The Vango Exclusive Airbeam Front Awning 600 is specifically designed to match two tents within the Vango collection, the Edoras 600xl and the Rivendale 800xl. Both of these tents have a full zip on the porch for attaching the awning securely. The Awning will also not fit last year's (2016) tents, and will only fit the 2017 tents, due to the change in the connection fitting. The awning is designed to add more living space to the front of either of the tents, and offers an enclosed porch area for added storage, cooking and living space.

150 Denier polyester fabric
Polyester – a synthetic fibre, made from polymer units to create a textile fabric. Polyester is the most popular fabric for tent manufacturing, as it is durable, reliable and lighter in weight. Polyester does not breathe though, which creates more condensation.
Polycotton - a blend of polyester and cotton, primarily cotton (usually around 65% cotton / 35% polyester split). Polycotton is a more natural fabric for camping, as it is breathable, far more durable material, reducing the effects of condensation. Offers greater versatility in hot and cold climates.
Ripstop Nylon – a durable material used in tents which is strong and repairable due to its Ripstop properties.

Most tent structure are either Airbeam or Poled in design, both have advantages and disadvantages. Air tents are quicker to pitch, but more expensive when compated to traditional pole style tents. Some tents are hybrids, and combine poles and air technologies.
Fire Retardant – all modern tent fabrics are fire-retardant under EN5912 European Safety Laws. Caution with fire must always be used, as flame retardant fabrics, will still catch fire given the right circumstances.
