Help, does anyone know how wide a Vango Diablo 600 is?

We've left it to the last minute to book a site as we were worried about finding ourselves underwater and are now getting a bit panicky! A couple of sites that look likely say that their standard pitches are 7m x 7m and I'm not sure if our tent will fit. We can't afford to pay for two pitches. Does anyone who has a Vango know the answer or can anyone who is better at maths than me work it out from these measurements?

Thanks very much.

We have the same tent and have had fun getting it to fit in small spaces. It will fit in 7x7 but you'll have to juggle it and the guy ropes will be a challenge. Tent's worth it, bomb proof in the rain but a trial putting up it its raining. Be prepared to swear a lot and have some cold wine on hand once its up!

Thanks Brownlow, I was thinking it would probably just about fit at an angle if we are not on a site that fusses about everyone facing the same direction but it is such an awkward shape it's hard to tell. We did test the tent at half-term and it was definitely dry and cosy in some pretty rough weather. We were camping with other family members and they were able to go the day before us (due to dh's work) so took our tent and put it up to make sure we got two pitches together. We had to endure the rest of the week hearing about how it had taken them 3 hours in the pouring rain and never again blah blah blah. This trip will be our first go at putting it up by ourselves and I'm determined we will do it really quickly so we can say "don't know what all the fuss was about, we had no trouble!"..
