Whilst never have been a fan of Vango, this tent really changed my mind.
Camping in Devon last August we had terrible weather and had to buy a replacement tent fast. This was on sale in Blacks and I reluctantly baught it.
Pretty quick and easy to pitch. Survived th horrendous weather with not problems.
The only problem was the 'brow pole' which was included in the packing list but not the instructions. Tried seversal shops, n-one knew whatg it was. Eventually Vango customer services… Read Full Review

This Vango Solero is a great tent! Can be erected very quickly, can be, but took my time and when others were leaving the site due to bad weather we enjoyed a dry and robust tent.

Vango Solero 500
Great tent! Surprisingly easy to erect, used in terrible weather and it was both waterproof and fine in the wind. Fared much better than our other tent did!
Good value for money, easy to transport.
5 berth but we used it for one adult and two teenagers and it was just right, not sure how 5 would get on in it (they'd have to be VERY good friends!)
Two doors, 'curtained' window, plenty of air vents.
'Room' separator flimsy and son #2 kept rolling under it during the night… Read Full Review

The Vango Solero 500 is a useless tent - no structural integrity, collapses if strong winds hit it side on (unlike every other family tent on the very packed campsite we were on). Shoddy workmanship too - 2 rings came away after one night. AVOID like the plague unless you enjoy making a run for your car at 2 in the morning… Read Full Review
