Vango Air Beam Varkala II 520

A great caravan awning which has been very much improved and enhanced in 2017. Vango have made the Vango Air Beam Varkala II 520 one of the largest awnings on the market providing a huge living space with their much talked about and patented Airbeam inflatable technology. The Airbeam system secures to the side of your caravan and can be pitched in just ten minutes. A very welcome advantage when arriving on the caravan site. Offering an abundance of standing standing height, large diamond windows with up to four entrance / exit points, this outstanding awning is the perfect investment for that large family.

All Vango caravan air awnings are quick and easy to setup removing the stress out of setting up when you arrive on that much needed break. Taking just minutes to setup, and seconds to deflate, this popular awning has the added advantage of extra sleeping space with the option to add an additional bedroom and hanging storage by way of a pre-attached kador which sits comfortably to your caravan. This conservatory style space is possible with the Varkala Awning along with diamond clear windows, zip up curtains  and a full mesh option on the side windows providing much needed ventilation on those hot summer days.

The Vango Air Beam Varkala Awning also offers outstanding flexibility as the front doors can be fully removed if desired, rolled to the side and unzipped from the top. These superior air awnings have been created utilising the super strength Pro 420 double rip stop material, providing long lasting durability as well as outstanding looks. Get the very best inflatable air awning for your next camping trip with this award winning awning and become the envy of your peers on the campsite!
