Agreed, it's not winter yet.
This has great poTENTial..
Shame that the reviews aren't great for longetivity
I personally prefer the vango poled tents than airbeam them move a lot more in the wind, the 8 man poled one is also down to £309.60

A real bargain. I wish I had waited a year or two before buying mine. It was hard to get much of a discount when it was still a fairly new idea. Argument free camping.

I commend you for having such a fantastic relationship with your partner. Please remember most of us are not so fortunate and for us, poles bring on a lot of ill will and rows.
The Air Beam tents are amazing. I borrowed a friends 8 man version of this tent and managed to put it up on my own within 15 minutes, an absolute doddle. I have a poled 6 man Vango tent and that can be a pain in the backside to put up in comparison and can take at least double that.

I have an Outwell Montana 6P tent which is amazing. We used it for a 2 week holiday in France last year and loved it.

Earlier this year we took it to a site in UK for a 2 night stay. again it is a great tent and we had a great time. However it is a real pain to put up / take down, which started to put us off going away for shorter trips.

I bough the Vango Odyssey Air Beam (6 man) shortly after this. It is so much quicker and easier to put up / take down. I can do it on my own and leave the other half to take the kids away to explore so I can set up stress free!

It is not the same quality as the Outwell, but there is a huge price difference, I will continue to use that for longer trips. However it is an excellent tent for short weekend trips away. We have used it for 3 weekends away since getting it about 6 weeks ago. There is also no reason why you could use it as a main tent for a longer trip too though!
I've got the slightly older model of this tent - it has the front canopy but doesn't have a blackout sleeping section. I paid £250 in a Black Friday deal a couple of years ago (from Blacks).

I'm definitely no hardcore camper but these airbeam tents are very simple to put up and take down. The more tricky part is getting it back into the storage bag but once you use the deflate option on the pump and you suck out ALL the air it goes back into the bag easily.
Do these (especially the 600) come with the pump?

Also even dafter question - with pegs and guy ropes?
Cheers.

D'oh, just scrolled down the amazon listing. All included.

Just what I was looking for at a bargain price, thanks heat added 😊
Does the six man version have a sewn in ground sheet? This looks like the perfect weekend tent to ease pitching stress.

The bedroom does.

The front bit unfortunately not. It just attaches at the corners

Thanks good to know
Do theses tents withstand strong winds well? I went on a trip a wile back where the wind was actually pushing the tent onto us.. and ripped the pole off the hooks.. I figure this tent would be better as there would be no chance of poles breaking or ripping off the hooks as the inflatable parts are actually in a sleeve right? Trying to make my mind up whether to get this or get a poled alternative..

its the summer of discount tent
been looking for something to replace my old £30 woolworths closing special 6 man, ordered this to try it camping at indietracks in ripley this weekend
ok, got to test out the 6-man one at the weekend, i loved it!
the bedroom was big enough for my massive triple height kingsize airbed, albeit having to position is sideways rather than normal. only issue with this was the person sleeping nearest the back of the tent is really close to touching the side (potentially letting water in) - i was camped alone this time though, so didnt have any issues.

putting the tent up was *ridiculously* easy. on my own, i put it up in 7 minutes. most of that was trying to get the pegs into ground full of stones a few inches below the surface.

taking it down, even moreso. just press the valve, then attach the pump in deflate mode and suck the last bit of air out. it went from fully standing to bundled up in the boot of my car (it was wet, so didnt pack it in its bag until i got it home to dry it out) in a fraction under 5 minutes!

porch-wise, we got 7 adults in camping chairs with a fairly large folding table in the porch comfortably while it was raining
i absolutely love this tent, and kinda wish i'd bought one a few years ago instead of going through the hassle of putting up my increasingly saggy pole tent. might even have to try and get in a cheeky camping weekend away before the end of the summer
