New tent bought for next season.

Post by africajim » Sun Feb 02, 2014 9:31 pm

Had a run up to Inverness today to Go Outdoors to have a look at the Vango Omega 350. A new demo was up in the shop so had a good look round it, a good sized bedroom, plenty for two and all biker gear up either side, really big porch area, takes two sitting in seats comfortably, room to cook as well.
They had a sale on so reduced to £130, but there was one which was ex display for £90 so a bargain was had!
Honda, the power of dreams.

Good for you, I got the 2011 model, great little tents & go down quite small, I have found we can get my panniers & all riding gear in the vestable & have room to move around with out spilling in to the Sleeping area.

You can buy an Footprint for it, easier to make one your self tbh

Footprint is a great idea too, but cheap to make yourself. For any decent camping you need a tent this size.
1992 K100LT since June 2010 110,000 miles
1984 K100RT since July 2013 36,000 miles now going on 90,000 miles.
1997 K1100LT SE since Oct 2017 59,000 miles now 103,500 miles
1983 K100RS 29,000 since 2019 miles now 36,400 miles and parked in Spain.

Blinkin' 'eck, I too have, only last week purchased, a Vango 350 Omega, from GoOutdoors.

I'm now off into the conservatory to put mine up to scent mark it before the Dragon this coming weekend, just in case we all end up camping in the same vicinity...
