holidays, the amount of usable space it offers is up there alongside ease of pitching and the ability to keep the weather out in terms of importance.  The Villa Construction technique used in many of Vango’s inflatable tents, including the Rome, creates almost upright walls, which allows you to make the most of the floorspace and provides maximum headroom.

The Rome’s front porch is as big as the living room in many family tents and its own lounge area is more substantial than most.  The space is boosted with the side storage pod, a handy wing that can be used for tidying away kit, clothes or toys, and since it has a front curtain separating it from the rest of the tent, it could be used as a dressing room or bathroom compartment, with the addition of a portable loo.

Going back to the front porch, this is an extremely useful space that can be used as an additional living room or as a kitchen area.  The new full length windows stretch from the roof almost to the ground and let even more light flood into the area.  The front door is divided in two and each can be zipped opened separately and rolled up.  Inside the main room, there is excellent ground-level ventilation below the windows and a side door with a rain canopy.

KINGSIZE BEDROOMS

The King-sized bedrooms give each camper a generous 70cm of sleeping room and are in a 3+2 configuration with a toggled divider to create one large space.  The Midnight inners make the rooms look extremely dark to block out early morning sun.  You can also buy and additional double bedroom that can be fitted into the living area to increase the sleeping capacity if required.  The Rome is also fitted with SkyTrack II system which allows you to attach lighting or storage to the Airbeams and it comes with an expandable carry bag to make packing away easier.

OUR VERDICT

A Superb family tent with lots of usable space for living and storage as well as plenty of features to ensure a comfortable camping experience
