An inflatable tent

Postby padfoot » Tue Mar 15, 2011 1:00 pm

While looking for a light weight tent I came across a UK maker of camping equipment.

http://www.vango.co.uk/vango-airbeam-tent.html

Now far be it from me to be sceptical about someone's invention but I can't see how it could stand up in a strong breeze. Vango are fairly well known (in the UK) so I am interested as to how this works.
I am also inherently lazy so anything that makes putting up the tent easier is a winner in my books. Definatley a 12v job though. Non of those manual pumps for me.

Hmmmm.....pretty skeptical here too....would like to see it in action in a real situation, not on the showroom floor.

Looks good. It'd be ok unless it got a puncture and you'd wake up with a deflated tent.

12v pumps annoy fellow campers at 2am :booty
