The premium eight berth Airedale 8.0 inflatable family tunnel tent is a BRAND NEW model introduced for the upcoming season, which is set to revolutionize the camping industry with its perfect balance of configurations, flexibility, space and breathability; providing a middle ground between the Airedale 7.0 and 12.0. A cavernous interior makes this beast of a tent the preferred choice for extra-large groups or families who desire a ‘home away from home’, allocating usable space between a large front porch, enormous living area and dark-roofed six person bedroom; despite the size, the Airedale 8.0 is incredibly easy to erect and has a superb strength to weight ratio. An optional two berth inner tent can be purchased to increase the sleeping capacity to ten, making it ideal for sleeping any unexpected overnight guests.
The 180HDE all weather fabric which the Airedale 8.0 is produced from is specifically engineered to deliver exceptionally lightweight, yet robust products, allowing smaller pack sizes when folded; perfect where weight and space limitations are of consideration. This contemporary material features a 4,000mm² hydrostatic head (waterproof rating) and employs fully taped seams throughout, meaning it is exceptionally waterproof and rain will simply bead onto the surface, before rolling off. A lighter coloured roof material reflects heat, helping to maximise fade resistance and maintain a consistently comfortable internal temperature.
The Oxygen Air-Frame is the quickest, simplest and most reliable inflation system on the market, with no adjoining pipes/taps spoiling the immaculate lines of our stunning designs, comprising our inflatable high pressure sextuple tube air frame technology, the famed Dynamic Speed Valve and patented Intelligent Frame Relief Valve. Inflation is rapid using the pump provided, whilst deflation is available at the push of the self-retainer button; our exclusive pressure relief valve prevents damage to the tube by expelling any excess air above 6PSI, which is typically caused by over inflation or changes in the ambient temperature. All valves are discretely concealed by a velcro cover for a tidier finish. The Oxygen Air Frame has been quality controlled to ensure optimal performance and features our exclusive Lifetime Guarantee* for peace of mind in years to come.
Expansive tinted anti-glare windows grant a panoramic vista of the surrounding environment and protect you from harmful UV rays, whilst increasing privacy and illuminating the interior throughout the day; these are accompanied by zip-up curtains, which can be zipped fully out and rolled back, or zipped completely in for maximum privacy at night. A PE groundsheet has been fully sewn-in to add convenience when pitching, reduce water ingression, and help prevent bugs from accessing the tent. This model features an internal two thirds zip-back divider door, accompanied by large windows and zip-in blinds, creating a welcoming porch area for relaxing or dining al fresco, regardless of the weather! We have implemented breathable zip-back Phoenix Mesh ventilation fly screen panels in the right hand side door, front divider door and upper left hand side window, in order to optimise air circulation and keep insects at bay; this is partnered with an internal PVC storm cover for maximum protection against the elements in adverse weather conditions. The integral left-hand side eyebrow canopy is easily and firmly secured using a single fibreglass pole, granting a sheltered mini porch area, designed to keep your side access door fully dry and grant a convenient area for tying shoelaces.
The breathable eight berth micro-polyester inner tent can be clipped in to provide a luxurious sleeping area, designed to accommodate up to eight average adults or four double air beds; this includes zipped dividers to give you the choice of segmenting this sleeping area into three bedroom into a single four berth and two separate two berth compartments. The end bedroom can also be zipped off completely to create further living space, should you wish to. This inner tent has been considerably enlarged to cater for larger air mattresses and is produced from our new ‘twilight’ fabric, making it much darker in colour than in previous years, in order to cut down on exterior light and help you attain a deep, cosy and uninterrupted sleep by nature. We have strategically positioned four spacious mesh pockets on the exterior for storing any footwear, books, valuables or other items you require close at hand.
The Airedale 8.0 comes complete with steel ground pegs, storm straps, a double action hand pump, a repair kit, an instruction manual, two berth inner tent attachment points and an inclusive carry bag. This model also features reflective high visibility guylines to reduce the risk of tripping, Velcro attachment points to accommodate our optional LED lighting range, as well as a cable access point extending to the bedroom. A wealth of complementary optional extras are also available for purchase with this model, including a made to measure stone protection footprint groundsheet, a luxurious snug rug camping carpet, a cut to size waterproof roof liner and a coordinating windbreak.
