“We purchased our Diablo 900 2nd hand after a one user...”

Written on: 26/04/2011

We purchased our Diablo 900 2nd hand after a one user 2 years ago. Stupidly we watched the DVD instructions and figured we would be fine. DO NO MAKE THIS MISTAKE!!!! Have a practice first in a BIG back garden. My wife and I can now throw it up in about 25 mins, but it isn`t the easiest tent to errect. One tip if you have the 2 door version is to get the porch door where you want it before pegging down. Once up it is awesome and the interior space is great especially in wet weather.

Hi I have used the xp 400 for a number of years. Is it quality? 100% yes.
Has it ever leaked? not ever and I camp march to october. It is spacious,durable when in use BUT and its a big BUT. It is about as difficult to errect as anything I have ever used.The problem is the sleves that the poles go through. The poles snag and snag they are just too long and by the time you have 4 poles and you are putting in the 5th.You are bending and straining the materials.we habve ued this tent 5 to 7 times a… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/09/2010

Took this tent all the way to Aus after owning and camping in it 4 or 5 times in the UK, in a weekend of strong winds and rain 2 of the poles snapped and ripped through both the inner pole sheath (needed for the stability/rigidity of the tent) and then also wore through the outer. The poles need vastly improving, possibly durawrap, but this could make them too heavy. A shame as we love the tent to bits due to its size. Some uk sites won't accept it due to its footprint size… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/07/2010

The Diablo 900 is an awesome tent. Huge space and will keep you dry no matter what the weather. Ours has been battered by winds and rain when other tents literally blew away. It is great for longer trips. Tricky to put up in heavy wind but if you have three people(2 adults and a child) you will manage it. Great comfort and its worth the extra for the extension canopy over the doorway which is a great place to house the cooker giving even more space to the impressive interior. The pods are airy… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/06/2010

This is our 5th year using this tent for 2-3 week holidays and on short breaks. It has been baked in Spain and battered in 50mph winds in Dorset and is still in good condition. Once familiar with the process it can be erected by an adult and older child, even the 900! The inside space is invaluable non rainy days and for longer holidays there is ample storage space for a family of 5. Excellent value for money… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/05/2010

this is a spacious tent that accomodated 12-15people in the communal area on rainy days. For it's size it packs quite small compared to others. I'm not a fan of inner tent first erection but i knew that before i bought. you'll need at least three people on a windy day to get the shell over the inner tent but i reckon that's the case with any other large tent. Definately recommend it, if it's still on the market… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/08/2009

We bought our Vango Diablo 600 almost 4 years ago, and have used it about 10 times. I must agree it is one of the hardest tents to erect despite doing so by the two of us.

The positive side to it thought is, it's quite roomy, fantastic entrance which we use as our kitchen area, ideal if you have young children in terms of the space/safety it offers.

The negative sides are, the poles do not last as long - ie, splits, crack, bends. The pole sleeves are not of a toughened/durable material… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/06/2009 by trewhi (1 review written)

We have had a Vango Diablo 600 for over 5 years. Adolescent daughter and pubescent son mean that we are having to upgrade to a 900! Otherwise we would never have changed it. I spend a lot of time on campsites as a DofE Award leader and I have yet to see a tent that I would swap for the Vango Diablo.
Excellent in poor weather (Dumfries & Gales away!). As a family of four on holiday we are usually joined by elderly relations during the day and even in inclement weather we are easily and… Read Full Review

We have the Vango Diablo 900 XP - fantastic tent, plenty of room, reasonably easy to put. have used it about 3 times now. However, find it difficult to pack the tent away in the wheel case that it came in - especially the inner tent that goes in the top part of the case - why couldnt they make the bottom and top of the case the same size ??? Struggled to put the ground sheet in the porch part to get it to fit nicely. Any idea's would be appreciated… Read Full Review

Super for four, ideal for six, comfortable for 8.
