Technical Help
What size bedroom do I need in a tent?

The size of bedroom you may need has many factors. Tent manufacturers show the size as a maximum amount of people and will not consider for any extra space you may need.


You need to consider the following.

  • How many people would you like to sleep, and in each bedroom.
  • The size of the Camp bed / bedding you are using [as these will take up more room]. To give a good idea, a standard double airbed can take up the space of around 3 people.
  • How much extra space you may need for storage of Clothing etc.

Our suggestion would be a family of 4 would really require a 6+ berth tent to allow for extra space.

Do i need to Weather a new tent?

When a tent is manufactured the needle used for the stitching is thicker than the thread. Therefore all tents need time to weather or also known as wetting out. By getting the tent wet and dry a few times, this tightens the stitching and the fabric and creates a better natural bond in the fire.

Most people will pitch their tent in the garden as per above, but its worth getting it wet and dry either by rain or with a garden hose. With the first couple uses you may find the odd seam or hanging point drip in, these will naturally seal over  time the more the tent is wetted out and dried. Polly cotton tents are more prone to this due to the high volume of cotton, but experience has taught us all tents need weathering.

What is Condensation & How to reduce it?

Has my tent leaked, or is it condensation?

If you have been unlucky enough to find water in your tent, it is very unlikely that your tent has leaked. Vango tents are made to the highest specification using quality materials and components. From tough, waterproof fabrics to strong stitching techniques and sealed seams, your tent is designed to keep the weather out.


How much condensation can form in a tent?

Did you know that 1 person can produce up to 1 pint of condensation per night? So, let’s say you have 5 people in a tent, that is potentially 5 pints of water inside your tent! Other likely sources of moisture are wet shoes, clothes, dogs, cooking, even the air itself! Warm air can hold more moisture than cold air, as the temperature falls at night the more moisture is released into the air. Fact, even without occupants, the air in a six-man tent holds approximately 1 pint of water!

What causes condensation in tents?

Air temperature in the tent can become warm and humid from people, heaters, and a lack of ventilation. When the warm air inside the tent hits the relatively cool fabric of the tent, the moisture condenses into liquid form.

Do all tents suffer from condensation?

Tents designed with good ventilation and an inner tent will fair best. In certain weather conditions, the design of any tent can be overwhelmed by moisture. For example, if it is a cold night and there is no breeze to circulate the warm, moist air out of the tent, condensation is likely to form.

The air, as held within the beams of a Vango AirBeam tent, circulates within the beams. If the outside temperature is much cooler than that inside the tent, then the cooling of the air in the beams is quite quick. The warm, humid air inside the tent then condensates onto the area of the beams inside the tent. This moisture can then appear as water droplets on the AirBeams and in some cases may create pools of water at the base of the AirBeams. If the prevailing conditions are particularly prone to condensation, remove items from around the base of beams.

What weather conditions can make condensation worse?

Condensation can be made worse when the air outside the tent is significantly cooler than inside, especially after a warm, humid day. On days where there is a substantial temperature drop, it can be challenging to prevent tent condensation forming.

Rainy conditions can also increase the chances of condensation occurring, often leading to the appearance of a leaking tent. Rain water on the outside of the tent, or rain water evaporating off the outer surface of the tent causes the temperature of the fabric to decrease, leading to more rapid condensation as the air inside the tent comes into contact with it.


My tent is wet from condensation, what should I do?

Wiping the walls with a towel or cloth is a good way to remove condensation from the surface and stop any drips. On polycotton, avoid pressing against the sides of the tents as this can cause water to seep through. If you are staying in one location, remove all wet items from the tent and dry them so that they don’t create more moisture the next night. Dry and ventilate your tent as best as you can. Tents can be slow to dry on cold mornings. If you are trekking, you may wish to pack your tent and dry it out properly in the midday sun.

How can you prevent condensation in your tent?

Here are our top tips for a dry night!

    Ventilate your tent!: The most effective way to prevent condensation is to ventilate your tent and reduce the internal humidity of your tent by promoting a good airflow. Examine your tent for low and high venting options and open them to let the moist air flow out. If the weather conditions permit, leave the upper and lower sections of the door open, mesh sections can be kept fully zipped. If appropriate, also ensure vents at the rear of the tent are fully open. Make sure the vents are not obstructed by bags or sleeping bodies.

    Store wet stuff outside: Towels, boots, waterproofs, swimming trunks, sweaty friends… keep that soggy, wet stuff out of the tent. Use an awning, tarp or hub to provide storage for wet kit.

    Don’t touch the sides: If pressure is applied to the tent walls of a polycotton tent, water may seep through. Keep bags and other items away from tent walls and be mindful that condensation can collect at the foot of AirBeams.

    Never cook inside: Primarily for safety but cooking also releases large amounts of moisture into the air. Remember that extractor fan in the kitchen at home?

    Turn heaters off: Further warming the air inside the tent will increase water vapour in the air as warm air can support more moisture (our techy guys talk about dew points and percentage humidity), plus the warmer the tent is the more moisture will be released into the tent through evaporation and perspiration. Instead of heating the tent, warm yourself up with the right clothing and good sleeping bags.

    Pitch in a spot that gets a natural breeze: Sheltered areas are more prone to generating condensation. Pitch your tent so that vents are lined up with the prevailing winds.

    Don’t pitch too close to water: Rivers and lakes can increase humidity. Pitching your tent, a little further away from water sources can help reduce condensation.

    Take spare towels: In some weather conditions condensation is difficult to avoid. Reduce it using the steps above and pack a spare towel to simply wipe it away.

How do i store my Tent & does it need to be dry?

When packing away your tent it must be completely dry both inside and out. If you have to pack your tent away wet on site then please get it out as soon as your home. Mildew / mould is caused by putting tents away wet and one of the biggest causes for tents degrading. This includes poles and muddy pegs.

 

Tents must be stored in a cool dry location, free from chances of damp or damage caused by rodents.

 

How tight should Guyropes be? and how to adjust them.

Guy ropes need to have enough tension to both hold the tent but  also to allow it to move. Guy ropes should not be over tight. Its worth adjusting these in the morning or evening. If its wet or cold the fabric can become looser and will need tightening. If you are due to have a warm dry day slacken your guy points to allow the tent to tighten up.
