Vango Carron 500

The Vango Carron 500, 5-man tent is a tall three-poled dome tent. With an internal height of 185cm, it's easy to stand up and move about to get ready for the day's adventures. This tent features a good size porch for storing kit. The porch has a linked in groundsheet which can be detached when not required. The dark Nightfall bedrooms reduce the morning light so that you can sleep longer on light summer mornings. A great choice for a small family tent, as well as weekend camping adventures and festivals.
