The Vango Illusion 800xl Airbeam Tent has been updated for 2017. The Illusion 800xl has the same 420 double ripstop polyester fabric as before which is about as good as it gets when it comes to polyester tents. New features for 2017 on the Vango Illusion are roof sky lights, these allow light into the tent even when the main windows are covered with the zipped curtains, saying that you can cover the sky lights in the main living area with the zipped curtain if you wish. The lower ground vents along the side of the tent are larger for 2017 to help air flow, always keep these vents open as they also help to cut down on condensation. The New sky track is a system that runs the length of the Airbeams which allow accessories to be hung from the Airbeams such as lights etc. The optional zip on sun canopy or front awnings are now fully zipped on from floor to floor all the way around the front of the tent.


The layout fot the Vango Illusion 800xl tent is superb for most families, the bedrooms will all fit most double airbeds and double self inflating mats and have varible options due to the zipped dividing curtain in the four berth inner. The 2 berth inner tent within the middle living area can be used or taken down as required.

We love the design of the Illusion 800xl tent with the main bedrooms at the rear of the tent, then the middle living area with a fully sewn in groundsheet and two side doors, both with the option of just using the mesh covers and then leaving this area through the dividing door (which can be rolled back) into the attached front awning/porch area. The front awning area has no built in groundsheet but the optional footprint has a grounsheet for this area.

Also you can purchase optional accessories such as the zip on awning or zip on sun canopy to enhance the living space even further.
