The Vango Capri XL Side Awning, new for 2018, matches up to the XL Capri range of tents (excludes 800xl), offering lots of versatile living space to the side entrance of the tent. The new awning design has a much snugger fit to the side of the Airbeam tent, and is quick and simple to erect, due to the inflatable design. Furthermore, the awning fully encloses to create an enclosed porch space.
