Vango Galli II Compact RSV Low Awning (2018)
- Ideal for Left Hand Drive Vans
- Attaches to vans 180-210cm tall
The Vango Galli Compact RSV Low awning is suitable for left hand drive vehicles, making it more suitable for the European market. The RSV version, can be used with the UK vans, but the awning will face towards the rear of the vehicle, when attached to the passenger’s side door. The Galli compact is a smaller version of the market leading Galli awning, and will be ideal for those wanting a more compact awning, with a more compact pack size and a lighter weight. The compact will create an auxiliary area to the side of the van for cooking, relaxing, storage and sleeping space. Furthermore, the Galli’s design allows it to sit sideways onto the van, with a side connecting area, making more use of the space on a standard camping pitch at campsites.

|Fabric Denier||420 Denier (RipStop) |
Denier - a measurement used to determine the thickness of the tent flysheet. It relates to the fibre thickness, or thread counts used. The thicker the fabric, generally the stronger, and more durable the fabric will be. The denier really reflects the lifetime to be expected of the tent, and how quickly, it will be affected by UV Degradation.
|Awning Type||VW Style Drive-Away |
Seasonal: A caravan awning specifically designed for touring, and temporary camping pitches. Ideal for fair weather campers, needing an awning for shorter trips. Usually uses lighter fabrics, for easier portability, and easier pitching.
Residential: Ideal for those camping for longer durations, wanting an awning that can be left pitched all season, or for a month or more at a time. Residential awnings usually use heavier weight fabrics, designed to last longer, and not fade as fast in the UV sunshine rays.
DriveAway VW Awnings: Designed to go onto VW or similar vans, or motorhomes with the correct attachment height. Can be left free-standing at the site if you need your vehicle to get off-site.
Fixed VW Awnings: Reliant on the van or motorhome for the structure of the product. Van cannot be removed offsite once the awning is set up.

|Year of Manufacture||2018|
|Hydrostatic Head (mm)||6000 |
Hydrostatic Head (Tents) – a waterproof rating for technical fabrics measured in mm. The higher the rating the more waterproof the fabric is. A rating of 1500mm is deemed waterproof, but on a tent, look for a rating of 3000 or higher. Measured by the height of water column a fabric weave can take before it begins to “sweat”. “Polycotton” tents will not have a Hydrostatic Head level, as they are not treated for waterproofing.

|Flysheet Fabric||Sentinel Pro 420 polyester denier, with double ripstop thread for a heavier duty temporary awning, which can take a beating from the sun and the elements. |
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.
|Groundsheet Fabric||Polyethylene sewn-in groundsheet|
|Window Fabric||Diamond clear windows with zipped windows|
Double Skin Tent – A tent with an inner bedroom and a flysheet, most family tents are designed as a “Double Skin tent”, as it makes the tent more comfortable, and lessens the effects of condensation.
