Vango Avington II 500

The Avington 500, 5-man tent is functional and stylish. It is a perfect choice for campers who want a tent that can sleep up to 5 people, has generous height and offers a covered outdoor space. The Powerflex® Fibreglass poles create a strong and reliable structure and the tough Sentinel Dura fabric keeps the elements on the outside. The fully sewn-in groundsheet keeps out draughts and bugs, and ventilation can be managed using the mesh doors. The large windows ensure the living space feels bright and airy. After a full day of adventures, enjoy a longer, more peaceful sleep in the darker Midnight inner tents, designed to reduce the morning light.
